Technology makes construction sites safer and more efficient than they ever were before. Instead of having to leave the job site and track down a payphone each time you have a question or need emergency medical help, you can pull out your cell phone and instantly place a call. Instead of having to sort through piles of paperwork to find a specific document, now all important files can be stored digitally on a computer. Smartphones and laptops were the next big game changer in the construction management field. There are multiple web-based applications accessible that help make the work day considerably easier for construction general contractors and subcontractors alike.
Here are just three of the top web-based applications for construction general contractors:
GoBIM is an excellent app that is designed to help general contractors and subcontractors have constant access to 3D BIM models and corresponding data. The information provided by the GoBIM application for construction general contractors allows you to determine market value and to calculate product data. The app is designed to work on multiple platforms and the information can be shared with others who are involved in your construction projects.
When it comes to concrete, you can’t afford to not have the Truckast application. Truckast makes everything about using concrete on the worksite easier. Truckast allows you to place your order, confirm delivery times, and check up on past concrete orders, which help you estimate the concrete needs/cost of different jobs. The app works on multiple platforms.
PlanHub is a cloud-based software that no construction general contractor can afford to be without. PlanHub allows you to use the highly reliable cloud-based application to save every little detail of each construction project you’re managing. The files are easy to share with subcontractors, clients, foremen, and suppliers.
In addition to providing easy access to a cloud based application that makes it easy to store and share details about different construction projects, PlanHub is also an application that enables you to request, compare, and accept bids from multiple subcontractors.
