That’s why HIA is helping members ‘go digital’ with advice and training on industry technology that connects people, rather than superseding them.
HIA’s TRADEPASS allows builders to access and manage all of the legal paperwork associated with hiring a contractor, including up-to-date insurance and licencing information. Accessing the right contractor information is now instant from wherever you’re working with the clever online system.
Meanwhile, construction software provides a greater degree of detail and accuracy in project management for teams of varying sizes. Relevant information, such as client communications, testing and approvals, schedules and product records, can be sent and made readily available to the relevant stakeholders so the information they need is ready before they know they need it.
Many manufacturers and suppliers have increased their offering to include apps, online chatbots and other comprehensive online re-sources that are dedicated to answering your questions fast. This is giving builders and trades access to an unprecedented amount of product-specific information on specifications, warranties, installation, compliance and more, saving the hassle of calling, waiting on hold, or risking improper installation methods.
