Here at Refurbify we want to make the construction industry more efficient.
It may sound simple but if you’ve ever been involved in a construction project you will know it’s not an easy task; with multiple participants, projects, regulations and conflicting agendas. So where to start? Easy, at the beginning.
We believe that efficiencies can only be made if everyone benefits. This means all participants in the project life cycle collaborating together to decrease costs, increase quality and improve transparency. Sounds like an unrealistic utopia? Not at all. Most modern industries do this. In fact construction is one of the last remaining mega industries that still heavily relies on paper-based, manual processes with margin being gained through conflict and disputes.
The construction industry has historically been reluctant to embrace technology, seeing it as expensive, cumbersome and intrusive. However, recent developments in cloud and mobile technology have changed this meaning that vital information is readily accessible in the field through smart phones and tablets enabling information to be collected quickly, simply and accurately by workers on-site and fed back into the cloud to help management make real time decisions.
