With the advent of IOT, the construction industry – be it contractors, subcontractors or equipment rental companies – can use data to increase project efficiency. The industry can leverage sensor-based data to identify patterns and trends which facilitate creation of safer job sites, help to cut costs and enable large-scale projects to be delivered on time and within budget.

That’s where IndustryCoreTM – an enterprise Platform-of-Everything – steps in. It enables the construction industry to keep a tab on their tools, track equipment performance, and facilitate staff safety and communication. This enables companies to finish projects faster and within budget, thus growing their margins and making them more competitive.

benefits Construction administrators in the following ways

  • Connects and collaborates with the world’s leading automation vendors seamlessly to ensure real-time visibility into the status of construction operations from a single pane of glass.
  • Connects with multiple communications technologies like 3G,4G,LTE, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, RFID and Bluetooth to achieve business and operational outcomes with ease.

  • Offers custom-made wearables coupled with the IndustryCore platform. Wearables include custom tags and wristbands using Wi-Fi, BLE, 3G/4G, as well as satellite technologies.
  • Provides a smart helmet which tracks real-time worker fatigue data to ensure workers are fit to perform their roles and are not under excess fatigue.
  • By integrating RTLS into staff/visitor badges, companies can notify anyone venturing into a restricted area via SMS, so they can keep away from that part of the construction site.

  • Supports tools, people, vehicles in indoor, outdoor as well as remote areas using RFID, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G/4G, as well as satellite technologies. IndustryCore facilitates tracking of the location, status, workflow, condition of assets, equipment, materials, tools and human resources needed to ensure that the project is on track.
  • Ensures that none of the devices/assets that are under maintenance enter the job site.
  • Reduces possibilities of theft at construction sites by tracking any movement of equipment after hours.

  • Assists in automating the management of adequate stock levels for critical spares and material. It warns the client when certain threshold levels are reached and automates the ordering process to prevent problems resulting for low or zero stocks.

  • Helps construction companies in pre-empting the need for frequent and expensive machine repairs by ensuring predictive maintenance through condition monitoring. It’s able to capture the deterioration rate for the construction equipment and avoid downtime.
  • Collects historical vibration data through monitoring sensors and establishes a motion fingerprint of each motor/piece of equipment on construction sites. It studies the motion in all 3-axis – x, y and z. Over time, these motion fingerprints are collected and posted. When the actual motion of a motor differs from its fingerprint, alerts are created.
  • Studies motion, temperature and humidity through its LoRa-based solution to provide comprehensive visibility on materials at the construction site which need to stay within a certain temperature or humidity range.

  • Enables construction companies to make the safety process for site workers very user friendly and engaging.
  • Brings the site operator and workers together on a common platform where conversations are properly organised and accessible with a searchable archive.
