Rugged mobile devices finding a place in the construction industry

Posted: January 17, 2014

Mobile devices are being increasingly used by project management professionals to share data, communicate with foremen and complete other essential tasks at work sites. This boom in mobile adoption in the industry has been widespread yet quick. As a result, some builders are integrating mobile solutions into their operations without much thought.

This can be a counterproductive process, as some devices are more suited to handle construction applications and the rigors of the work site than other smartphones and tablets. According to Constructech, contractors should be agile enough to change their mobile strategies, depending on different conditions and demands. However, one of the most important tasks associated with going mobile is making sure workers are using the best devices available.

Fortunately, Stuff recently listed some of the most durable smartphones on the market, most of which are perfect for construction professionals. The source noted that the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 is a useful product, as it is sand- and dust-proof. Other quality smartphones included the JCB Toughphone Pro-Smart TP909, the Sony Xperia Go, the Motorola Defy+ and CAT B10. All of these phones are able to withstand harsh conditions, making them great choices for contractors on the go.
