SafeGuard is a software platform for the management and control of construction sites. SafeGuard eliminates the communication gap by enabling a direct data and information flow from the on-site worker to the off-site management team.
The SafeGuard platform is composed of three intertwined parts:
1. On-site—mobile applications and internet-enabled sensors that are used to collect data in the construction site
2. Cloud-based smart-system—an advanced system of algorithms that analyzes and creates actionable notifications based on the collected data
3. Performance management—an off-site system to inform management and enable intelligent decision making
To develop this expansive software platform, SafeGuard leveraged Progress® Rollbase®. Rollbase empowered Safeguard to speed up the development of the different applications that comprised the software platform, enabling the company to quickly move from proof of concept to commercialized applications. SafeGuard was able to extend these applications across all mobile channels with native functionality.
“Our applications are our DNA, so we wanted to make sure we were developing the solutions we originally envisioned,” said Izhak Paz, CEO and Owner, SafeGuard Applied Innovation. “Usually, to get that flexibility, you need to do a lot of heavy coding. Rollbase gave us the flexibility to create what we wanted with the added advantage of it being a low-code platform.”
