To assist you in putting forward your proposition for a bonded internet solution on your construction site, we’ve put together a business case. This business case is based on some of the reasons the top construction companies we work with have opted for this solution.
In the construction industry, operational objectives are focused around improving efficiency, innovation and retaining the integrity of IT security. A bonded internet solution like Continuum helps to achieve these objectives by providing a fast, reliable internet connection for construction sites. This optimises on-site access to communications, information and innovative construction technologies which rely on an internet connection. As a result, productivity is improved, which in turn reduces the risk of delays. In addition, the Continuum solution can be configured to connect to your VPN, alleviating any concerns over data and system security.
Financial objectives relate to increasing productivity and efficiency, managing costs and reducing the risk of financial penalties resulting from project delays. Continuum provides a fast, reliable internet connection, optimising on-site internet performance to support communications and the use of construction technologies. This increases productivity and efficiency to help meet financial targets. Continuum can also help mitigate against the risk of delays, a major cause of escalating costs. The Continuum solution provides an on-site internet connection from day one and significantly reduces the risk of intermittent connectivity and downtime, thereby reducing the risk of projects overrunning as a result of connectivity issues.
Customers and Market
Construction companies are facing increased competition, with a 6.2% increase in firms operating in the construction industry and increasing numbers of insolvencies. Therefore, customer satisfaction and managing brand reputation is an area of priority. Should your construction project be delayed as a result of connectivity problems, customer satisfaction will be negatively impacted and it can cause damage to your brand. As explained above, Continuum helps mitigate against the risk of delayed projects caused by on-site internet connection problems. Continuum also supports access to essential on-site communications, keeping dialogue open between site workers, project stakeholders and your customers.
The construction industry is facing a skills shortage amongst workers. Therefore increasing employee retention through employee job satisfaction is more important than ever. Unsuitable and unreliable on-site internet connectivity can be a source of frustration for site workers. A solution such as Continuum improves the on-site internet experience for workers, increasing satisfaction and leading to employee retention.
