Progress tracking and concise messaging: Utilizing RootFacts for civil engineering auto photos and communication management.

Civil engineering projects are dynamic organisms with life that grows, transforming from abstract ideas into something tangible. Having open channels of communication, notifying stakeholders and progress tracking can be a daunting task. These include segmented communications networks, manual cameras and time-consuming logic for generating progress report details. This could be just what the doctor ordered for civil engineering firms as far as automated progress photo and communication management is concerned.

This guide aims to demystify automation in progress photography as well as capture and control of communications within the construction industry. Moreover, we will also look at pitfalls concerning traditional approach in order to enhance project visibility and communication before finally illustrating how RootFacts has supported its clients all over Africa in realizing their technologies.

Difficulties of Manual Progress Photo Management

Massive amounts of visual data such as daily site images, milestones reached during construction or inspection records, are generated by civil engineering projects. Nonetheless, there are challenges involved when handling these images manually:

Inconsistent Capture

Continuous shooting throughout a project may result in gaps between pictures showing the development stages.

Time-Consuming Workflow

Even putting up these photographs on a website after classifying them needs some field staff’s or project manager’s time.

Limited Accessibility

Sharing photos with numerous non-local stakeholders might take too much time slowing down conversations about it.

Version Control Problems

It is not easy to track everyone with different versions of an image whenever changes are made regularly.

Emergence of Automated Progress Photo Capture

One solution to this challenge is to use automated systems that take pictures of ongoing work progress. They typically include but are not limited to:

Lapse Time Cameras

Cameras which have been placed strategically capture images at regular intervals providing pictorial evidence which depicts steps taken at a construction site.

Drone Photography

Drones provide imagery above sites from where they were taken thus giving a complete view of the site’s state at different instances.

360° Camera Capture

It is always possible to totally virtualize a place by capturing images simultaneously using several lenses.

Benefits of Automated Progress Photo Capturing With RootFacts

When you use RootFacts automated tools for progress photo capture in your civil engineering business, you will realize the following gains:

Increased Project Visibility

Progress images on RootFacts website can be accessed by users who want accountability and transparency.

Decreased Site Visits

Time and money can be saved through remote access of progress images thereby reducing the need for regular visits to a site.

Entire Visual Record

The automatic capturing system provides uninterrupted visual project history from building footing to completion.

Improved Communication

Visual updates allow clients, investors and other stakeholders to clearly understand where the project is at.

Effective Data Management

Stored images are automatically organized by RootFacts platform so no manual file management or uploads are needed.

Automation of Processes for Effective Communication

The process of taking photographs during construction is just one way communication takes place. Apart from automating the procedure of capturing these types of photos, Rita offers other solutions that are aimed at streamlining communication on public works projects.

Automated Reporting

This saves time for generating reports by creating customized ones from different sources like images or data coming from automation and others which require regular updating.

Communication Log and Issue Tracking

The centralised communication log documents all discussions about a particular task thereby making it possible to trace issues to the individuals responsible for them or discuss them with other involved parties.

Task Management and Notifications

Assigning tasks ensures that there is effective operation-related photo capture, reporting, and communication while keeping track of progress until its timely completion. On this matter, accountability action should be taken and timely follow-ups must also be given their due.

Advantages Of Using RootFacts For Automated Communication Management

RootFacts automated communications tools that yield significant rewards whenever users take pictures showing how far they have moved in their work.
