Since COVID-19 struck, GeoPal has been supporting the Construction & Utilities Industries to adjust to the rapidly changing environment through digital transformation. Both Industries have been moving quickly towards digitisation for the last number of years, with profound implications for the sector - post pandemic and beyond. A recent study carried out by IFS (Global software company) notes that 70% of companies have maintained or increased digital transformation spending during Covid-19. Moreover, research found that organisations concerned by economic disruption were 20% more likely to plan increased spending on digitization. The rapid transition to digital systems accelerated during Covid-19 will continue long into the recovery process, marking the future of the Construction and Utility industries alike.
The bridge between ‘survive’ and ‘thrive’ is dependent on an organisation’s ability to eliminate structures of ‘tribal knowledge’ - critical information held solely in the minds of staff and also embedded in the cultural traditions of these organisations. Digital technologies transform knowledge, experience and expertise into insights and standardized processes that can be enacted company-wide, harnessing knowledge and expertise for systematic and procedural usage, as well as significantly increasing knowledge retention.

There is no software coding required – GeoPal provides an easy to use online tool for creating mobile forms using a simple drag and drop interface. GeoPal offers a viable and cost effective solution to implement digital transformation in your organisation, guaranteeing;
