Eliminate the Pain Points in Your Construction Tracking

The construction industry is poised for a boom, with economists predicting a “very busy” outlook. However, competition for these jobs is also growing stronger by the day. For construction companies to remain competitive, they must overcome common management pain points to deliver top-tier service and results.

Are friction and inefficiencies in your construction tracking are holding you back? Let’s discuss common pain points in the industry and tools you can leverage to eliminate these roadblocks to success.

The Primary Pain Points in Construction Tracking

Manual Processes, Data Entry, and Reconciliation

Surveys from TrackVia found that almost half of construction managers capture necessary jobsite data manually, while one-third continue to use a pen and paper to track data. So even if construction professionals are passionate about delivering exceptional results, they may be undermined by manual processes that are woefully outdated, time-consuming, and can easily create more problems than they solve.

You may be accustomed to an “old-school” approach, but manual data entry often leads to inaccurate or missing project information, especially when data must be re-entered at multiple points or in multiple systems. This creates opportunities for inconsistencies and human error, which in turn cause project delays, conflict, and subpar results.

Disjointed Communications

Clear, succinct communication is a crucial component of accurate construction tracking. Frequent miscommunications can severely impact the workflow and completion of a project by causing confusion for stakeholders, contractors, and workers in the field. Surveys suggest that construction professionals spend over 14 hours a week on non-productive tasks — such as correcting mistakes that could have been prevented with proper communication tracking, or searching for project data lost in an old email chain or call notes.

Siloed Data

The partner of disjointed communications, data silos can cause significant issues throughout a construction project. A project’s workforce often includes multiple teams and trade partners scattered across offices and worksites. If vital project data is not made broadly available to each relevant group, valuable information can easily be misconstrued or lost, leading to costly project delays and errors.
