How You Can Create a Wireless Building and Construction Ecosystem
Wireless technology in building and construction have always gone hand-in-hand. The challenge over the last 20 years has been how to implement a cost-effective solution with projects that have so many moving parts.
Westlake’s AIRmobility® is a perfect match for any building or construction firm that has multiple projects and orders, with multiple employees making multiple deliveries and multiple inspections simultaneously.
Every feature and function noted below can be demonstrated to you, live and operating with your existing paper-based forms at no cost or obligation.
We have effectively organized the transition of all building and construction paperwork into what we call a Wireless Building and Construction Ecosystem. This will enable management to centrally track every aspect of every project in real-time, directly from your office.
We combine the wireless conversion of paperwork (time cards, work orders, expense forms, delivery forms, inspection forms) onto commercially available handsets such as the Blackberry, Android phones or tablets or Motorola iDEN. The new wireless version of your paperwork can include:
Our system is designed for our customers to have total control over their wireless forms. For example, you can add all the vendors you wish to an expense form and control this on the fly
All data captured and collected gets transferred in real-time to an online data collection center that offers:
All data is made available in an easy to use spreadsheet that is available online.

A few examples of how AIRmobility® is being used today in the construction industry:
Your new Wireless Building and Construction Ecosystem:
All of your paperwork is now moved to wireless handsets. Management is able to see, via photo capture, how jobs were started and how they were left. The company saves time and fuel by not spending the extra time needed to physically go to the location. GPS tracking is assisting in the delivery of materials and creating route efficiencies to save in fuel costs. Inspection forms are now submitted on the fly, supporting immediate management alerts if certain inspection levels are triggered. Time cards are now managed and benchmarked via geo-fencing workers with their reported time.
The AIRmobility® telematics capabilities are state-of-the-art. You can combine multiple routes together. You can provide geo-fencing, track hours in a geo-fence, account for miles driven, stop times, start times, etc.
