Closing Out 2020: Year in Review

Posted on

2020 was a year unlike any other. Through the ups and downs of navigating a global pandemic, the construction industry showed a whole new level of resiliency. While it certainly hasn’t been easy, we commend all the companies who came together to pivot and adapt to what quickly became “the new normal”.

Reflecting on the past year, we’re grateful that we could continue to support you and uphold our commitment of helping you be more efficient and productive—no matter the circumstances.

Here’s a look back at some of the 2020 numbers we’re most proud of:2020 highlight stats

4 new releases

Equipment logs

Because keeping track of your equipment should be easy. With this feature, you gain more visibility into where equipment is—and how much it’s being used. That means less (unnecessary) rental expenses and potential contract disputes.

COVID-19 safety materials

The pandemic made safety even more of a priority in construction. To help with new safety guidelines and protocols, we added COVID-19 toolbox talks and daily survey questions.


Collaboration is key—and our release of Segmented Daily Reports made it easier for your teams to communicate. By setting up custom segments for your projects, you can break out your daily reports by supervisor, shift, location, and more, and monitor progress even faster.


Digital documentation is critical, especially when faced with social distancing requirements. We took checklists online and added customizable templates so you can ensure everyone’s staying safe on the jobsite.
