The construction industry is tackling some pretty hefty challenges these days — supply chain problems, stubborn inflation, a shortage of workers, and a bunch of economic uncertainties. To counter these, digital transformation has kicked into high gear, as construction firms aim to amp up efficiency and productivity while cutting overall costs.
Even though the construction sector has made some strides in embracing tech, hurdles like multiple stakeholders with conflicting interests, project complexities, and a lack of standardization often put the brakes on faster adoption. Nonetheless, making a move forward with digital transformation is seen as key for firms to stay competitive. And at Trusstor, we’re all about making tech adoption on construction sites a breeze.
For the past year, we’ve doubled down on our mission and have been beefing up Trusstor’s platform, rolling out even more digital tools. Why? So construction firms can jump into digital transformation with full confidence.
Check out these three big upgrades we brought to market in 2023:
1) A Dynamic Workplan for On-Site Activity Management
This digital workplan based on the Last Planner System® is a game-changer for construction planning. It takes the typical work planning used at construction sites and gives it a high-tech upgrade. This smart tool uses ready-made activities, templates, and workflows based on the best practices in construction project management. Users pick the activity sequence and timing, then Trusstor’s templates kick in, doing all the hard work by setting up the workplan automatically. It gives real-time updates on how the plan’s progressing, letting teams tweak resources and activities as needed to stay on track.
This Dynamic Workplan is a key part of Trusstor’s full package and links up with their IoT tags, updating everything automatically. It can also run solo if users prefer to update activities manually.
2) An Executive Dashboard to Give Insights in a Glance
Whether you’re on your desktop or mobile, Trusstor’s Executive Dashboard gives construction management an understanding of how things are progressing across all projects with just one quick glance. The data flows from Trusstor’s user-friendly IoT wearables that blend in on-site without any fuss, so the execs can track each project, the resources being used and the project completion rate.
This is because the dashboard delivers the real-time lowdown on every project, how each one is moving forward, highlights key milestones and even gives it a score for efficiency. Managers can use the dashboard to quickly check out the crew size versus the planned numbers, what tasks are being completed on time, and how the overall progress rate looks. It’s a game-changer for making smarter decisions and divvying up resources for every stage of every project.
3) Trusstor’s Analysis Hub
Trusstor’s centralized Analysis Hub has been created to allow users crunch on-site data in real-time and pull reports as required. That means getting the lowdown on equipment usage, worker performance, and project progress right at your fingertips. It gives instant access to what’s happening on-site, how projects are rolling, and where your team’s at in terms of activity progress.
This Analysis Hub is your backstage pass to a world of super-advanced digital insights. It delivers top-tier document digitization, pulling together data from all over your site, and giving you a bird’s eye view of everything happening.
This means you can check if your projects are running as planned or if there’s a need for some tweaks to avoid costly reworks and delays. Plus, it’s a game-changer for optimizing hoist usage and deployment, ensuring everything’s running smoothly.
You can run:
– Incident Reports: discover what personnel were present when an incident occurred.
– Daily Routine Reports: allows analysis of a specific person on the job site
– Worker Timesheet Report: reviews the hours worked onsite for daily workers as well as subs
– Location Report: find out who was at a specific location on a given day
These help construction pros make smarter decisions about resource allocation, project schedules, manage risks, keep an eye on quality, ensure safety measures, and ensure cost optimization.

Trusstor is unlike other tech solutions in construction because it was built for builders by builders. The result is that it seamlessly fits into the workplace and on-site life, giving visibility of workers, equipment and the projects they are working on across the site.
It’s all plug and play, so no hassle with cables or power requirements. Trusstor plays nice with all your existing IT systems, keeping your team safer and way more in-the-know, which means they can solve issues before they blow up into problems.
Trusstor helps builders slash costs, boost efficiency, and up their safety game. It’s all about making smarter decisions in real-time, handling crises on the fly, and cracking those daily on-site puzzles. It’s a leap into digital transformation that’s always a surefire win.
