Today, Kwant, the New York-based software company that’s accelerating the construction industry through ai-powered predictive analytics and smart wearables, announces its product expansion. The expansion aligns with the mission and vision to provide digital transparency for every construction jobsite - connecting each data node which includes the workforce, materials, and equipment, to improve safety and productivity.
In addition, Kwant launches a vibrant, fresh new look for their website, platform, and apps, aligning with the mission to be the world's first connected ai-based platform for construction.
As construction projects become more challenging, riskier with budget constraints, and a lack of a skilled workforce, the need for fully connected jobsites and data-driven decisions becomes critical. Kwant solves the complex challenges within construction jobsite operations - connecting every workforce, forklift, crane, every sheet of drywall, and each ton of steel to a centralized platform. Finally, decision-makers can take proactive actions to improve safety and productivity on and off a jobsite, collecting and leveraging millions of data points in milliseconds.
The ai-powered technology behind Kwant is built to save lives and currently connects more than 50,000 workforces for large-scale projects within construction, manufacturing, affordable housing, and infrastructure sites. Kwant has already been deployed across multiple large-scale projects and proven success with industry leaders such as DPR Construction, Delta, Alberici, McCarthy, Delta, Fairstead, and Walbridge.
The expansion includes features such as Lean Construction-based waste reduction methods through tracking, optimization of high-value equipment, and assets with powerful, plug-n-play sensors and predictive analytics. The rugged asset trackers by Kwant allows construction decision-makers to understand end-to-end supply chain management for schedule optimization, detect discrepancies, analyze production rates, catch downtime or equipment underutilization, and provide shipment notifications. Kwant recently launched the ‘Need More’ feature within their app to specifically address jobsite waste and reduce workforce or delivery downtime by sharing materials like concrete throughout different locations of a jobsite or sharing extra workforce.
“Kwant provides a centralized database for workforces, materials, and equipment where General Contractors and Trade Partners can have seamless onboarding, verify certifications, align with compliances, and view past and current projects,” says Niran Shrestha, Co-founder and CEO of Kwant. Having this feature saves hours of duplicate effort to onboard the workforce for each jobsite. Kwant smart wearables now also supports access control for gating high-risk zones, providing alerts when there is a potential collision between a vehicle and worker. The environmental edge sensors from Kwant collect environmental data like temperature, humidity, and carbon monoxide in the jobsite, sending an alert when temperatures cross a threshold in a work zone. The edge sensors enable a healthy and safe work environment. In case of flooding or hazardous air quality, Safety Managers can also notify the workforce to evacuate specific work zones and prevent material loss while saving lives.
“Safety features for worker safety is a huge plus on large projects where manpower is spread all throughout the property!
- Project Manager, Fairstead
"Putting new technology in the hands of the owner and GC that help better manage jobsites. Powerful platform with lots of potentials that could change the way we see construction."
- Project Leader, LCOR Construction
