Digital Construction Week 2019
Well DCW 2019 has been amazing and we were so proud to be a part of this huge event! We were exhibiting on stand C18 and had a very busy two days of meeting construction professionals from across the world, all keen to explore how digital can help them in ‘real life practice’ and really add value to the industry.
The missing piece to a productive, efficient and secure digital site.
It was interesting to listen to people sharing the problems that they have with connectivity on site and how common a problem this is as they try to struggle on with not fit for purpose solutions. It was encouraging to hear that they are very much looking for a better way to do this and were keen to discover how their teams on site can work quicker, faster more efficiently. We spoke to several IT teams who are set the task of going to sites to get them connected and how much resource this took whilst also trying to run busy IT departments. They were also struggling from a security point of view by not knowing who are using their routers or dongles and having trace ability for the data that they’re using and more importantly the security of the data being transferred. We spoke to a number of Project Managers too who are at the cold hard face of trying to work without ‘proper’ communication on site and hearing the impact that that can have on their day to day life and getting things done in a timely manner.
We had a great time at this event and look forward to making an appearance next year!
