Most of us today are on our phones through the day, from using an app to order groceries, a reminder app for our smallest daily tasks, to the gamut of social media apps. However, when it comes to a construction project why are we still recording snags on paper and physically consolidating checklists to generate reports?
Each person today consumes an average of 2 pieces of paper every hour, while in return the world consumes 10 litres of water to produce a single A4-sheet. Let that sink in.
Also, paper-based processes typically cost a project site Rs 2 lakhs and the site team is then expected to maintain these records. No one really knows the cost of storing such voluminous records for an uncertain duration!
Our team at GEM has successfully developed apps to digitize the construction industry for pre and during construction activities to help reduce paper consumption. Through this, we learnt that implementing digital solutions not only enhances productivity and reduces costs but also increases efficiency. This is how Snagmann was born!
Snagmann– is a post construction activity tracking and management app that is created to simplify the snagging process while facilitating a collaborative environment between all stakeholders. It helps teams stay on budget by saving time and effort usually lost by inefficient coordination via paper based processes. With the use of this app, users can do without carrying papers, checklists, print outs and cameras to the site. All your documents are now saved to the cloud server and any information you need is now at your fingertips! By being in tune with all aspects of the project, improvement will now be a continuous process.
Here is a quick overview of what the app does:
In the construction industry, digitization is no longer a luxury but an absolute necessity. Investing in technology for your team increases your business profitability and benefits your clients as well!
