Subcontractors have a unique set of needs—especially when it comes to adopting new technology. One company is discovering cloud-based project-management and mobile technology can improve jobsite processes significantly.
eSUB, www.esub.com, San Diego, Calif., has signed an agreement with Midwest Stairs & Iron, Milwaukee, Wis., to implement eSUB as the company’s cloud-based project-management and mobile solution for the field.
Midwest Stairs & Iron designs and fabricates stairs, balconies, railings, and miscellaneous metals pledged for product safety, built for longevity, weather resistance, and cost valued. The subcontractor manufactures its metal products in the United States to ensure careful quality control from the production of 3D CAD (computer-aided design) and BIM (building information modeling) shop drawings to fabrication to delivery.
Also, the specialty contractor emphasizes safety as its No. 1 priority and offers GBC Safety Glow photo-luminescent products for emergency egress lighting preparedness. From architect to the general contractor, to the property owner, Midwest Stairs & Iron ensures all parties are on the same page and confident in the work it performs. Communication is central to the company’s long-standing philosophy to offer stakeholder confidence to guarantee installations without flaws.
This is where project-management technology comes into play. With eSUB, Midwest Stairs & Iron will have the tools and information it needs to track every project detail. Realtime updates and continual communication seamlessly connect the field with the office. Tracking all of documents in one hosted location means they are secure and available right at the team’s fingertips.
