Are you experiencing staffing challenges? 

You’re not alone. 

Although the need for new buildings — such as residential homes, master-planned communities, commercial, public, and institutional buildings — has skyrocketed, homebuilders and land developers are severely understaffed. Almost every homebuilder, land developer, and contractor is desperately seeking to fill positions. In addition to other factors like rising fuel prices and supply chain issues, the labor crisis is causing a significant impact on the industry. 

While it may feel like these factors are out of your control and there is nothing you can do, now is the perfect time to find ways to improve your processes and maximize the efficiency of your time, budgets, and employees. 

We're here to help. Designed for developers and home builders, TraceAir is the best way to streamline workflows and save time during site work. The data and tools provided by TraceAir save hours, even weeks, on some key tasks. TraceAir enables you to do more with less, here's how:

1. Maximize Productivity

Spreading your team too thin is a recipe for disaster. Instead, TraceAir allows users to make the most of their time. Tasks like conducting measurements, planning and sequencing, verifying lot grades, and progress tracking would typically take several hours if not days to be complete, require site visits, and rely on data from a surveyor. With TraceAir users can obtain the data needed to complete these tasks with just a few clicks.

We don’t always have to go out to the project site, have the surveyor measure something, and then wait a week to get the results. We can use TraceAir to measure much faster. With multiple projects going on this has been very helpful.”

Additionally, the data from TraceAir helps users identify potential issues in advance, helping avoid them altogether. In the event of an issue, TraceAir's visual record helps resolve disputes fast. Less time spent obtaining data and dealing with disputes not only equates to increased productivity, but also less stress.

2. Empowered with Data

Home builders and land developers can spend days obtaining measurements and data to make decisions. During this time, major delays can occur.

The data you receive from TraceAir is fast, affordable, and reliable. We provide unlimited licenses so that everyone from stakeholders to contractors can use the data to make better decisions. You will be able to track site balance, check elevations and grades, measure stockpiles, overlay design documentation, check progress, and more with just a few clicks. Best of all, you can trust this data is accurate within 1/10th of a foot. Having one source of data accessible to everyone drastically reduces the risk of mistakes.

When we started to use TraceAir and realized how user-friendly and accurate it was, we relied on it a lot more and benefited from it significantly. Unlike other software in the industry, TraceAir puts data analytics in the hands of field managers. So, now we do many tasks that were previously done at the office, including measurements.”

3. No Time for Downtime

Do you have time to train your team on how to use new software right now? We didn't think so. Unlike other site work management platforms that require long and complicated startups, TraceAir is completely turnkey. The entire project team, including the least tech-savvy, will be able to use TraceAir with very little training. No downloads are needed, TraceAir works from the internet browser on your computer, tablet, or mobile device.

All the people I work with on my jobs, whether they're moving dirt or creating spreadsheets, absolutely love it. TraceAir's site management and analytics platform elevates the communication and collaboration with everyone involved in the project, from investors and owners to contractors and engineers. The more communication you have on a project, the smoother the project will go.”

4. Reduced Travel Time and Expenses

Many land development professionals are responsible for multiple project sites across large geographic areas, spending countless hours a day on the road. Without being on-site each day, decisions are delayed, issues are not identified early, and it negatively affects the project schedule. Accessible from any location, TraceAir enables users to check progress and make decisions from anywhere. Time saved from travel can now be used for more productive tasks.

Using TraceAir reduces our travel costs significantly and allows me to be more strategic with my time. It gives us visibility into how our projects are progressing, so we can spend less time on routine site inspections and more time focusing on helping our builders solve problems."
