Codegate will be demonstrating how its mobileworker software enables civil engineers, contractors, project managers and consultants to monitor, measure and manage remote workers, vehicles, materials and tools on construction sites of all sizes, at next week's Infrastructure Show.
"The ability for construction professionals to monitor, measure and manage exactly what's happening on a construction site provides them with the best possible chance of achieving on time, within budget project completion," explained Terran Churcher, Chairman of Codegate.
Codegate's mobileworker software, running on mobile computers, delivers accurate information which can be disseminated to and gathered from construction sites, right to the fingertips of construction professionals. This information provides construction professionals with a software tool which enables them to provide indisputable evidence that they, and their construction team, have followed the correct procedures and completed tasks to meet the agreed deadlines or service level agreements (SLAs).
"I recognised that from a construction and civil engineering perspective there is a huge demand for the flow of accurate data, covering every aspect of construction from materials' logistics to works scheduling and job management, to and from construction professionals and the construction sites they are managing," added Churcher.
"Once you have the full visibility of what tasks or actions have been completed, are about to be completed, are delayed, etc., it is possible to monitor and measure the performance of your construction teams and put effective management and contingent strategies in place to ensure the project continues to run as effectively and productively as possible," continued Churcher.
Codegate's mobileworker software facilitates the distribution of all kinds of works information and transmits the resulting data captured from all areas of a construction site to the relevant back office systems, whatever those systems may be.
The expertise of Codegate's software development teams and its long standing systems integration experience means that the visibility of this data is easily and readily made available to construction professionals with little or no input from their own IT resource.
Codegate's extensive experience within the mobile computing, track and trace sector has enabled it to build up an extensive portfolio of mobileworker software applications. All of which can be tailored to exactly meet the specific requirements of individual construction sites and help construction professionals remain in control of their projects.
mobileworker's features and functionality include the ability to:
- Monitor and check on the status of building work ensuring that specifications are being met
- Assist with quality control via digital images as to the progress of individual works
- Track and trace plant equipment and tools as they move around a construction site
- Monitor delivery vehicles as they arrive on site and ensure their loads are delivered to the correct area
- Ensure that spoil is removed and disposed of correctly
- Help with compliance of health and safety regulations by tracking who is on site and their location
- Tracking of any accidents or incidents which may occur on site
"Codegate has spent the last sixteen years developing and honing its mobile applications to provide information hungry project managers with accurate, up to the minute site data. Construction professionals can now use this data to constantly monitor, measure and manage all aspects of works to be carried out. Importantly they can share this data with their clients, delivering complete visibility of the build. This transparency provides a key value-add that helps to foster client loyalty by demonstrating work has been done to specification and on time. It also enables construction professionals to successfully manage the build and complete on time and within budget - impossible for cut price competitors to achieve!" concluded Churcher.
