At DocuSite, when we started to put together our innovative digital products for the construction industry, we realized that some of the smaller firms were at a distinct disadvantage.
Big construction companies are able to invest in all sorts of extras to streamline and expedite their workflows. They tend to have the best equipment, the best talent, and the best software.
Small to midsized businesses do their best to compete, but sometimes it’s helpful to have innovations structured for their particular needs.
One of the key needs of any construction business is the free flow of data. Without good site documentation and related tools, it’s easy to lose transparency and fall behind in the overall process of top-level management. The typical company has a full slate of projects and needs to scale accordingly, but if they don’t have the right access to information, it becomes harder to do.
Utilities and Risk
Companies engaging in underground construction projects face some pretty daunting risks involving underground utilities.
States have set up their own systems to help educate contractors and homeowners, as well as other parties, but those risks still remain. Any time there’s earthmoving or other invasive work being done, it’s incredibly important to have accurate knowledge of underground utilities, and to plan for any unanticipated problems.
Our platform helps manage those risks in a proactive way. We designed this especially for companies that have to deal with proximity to underground gas lines, sewer lines, water lines and other utilities. State systems do some of this work, but they often don’t go far enough without initiative on the part of the contractor. Utilize our system for better job security on-site.
