Capital Construction Solutions - a Chicago-based company offering tools for improving efficiency and safety of construction business.
The CCS company came up with the idea of reducing health risks at construction sites by taking advantage of the latest mobile and web technologies. A new tool was aimed to be used by responsible specialists to examine whether the workplace and construction processes meet all the safety criteria. It had to be not only efficient but also adaptive and easy to use on the go for all employees.
The client chose Vakoms to outsource the software development for being the experienced company with the wellknown individual approach. We’ve carefully listened to customer’s ideas, understood the needs, and together decided to create a digital platform which was called CCS Safety.
This service gives security officers and employees an ability to report quickly on the situation at construction sites. This can be done by answering predefined safety questions, developed by the leading research universities and government agencies. All information is available to responsible company managers in real time.
The CCS Safety platform consists of the following tools:
- iOS & Android apps for employees with the adjustable list of the questions depending on the work category. Also users can create and edit projects, upload pictures of issues, track and email specific safety issues, and resolve them
- Back End analytical website for construction firm managers with real-time reporting system and performance dashboards to track up to 30 specific parameters. It allows to specify question lists and projects to app users, customize UX to each employee, run analytics and benchmarks results, and share ‘lessons learned’
- administration website for CCS company itself to manage clients access and permissions
For this project Vakoms assembled a team consisting of 1 PM, 2 iOS, 2 Android, and 2 web developers (1 Front End and 1 Back End), and also 2 QA.
The first release of CCS web and mobile service was rolled out in just 2 month after the launchof cooperation. It became a real safety and expertise sharing platform for construction projects, helping to mitigate health risks and providing a real time of the equipment knowledge base for safety officers. Besides, this digital platform has dramatically reduced the amount of paperwork.
Capital Construction Solutions was awarded Honorable Mention for the 2015 American Society of Safety Engineers Innovation Award for safety in the workplace.
