TappetBox's Data Capture Solutions Streamline Construction Workflow

helping construction companies to ease the data-capturing process
TappetBox was born out of the realization that the construction industry lacks modern frameworks for data capturing and maintenance, particularly in equipment monitoring and management. TappetBox App helps construction companies collect, track & manage data more efficiently, and streamlines workflow & reduces costs.

Nishant Maitre - Founder, TappetBox

We are helping construction companies to ease the data-capturing process for logsheets, services, job cards, fuel and expense transactions, fuel station management, and inventory transactions.
The construction industry operates in an old-fashioned manner, lacking significant frameworks for data capturing or maintenance activity. With the increasing dependency on equipment, the need for frameworks to monitor, maintain, and manage equipment became evident. This realization gave birth to TappetBox.

TappetBox is a service and solution that addresses issues and solves problems in the construction industry. It aims to ease the data-capturing process for various aspects such as logsheets, services, job cards, fuel and expense transactions, fuel station management, and inventory transactions. The app offers several unique selling points (USPs), including a simple user interface with a low learning curve, making it easy for team members with basic education to enter information. Its quick implementation provides instant results, and it is suitable for companies with 10 assets to those with 3000+ assets. By increasing the flow of information between different stakeholders, TappetBox empowers them to make timely decisions.

helping construction companies to ease the data-capturing process

TappetBox offers almost 21 modules and functionalities to choose from, including digital asset mapping, digital logsheets, productivity tracking, fuel tracking, fuel station management, service tracking, job cards (tickets), downtime tracking, employees imprest management, inventory management, indents, purchase requisitions, purchase orders, purchases, allocations and consumption, asset site transition, compliance tracking, asset documentations, inventory forecasting, employees database, employee asset linking, and roles-based permission and transactions auto-locking.

We anticipate tremendous growth in our journey within the construction industry. Over the past seven years, we have acquired valuable insights that have significantly matured our product. With a renewal rate surpassing 95%, our success is evident. By focusing on attaining customer stickiness, we can naturally foster virality within the industry.

The following case studies exemplify how our company has effectively fostered synergy among various stakeholders within the construction industry, driving transformative outcomes and revolutionizing the way projects are managed.
Our company assisted a client managing over 3000 equipment across 100+ sites, addressing several challenges they faced. The primary issue was collecting logsheet data, including running time, fuel consumption, and productivity, from all the sites for progress assessment. Furthermore, they encountered difficulties with service tracking and maintenance history, resulting in a high failure rate that hindered production. However, TappetBox provided a seamless solution by facilitating logsheet data collection and enabling efficient service tracking for each piece of equipment. This transition allowed them to shift from reactive to preventive maintenance. The P&M Team now generates maintenance tickets for issues and maintains a comprehensive equipment history.

Another client struggled with timely logsheet entry from their sites, even with SAP implementation. The existing manual process involved site personnel filling out logsheets and submitting them to the site office, where a data entry person manually entered the data into SAP. This process caused delays and required follow-up to obtain missing information. To address this, our company introduced the Logsheet App to streamline the process. Each site member, including P&M Head, P&M Executive, Civil Engineers, Plant Operators, and Weighbridge Operators, received a mobile application. Custom Workflow based on different activities (WBS) allowed stakeholders to enter their data sequentially. The compiled data is then sent to TappetBox servers and subsequently pushed to SAP in batches. As a result, the site no longer requires a data entry team, and data accuracy has significantly improved, thanks to the capture of details from every stakeholder responsible for data entry.

helping construction companies to ease the data-capturing process

A major equipment rental company faced challenges in capturing logsheets, service records, and inventory data. They struggled to keep track of materials sent to sites and their subsequent consumption on assets, leading to a lack of visibility and control. Additionally, they lacked a framework for creating purchase requisitions, purchase orders, purchases, and inventory allocation. By implementing TappetBox, the company achieved systematic inventory processing. Materials sent to the site are allocated to specific machines and can be either consumed or returned to the warehouse. TappetBox also facilitates service and repair tracking. All site operators use mobile phones to update job cards and record services performed on assets.

In the beginning stages of a construction industry startup, challenges arise.
Companies tend to undervalue the importance of Plant and Machinery (P&M) departments in comparison to Civil or Production departments since P&M doesn’t generate direct revenue. Consequently, the top management allocates limited focus and resources to P&M-related products, making implementation difficult. Additionally, there is a prevalent resistance to change, with a perception that individuals lack the necessary education and adaptability to embrace new technologies. Companies exhibit skepticism towards the sustainability of new startups, resulting in a reluctance to adapt and a preference for enduring the manual data entry pains they currently face.
