Understanding Challenges in Construction Management today

Do you know what the persistent pain points of convention construction are? Let us give you a brief overview. Safety issues, sustainability issues, errors in construction, low productivity, tracking inefficiency leading to large losses, labour shortage, equipment control issues and so much more. A construction business can only thrive when it has a streamlined process of growth.

This is where Skystruct construction software comes into play. Our software plays a pivotal role in digitally transforming your business, while being user-friendly and cost-effective, so as to simplify your life and business.

All of us who have used a Swiss knife at one point in time would know how it offers comprehensive solutions to most of our problems. Skystruct ERP is meant to do just that and more. It is versatile, in the sense that, it helps to plan your resources, boosts productivity, saves time and controls overhead costs. When you implement this software in your real construction business, you make your own and everyone else’s job much easier, while also having an upper hand in the process.

So what are the challenges that traditional modes of construction face even today?

Delays in construction:

Did you know that nearly 98% of construction projects never meet their promised timelines? Construction delays are caused by a number of factors that are not in our control. Skystruct construction software can help with everything that involves human resources, finances, project and inventory management etc. The right kind of investment makes all the difference.

Unforeseen Costs:

Each and every stage of construction is about additional expenses that are not only difficult to estimate but also add to the miscellaneous expenses later. One of the most significant problems that our technology can solve is the cost of a project that often goes beyond control.

Traditional construction methods have a tendency to fix things on the field that leads to inaccurate cost calculation. With our construction software, it will be possible to get the first version of a building tested and analyzed over and over again without adding to the cost. Each rendering will be better than the previous one and it will lead to a highly improved and efficient project.

Inaccurate budget and reports:

Yet another pressing issue that construction business owners often face is estimating the exact budget of a project beforehand. Often, a lot of expenses are not considered that leads to strained relationships with clients.

This is where Skystruct can help your company to form an accurate budget with its work-breakdown-structure, retrieval of all data related to a project, thorough analysis and presentation of exact reports. In these reports, we will also include an assessment of the profits and the losses so that your company can take right steps towards more profitable outcomes.

Ineffective communication:

Proper communication between each and every individual involved in a construction project is a crucial aspect and also one of the biggest challenges. In most conventional forms of construction, data loss happens as a result of a communication gap between all the parties involved in the process.

Skystruct ERP software strives to bridge this gap with the help of BIM technology. Changes in timings, schedules, material availability etc. need real-time coordination that our technology can offer effortlessly to all the stakeholders. We provide virtual walk-throughs that will make it easier for your company to obtain important feedback from stakeholders.

Overexertion of labourers:

Yet another pressing problem that conventional construction companies face is the rising number of injuries due to overexertion. This overexertion is not only painful for the laborers undergoing it but also for the industry as it leads to labor shortage, inefficiency and a significant impact on an aging employee’s health.

At Skystruct, we employ exoskeletons that make processes significantly safer for construction workers. The skeleton makes it easier to lift heavy machines easily. It also helps to hold heavy machines for longer durations without impacting the skeletal and muscular systems of workers.

Human Errors:

Completely automated systems are no longer a distant reality. They are gradually becoming an integral part of construction processes all across the globe. The primary and most important aspect of automation in construction is the fact that human errors and inconsistencies are eliminated. The entirely automated process is faster, more efficient and of higher quality.

Sustainability issues:

Did you know that by 2025, the volume of construction waste might reach 2.2 billion tons? This is why digitizing the construction process has become the priority of construction companies. Companies having green initiatives will always have a competitive edge. Buildings integrated with IoT systems can minimize carbon emissions and always function with optimal energy. Our technology serves this purpose of sustainability at every step.

Concluding Thoughts:

Digital transformation opens up new avenues for construction companies by not only being responsible towards the planet but also by offering safer and more productive working conditions to their employees. The profit margins will be higher, the costs will be lower and time will be saved. Skystruct upholds all these 3 important principles of profit, cost and time by offering the most updated digital transformations to companies that believe in the future.
