Mobility Applications for Construction Sites

Construction companies have learned the value of barcode or RFID technology to track and manage their equipment, vehicles, tools and consumable materials at a busy building site. RMS Omega can work with you to design and install a mobility solution that will let you know the location, condition and user of equipment and the location and inventory level of your construction materials. You will have better control over your assets, increasing your efficiency and profitability.

You can track anything that can be tagged. You make the decision about the information you want to capture on the barcode such as serial number, manufacturer, purchase date and price. Scan barcode or RFID label data and store it in a central database. On a large construction site, you might want to put RFID tags on employee and visitor ID badges.

Equip your supervisors with smartphones, pocket sized computers or tablets. Our specialists can recommend industrial strength mobile devices that are rugged and built to work in dirty environments and extreme temperatures. These devices support software that automatically captures the RFID or barcode data and stores it.

If you operate several construction sites at the same time, the information can all be integrated into one database. This makes it easy for you and your supervisors to move around and still use their mobile devices to input data and access real time info in order to:

  • Monitor ongoing operations

Make informed decisions such as moving equipment from one site to another, redeploying workers or ordering material. You can evaluate the efficiency of your workflow and adjust if necessary; e.g. to accommodate a late delivery.

  • Manage the inventory

Use your smartphone or mobile computer to search the database for the exact location of a certain piece of equipment or truckload of supplies and generate an order to move it elsewhere. You can decide on the reports you need in order to manage your equipment inventory; for example, the costs and utilization of equipment, including maintenance and lease agreements. Plan maintenance schedules to coincide with equipment downtime in project timeline. Track lifecycles and calculate depreciation.

  • Manage personnel

With RFID tags on their badges, you can monitor the location of your workers and match it to the equipment and supplies they are using. Such real time information allows you to manage employee performance either individually or as shift work team. An RFID tag on a visitor badge can send an alert to your mobile device if anyone strays beyond a designated area.

Tracking and managing inventory on a construction site is so simple with RFID technology on a mobile device. Our team will review your operations, discuss the pros and cons of various barcode and RFID mobile solutions and install and train on the products you choose.
