Industry Spotlight: Actsoft Solutions in Construction

Actsoft solutions help to power forward the construction industry by bringing dispersed workforces together. Three of the most important things for effective building strategies are consistently meeting deadlines, ensuring that worker safety remains accounted for, and protecting assets around the clock. All of these critical objectives can be attained using the capabilities of our software.

Stay right on schedule

Once a building project has been planned and announced, the clock is immediately ticking on its completion. One of the best ways for contractors to establish a sterling reputation with their customers is to consistently deliver on project timelines, and features of our solutions like Wireless Forms and Mobile Timekeeping make it easy to do. By allowing workers to complete more of their daily tasks while away from the home office, these tools help companies save time and money effectively.

Enhance work site safety

Construction work often times requires heavy machinery, which can carry a certain degree of danger. Actsoft’s GPS Tracking tool makes the pinpointed locations of employees readily available to see, so companies know exactly where their staff are in case of a critical situation. Dispatching is another powerful feature of our software that can help to keep employees safe, as it enables construction businesses to send out requests for assistance nearly instantly via wireless notifications, whenever an emergency might occur.

Keep important equipment secure

Heavy machinery like bulldozers, cranes, and crawler excavators can cost thousands of dollars to replace if lost. Thankfully, contracting companies can use Actsoft’s Asset Tracking technology to be constantly in-the-know about where their important construction equipment is. The ability to leave machinery dispersed in the field overnight gives businesses an immense amount of extra potential for savings, and with custom alerts for unauthorized movements, contracting businesses can rest assured that their assets are monitored around the clock.

Geofences and City Construction

Constructing the megalopolises of today requires some of the most cutting-edge technology available. In a time where space in downtown areas is limited and building strategies have been trending upward rather than outward, the importance of modern tools to contractors can’t be understated.

These state-of-the-art tools come in many different forms, including both digital and mechanical ones. Workforces that are tasked with the responsibility of putting together an entire city’s infrastructure from the ground up need everything from heavy machinery to workforce management solutions continuously at their disposal, in order to complete projects in timely fashion.

On the workforce management side, Actsoft can help construction companies pinpoint the locations of their assets, fleet vehicles, and mobile workers in crowded urban environments. Features of our digital solutions such as Geofences allow for the establishment of up to 30 customized points around remote work zones, clearly defining the perimeters of job sites via GPS.

Using the power of Geofences, contracting workforces can further optimize their productivity levels, and provide near real-time information on what’s truly happening in the field back to their headquartered administrators. Once geofence boundaries have been set, businesses are able to use them in conjunction with other Actsoft features such as Alerts and Asset Tracking.

Companies dealing predominantly in high-rise and downtown construction in particular significantly benefit from our asset monitoring systems, because they’re versatile. Any time a piece of equipment enters or exits a geofence’s set boundaries, Alerts will automatically notify designated individuals within their organizations. And, as the shapes of geofences are highly customizable, any obstacles to plotting accurate site boundaries are out of sight and out of mind. Irregularly-shaped geofences in space-deficient city construction can be precisely drawn to contain everything that a business needs, and nothing it doesn’t.

Allow Actsoft to help your construction company improve the security of its valuable equipment, and ensure that your team is where it needs to be during routine workdays. With our solutions’ Geofences feature, explore all of the benefits that modern GPS technology is readily offering to your workforce.

Modern Architecture and Networking in the 21st Century

Modern architecture is something that has grown increasingly complex in recent decades. Today, seemingly impossible feats of both engineering and construction alike are becoming possible, after recent developments stemming from years of ambitious design. Some of the most cutting-edge creative minds across the globe are continually finding ways to expand the boundaries of what simple building materials like concrete, glass, and iron can do, paving the way to newer, more advanced horizons.

In order to pull off some of the ridiculous engineering associated with such modern marvels as the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, multiple groups of teams on an international scale had to collaborate seamlessly with one another. Suppliers of construction materials, the architects themselves, and scores of dedicated builders all had to come together, applying their specialized skills to achieve a common end goal.

These intrapersonal communications, where ideas are shared and vital information is exchanged typically formulate the beginning of a massive construction project. Logistics such as funding, location, and designs all must be proposed and approved by each respective party that has signed on to do the project. This is what effective networking looks like, albeit in one of its most complex forms.

Networking is a central theme in many different architectural projects. Skyscraper construction in particular is usually conducted with the intent of creating glitzy high-rise hotels or office spaces, both of which are building types that are frequently used as hubs to facilitate professional networking between individuals. During the groundbreaking phase of a project, and even years later when the complex is being used by multiple groups of people in daily operations, the constant process of creating and maintaining any property is often continually churned through the ideas exchanged via networking.

Actsoft solutions can help individuals in both construction and professional networking increase their overall efficiency. By equipping professionals and businesses with all the requisite tools needed to communicate, we’re there to help you attain and sustain efficient levels of productivity. Mobile timekeeping and wireless forms are just two of the many powerful features that our products offer to networkers and construction companies, as they’re able to significantly reduce any barriers that could impede on smooth connectivity between individuals.

Streamlined workflow is one of the best ways to enhance coordination and idea-sharing between members of your business team, and with Actsoft, it’s possible to do. Let’s see what we can do for your organization’s networking bandwidth today.
