How to Keep Construction Project Data Flowing and Business Moving Forward

Connect, Share & Collaborate

The construction industry is one of Canada’s largest employers, and it makes up 7% of the country’s GDP. From building the roofs over our heads to developing commercial, industrial and healthcare infrastructure, the work you do is essential to the running of our daily lives.

The global pandemic has brought disruption to companies, communities and families, but as an “essential” industry, construction projects are continuing. With the challenges brought on by shelter in place and social distancing directives, now more than ever before, companies like yours need to be able to connect, share data and collaborate remotely to keep projects moving forward.

  1. Communicate Visually

  2. Remotely Monitor and Communicate Progress
    Follow and communicate project progress and monitor activities every step of the way, no matter where you are.
  3. Stay Updated from Anywhere
    Set notifications that can be configured to update you by activity type, team member, project phase or even opt to receive a summary digest at day’s end.
  4. Remember to Set Versioning and Security Protocols
    Especially when collaborating remotely, multiple team members will be working on a variety of files at the same time. Set versioning to identify which files are being used, and implement security settings to ensure the right people have access to the right data.
  5. Keep Project Files Synced
    Ensure all data and file updates are synced with a tool that automatically manages and configures files for bidirectional synchronization.
