Building the Future: How Digital Workers Aid the Construction Sector


The Next Phase of Automating Construction

Automation is a longtime friend of the construction sector. Without it, your teams would still be manually digging and mixing concrete. It’s changed the way we work, making building projects faster and easier. Now, we’re looking at a new kind of automation. This one makes the office work and dealing with customers smoother and more efficient.

At Centelli, we’re experts in using the latest and most advanced automation. We’ve created a handy guide for you to understand automation in the construction industry fully. You can read it HERE for all the details, or if you’re in a hurry, just check out the highlights below!

Automation In Construction Guide

Tasks Your Team Would Rather Skip:

Across the sector, workers are still stuck doing manual tasks. These aren’t just at the construction site, but back in the office. These tasks include processing invoices, onboarding employees, and balancing accounts. These tasks are not only inefficient but also repetitive and unfulfilling for employees. Thankfully, they can be easily and efficiently automated.

Centelli’s Innovative Automation: Digital Workers

At Centelli, we provide Digital Workers who undergo training, just like any new staff member, to get these jobs done fast, affordably, and without mistakes.

While a Digital Worker can handle a wide range of tasks, they are particularly effective when it comes to repetitive manual processes. The jobs your existing staff wish they could skip! We often ask our customers, “In an ideal world, what tasks would your employees avoid doing?” Once we know which tasks are the real headaches, we get our Digital Workers up to speed to tackle them.

A Digital Worker can be trained to perform any task quickly and accurately. Additionally, it knows how to seek human input when it encounters anomalies.

Here are some of the processes Digital Workers can take on:

  • Subcontractor onboarding and offboarding: Our Digital Workers make working with subcontractors easy, saving you time and keeping projects on track.
  • VAT and CIS processing: Digital Workers ensure timely, error-free submissions of your bothersome tax processes, freeing up your team to focus on exceptions and use their skills in more valuable ways.
  • Invoice creation: Issuing and paying invoices on time is a painful but unavoidable task. With Digital Workers, you ensure your cash flow is smooth, your bank sheets are accurate, and, just as importantly, your time is free.
  • And so much more!
  • Why Now Is the Time to Embrace Automation?

    Automation is advancing quickly, and it’s picking up speed! According to a recent report by Deloitte, 53% of businesses have already embarked on their Robotic Process Automation (RPA) journey, a number expected to rise to 72% in the next two years. The construction industry is right there in the mix, with many firms already integrating Digital Workers in their back-office functions to boost efficiency and get ahead in the market.

    Implementing Digital Workers

    Digital Workers come with many negative assumptions, but they are much easier to implement than one might expect!

    Any CIO will want to know what infrastructural management will be needed from their IT department. Luckily, Digital Workers are very light on demands. They operate primarily on Virtual Machines (aka “Virtual Laptops”), and the unique IT requirements pretty much end there. Otherwise, their logistical needs are no more complicated than a human employee’s. In fact, we’ve implemented many Digital Workers who now manage the whole company’s system access, freeing up loads of time for the IT team!

    These Digital Workers work like a human using a computer, even imitating mouse clicks and typing on a keyboard. This means you don’t need to change any of your existing software, technology stack, and ERP systems. In fact, they can be great at bridging the gaps between different tools or systems. For instance, if you use separate HR or Payroll systems, a Digital Worker can be trained to transfer data between them on a daily, weekly, or even hourly basis.

    Here’s the most exciting part: you can have a Digital Worker ready in just a few weeks, with very little initial investment.

    How Digital Workers Help YOU

    Using Digital Workers in your construction firm offers a host of benefits:

  • Enhanced Productivity: Digital Workers operate swiftly, providing immediate and accurate data for informed decision-making.
  • Higher Employee Satisfaction & Engagement: Allowing employees to concentrate on more meaningful activities by eliminating tedious tasks makes their jobs more fulfilling and appealing, a key advantage in a competitive job market.
  • Improved Customer Experience: Increased efficiency and fewer mistakes mean more content customers and higher profits.
  • And many more!
  • To Explore Further:

    Using smart automation is a big chance for all construction companies. Digital Workers can save you money and offer lots of other benefits, all while using your current systems or equipment.
