How tablets will improve construction efficiency
March 14, 2012
For years, construction software and technology has been employed in subtle ways to improve efficiency. For example, nowadays many architects will design digital plans that can be easily passed in between clients and the construction companies that make the actual building.
According to TechCrunch, the use of tablets will further streamline processes. While some may see tablets as being a mere evolution from laptops, the difference is akin to a tool that almost works and one that actually fulfills its purpose. Moreover, with innovative new devices such as the third-generation iPad, tablets will be able to perform even more functions.
"It's basically the first computer that is truly usable in the field and as a result they are already starting to be rapidly adopted by construction companies. The third-generation iPad and the improving Android tablets are only going to accelerate things," the news source adds.
Some electronics companies have already begun making rugged tablet devices that are more suited for the rough-and-tumble nature of construction sites.
