Scout turned a tracking device into a personal identification badge with a Bluetooth element. The small Scout-powered ID badges were provided to all workers. This enabled automated timekeeping based on when workers entered the job site. Indoors the partner company installed Bluetooth beacons at each worksite location, and the Scout-powered ID badges automatically track and record which workers are at which location. Outdoors, the ID badges automatically switch to GPS tracking. The construction managers can create geo-fenced zones to determine which workers are in certain outdoor worksites.
The Scout-powered ID badges can detect if the wearer of the badge is using a piece of equipment with a Bluetooth chip. The device will then send an alert to the construction managers if the worker is not certified to be using that piece of equipment.
Productivity is also able to be tracked and compared against the budget, and labor resources are compared in real-time to expectations. The partner company is able to integrate AI-powered decision-making to optimize productivity. And the work environment is made safer by ensuring that workers are not in unsafe areas.
