Construction sites all over the world rely on hoist lifts for transporting material and workers at the job site. Despite being such an integral part of construction projects, there is currently no tool to track the use of this critical and highly necessary piece of equipment at the construction site. The purpose of this project is to design a systemthat would enable the managers and employees of construction companies to efficiently track and manage the hoist lifts at their sites.

Efficient tracking and management of the lifts would result in savings of cost, time, and energy for the construction companies. Such improvements would also help boost worker morale, which would consequently boost productivity.

Over the course of this project the team has designed an interactive yet intuitive software application that helps effectively track and manage hoist lifts on construction sites.
