Low digitalisation

Construction is one of the least digitalised industries, with tech spending at less than 1% of revenue.3

Make better decisions in the field

Field workers have limited time to make the right decisions.

Project information sits in different places with different people. It’s complex and time-consuming to manage information flow. Without good information, decision making and outcomes can be compromised.

With APE Mobile:

  • Streamline information capture so your teams can focus on their core work.
  • Provide your workforce with easy access to the right information.
  • Everyone understands what’s going on.

Minimise budget blowouts

Causes of budget blowouts

Lack of Communication

Inconsistencies in Paperwork

Lack of Coordination

Budget blowouts result from poor onsite communication, disjointed information flow, and lack of coordinated follow-through. Rework alone can account for up to 20% of costs.

 

Obligations for operational and safety compliance generate massive administrative tasks. Many companies struggle to keep on top of the required paperwork. When information doesn’t get to the right people at the right time, delays, damage and loss can increase.   Having a clearer idea of what is happening helps you keep projects on track

With APE Mobile:

  • Everyone’s instantly on the same page with minimal miscommunication or delays.
  • Construction activities progress more quickly, and invoices can be sent sooner to improve cash flow.
  • All to increase project profitability and minimise margin erosion.
