Construction Equipment & Jobsite Management App
Easily track inspections, maintenance records, & more on all of your equipment across multiple job sites
Construction is slowly migrating from a general trade to a technical profession. General contractors, electricians, plumbers, flooring/window installers, roofers, masons, operating engineers, laborers, painters, glazers, & ceiling installers are increasingly using technology to complete their work.
Technology is now embedded in all aspects of their operations including:
- Construction equipment inventory
- Equipment maintenance
- Project management
- Punch list and final walk-throughs
- Worker safety
Slate Pages is the best tool for tracking & managing construction equipment. Here’s how it works:
Tracking construction equipment inspections, maintenance, & inventory with Slate Pages
The Slate Pages app can help make your regular maintenance and inspections required by general trades for commercial, residential and industrial construction fast & easy.
As technology and construction intersect, more and more equipment is being used throughout the construction process. Physical labor was used to provide a majority of the work during construction 50 years ago. Today, instead of carrying 40 lb. bags of cement manually into a five-story building, contractors will install conveyor systems or elevators to reduce labor costs. The amount of production that is completed using these types of equipment and tools increases every day. What was once completed using labor is now being completed with tools and equipment driven by technology.
These material movers, along with most new equipment, require routine inspections and preventative maintenance. There is so much information to be tracked along with each asset including equipment inspections, maintenance, lifespan, location, availability, & more. Trying to manage this data on paper or a spreadsheet is nearly impossible. Slate Pages is the perfect solution to track, store, organize, and access this data all from your smartphone. A few examples of equipment that can be tracked using Slate Pages are:
- Aerial lifts
- Chop saws
- Demo hammers
- Floor grinders
- Floor polishers
- And more
Construction project management app
There are many moving parts in a construction project. You need materials, supplies, sub-contractors, etc. Providing your project manager with an app that can track & manage all of this information, and making the information accessible to all, is priceless. Site inspections & scheduling are a critical part of construction project management. Subcontractors can update their work area progress by simply scanning the site’s Slate QR tag at the end of each day. The customizable Slate Pages app offers required transparency for all and a historical progress tracker for the owner and their representatives. Want to know the status of a work area? Just scan the QR Code or access the slate directly in your account.
Managing punch lists & final walk-throughs
Project managers work daily to finish tasks. There are two stages of completed tasks: when the project manager thinks it’s done and when the owner or representative thinks it’s done. Project managers can now ditch their clipboards and hours of tracking email chains. When a work task or area is complete, the Slate is updated with its current stage, photos and comments. The final signoff can be completed in Slate Pages by all with comments posted. This information is available at the work area or on a web portal for all to view. Site inspections can now be conducted with ease with the customizable Slate Pages app.
Maintaining worker & jobsite safety
Safety and lost workdays is another focus of general trades contractors. Many contractors use equipment and devices to make sure their jobsite or work area is safe for all workers like air monitoring devices, eye wash stations, and portable shower systems to wash off possible carcinogens before heading home for the day. Most of this equipment also requires calibration, maintenance and general inspections. The Slate Pages app affords quick, easy to use, and transparent safety inspections for all!
