The Advantages of Digital Soil Tracking in Earthworks

The Advantages of Digital Soil Tracking in Earthworks

It cannot be denied — parts of the construction world still have a lot of room to grow in digitizing itself. As a whole, the construction industry remains one of the least digitized industries in the world, and yet, in an increasingly paperless world, it is still one of the most relevant. How can the builders of our society have fallen so far behind? Especially when some of the most common conflicts in construction are related to the amount of material moved, relying on accuracy and collaboration. While the honest work done by hardworking people in the dirt world never changes, our resources and equipment need to always stay current — soil tracking software does that. You can crystallize your data in a centralized place, move material faster and more efficiently, and avoid risky contaminations that create health and financial setbacks.

This in turn leads to up-to-the-minute information about excavation progress. 

Enhanced Project Management on Construction Sites

A common pain point for many in the construction industry is communication between the office and the field. Projects rely on dated and manual paper reports between  the field and in-office professionals and. The success of a project relies on effective information exchange between those parties in an efficient and accurate manner.

By utilizing digital soil tracking software, project managers are better equipped to make prompt decisions that reflect the real-time data on-site. They are able to continuously optimize project schedules and keep timelines moving steadily.

Construction teams also need to collect, standardize and store site information effectively. Utilizing paper often ends with documents being lost or damaged, creating an environment of guesswork and assumptions..
