Construction companies continue to improve inefficiencies using technology for jobsite monitoring. And mobile devices are being used in this area, as apps are in high demand.

For example, OxBlue, www.oxblue.com, Atlanta, Ga., has a new app for clients who use iPhones and iPads. The development of the enhanced app is in response to clients’ increased use of mobile devices for accessing construction Webcams, reviewing archived jobsite images, generating time-lapse movies, and communicating with project stakeholders.

The advantages of OxBlue’s latest app, which was developed for compatibility with iOS 8, include: clean, crisp display of high-resolution jobsite images; multiple dashboards and social media integration; and more intuitive navigation and greater speed.

This new app is free to OxBlue clients and available through the App Store. Recently, the construction Webcam service provider also released a new app for Android smartphones and tablets; it is available through Google Play. Both apps enable clients to view jobsites and manage projects when on the go by allowing users to: access multiple construction cameras in realtime, view high-resolution archived images of projects, easily locate images from specific dates and times, view high-definition construction time-lapse movies, and share jobsite images.

Each OxBlue construction camera system includes all hardware, easy-to-use technologies, cellular data connection, and a professionally produced construction time-lapse movie of the completed project.

In other news, OxBlue was recently awarded a Schedule 84 contract by the U.S. GSA (General Services Admin.), the procurement arm of the federal government. The five-year contract allows government buyers to quickly and efficiently purchase OxBlue construction Webcam services. OxBlue’s contract was effective starting January 1, 2015.

OxBlue’s status as a GSA Schedule 84 vendor enables government buyers to obtain OxBlue construction cameras, jobsite monitoring technologies, support services, and construction time-lapse videos at approved pricing and license terms.
