It is important for construction project stakeholders not to go mobile without the cloud. With construction projects turning complex, various mobile devices and platforms have revolutionized the construction sector. Cloud-based construction management software or applications are delivering significant productivity improvements for BIM-based projects. Construction apps that do not integrate a cloud-based framework can cause project complications and reduce efficiency. If you want to collaborate, work remotely, visit a job site through video conferencing, or even collaborate with your team, you’ll need a cloud-based platform and mobile device to boost productivity on job sites.
Based on a study by Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), 85% of the construction contractors plan-to-use or already use cloud-based software.
A complete understanding of the cloud enhances project processes, and stay ahead in the construction industry.
The difference between general mobile apps & cloud-based project management apps.
Although there is an overlay between general apps and cloud-based projects, there is a distinct difference between the two. As these are two different types of technology, they can be easily classified with the following explanation.
Mobile computing includes devices like smartphones, tablets, or laptops that users use to access the web.
Cloud computing or virtual storage holds files, applications, and project data that stakeholders can access from anywhere, anytime.
When choosing a suite of communication and collaboration apps for your cloud project, AEC companies and professionals can leverage the best of both the technologies.
iFBIM, iFCloud, and iFMeets is one cloud-based software super-suite that enables AEC companies and users the potential to leverage powerful project collaboration, video conferencing, and cloud storage –all under one roof.
