Here at VRM we want to make the housing industry more efficient.
We want to do this by using cutting edge technology to digitize the industry, putting large housing stock owners in total control of their supply chain and providing an irrefutable audit trail to ensure clear transparency and accountability.
It may sound simple but if you’ve ever been involved in a large 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, mobile and sensor technology have changed this, meaning that vital information is readily accessible in the field through smart phones and IoT sensors enabling information to be collected quickly, simply and accurately and fed back into the cloud to help owners make real time decisions and efficiencies.
