Worksite intelligence platforms, such as Eyrus, Evolved, are a prime example of how technology can drive greater efficiency and lower costs while improving worker safety.

Platform features can include:

Onboarding/Self Registration

Self-perform and trade partner workers simply scan a QR code or tap a link in a text message to register for a new project, making it easier than ever to get started on a project on their time. Registration activities include completing and signing off on project training and onboarding materials, entering their demographic information, and verifying necessary certifications. Worker registrations can be processed through an approval workflow, which is expected to greatly reduce the administration burden placed on project teams and cut registration/onboarding time by 50%.

Integration With Third Party Background Check Providers

Integrations with multiple identity verification and background check companies streamline the worker onboarding process. Once a worker registers for a project, the vendor embeds background checks into the onboarding workflow, continuing to reduce administrative burden for project teams and eliminate having to manage multiple steps in the process.

Hardware-Free Deployment and Digital Badges

Each worker’s mobile phone can act as a “digital badge” for controlling site access, geo-locating workers in defined project work areas, and ensuring workers are accounted for in case of a safety or emergency event. This functionality eliminates the need for onsite hardware - beacons and badges - resulting in a 40% reduction in the cost of deploying the solution..

Remote Badge Printing

Remote badge printing, whereby badges can be printed remotely and sent out upon worker registration approval, reduces the burden on project teams, eliminating the need to hand out badges and beacons.

Enhanced Worker Collaboration

Site teams can allow workers to view and edit time sheets based on system permissions. This increases the transparency of data collected at the worker level, which improves adoption and collaboration.

According to KPMG’s "2021 Global Construction Survey," advanced data analytics tools were ranked the third-most-influential technology, with the potential to deliver the greatest overall return on investment to construction owners and contractors.

By leveraging the “Internet of Things,” these platforms reduce the project administrative burden by 25% by automating key processes including worker onboarding, project time keeping and compliance reporting.
