Custom Business Mobile Apps Will Enhance Productivity in the Construction Industryby Anand Mahajan CEO @Mobile App Development Company
In terms of software and hardware development, mobile technology has leaped forward in last decade. We are in the age wherein technology has made everything and anything possible. However, it is not at all possible that every idea is plausible in today’s tough marketing and economic world. How much will mobile technology survive in the near future is definitely not a question to ask; instead, which features do people want in their mobile apps and what are they willing to pay for it are the right questions to ask.
The purpose of this article is to find out hidden potential of custom business mobile apps in the construction industry. Already construction industry is using digital technology that is suitable for their demands. Still, some modifications and few more applications are needed by the industry that would enhance its productivity and efficiency.
Points to Consider before Offering Custom Business Mobile Apps to the Construction Industry
In order to analyze how mobile technology could bring value to the construction industry, there are few questions that need to be answered.
· How and when a construction company could use mobile devices during a project and are the devices durable enough for their proposed objective?
· Do mobile apps have enough potential to reduce or negate the bottlenecks in a construction project?
· Is mobile technology efficient enough to extend its support to manage human administrative tasks and equipment resource for the construction company?
Customized Business Mobile Apps Will Resolve Construction Industry Issues
Despite the rise in complexity and associated risks in the construction sector, the industry has failed to understand the potential of mobile technology. Mere 8% worldwide construction companies can be considered as visionaries using cutting-edge technologies and only about 20% are positive that they are aggressively disrupting their business models.
Although construction industry is one of the sound technology users equipped with loads of tools and platforms, they surely lack the solutions offering useful insights. Almost one-third of the global construction companies are not using data analytic tools for project estimations and performance monitoring.
No wonder majority of construction companies are held back due to manual processes and multiple systems prone to human errors. Only about 20% construction companies have fully mobile integrated Project Management Information System (PMIS) across the enterprise.
Even though construction industry along with other industries has understood the huge potential mobile technology has for the independent niches, only one-third of the industrial players are using mobile apps routinely. On the contrary, remaining players of the construction industry are nowhere near any kind of mobile platform.
Undoubtedly, construction is a labor-intensive industry relying on many constructions trades and artisans using different tools just to execute one construction project. In such environment, human-induced errors play a major role in diminishing the efficiency.Increasing efficiency and reducing human-induced errors are in fact two major challenges amongst construction companies. The underlying potential of business mobile apps specifically created for construction industry will definitely play a leading role in enhancing production efficiency of the construction industry.
