    With limited resources and increased pressure to deliver value to clients, general contractors struggle to utilize technology to enhance productivity while maintaining safe worksites. Leading organizations like Skanska are turning to emerging Internet of Things (IoT)-based innovations to solve these challenges. By researching, piloting, and evaluating construction technologies, Skanska is determining better ways to track people and assets in order to build smarter and safer. This presentation will focus on the opportunities, challenges, and proven practices around using IoT and real-time location systems (RTLS) to know which resources are on a jobsite and how they’re interacting with each other. By providing unprecedented real-time visibility into construction operations and safety incidents, software like Spot-r by Triax are helping organizations like Skanska mitigate operational risks and enhance efficiency on the job.
