Our VP of Product, Ian Ouellette weighs in on the evolution of construction technology in an article for Construction Business Owner.
2007 saw the advent of the smartphone with Apple’s release of the iPhone, combining web browsing, music player, GPS navigation, high-definition photo capture, texting, calendar, vocal dictation, weather report and mobile phone functionality in a single device—a game-changer not only for personal activity, but for business as well.
“It’s all about the mobile connectivity. People are able to replay and consume information remotely though Wi-Fi-enabled mobile devices, largely doing what used to be done with pen and paper on-site, anywhere and anytime. Speed, volume and latency of data has really increased since Wi-Fi. The data we used to enter ourselves is now captured by video and modeling,” said Ouellette.
