Implementing new technology into construction is a smart decision, but it’s a process. The technology must present tangible value from Day 1, and it has to make sense for the job site. It must work as well in the field as it did at the tradeshow. Smart contractors choose products or platforms with the worker in mind.
Peter Maglathlin, CFO of Trade Hounds, an app and social network that connects U.S. construction workers, said “a product or platform that is geared toward the worker, not management, will be most widely adopted and engaged with, and therefore have the most impact.”
