As computing power increases exponentially and the size of hardware devices reduce there has never been a better time for the construction industry to embrace mobile technology. Having that single source of truth at your finger-tips. But it’s not just about video conferencing or access to all your documents via mobile devices, mobile digital covers a huge market of products and opportunities. Come and join us at thinkBIM as we lift the lid on this rapidly growing sector of the market.
Ben Jowett, BIM Manager, Wates Group
Digital Field Tools
Mobile Digital Technologies are increasingly recognised for their role in improving task management efficiency whilst enhancing collaboration and integration between project teams on construction sites. However, with a wide range of available solutions it can be difficult to determine the best tool for an organisation’s requirements. Ben will provide an overview of some of the tools and processes being practically applied by Wates on construction sites.
