Samm (APE Mobile) is a site intelligence platform for excellence in construction.


Construction companies rely on our mobile and web application to capture and manage site-related data in real time. This enables everyone in the field and in the office to know what’s going on, make better decisions and get more done. Reduce rework. Be more productive. Achieve construction excellence.

Join our mission to make construction projects easier.


Construction is a tough industry with complex projects, unpredictability and low profit margins. APE Mobile is on a mission to make construction easier by using disruptive technology to make the complex simple and arm you with the information you need. Building on our solid foundation in the field, we are now adding Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) capabilities to bring you answers when and where you need them.

Facilitate best practice onsite and offsite

Cut rework cost by 50%

“Through using APE Mobile and internal cultural change, we’ve more than halved our rework cost.”
– Brion, TCD


Evidence everything


Capturing everything that happens on site can dramatically improve your project outcomes. You can reduce delays and costly rework. And increase compliance. You now have more information at your fingertips to make better decisions.

Manage all your site paperwork in one place


We’re the only app that can handle it all. Site Diaries, Inspection Checklists, and Timesheets. Pre-Starts, Toolbox Talks, Permits and much more. Using your current document templates, you even get digital versions of your current forms.

Capture data intelligently

Annotate Photos

Take photos and annotate them

Add photos to any form and annotate with a range of tools to get your message across clearly.


Use GPS to record location

Pinpoint the location of inspections or stamp timesheets with the exact location plus sign-in / sign-out times.

Digital Signatures

Add digital signatures

Capture sign-off for accountability and add multiple steps and sign-offs if using an approvals workflow.

Risk Matrix

Refer to additional information

Reference a plan, diagram or risk matrix whilst capturing data without having to leave the screen.


Automate with simple (or complex!) formulas

Competent with Excel? Add formulas to forms so that fields complete automatically. Use vlookups and more complex calculations if required. Fast and accurate data made easy.


Add tables to easily capture and view structured data

Tables keep data organised and easy to view, especially on a small screen. Perfect for things like site diaries with lots of people, materials & plant data.

Four times faster turnaround

“(APE Mobile gives us) the ability to meet (our) client needs within three days, reducing turnaround time by 11 days.”

Make better decisions in the field


When project leaders and teams can access and update site data in real-time, they are empowered like never before. This drives timely communication and alerts, minimises mistakes, reduces rework and increases profitability.

Save time with built-in workflows


APE Mobile works the way you do. Customise approval workflows that notify users if they’re accepted or rejected. Trigger alerts to specific people such as high priority faults based on data entered. Auto-generate pre-filled action items (e.g. for defects) whilst doing an inspection.

Built-in Workflows

Complete workflow for inspections


Specify corrective actions and non-conformances and assign them to team mates. Work through and close out actions. And instantly send punch lists in just a few taps. Get things done fast, effortlessly.

Actions and Punchlists

Facilitate collaboration with instant markups


Get everyone on the same page. Simply add drawings and documents to APE Mobile for everyone to see. Annotations & markups are shared in real time. Users can also take snapshots that include annotations and attach to any form. Tap to store for offline use. No more lugging files around site!


Increase cash flow with faster invoicing

“Getting paperwork back to the head office (from remote sites) for processing (no longer takes) 3-6 weeks!”
Ruth, The Kypreos Group

Fewer delays and more insights

“Accurate data, quick calculations, (and) on-site customer signatures (means) the office has real-time access to all site information.”
Stuart, COLAS WA


Generate insights from robust intelligence


Whether you’re in the field or in the office, you need knowledge at your fingertips, not an avalanche of data. Find answers fast, improve performance, and achieve construction excellence.

Make better decisions in the field


Give your field team the information they need when they need it. With APE Mobile, you can view all the project data on your phone or tablet, even when offline. Review yesterday’s inspections. Or retrieve a confined space permit someone issued two days ago. And with synced plan annotations, everyone’s on the same page.

Register and Drawings

Understand what’s happening with instant reporting


Spot issues earlier. Track progress more effectively. With instant reporting, you can even increase cash flow by invoicing customers sooner. Get your payroll sorted in a few clicks. How? By pulling labour hours from different forms such as timesheets and site diaries with a custom export that takes two mins to set up. Or fully automate by connecting to our API.


Connect us to your world


Get more out of your existing systems. Connect through direct integrations, our open API or via Zapier to over 800 applications. Free your team up to do more of the important stuff. They’ll love you for it.

Gain insights into worker progress

“APE Mobile has streamlined our everyday work . . . gone are the days of needing to chase supervisors for outstanding timesheets, JSA’s or daily progress forms!”
