In part one of our article, we highlighted four ways that contractors can use mobile technology. In this final article, we’ll discuss three more ways to use mobile technology.
With the ever-increasing safety standards enforced by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), it’s a good idea to find ways to stay on top of safety on the job site. There are apps available to help you stay in compliance with OSHA by allowing you to schedule and document safety meetings and view incident reports. As always, if you need assistance with OSHA-related compliance, a Boca Raton construction lawyer from Cotney Construction Law can help you better position yourself to defend yourself against OSHA claims.
Collecting Field Data
What you could spend hours doing can be cut down into minutes when you use an app to conduct field data collections. Mobile apps on the market will allow you to customize and accelerate your processes. You will be able to capture photos, create forms, perform calculations, and send emails and files.
The Bidding Process
Bidding is a natural part of the construction process that enables contractors to land clients. To ensure you are optimizing the process to win projects, you want to use mobile technology to help you centralize the bidding process for everyone. Give key persons access to the project details so everyone can collaborate on the bid project details (i.e., deadlines, bid invitations). Leveraging the right technology will increase the speed and accuracy of your bids. On another note, if you find that you want to protest a bid, a Boca Raton construction lawyer can assist you with the bid protest process.
