New Integration Technology Breaks Down Construction Industry Productivity Barriers

On-the-go construction workers in the field need to find relevant information quickly from project plans to emails, tasks and schedules – with, or without network coverage. is a digital workforce innovator looking to empower construction personnel with mobile and offline access to critical documents, checklists, emails and more by increasing collaboration capabilities and breaking down productivity barriers.

Construction companies send enormous numbers of project-related emails and documents to a wide variety of employees, contractors, suppliers, vendors and customers. Timely project delivery and smooth operations at building sites depend on the constant exchange of these documents and emails, requiring anytime, anywhere access and intelligent document management to easily find the right information.

Collaboration Should Be Simple

The enterprise collaboration hub helps empower construction personnel to edit, store, classify, retrieve and collaborate on large amounts of data, in both emails and documents, with a few simple clicks on the desktop or from mobile devices. This simplification and automation of the process encourages rapid user adoption and widespread, consistent use of Office 365 and SharePoint in the office and on-site. creates a contextual, single-app activity stream of multiple cloud services from leading enterprise cloud vendors including Microsoft, and NetSuite across mobile devices and desktop computers. For Microsoft customers, increases adoption and return on investments in SharePoint, Office 365 and other Microsoft collaboration products, thereby enabling email management, records management, knowledge retention and notes to Outlook migration initiatives.

“Our field workers need access to critical documents and emails — anytime, anywhere,” says Atilla Kücük, information technology division manager, Leonhard Weiss — serving 4,000 employees throughout Europe. Leonhard Weiss is one of the global companies serves.

“Our employees continuously work with approximately 900 templates to correctly handle construction site application procedures, from setup to handling instructions,” explains Kücük. “This is why enormous volumes of email traffic build up every day. We’ve built a bridge to SharePoint using as a single, central document repository. lets us store, share and access emails as the important documents they are. makes the entire process of document handling easier for the employee, so that use of the SharePoint server has increased massively.” 

Offline, But Still On-track

With more integrated platforms such as, leading construction companies are able to give field workers offline access to important plans, drawings, contact lists and more. In addition, users can annotate PDF documents and drawings and upload pictures from work sites that can be automatically associated with specific building projects — all without relying on network coverage.

The solution also gives workers easy access to task lists, calendar events, etc. on their mobile devices. Once the user reconnects to a network, automatically synchronizes all of the changes.

“ offers a huge boon to construction companies that want to tap into the value of the digital workplace by making sure business-critical emails and documents are not lost in the frenetic pace of today’s business,” says Daren Dewbre, managing consultant for Xgility, another firm that utilizes’s integration technology. “With robust solutions for both the desktop and mobile devices, provides a complete construction solution offering a reliable repository of traditional documents and emails that the average worker can actually use.”

Digital floor plans

More companies are taking advantage of integration platforms and offline task managers that allow work to progress on job sites that are not always served by Internet connections. 

Other applications, like these mentioned by Daily Reporter, also help manage and monitor safety protocols on the job or assist in construction calculations:

  • Safety Meeting and iSafe Inspections cover numerous trades and help construction teams save money by allowing users to automate the type of inspection, including safety audits, work orders, property assessments, asset management and more.

  • BuildCalc, an advanced construction calculator, is easy to use and consistently voted one of the best iPhone and Andriod apps in the construction field.

  • Fieldwire is a construction planning app used by thousands of companies that makes planning easy for foremen, project managers and superintendents. The organizational app allows project leaders to look at the most up-to-date set of plans and share information from job photos to daily punch lists.

  • iHandy Carpenter offers five tools in one including leveling, measuring and more.

My experience with US Builders Review was positive from start to finish. The staff conducted each interaction with the utmost professionalism, whether over the phone or by email. Beginning with the initial telephone interview US Builders Review carefully gathered information to form a draft document then incorporated my minimal edits required to achieve factual accuracy in the finished article. US Builders Review is a pleasure to work with.

What a great team US Builders has put in place! Having worked with Victor Martins a few years back, I was pleasantly surprised that he remembered our experience and contacted us again about an updated article. Not only did Victor brainstorm with me about content that would resonate with readers, but he assigned an excellent writer, Molly Shaw, to our account. Her interview with my client, Bardi Heating Cooling & Plumbing, was professional and succinct; as was her writing style. We had very few edits and were pleased not only with the article, but how well it was enhanced by color photos. Much appreciated!

I was contacted as a nominee for the Greenbuild Editor’s Choice 2016 recognition and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Working with US Builders Review has been a blessing for my company. Erica Berry took an awesome interview in the initial call as she gathered data for the article. She was concerned about how we became us, and she made me feel important by listening and taking notes. Then there is Ian Nichols who made me feel so comfortable in sharing my story, and Molly Shaw who interviewed me as well, as she was getting ready to create an awesome article about my company -- and I must say she nailed it on the first run! What a pleasure it has been to work with everyone. This feature on Container Homes USA will help me push the company into the forefront at the Greenbuild Expo 2016.
