Aiforsite’s mission is to solve the productivity problem of the construction industry. The growing technology company was established in Finland in 2016. The company has delivered its solutions to over 100 construction projects in Finland, Norway, Denmark, India, Malaysia, and now to the UK.

About the solution
The key goal of Aiforsite’s productivity management system is to increase the amount of uninterrupted direct work on the construction site. The solution makes the workflow waste visible and enables tracking of actual and planned progress in real-time. Automated data collection is the foundation of the system. Resource tracking is at the core while remote condition monitoring and video control complement the snapshot of the situation.
By improving the amount of direct work on construction sites, Aiforsite enables shortening the construction time of projects, reducing CO2 emissions during construction, and increasing the return on capital.
