It has been almost seven years since The Orange County Register published Ian Hamilton’s article “iPads Out on Construction Sites”. In his story, Hamilton discussed how D 7 Consulting was leading the way in the industry by introducing iPad technology into the field. Today, after a hugely successful trial run, the entire D 7 Consultant and Quality Assurance Observer (QAO) team has been on board for several years with iPads utilizing them on a daily bases for all things necessary from the job site. Replacing binders, note pads, digital cameras and laptop computers, iPad technology streamlines all aspects of D 7 site visits and project meetings into one device. Not only can the Consultants and QAOs write reports and take photographs on location at projects real-time, but they can use the cellular network and Wi-Fi to upload their data, review specifications and client information, send and receive emails, and access the internet. When something is such a huge advantage in field, it is amazing that more companies are not following the D 7 lead for all levels of employees.
