With the progress on many plots to manage simultaneously, keeping an up-todate picture of that progress from across a large site was previously a huge headache.
Now, the company is using Site Progress Mobile to input real-time updates into Powerproject.
“The Site Progress Mobile app is really a gamechanger. It has made a huge difference because it has allowed us to be up to date much more frequently and anticipate issues before they happen.”
He also talked of the time benefit that the team has experienced: “It used to take a lot of time to put progress into a reviewable, analysable format; it would be taken from paper agendas, then someone would type it into a spreadsheet, then the guy in charge of the project area would have to figure it out and analyse it. It was hard to narrow in on where the issues and delays were, or where things were stumbling over each other. If there was ever a mistake, or anything didn’t make sense, it was a nightmare to find out where the error had happened.”
Praise for Site Progress Mobile has been broad among the team members tasked with checking and inspecting work progress, to which three of these gave their impressions:
♦ “Now I can complement my work progress with pictures and comments of any event that can influence the work immediately with the Site Progress Mobile app and it is registered directly in Powerproject.” Angelica Ortega – BGA Construction Inspector
♦ “Before Site Progress Mobile, I had to go up to the main office to fill out an Excel sheet every Friday and part of Saturday to record progress and now I do it directly from my cell phone on the job site and in a matter of minutes.” Pablo Campbell – BGA Construction Inspector
♦ “Site Progress Mobile saves us a lot of time in feeding progress information in to the plan. We can generate information for reports for superiors in a matter of minutes now, rather than several days.” Ruben Herrera – BGA Project Supervisor.
