A major provider of construction safety software in Finland has just expanded to offer its mobile app in the UK
Spotted: Helsinki-based Congrid, a maker of construction quality and safety software, has just announced its expansion into the UK.
Congrid’s cloud-based mobile app allows project and quality managers at construction companies to monitor the progress of work in real-time. The platform is designed to reduce the industry’s reliance on manual, paper-based workflows.
Construction projects involve a large amount of documentation and inspections. Preparing these materials can be very time-consuming. Congrid aims to cut back on this by allowing managers to carry all necessary files and document templates with them at all times via the mobile app. Managers can make an inspection at the construction site, the software will then draft, save and distribute the report.
The app also allows the monitoring of work progress, including defect and fault corrections, in real-time. Congrid’s app works on smartphones or tablets, allowing managers to have all the information they need at their fingertips, instead of back at the office in a giant file cabinet.
According to Congrid’s CEO, Timo Makkonen, the companies’ software, “enables all stakeholders involved to participate and take responsibility for quality and safety,”.
Congrid is also competing in the London Construction Awards, where they have been nominated in the Construction Software of the Year Award category.
