Right now, productivity in the construction sector is below the UK average, and UK firms tend to be less competitive on price and delivery than their continental counterparts.
Daisy makes sure that doesn’t apply to you, by ensuring you have the right technology basics in place and introducing smarter applications where needed to transform productivity across the supply chain. We’ll also help you explore emerging technologies and identify those that fit your needs, so you’re always the best you can be.
A smooth, timely start can set the tone for an entire construction project. Our remote access technology provides dynamic, reliable IT and connectivity right from day one, reducing your infrastructure costs and avoiding countless planning headaches. Daisy Quick-Start is our complete, tailor-made service, offering instant 4G coverage, next-generation data security and optional hardware provision from PCs and tablets to phones, printers, routers and beyond.
On a network level, flexible Daisy technologies like SD-WAN put application performance front and centre, giving your people the freedom to work anywhere while always feeling connected.
With a scalable, elastic cloud-hosted infrastructure, your business just works better. Processes are optimised and IT costs lowered, new technology can be deployed at speed and information flows smoothly and securely through an integrated, high-performance core network. Cloud hosting also makes a natural home for evergreen productivity platforms like Microsoft 365.
Meanwhile, Daisy CloudBridge can help you optimise your infrastructure with a tailored combination of private and public cloud, effectively bridging the gap with any legacy technology. SD-WAN technology offers maximum flexibility in controlling your network across multiple sites.
Attracting and retaining able, skilled employees is a constant challenge for today’s firms. A great remuneration package is only half the story – firms that offer a more modern, motivating and fulfilling way of working are far more likely to have their pick of the crop.
With clients in multiple locations and the need to collaborate across all parts of a construction site, your firm needs a mobile solution that truly empowers employees.
Our approach equips them with tools that make a difference, from instant messaging to video and web conferencing, plus secure network access from any location or device. With our mobile device management (MDM) package, your phones and tablet are backed up remotely to protect against on-site loss or damage, while our bring-your-own-device options allow staff to access your networks securely via their own smartphone.
Ensuring each person has the right device with the right apps and permissions can be complicated. That’s why our Configure and Deliver process lets you set deployment options beforehand and leaves us to roll everything out.
In a cloud-hosted IT environment, “go-slow” systems are gradually stripped out, improving efficiencies and replacing common frustrations with a sense of “flow” and achievement. A more stable, flexible IT base allows your IT team to focus on enhancing your wider systems and processes, rather than merely “keeping the lights on”.
Daisy CloudBridge lets you build an infrastructure that’s minutely tailored to your business: critical workloads can be housed on dedicated hardware for maximum performance, while more standard workloads reside on shared resources. Best of all, it’s all easily adjustable as your needs change.
Keeping a competitive edge
Construction is one of the UK’s least digitised sectors, with huge benefits to be gained from cloud hosting, agile connectivity and mobile collaboration. Firms that seize the initiative now can gain a distinct advantage over competitors, plus built-in agility to help them stay ahead for the long term.
If legacy systems pose a problem, Daisy CloudBridge enables a smooth, flexible transition by combining public cloud services in a fully managed “hybrid” environment. You’ll also be able to roll out new technology at speed, turbo-charging your overall efficiency and reducing costs.
Our approach creates a network that expands and upgrades constantly as your needs change. Enhancements like SD-WAN allow you to monitor usage across different parts of your network, adjusting it where necessary to support business-critical apps and optimise usage costs.
At the same time, cloud connectivity from Daisy allows you to source vital software more reliably and efficiently from cloud-based providers (Software-as-a-Service), while our robust, reliable Internet solutions combine speed, quality and security to keep your business running smoothly.
A unified communications strategy that combines voice, video, chat and more allows your people and customers to connect and collaborate from anywhere, maximising mobility and creating a truly agile workflow that enables all functions within your business to understand each other and work well together. This can be overlaid with AI-driven process automation and seamless document sharing to greatly reduce unproductive downtime.
Thanks to the resulting clarity, your people are better placed to identify and implement potential improvements, including cost efficiencies. It also enables the use of transformative workforce management and scheduling apps.
