Triax President and COO Pete Schermerhorn caught up with BuiltWorlds to discuss the power of our on-site mesh network, the launch of our Spot-r EquipTag and what all this data means for the construction industry. Read a snippet below and click here for the full article on Spot-r total digital visibility and what it means for boosting site safety and productivity.
Schermerhorn enthusiastically gives examples of how the platform can, and indeed already is, providing highly useful and actionable data. Although it gives managers useful information in the aggregate, with productivity measures for trades and locations on a site, it also goes down to the individual. For example, managers can see what a plumber or electrician was working with on the 17th floor for 36 hours last week.
“Now you know who’s operating every scissor lift,” he says. “You know when that worker got to the site, where he or she spent time, and equipment used.”
All this data is collected over time and can be leveraged to offer historical insights that help managers determine how efficiently personnel and equipment are now being used when compared to past projects. This, in turn, can help them determine the workforce composition and size, and amount of equipment needed, in the next phase or on a future project.
