The last decade has seen the rise of the mobile workforce across a large number of industries in Australia, especially in traffic management and construction. With this increase in remote work, comes a whole new set of challenges in managing workers and resources.
Thanks to technology we've been able to better manage some of these challenges and improve the way we communicate. Technology has brought about improved transparency, streamlined processes, and made it much easier to be compliant - but only if you use it.
