Navigate the Construction Jungle: Record, Assign and Track Tasks On The Fly During On-Site Inspections

Precision and attention to detail are the unsung heroes of the construction game. That’s where construction site walkabouts swoop in to zero-down on the fine detail bigger project workplans miss. Walkabouts make projects shine by ensuring the nitty gritty, fine detail is taken care of so projects can be successfully moved forward and completed.

In the wild world of construction, where every nail and beam matters, site walkabouts are essential to make sure everything is on point – from tasks left undone to those jobs that simply aren’t up to standard.

 

Leaving the not-so-smart traditional ways behind

Now, let’s talk about the old-school methods of making notes during walkabouts. While walking around the site, this generally involves scribbling notes on a notepad or entering them on digital devices not purpose-built for construction. But here’s the kicker – transferring those notes to whiteboards or spreadsheets is where the chaos starts. Depending on the quality of your handwriting or notetaking, it can be like decoding an ancient language, and guess what? Things get lost in translation. And it’s even worse when notes go missing.

This traditional manual process not only slows you down but can lead to misunderstandings, delays, and a whole lot of head-scratching. It’s time for an upgrade, and that’s where Trusstor steps in.

 

Issues — a game-changing, easy-to-use digital tool

Trusstor, with its construction wisdom passed down through the generations, has conjured up something special – Issues. When you spot an issue during a walkabout, instead of fumbling with notepads or devices, you whip out your phone, tap a few buttons, and voila! The issue is recorded, assigned, and ready to roll. No more lost notes, no more decoding sessions. It’s the construction manager’s dream come true.

Once a task has been noted, users can take a snap or add documents, to make it crystal clear what needs to be done. Tasks can then be linked to Trusstor’s Dynamic Workplan, allowing management to see on-the-ground progress of non-completed tasks.

And Issues is not just for Trusstor customers. Even if you’re not in the Trusstor fam, you can still bask in the glory of this intuitive digital tool by getting VIP access to a construction task manager designed by the pros, fueled by advanced tech.

 

Standardizing and synchronizing the reporting of on-site tasks

Even if you’re in the middle of nowhere with no internet, but you’ve stumbled upon a task that needs attention, Trusstor has you covered. Issues lets you create tasks from the middle of the desert if needed. Tasks can be recorded anywhere, anytime without the need for internet connectivity. Issues simply syncs up once you’re back in the digital realm. It’s the superhero cape for staying connected and ensuring no task is left hanging.

Issues simplicity allows the easy standardization of task identification and reporting, and synchronizes the status of task execution, prioritization and responsibility. And when needed, reports can be sent in a snap to management, on-site teams and contractors.

 

Reducing delays, rework and disappointments

By using Issues during your walkabouts, you catch problems early, swooping in before disaster strikes. No costly rework, no disappointments – just a final result that’s beyond expectations.

In the construction hustle, where time is money and projects are like intricate puzzles, being proactive is the name of the game. Issues helps you foster a culture of proactiveness by not only recording a task but assigning them to the team member responsible for getting it done. It’s not just about fixing problems; it’s about identifying them, getting them tackled head-on, and making sure your construction ship sails smoothly.

 

In a nutshell: Issues allows you walk the talk in construction

Construction site walkabouts are not just strolls; they’re strategic maneuvers that set the stage for excellence. With Issues in your toolkit, you’re not just navigating the construction jungle, you’re conquering it. So, lace up those boots, grab your construction wizard wand (a.k.a. your smartphone), and get ready to conquer the construction world, one site stroll at a time.

 

Ready to put a digital ‘pep in your step’ during on-site walkarounds? Schedule a demo with Trusstor today to discover the power of Issues, the ultra-smart, easy-to-operate task management tool.
