Service for monitoring employees at construction sites

Native mobile development for iOS and Android. Administrative Panel

An application for automating employee monitoring processes at construction sites. The software simplifies communication and removes the burden from the paper workflow, and also clearly shows the labor costs of workers.

Builders attach up-to-date photos from objects inside the application - this allows the management team to monitor the progress of work and make changes to the project on time.

You can "touch" the application right now with the help of a clickable prototype here.

Project duration: 9 months.

Customer’s request

We were contacted by a construction company that had a request to automate routine processes. It was necessary to create a product that would take on the following:

  • setting tasks for the team, and employees;
  • control over the execution of work sections by the foreman and seniour foreman;
  • reporting for foremen and seniour foremen on the work performed for the day, week, month, and the entire period;
  • reconciliation with planned works at the construction site.

All the functionality had to be implemented in a mobile application to quickly enter information and check statuses. They immediately decided to abandon the desktop version: most employees work at facilities, not in offices, and do not have access to a laptop or computer.

What was done

We have created a system in which you can run several different projects. In each of the projects, tasks, the status are displayed, and photos of the sites that employees make at the facility are also attached.

In the application, you can set and decompose tasks, invite other specialists to the project, mark the status: ready / not ready / in the process, add supporting photos. The product also builds statistics on the status of tasks, this helps specialists to see what state the project is in.

There are 4 roles in the project in total: Administrator, Foreman, Seniour Foreman, and Employee.

Administrator

Monitors the construction of facilities in a remote format and is engaged in the development of the company. He overviews the reports on completed works and compares the results with the planned value. He sets tasks for foremen and monitors reporting. Configures the access of other participants to projects. Any person in the company holding a managerial position can be an Administrator.

Foreman

Manages construction teams and facilities conducts the construction process and controls deadlines and budget. Guided by the plan, he gives instructions to the workers. The application keeps records of expenses, receipts, and payments. Foreman fixes additional hours of work so that the employee correctly accrued wages.

Seniour Foreman

Seniour Foreman manages objects and builders, ensures that workers attach relevant photos to tasks on time, and keeps in touch with the team and the foreman, requesting the necessary materials for work.

Employee

An employee has access to all his tasks, records the time of work, and attaches a photo or video of the result. For each object, the employee posts a photo report, comments, and photos of entries in the work log from his phone.


The photo report function makes it possible to monitor the quality and stages of construction daily, this allows you to quickly respond to deviations and make adjustments to the work.

Problems

As we have already said, the optimal solution as a software product was a mobile application. However, there were difficulties here too: it was important that the software worked correctly on all devices, but not all employees had sufficiently powerful phones.

Therefore, every decision on the project was made carefully and with an eye to optimization. In order for the software product to work quickly, we have optimized absolutely all application methods.

Project result

The application is currently in the process of publication and will soon appear in the AppStore and Google Play stores.

After the application becomes available for download, the customer will be able to fully manage the construction process at each stage.
