See the Future of Automated Progress Tracking

ON DEMAND UNTIL MARCH 23, 2022

Duration:60 minutes

Abstract:

Today, many GCs are still doing manual progress tracking, which is time-consuming and unreliable. Even those who use software for progress tracking are still spending a lot of time on it and getting poor results. That’s why automated progress tracking is the future of construction. With new AI technology based on 360° photo capture, teams can now see how much work gets done every day, on each floor, across a variety of trades. Suddenly, scheduling and verifying pay apps becomes a simple, reliable process.

With automated progress tracking, your teams can see the percent complete for all trades, including:

  • Framing
  • Drywall installation
  • Electrical
  • And more!
