Can you believe how fast 2021 went and how much we all squeezed in?
With the dust settling on last year, we caught our breath and chatted with our product team to reflect.
It was a year of adapting and innovating. We’re honored to work in an industry that held its head high in the face of new challenges to keep building great communities. Our entire HammerTech team worked arm in arm with our clients to gain greater Project IQ across safety, risk, and progress. We found new ways to serve safety, project management, finance, and risk teams with intelligent job site data.
New clients and partners joined the HammerTech community in Australia and New Zealand. We also continued our expansion into the US, Canadian, and European markets. To name a few, we welcomed CRB, Digital Realty, Barantas, KPRS Construction Services, LT McGuinness, Hansen Yunken, Prime Build, Gray Construction and many, many more.
Here is how we invested in the HammerTech platform to continue serving as a trusted partner to the construction industry and, at the end, you’ll get a sneak peek of plans for 2022!
We’d like to say a big thank you to our friends at Procore for joining forces to develop and launch an integration. The power of the two platforms helps clients simplify their tech stack and augments project management with intelligence directly from the jobsite. This helps clients speed up project start-up, save time, improve data accuracy and reduce risk.
The integration improves field and office connectivity with integrated labor hours, subcontractors, vendors, and employers of project information. It’s proving popular with so many of our mutual clients using the integration. The list grows every day.
We launched the Inspection app to deal with unreliable jobsite Wi-Fi and eliminate the frustration of switching between apps. Our Inspection App closed the gap in jobsite inspection data. The HammerTech Inspect App connects to the HammerTech Compliance, Risk, and Safety (CRS) platform and supports offline inspection. The HammerTech CRS Platform empowers field teams to raise and close issues from any location. This reduces issue close-out time and simplifies reporting. The improved transparency reduces risk and keeps projects on time.
A Fresh Interface
Time is precious for everyone in our industry and great design can help much more than just looking good! With the new interface, construction teams have improved navigation across all devices to take action faster. Everything you need is easy to find and only ever two clicks away from the in-system dashboards.
Jobsite Delivery Calendar
In the fall we made scheduling deliveries simple, collaborative with our Bookings solution. It helps you plan ahead and keep projects on schedule. Your trade partners have free access to the HammerTech CRS Control Tower and apply for bookings. Site teams review the trade partners' bookings and adjust the deliveries to prioritize critical works plans.
IOT and Access Control Integrations
Getting accurate labor hours per project by trade can be an immense challenge. Flexibility is now your friend with options to gather labor hours through HammerTech’s sign-in app or enhance it with new software and hardware integrations like turnstiles and IOT devices. When you exchange worker profile information, it reduces duplication and speeds-up worker onboarding.
Our end-points enable any access control provider to integrate with us giving you greater options. Check out our growing list of IOT, access control and, tech partners including Opal, CMiC, Irongate. For more information on becoming a partner with us, click here.
COVID-19 Vaccination & Testing Tracking
With new COVID-19 vaccinations and testing coupled with frequent changes to government and agency health guidelines, our clients turned to us for new tools to keep site teams safe.
Besides touchless site access and worker location tracking, workers uploaded their proof of vaccination or negative tests in HammerTech like they do with regular licenses. This makes it simple for supervisors and operations teams to track compliance rates and prevent jobsite access if it was needed. Proprietary PowerBI dashboards show testing, vaccination rates plus location tracking and contact tracing—reducing administration and reducing down-time.
So, what’s in Store for 2022?
Our team is ready to hit the ground running and prepared for a big year ahead!
Our vision for 2022 is to help every contractor realize the power of their Project IQ. We believe that quality jobsite data should be accessible to everyone—onsite and offsite and no matter your role. Helping your construction business improve compliance, risk control and, safety while increasing profit and productivity across every one of your projects.
Don’t tell the product team…but here’s a sneak peek of what’s coming! We have a brand-new Pre-Task Plan module and a jobsite TV App coming out soon. Other new enhancements include new executive reporting, progress tracking features, and much more.
