Heavy Construction Firm Rolls out Mobile Apps

Heavy civil construction is a type of construction that, essentially, is the adding of infrastructure to an already built environment. Instead of privately owned properties, these types of construction projects usually deal with public properties. The owners of these projects are typically local or national government agencies and are usually done to benefit the public. The most common type of heavy construction is highway and road construction. However, heavy civil construction also includes irrigation projects, grading and/or surfacing of air fields, hydro-electric and water diversion tunnels, industrial site preparation and excavation.

This GoCanvas featured subscriber is one such company. Projects of this magnitude require detailed management and tight data processes throughout the entire project.  Canvas is currently being utilized on jobsites to track equipment and hours used, collect information on workers time and hours dedicated to specific tasks as well as the performing of safety inspections in the field. GoCanvas allows this subscriber the unique ability to roll out the same mobile app on on iPhones, iPads, as well as Android Tablets without the complexity of rewriting their solution. Data is being collected throughout the day and sent back wirelessly to the GoCanvas cloud, then exported to the client’s back-end system for reconciliation and reporting. Another fine example of how companies across various industries are going paperless, saving money and gathering critical information in real-time leveraging their Smartphones and Tablet devices with GoCanvas!
