Working digitally on the construction site with Ninox

The need for digitization in the construction industry is substantial. Standard software solutions often do not allow medium-sized companies to realize specific needs and wishes for individuality. A platform like Ninox enables exactly this flexibility.

Challenge

Digitization? Yes, but according to our own ideas

Innovation requires a willingness to change. At Valeres, it was a site manager who questioned the existing workflows with Excel, Word and paper documents. However, the management did not want a ready-made, inflexible industry software, but an individual, smart solution that could be adapted to the team's well-rehearsed processes and gradually integrated into the daily work routine. The first use case in Ninox was the listing of deficiencies and their elimination, as well as corresponding documentation. Initial skepticism soon gave way to the conviction that they had found the ideal tool for digitalizing business processes.

Solution

Step by step to the customized solution

Together with Ninox's construction industry-focused external partner called “Digital vereinfacht” a wish list was created as a starting point. At the top: A reliable master data management for customers, partners, projects and employees. Once this was realized to the satisfaction of all involved, task planning, various checklists, cost overviews, deficiency documentation and fleet management gradually followed. Feedback from employees was taken into account at every step. The result was a comprehensive solution that is precisely tailored to Valeres’ processes and can be used anywhere, in the office, at home, and with mobile devices even on the construction site. And the knowledge of the possibilities gives rise to new ideas for enhancements every day.

Benefits

Through Ninox, a coherent workflow has been created, starting from the inquiry and acquisition, to the planning and construction management. Every site manager uses
Ninox intuitively, so that every deficiency and every acceptance on the construction site is created in Ninox and the finished report is also generated there. The site
manager sits down in his car and from now on does not need to worry about processing a report. Furthermore, the internal e-mail traffic has decreased, because
the internal task assignment runs in the developed task management of Ninox. Thus, there is more structure throughout the company and there is no duplication of work.
