Growing up in Cambodia, the world’s most heavily landmined country, demining is a cause that is very important to Richard Yim. This prompted Yim and four fellow mechanical engineering students at the University of Waterloo to develop a demining robot for a group project. In 2016, they started a company with a mission to reduce casualties in demining, which Yim describes as “the world’s most physically intensive field.”

Increase Construction Productivity with Mobile Time Tracking Apps

Article | April 15, 2020

Since the 1950’s, United States agricultural and manufacturing industries have increased their productivity rates by 1,000%. In stark contrast, productivity rates for the U.S. construction industry haven’t increased at all. Thanks to the rise of construction-technology, there are less obvious and less expensive ways to become more efficient. And they don’t involve completely changing the way you build. Instead, they use mobile apps to speed up or automate time-consuming administrative tasks. So you, your employees and your subs can spend less time on “busy work” and more time on the work that moves your projects forward.
