Where technology is transforming countless sectors from banking to transportation, the construction and engineering sectors are well-known as being one of the world’s least digitised sectors. The difficulties are understandable since typical construction projects involve numerous independent subcontractors and suppliers, with little incentive to embrace new methods. Projects also vary greatly, so it is often difficult to make them repeatable and the remote nature of some construction projects result in many firms failing to invest in technology.
However, we are seeing a change in these sectors and more willingness to invest in digital transformation.
We build transformational digital solutions for the Construction, Property and Engineering sectors. We confidently make this claim working with Mace, Laing O’Rourke, Osborne, The Crown Estate, Sisk and more.
One of the industry’s most pressing challenge is fragmented communication and workforces. Atlas is a must-have platform to improve internal communication. Atlas helps employees find and consume vital information needed on projects and especially works well for diverse workforces and varying IT competencies. Atlas helps you deliver relevant information to employees when they need it.
Complicated technical processes and the skilled labour shortage means that practical technology solutions are making headway with changing how construction businesses operate. We have worked closely with our construction clients to provide an all-in-one robust platform for easier access to the relevant project documentation in order to manage project operation. Teams can work together on documents, share knowledge, ensure critical procedures are leant and adhered to. Atlas ensures best working practice.
Collaboration is the glue that bonds an organisation and is even more critical when it comes to this sector who work across multiple organisations in the fragmented value chain. Atlas overcomes these problems by integrating key Office 365 collaboration tools as well as helps collaborators to know what to use when, with our well-designed user experience, add-ons and education - Atlas provides simplicity.
Laing O'Rourke is the largest privately-owned construction company in the UK. LOR employs nearly 13,000 staff globally in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, The Middle East, Hong Kong, and South East Asia.
The Crown Estate in the UK required a new data management system to share masses of data. With Windows Azure, ClearPeople helped The Crown Estate deploy the scalable cloud-based solution with zero infrastructure required.
