10 impactful techniques on how your field teams
can adopt construction software.
Kickstarting on a digital path can be quite
overwhelming for AEC firms. Continuous efforts,
bold steps, and good resource management are what
it takes to convince stakeholders to take the
digital route. Both, back office and field teams
can be resistant to change based on a myriad of
reasons viz. lack of technology trust, high cost,
complex integration, etc. This is where firms
like iFieldSmart Technologies play a vital role
in transforming the AEC sector by fueling
greater digital adoption.
The good news is, its not too late for your AEC
firm to embrace a data-driven approach based on
complete construction automation. This includes
construction management, cloud storage, and
virtual collaboration. Through comprehensive
automation, construction firms can influence
greater project control, better workflows,
enhanced productivity, fewer delays, and reduced
rework. In this article, we look at ten impactful
techniques on how field teams can adopt
construction management software.
Onsite construction covers a myriad of
activities, and working on a construction project
is never easy. A vast number of stakeholders and
project teams need to store, access, and share
data on-the-go. It is also vital for backoffice
and on-site teams to collaborate on a perpetual
basis. Build a strong focus on project
standardization. Standardizing processes and
systems should always be considered as a top
priority. Even before selecting a digital
solution for your project, your teams on-site
must be well trained and ready to do their job
based on specifications and standards. Defining
a workflow makes it easier for you and the field
teams to understand the value of new tools like
construction management software, cloud storage,
and virtual meetings. It is crucial to deploy
standardized processes that can be duplicated. Th
ese standardized processes can be improved based
on regular feedback by on-site teams. Top
construction management software integrated with
cloud storage and collaboration tools reduce
construction delays. Leveraging digitization and
automation from iFieldSmart Technologies helps
embrace a data-driven and transparent way of
Create a robust digital approach Once a project
has been streamlined, and various project phases
have been defined, it is time to work on a robust
digital approach. The most crucial step is
providing field teams with information on new
cloud-based construction digital tools, and how
the software will help them work faster and
quicker. Explaining the long-term value of
implementing software in your project means less
time spent on-site and more time for other
efficient project activities. This helps people
adopt new ways of work and save effort and
time. Onsite construction software from
iFieldSmart Technologies bridges the gap between
the back-office and on-site construction, and
personnel work smarter, better, and
effectively. Learn quickly with smaller
steps When working on a new digital roll-out,
it's important to begin using small steps.
Giving members time to get acclimated with
construction software helps reduce the risks of
costly mistakes. After the first roll-out,
project stakeholders can analyze how processes
can be optimized for the next stage and proceed
more effectively.
Get your software fundamentals correct Before
exploring the advanced features and functions of
the software, it is an excellent idea to get the
basics right. Gradual exploration of the software
gives teams on-site the necessary time to be
comfortable using construction software to add
value. By avoiding to put much pressure on
on-site personnel, it allows them to test the
software on their own. Encourage group
collaboration There are various types of
construction software, yet there is one thing
that needs to be present i.e. collaboration or
interaction. Allowing field teams to exchange
documents, updates, and tasks in real-time help
project teams engage more and use more advanced
Set a training schedule for your project
teams Training is a vital part of the onboarding
process, and it is one of the most important
parameters for your construction software. A
detailed training plan concerning teams on-site
and off-site helps teams become more productive
and efficient. Assign key tasks and
responsibilities for every team Narrow down the
tasks and responsibilities of each field team
member. To avoid chaos, teams need to leverage
solid guidance on how they need to use the
software, and how frequently. By outlining key
tasks and responsibilities field personnel is
more comfortable with the work routine, and
leverage the value of this digital shift much
faster. Communicate with your field teams on a
perpetual basis When all your systems are up and
running, it is important to collaborate with your
field teams to make sure offsite personnel use
new software without problems. Offsite and onsite
collaboration regularly helps garner feedback on
how the use of the construction tool can be
improved. Examining the level of engagement with
your team helps answer key questions viz. Is the
app used frequently and according to roles and
responsibilities? This site analysis helps
stakeholders leverage on-site data to improve the
complete experience.
Build deep data analysis Data is the most
important ally. Analyzing this source of truth
helps leverage an accurate overview of the
construction software. It also shows how well the
software has been adopted in the organization
and used by on-site teams. Measuring the level of
engagement, and analyzing its impact on-site
enhances productivity, reduces rework, and boosts
productivity. Adopt game-changing processes and
systems The importance of standardization has
already been mentioned. For on-site personnel to
drive better productivity and efficiency, the
processes need to be repeated. Moving from
project to project, even other members on the
field team can experience these processes. This
will help adjust quicker and better with these
new tools. Learning by design and repetition
helps on-site personnel become digitally enhanced
Conclusion Implementing new digital software
solutions to your project in construction can be
overwhelming. Its not easy to keep people in the
office and on-site on the same page. With
iFieldSmart Technologies, we understand the true
importance of establishing a strong foundation
for holistic digital transformation. Thats why
the adoption of a digital tool at an early stage
is highly recommended. If you want to read more

cloud-based automation overwhelming for your
project? Do you have tips on how on-site teams
can adopt construction management software?
