DEWALT has announced the latest in jobsite connectivity with an unprecedented effort to make building more efficient through digital solutions. Over the coming months, DEWALT will launch a fully connected system, including WiFi mesh network and, later, an Internet of Things (IoT) platform, to enhance productivity, profitability, and safety on the jobsite.
Due to the increase in digital dependency in the construction field, there is an unmet need for reliable connectivity and asset management across the jobsite, according to DEWALT’s extensive research. Sharing data has become more necessary for contractors, yet limited connectivity options exist.
DEWALT’s patented WiFi mesh technology provides a key solution, with rugged access points built to withstand the harsh and variable conditions of construction jobsites. DEWALT WiFi enables contractors to collaborate in real time across large-scale jobsites and to easily access critical site information such as prints, schedules, budgets and RFIs.
The WiFi solution is the beginning and foundation of an entire end-to-end solution. DEWALT will also offer an IoT platform, enabling contractors to understand the location and utilization of assets and data onsite. As an initial offering, the DEWALT Tool Connect™ inventory management system is one component of total asset management. This will become part of the larger digital platform, providing critical data to inform decision-making.
Together, these solutions from DEWALT will connect the jobsite, allowing contractors to improve efficiency, profitability and safety through full connectivity, insights and asset optimization. DEWALT will soon be accepting pre-orders. Sign up to learn more at www.dewalt.com/jobsitewifi.
