Top Three Tech Practices You Should Be Using On Site

The following article was originally posted by Stephanie Zucchi on the www.zbrella.com website.

Construction and technology go together like peanut butter and jelly…but sometimes someone forgets to put the jelly on! More often than not, good technology practices on a site are more like a peanut butter sandwich with no jelly in sight. That’s why ZBRELLA Tech is narrowing down our top picks for best practices. Here are our top 3 technology practices you should be using onsite:

RFID Tags

Radio Frequency Identification tags (RFID tags) are chips that use an ID system to automatically track tags that have been attached to objects. RFID tags are extremely popular in an array of different industries, and they are particularly useful to the construction sector. Theft causes the construction industry more than $1 billion per year, and only 10% of that equipment is recovered.

How To Keep Going…

The following article was originally posted by Daniel Kosmala on the www.foojee.com website.

When a service is done well and provides value in the background, it can be easy for clients to see a monthly invoice and be caught off guard. They’re left to wonder why they are paying any amount of money to a company that, to them, seems to provide nominal value.

When situations like this arise it tells us, as service providers, that we are not communicating our value in the most effective way. We believe if clients were reminded what they’re paying for then they would happily sign a check. You’re in charge of discovering the best way to communicate your value in an effective and systematic way.

The other side of the coin is that if we forget about the value we know we can provide, just like a client may not see our value, it can feel like we’re not making a difference. Discouragement is swift to show its face in those situations.
