Construction daily reports are necessary for project management and tracking. The need to keep accurate and complete reports has caused the industry to evolve their process from pen and paper to spreadsheet software and now into simple to use mobile apps and software. This has greatly improved the way that daily reports are created, stored, and shared.
It is especially important in our market to find user friendly solutions when searching for technology to avoid issues with the less tech savvy users at the company. Easy to use construction app solutions are simple to implement and tend to have a larger time saving impact on the business as a whole. CDR Construction Daily Reports is a new mobile application, available for both Android and Apple devices, that aims to simplify daily reports, while also making the process more effective.
Daily reporting apps and software tend to pay for itself many times over simply through the time savings employees get when using them. It is also a life saver when you are in litigation and need to pull a report from a projects that were completed years ago! An easy way to understand the time value of a software is to compare the cost to the amount of time saved using it. For example: if a daily reporting software saves between 30 minutes and an hour every work day, that is between 2.5 to 5 hours in a 5 work day week. If the software costs $20/month, like CDR Construction Daily Reports, then it is easy to see great value in using that software.

While pen and paper remain the most popular form of note taking for the construction industry, it’s been proven over and over that electronically storing reports can save significant time and effort on any project. The ability to easily track, review, and search through electronic data can also help reduce costly rework and possible litigation.
