Mobile Data Opportunities in Construction

Posted by Cherie Howlett on 10-May-2023 14:18:56

Mobile data opportunities in construction are plentiful, as companies look to improve their waste management, reduce their construction costs and improve employee safety.

All construction sites need temporary telephony and WiFi for site offices. Jola partners operating in construction are also providing mobile data solutions for tracking and monitoring equipment and for security solutions such as IP CCTV cameras and alarm systems to help construction sites improve security and reduce costs.


Tool Handling

On a construction site, an array of tools are used by trained operatives to complete jobs at each stage of the project. Cranes, for example, need to be fitted with data loggers to record key operational parameters so lifting operations can be reviewed and monitored.

Equipment Monitoring

Asset-tracking devices can now be glued to almost any construction tool. Bluetooth technology combined with an app on a smartphone allows for a near-real-time tracking of location. It also records where the device was last seen should it go missing. 

Worker Safety

Push-to-talk radios, monitoring and recording devices all help improve communications and support safe systems of work.

Site Monitoring

Construction sites are often targeted by criminals so tracking assets and investing in CCTV is a must for sites however long they are operational.


One of the biggest challenges construction companies face is managing their IT requirements in multiple sites on short-term contracts. Channel partners can help by offering short-term contracts and devices on a DaaS model with no upfront costs. SIMs can be carefully monitored in Mobile Manager and pooled data allows usage to be shared. Companies like Jola are helping partners operating in vertical markets such as construction and manufacturing, to understand the needs of their end-users and provide case studies of similar solutions used with excellent pricing to help win the deals.
