Project management and defect management software for the construction site
Apps for mobile phones with project management and defect management software improve the display of progress on the construction site. The recording of progress and defects is displayed more quickly and accurately and is forwarded to the responsible parties. The apps are thus integrated into the overall project tracking. These are four of its most important functions:
Tracking on site
On-site tracking is the function that is most important in apps for the construction site. Especially the handling of defects allows modern technology to show its strengths: If a problem is detected, the correction can be started immediately. The installation on mobile devices, such as smartphones or tablets, allows an exact recording through image and video recordings, in addition to the description of the problem. In the app, the measures to be taken can be directly assigned to the persons responsible. If the problem has been successfully resolved, the process can be checked again on site and accordingly completed.
Construction sites for mechanical and plant engineering are often located deep inside factory buildings. Mobile phone reception or network connection is therefore not always given. Respectively, it is important to have an application that reliably fulfills its function for project management in plant construction even without a connection to the outside world.
Nothing would be more annoying than a carefully filled out protocol that gets lost because there was no internet connection and nothing could be uploaded. Local storage on the respective device is therefore particularly important – the file is saved and forwarded as soon as a corresponding connection is established.
The more the user interface is easy to understand, the better it is to work with. This simple calculation should be the guiding principle for a construction site app. If images and videos can be easily integrated and each field on the screen has a clearly visible function, progress and defect tracking with the software is much faster from the first moment.
The processes and structures in defect management are different in every company. A flexible defect management software that can be adapted to the corresponding processes is a clear advantage in terms of adopting familiar working methods and getting used to them quickly. This is especially the case for the application via an app, which should offer clear advantages in terms of usability and speed.
