Construction Technology and Construction IoT are becoming the new norm when it comes to worksite productivity, but with so many new innovations, it can be overwhelming. With multiple construction apps, data, and more, managers have a lot going on, and trying to find the best solution can be stressful and confusing.
Eyrus COO & Co-Founder Hussein Cholkamy has a simplified solution and message for those looking to find an easy solution when it comes to construction intelligence and construction productivity tracking.
Sr. Marketing Manager for Eyrus, Jack Murphy, sat down with Eyrus COO & Co-Founder Hussein Cholkamy about the innovative solutions Eyrus is implementing to disrupt the construction technology industry for good, here’s what he had to say:
Fitting within the Site Workflow with Optionality: No matter the size of a construction project, Eyrus’ built-in capabilities provide the optionality to fit the needs of each and every aspect of a construction site.
“Since each project, small to large, General Contract or Trade Partner has their own needs and requirements, Eyrus was built to provide the optionality to fit the needs of each and every aspect of the site. With Eyrus, construction data collection can be acquired directly from the worker via an APP, or indirectly via badging, or manually by having a supervisor check in the team members.” - Cholkamy
Automated Data Collection: There is a new age of staying organized and simplifying your workforce, and that is automated construction data collection.
“At Eyrus we like to say, ‘You focus on building and we focus on collecting the construction data you need to manage your team and make informed decisions.’ We say this because we know that construction teams have 'browser fatigue' with all the different apps/software to have to learn in order to stay on top of the progress of their site. With the construction labor shortage, access to knowledge that the right team member is in the right place at the right time on site is important to maintain your schedule and stay on top of your deployment. We built a platform that leverages a variety of automated construction data collection (BLE badges, beacons, app, and/or text messaging) to keep you informed with an active central workforce database giving you access to data from the field in real-time. - Cholkamy
Timely Access to Data: Eyrus provides real-time access to construction data to help project teams make faster, more informed decisions. With small to large-scale projects, managers need more effective and simplified solutions to ensure worker safety, eliminate risk, and provide necessary information to have their workers do the job they love most. Cholkamy says, “Project teams leverage Eyrus’ real-time construction data to quickly identify if the number and mix of workers on site do not line up to a Lean or CPM schedule, enhancing productivity.” - Cholkamy
Increased Data Accuracy: “Timesheet data is always open to the interpretation of the person entering it.” Cholkamy emphasizes there is always a need to leverage and take charge of construction timesheets and ensure accuracy. This can lead to headaches, complexities, and manual errors in trying to keep track of a large workforce. The solution? “Leveraging sensors (badges and beacons) project teams get actual construction data of who is on-site. Where someone is using an app to manually enter their timesheet might indicate that a worker was on site for 8 hours, Eyrus will tell you that that person was on site for 6.5 hours, 7.25 hours, or more. Eyrus’ capabilities allow a centralized location for construction project managers to go back to and confirm discrepancies or errors, simple and easy.” - Cholkamy
Automated Alerts: Flexibility, simplification, and automation, on your terms. Eyrus creates automated alerts to your specific needs on-site. Cholkamy explains how automated alerts can help in ensuring safety and risk enhancements on-site, “Restricted access could be due to schedule (e.g. don't want drywall or insulators in areas where rough in MEP is not completed) or safety (e.g. don't want unqualified workers to be in high voltage rooms in a data center). Customers also have the option to not restrict access but send alerts when workers happen to enter unauthorized areas, enhancing construction worker safety.” - Cholkamy
Eyrus enhances construction worksites, allowing industry leaders to spend more time on the task at hand and create more simplified and powerful decisions. A big thank you to Eyrus COO & Co-Founder Hussein Cholkamy for sitting down with the team and sharing how Eyrus is disrupting the construction technology industry for the better and “easier”.
