SiteSense helps Material Managers digitize materials management processes by helping them to effectively and accurately communicate material location and status with the construction teams.
Prior to using SiteSense, customers problems with manual material management methods result in higher construction costs and project schedule slippage due to the following issues: (1) Paperwork processes result in data entry errors on what was received, where it was stored, etc. (e.g. entries can be wrong, or not entered at all). (2) Paperwork handoff between people results in delayed entry into systems and spreadsheets, which means decisions can be made on old data, in some cases very expensive mistakes like re-ordering materials or shuffling construction sequences or delaying construction activities. (3) Tracking using spreadsheets results in inaccurate data due to decentralization of data and/or haphazard access between users, deleting, overwriting, etc. (4) Lost materials result in re-ordering costs and schedule slippage if the delay pushes other related construction activities. The sectors SiteSense caters to:
(1) Industrial Construction Projects (greenfield and brownfield) for oil/gas, mining, power, petrochemical and forestry
(2) Industrial Turnaround and shutdown projects
