Benefits Of Using QR Codes In Construction

Use QR codes on the construction sites to streamline inventory management, asset tracking and data collection.

QR Codes are a natural fit for the construction industry and contractors (HVAC, plumbing, electrical, roofing, etc.). These are industries with the dispersed field workforce. Most of the work is conducted on the multiple job sites. Tools and inventory are stored on the service trucks, as well as in the warehouse, and are used in the field, on the job sites. Job site employees do not have ready access to the computers or wifi connection. Smartphones and QR codes provide a good replacement.

QR codes give field employees a reliable way to access and record inventory and asset info. By scanning a QR code using a mobile app on a smartphone, job site technicians can access and update data in real time.

A QR code system helps construction companies create a real time communication between the job sites and the office. Everyone has an access to the same live information.
