– etc.

When linked to a special mobile software, drones can provide even more opportunities. This year LAANC (Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability) opened up 99% of US airspace to drones.

Lean building: when less is more efficient

Construction is one of the world economy’s largest sectors. According to a McKinsey & Co. report, under economic strains, it’s all the most important for the construction industry to clamp down on inefficiency and improve productivity levels. Lean building is a solution, which allows eliminating waste in all construction fields, and contributes to rational and productive business. For example, avoidance of excess materials and overlapping in a workflow, accurate planning and creating strategies, in-time deliveries and decision-making.

Mobile software for construction can become a useful assistance in the lean building. Construction apps contribute to more accurate and timely data, constant communication between different construction departments, efficient management, tracking, inspection and more.

Eco-building: eco means smart

From year to year, eco-friendly trend is becoming more and more popular in construction industry. There are some points to pay special attention in 2019.

Energy efficiency is one of them. Energy-efficient buildings of course, include solar panels and batteries. Moreover, modern building developers prefer super-insulating materials and smart energy systems, which contribute to secure energy supply while reducing carbon emissions. Construction specialists predict the rise of such sustainable energy sources in construction as biogas, wind energy, and geothermal energy.

Eco-friendly concrete is a mandatory component of successful construction company in 2019. Concrete manufactured from glass, paper, and foam is used as a substitute for traditional concrete. Since concrete is the most widely consumed material in the construction industry, this accounts for a whopping 9.5% of global emissions. Also concrete requires constant costly maintenance and repairs. This way, the innovative self-healing concrete is helpful for the environment as well as for the economy.

Now some construction companies have an interest to such materials as recycled plastic, wood, mycelium, hempcrete, etc. 2019 will provide even more eco-friendly solutions and strengthen their use.

Obviously, enterprise mobile apps have different purposes from the consumer apps but there is one common goal: to provide an engaging experience that will improve a certain process. Let’s consider how modern enterprise apps can achieve this and what other benefits they can provide to the businesses.

Empower the field teams with mobile forms

Customization is also the key for enterprise apps. Every business is wholly unique as well as each of its departments. Custom enterprise apps should meet specific needs of a given business.

“Nicholas Wareing, CEO Vision Elevators. Vision Elevators (Pty) Ltd provides mobility solutions to corporations and individuals throughout Southern Africa.”

“What challenge were you trying to address with Snappii?”

“Two of our key business processes, time management recording and preventative maintenance recording were reliant on administrative capturing into our ERP system. Not only was this time consuming and prone to inaccuracies but also resulted in delays in information being available for decision making.”

“What was the scope of Snappii’s involvement?”

“The main idea for the application was to use webservices to provide the app with the required information for the infield users direct from the ERP system and then allow the infield users to complete additional information on the app and feed this back immediately to the ERP system direct from their mobile devices.

Snappii was involved in creating the app and assisting in ensuring the information flowing inbound and outbound from the webservices was correctly linked and integrated.”

“How did you come to work with Snappii?”

“After researching companies online, we discovered Snappii and found their platform was the most user friendly of those we researched. They also had the ability to link with webservices and had all the other components/features available that we required. After meetings with Alex and the team we were impressed with their understanding of our requirements and the decision was made to begin the implementation with Snappii.”

“Are you happy with the result?”

“Yes, we have achieved what we set out to do and have saved approximately 40 hours a week in manual processing. The information we are now receiving is more accurate and is live.”

“What did you find most impressive about them?”

“The Snappii platform and their editor are very impressive. With some basic understanding you are able to quickly and easily develop the app as you require. We are now in the process of adding additional functionally to the app that will extend to different area in our business.”

Improve Project Documentation and Go Paperless

Read how Harold Brothers Mechanical contractors in MASS improved project documentation and went paperless.

“Introduce your business and what you do there.”

“Steven Koski, Outside Labor Superintendent/Safety Officer, Harold Brothers Mechanical. Harold Brothers Mechanical Contractors, Inc. is a privately held mechanical construction company based in Eastern Massachusetts. Being a full service organization we are able to provide total mechanical construction including HVAC, Plumbing, process piping, refrigeration, pre-fabrication, rigging, energy management and temperature control.”

“What challenge were you trying to address with Snappii?”

“The business challenge was lack of good project documentation. Without it, it is hard to prove in court what was or was not done and what Harold Brothers delivered. Documentation is also needed to prove to clients why something was not done as agreed. For example, the client or the site was not ready when Harold Brothers’ people show up. Good documentation is also critical for planning how to deploy crew members on various projects. Biggest challenge is training especially for seasoned Foremen. To over come we did extra training.

There is a large amount of Foremen in the field who are doing the Daily Reports. Harold Bros has a substantial amount of people working in the field and about 40 in the office. I personally manage all of the Outside projects at one time.

Our team needs to fill in a decent amount of forms on a daily basis. Forms can get lost, not always delivered to the office, it’s hard to read sometimes what it says, etc. We know that businesses have been turning to mobile forms lately and we decided to give it a try and convert our paper-based process into mobile forms app. We wanted to automate manual processes, share documents, track tasks, and collect and store data with mobile forms. Besides, we needed to improve collaboration between the field and office teams.”

“What was the scope of Snappii’s involvement?”

“The main idea for the application was to convert our existing paper forms we use on a daily basis. We needed to organize Timesheets, Pipe test reports, HVAC and Plumbing sheets, as well as track job on site daily reports.

We were also looking for the following features:

– Automated time sheet reporting — time sheets to automatically be emailed to appropriate individual’s EOD Fridays

– Signature fields

– Input fields

– Calculations

– Forms to be saved in the app

– Forms to be custom PDF output and Excel output

We also needed the app to be used internally in our organization as well as control who has access to it.”

“How did you come to work with Snappii?”

“We found them online and looked at several of their past apps. We have been testing the daily log app with some of our foremen and really like the look and use of that one. So we decided to give them a try.”

“Are you happy with the result?”

“We’re really happy with the progress. The app has been published privately and shared among specific list of people. The app has user-based access. Now it literary takes a few minutes to fill out the report, sign and send it. We receive a convenient PDF output that’s stored in the app and also can be shared via email, cloud drives and printed, if needed.

Snappii’s QA team used some automated and manual tests on performance and troubleshooting and found the app to be stable. I can’t blame them for any issues because it’s up and running. I’m sure it will work fine moving forward.

All our employees were trained how to use the app. In future we expect to cut down time and expenses significantly using this mobile app. ”

“How did Snappii perform from a project management standpoint?”

“The process was straightforward, fast, and pleasant. We had phone calls and email conversations to make sure the app will work exactly how we needed. They were really proactive and responsive. We are quite satisfied.”

“What did you find most impressive about them?”

“They’re really responsive. We were interested in getting the app as soon as possible. We are very satisfied with the collaboration; the Snappii team was responsive and provided good communication. We are impressed with their stability. Snappii has been present in this industry since 2011, and they’ve created many apps which we downloaded and reviewed ourselves, finding them to be stable.”
