As a construction professional you’re always on the go. Mobile technology and field-based apps offer the efficiency and accuracy you need when it comes to real-time information gathering and team collaboration. At Zutec, we’ve seen mobile adoption grow by 35% over the past two years and we’ve responded with features which make your construction life easier, both on-site and in the office.
With Zutec you can completely digitise your inspections processes with custom checklists and forms. This means that audits and inspections can be planned out from a desktop and pushed to mobile devices for on-site completion. However in a high-risk environment like construction, accountability and evidence are important, so we’ve added these extra features:
This is of particular benefit when internet connectivity is an issue, which is often the case on construction sites. Signatures can still be captured securely for multiple users on one hand-held device. Clients can easily sign off on inspections from any location, no matter how remote. When the device is synced this data will be stored securely in Zutec Cloud.
Construction inspection hold points are particularly important when work cannot be inspected later because a problem could be covered up. Therefore construction activity is put on hold until the inspection is complete. Unsurprisingly, an efficient turnaround is of utmost importance so integrating hold-points into digital inspections is a no-brainer. With Zutec Field, there may be hold-points through an inspection whereby sign-off and approval is required before moving to the next stage of the inspection. This feature connects to our digital signature and pin code security options, meaning that multiple stakeholders can sign off from any location, at various points throughout the inspection process.
With Zutec Field, your team can now instantly see a real-time status report on their progress across various tasks. They can filter a record set to be able to prioritise tasks easily and monitor their progress. All of this connects back to Zutec Cloud for office-based users to track the bigger picture.
Red-lining has been around construction for years and now it’s available digitally within your drawings in the Zutec Field App. Your field-based team-members can mark-up drawings and models and link the new information directly to pre-existing layers of information. Why is this important? Say for example one of your engineers is snagging a room, they can tag an issue directly to the layer of information it applies to as well as those responsible for that information. So if an architectural drawing doesn’t perfectly match the dimensions of the room, the architect will receive notification immediately and can rectify the issue in real time, by superseding with new versions. As a result, project communication and collaboration across stakeholders becomes more efficient and productive.
As well as mobile apps and features, the Zutec platform empowers entire construction teams to work more collaboratively across the project lifecycle from CDE (Common Data Environment) to Handover and O&Ms solutions.
Zutec has been listening closely to the construction industry’s needs for over two decades now. We have worked on some of the world’s most impressive construction projects as well as many of the smaller (in many cases, more important) projects which enable populations to live their lives in comfort and safety.
