Building & Construction

Building and construction businesses face ever-increasing requirements for documentation and compliance. Streamlining and digitalising these workflows can deliver significant cost savings and improve compliance. Upstream provides workflow solutions that help building and construction businesses stay ahead of the curve.

Building and construction workflow solutions that save time and keep your business compliant

The building and construction industry is paperwork-intensive. Capturing and indexing the daily paperwork can be complex and time consuming, as well as error-prone. Handwritten documents can be lost, site managers have to visit the office to submit paperwork, and information could be entered incorrectly by accident.

Uploading relevant documents into existing business management tools can also be difficult. These documents can include purchase orders, work orders, safety checklists, certificates, and even photographs. Physically scanning and saving these documents manually requires hours of work each day from staff members who could add more value doing something else.

Furthermore, there are associated risks and lack of efficiency associated with the time delay in accessing critical information.

Upstream offers customised solutions that streamline and automate this workflow, freeing up staff to contribute in other ways and reducing related risks.
