When it comes to the construction industry, technology has not been always embraced as well as in other industries. The simple reason being, the time taken in completion of a project.

When the project is initiated, there is one technology in place. It takes many months for the plans to be finalized, the details to be ironed out, etc. then comes the building part. The construction of a building alone takes years. So when the plan is initiated there is one technology in play and by the time the building is completed, there is a new set of technologies that have replaced the ones that were there in the beginning.

Digital Technology

Due to this constant change in technology and time-lapse in the project’s execution, this industry has always been slow to adopt any technology. Not to forget the contractors change too from time to time. so the team that works on one floor is not the same as the one that works on the next floor. This made it difficult to bring in any system to be adapted like in other industries.

The smartphone is one of the most used digital technology in this industry today and we can say with confidence that it is here to stay. There are a number of Apps one can download onto their phone and use it to their advantage in many instances.

There are woodwork calculators, measurement charts, and technical details etc, which are generally found in books, available now on your phones. On the tools front, regular saws and cutters are replaced with versatile wood cutting machine that are more precise in cutting. As a result, a lot of time is saved.

Here To Stay

The technological advancements have benefited this industry to a great extent and have made work completion faster. as the builders need not depend on contractors all the time, they are more open to using technology and finalizing many details inside the office itself. This positive reinforcement in this industry is here to stay!

The automotive industry is growing at a fast pace and the competition is not getting any lighter. To succeed in this field one needs to more than just up to date. There are skills and innovation required to stay on top of the game.

One can come across a number of such discussions and updates on 247Spares. If you are wondering what are skills required to succeed in this field, here they are:

Willingness To Adapt

It is easy to get set in one’s ways and refuse to change because we are just used to the way things are and there is not much point or benefit in changing. To become successful in this technology-driven world, an auto mechanic has to come to terms with the fact that his skills are being replaced with technology.

Even with technology in play, car owners will need mechanics to do things for them but it will not be in the traditional ways. Those who embrace this fact and start adapting to new technologies will see their customers’ inflow will either increase or at least stay steady, rather than dwindling.

Technical Knowledge

One may be required to attend various courses and get certified to offer certain services that are technology oriented. It is a known fact that to be an automotive service provider, one has to have the basic license and if you are going to serve one particular brand exclusively, you need to meet the criteria set by that manufacturer.

Similarly, one will have to undertake courses and get certified to be a mechanic who offers those specific services.

Motor Skills

Just because technology is taking over and everything is automated, does not negate the need for motor skills. One should still know how things have to be done manually for those times when technology fails. If the server is down or the vehicle is stuck in the middle of nowhere, one needs to know how to get the car running enough to get it back to the shop.
