Today’s heavy work crews and public infrastructure workers have new cutting-edge tools at their disposal. For one thing, think about the greater set of software tools that are common in the industry. Having sophisticated software in hand allows these companies and their employees to get more efficient at locating, altering and shoring up site work and providing safe, effective solutions in busy areas.
Here are some of the aspects of what we offer at DocuSite to help companies practice a more capable business model.
Speech-to-text Note-taking Capability
In the natural language processing world, speech-to-text has been a major revolution over the past 10 years. But as many of us already know from experience, tools like Siri and Alexa are not especially good at creating a high-quality, accurate speech to text translation, especially for longer formats.
DocuSite’s internal speech-to-text engine helps busy professionals to dictate on the ground – describing project conditions, identifying bottlenecks or obstacles, and thoroughly documenting a site without typing or tapping away.
The speech-to-text component is a major part of how crews move seamlessly through site work using our innovative software suite. When you are able to simply document the site verbally, that field research becomes valuable later on, and that’s why we have integrated this feature set into our workflow model.
Video Recording Features
Some people call it ‘site supervision and documentation’ – the idea of using video to fully capture the reality at a job site can decrease risk and increase efficiency in many ways. For example, looking at available video remotely, planners can more capably deal with offsets or special circumstances where work has to be rerouted. They can utilize on-site video in assessing the impact of weather conditions, local traffic and much more. Planning is a complex process that happens on a timeline – without these supplementary tools, companies are too often left planning in a vacuum. There just isn’t the quality of data in hand to support efficiency. We can change all of that.
GPS and Time-stamped Images
Another component of our package is the ability to time-stamp images and create GPS locations for assets. Public works crews often already do this – but having it baked into a bigger toolbox provides that interoperability that drives job performance.
