3rd Tuesday: Driving Efficiency + Attainability through Tech + Data
March 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm
The most effective businesses have a clear purpose, KPIs and access to technology that connects the right people to the right information at the right time. Tech + Data enable people to make better decisions faster, increase efficiency, and improve results for their business, their partners + their customers.
During our March 3rd Tuesday event, we hosted an open discussion on Driving Efficiency and Attainability through Tech + Data.
Find a short summary below:
Flashpoint Building Systems showed how tech and data can help gain greater efficiencies on the job site with their integrated layout system. The company laser engraves a combined set of architectural, mechanical, engineering and plumbing plans onto a subfloor for homebuilding. It becomes a map for the construction crew. Labor saves time by not having to cut pieces, not having to pull strings to measure, not having to interpret drawings. The immediate savings is at minimum a day’s worth of work for at least two people for every trade on the job. Because it’s an easy visual, it’s also helpful if language is a barrier. And because it’s intuitive, it can be empowering for labor who understand right away what needs to be done on site.
Stefan Martinovic from Placer.ai, showed how this data tool can help developers, builders and others along the real estate chain make better decisions by looking at foot traffic, mobility and heat maps. Where people shop. Where people vacation. Socio demographic indicators give insight into whether you should build two bedrooms or three, if people will need electric charging infrastructure. Using enriched data points like these can help save time and money and create efficiencies in the decision-making process.
While general contractors, designers and architects are ramping up technology and looking for solutions, the trades are often left in the dark. The demands put on the trades grows and yet they don’t have the same access to technology tools that could help them. There are opportunities to look outside of the industry to see how others have changed the way that that business is run. The industry needs to digitally connect the sales with operations and, have real-time tools for field teams to succeed.
