In a Trillion dollar industry majority of the projects spend at least 5% of budget on unexpected risk related costs, the U.S. insurance industry pays more than $5 billion annually to settle construction defect claims and the average injury cost is double the overall average. General contractors continue to look for ways to reduce and mitigate project risks and associated costs and in today's world of mobile and cloud technology, photo documentation is not only present but gaining traction. The technology sector has already taken note and FotoIN is leading the charge in automating the very manual, cumbersome and inefficient photo documentation process of yesterday.
industry associations like AGC are playing a key leadership role and continue to do a great job, in tandem with the membership, to rise awarness and coordinate efforts with technology providers to better serve the industry. Task and process automation, user experience simplification and cross compatibility of systems are key.
