Archdesk is a construction management platform that gives complete control over projects, finances and processes. It weaves a golden thread of data through each business and its projects and supply chain. It’s perfect for the entire construction lifecycle, from planning to construction to operating.  Archdesk adapts to the company's processes.  Instead of forcing them to change how they work, it takes their workflows and digitises them - automating, optimising and cutting the rest.  A construction firm's knowledge is what makes them different. It’s the edge needed to beat competitors and get the job done. Archdesk amplifies that know-how.  On the front end, all the project financials and details are shown on easy-to-read dashboards in real time. It’s data you can trust to guide your decisions.

Smaller contractors might not need this level of implementation as they don’t have the processes in place. As they scale, they want affordable tech that scales with them while helping put processes in place.  Archdesk just launched Archdesk Essentials for smaller contractors looking for a lower cost of entry to digital technology. It’s a turnkey solution that gets them up and running fast at an affordable price. Archdesk is construction management software.

measurable.energy are a UK based startup with a bold mission to eliminate all energy waste from the built environment, starting with Small Power.  Small Power often exceeds 40% of total electricity usage in commercial and office buildings. Up to half of that is from powering devices whilst they’re not in use which results in unnecessary GHG emissions and costs. Which is why measurable.energy have created a solution that automatically identifies, measures and eliminates Small Power waste.  measurable.energy achieve this by combining their unique smart sockets with machine learning and software.  This allows measurable.energy to automatically identify devices plugged into the sockets, monitor their energy use, report granular real-time data and turn individual or groups of devices on/off to prevent energy waste.  In addition, the sockets use light to indicate the live carbon intensity of the National Grid.  This drives impactful behavioural change as occupants opt to wait for ‘greener’ energy supply.  We can no longer afford to waste energy due to the energy and climate crises.  Make your Net Zero plans measurable, thus actionable!

 TimeKeeper is the simple time and attendance system for small businesses, built to suit industries where workers are often remote, travel between multiple sites or work from temporary locations.  Employees can clock in and out via mobile or tablet with GPS stamping, track time against jobs, request holidays and view their timesheet whenever they need. Never worry again about calculating how many hours an employee has worked, how long each employee is spending on a job, how much overtime they are due or how much leave they have remaining.  Dedicated job reports allow you to see how much of your labour budget is being used across your various clients’ jobs so you can keep a close eye on your margins, and employees can add important notes, photos or signatures to a job straight from the app.  The TimeKeeper app utilises modern facial recognition software to protect against buddy clock ins, and utilises GPS geofences to ensure employees are on site when they clock in.
