Construction workers have, for a long time, been deemed high-risk workers due to the conditions of the environment that they spend the majority of their time in. With the average construction worker working around 9-hours a day, mental impairment from focusing on the job for so long has become a sort of unspoken norm within the industry. Muscular/skeletal dis-trophy is also prevalent among construction workers, as a Harvard study stated over 50% of construction workers will experience crippling back-pain at some point throughout their career. Suicide rates among construction workers are also extremely high, which could also play into the mental distress that these workers have to endure on a daily basis.
But what does this have to do with apps? While apps will not save a construction worker from back-pain, it may ease the mental burden of having to do reports at the end of the day. These reports could take up to a few hours depending on the work that was completed. And let’s face it, after a long day of lifting, carrying, walking, and fearing for your life, being able to do the final part of your job in a couple of minutes could do wonders on one’s mental health.

So how can Snappii help?
No more paper!
Paper has been a thorn in the construction industries side for years. While effective and portable, it’s also fragile and easy to lose. In a world with dirt flying around in every which way, and power tools cranking their motors literally all day, paper is just susceptible to too many of the climates harsh circumstances.
Apps can be downloaded on the device that most of your employees already own and use on the daily – their phones. Utilizing the technology of mobile apps, a worker can pull their phone out and press a few buttons to get into their forms. Once they’ve made it to the form, there’s a few options that the admin can chose for the workers to complete the form.
The most popular one is voice notes. Voice notes allow the user to simply dictate rather than having to type in all the information for the report. Naturally, the forms are digital, so these voice notes will get emailed as an attachment to the receiver. This alone can take hours out of your log-time at the end of the day, and coupled with other shortcuts like radio buttons and drop-down menu’s, the possibilities are endless.
Have your forms anytime, anywhere
Digital means portable. Instead of having to carry around a portfolio of different forms that you may or may not use, your smartphone can carry all of them at once. If you ever need to add more templates, it’s as easy as going on to the website and creating a new form, then adding it to your account. If that doesn’t sound like something that would be easy, you can always call our team to create the necessary form for you for much less than you think it would cost.
On top of that, if you ever lose a form in transit or if the phone goes through a unfix-able accident (knock of wood), you can always access the forms you’ve already submitted via the website by clicking into “My Account”. The forms can also be filtered and organized based on date, name, or whatever other parameter needed. This makes it almost impossible to lose a form after it’s been submitted, and makes it a lot easier to find than searching through dozens of filing cabinets.
Snappii’s here to help, and we’ve been helping companies big and small for years. We know the type of reliability it takes to work in this industry, and we’re committed to meeting you there everyday.
Take that last hour of the day to meditate rather than stressing about getting your paperwork done. You’re mind will thank you for it later.
