Tight deadlines and fast-paced projects rule the day in the construction industry. When building a business in that landscape, the presence of organizational silos creates hurdles for efficient collaborations and, in turn, is detrimental to productivity, which can lead to a business’s downfall.
Fonn, with its unified construction management software solution, is well-positioned to help construction professionals maximize productivity with comprehensive dashboards that display all relevant project data — consolidated and organized in one location.
Fonn is ideal for a wide range of construction projects. Builders and workers can store important documents, communicate in real-time, and track projects off-site on a single platform. The information stored on the platform can be categorized and coded as per the client’s preference, making it a transparent application. The site-management tool’s ease of navigation and capabilities makes communication between all parties seamless, and allows all users to upload on-site drawings, pictures, and spreadsheets in real-time. Fonn offers other valuable features, including change requests, site registrations, warranty claims, and RFIs (request for information). Moreover, clients can also implement budget changes and carry out QA inspections.
One of the platform’s key features is its ease of use during projects. It allows everyone involved in the project to use the technology in unison, thereby eliminating the possibility of delays, errors, and miscommunication.
Since construction projects require professionals from numerous disciplines, such as architects, engineers, consultants, and construction managers, open communication channels are critical for sharing data. If issues arise on-site, they may be reported using the Fonn app, which includes both images and text, allowing for quick allocation of a problem to the appropriate party. Fonn also has excellent reporting features that allow instant messaging amongst all users, reducing the risk of miscommunication and long communication trails that can get lost across different platforms. Fonn has set its focus on security, storage of data, and data backup to prevent data leaks. “With the help of Microsoft architects, we designed the platform in a safe and structured manner,” says Jan Tore Grindheim, CEO and Founder of the company. In addition, the company has a team of white hat hackers who regularly conduct penetration tests.

A client case study that best describes the competence of Fonn’s construction management tool is its interaction with Econekt — a market leader in self-build. To ensure seamless collaboration between all stakeholders on a construction project, Econekt has been using Fonn’s site-management tool. It supports Econekt’s innovative and forward-thinking way of construction by being easily- customizable and user-friendly. The continual stream of information available to users has significantly reduced on-site risks. Since its partnership with Fonn, Econekt’s project success rate and productivity levels have substantially improved.
Fonn is the first PM tool in construction to predict project outcome in real-time and advice to project managers about their ongoing projects. With its easily customizable site-management tool, Fonn has a strong footprint in Scandinavia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, as its universal system can be adapted to any market.
