As the construction industry digitizes, the tools have moved from the desktop to the field and are now forecasting the future.
Bridgit co-founder and CEO Mallorie Brodie said when the company put out Bridgit Field as its first product there was already a move towards digitization but it focused on the office rather than the worksite.
“What we were seeing was there was software in the industry but a lot of it wasn’t mobile-first. The team on the jobsite might be given software to use but they had to be sitting down at the trailer to enter information. It wasn’t the full value they could be getting from software if it was a mobile app,” she said.
