Veryfi, mobile software automation provider, today announced its partnership with Sonim Technologies to digitize manual business processes and improve productivity in the construction industry.

Veryfi’s smart automation mobile software is now available on Sonim’s family of ultra-rugged smartphones to help drive a much needed and overdue productivity boost for those working in the field. Since graduating from YCombinator in early 2017, Veryfi has built out its mobile automation platform for field teams that digitizes and automates many facets of the day-to-day activities on project sites including data-entry, timekeeping, communication and reporting.

“According to McKinsey & Co., the construction industry is the second least digitized industry. This poses a serious challenge, especially for those working in the field who are responsible for managing issues onsite while keeping up with daily operations in real-time,” said Ernest Semerda, cofounder at Veryfi. “Our solution coupled with Sonim’s ultra-rugged smartphones brings the office to the palm of your hand while withstanding the toughest work environments.”

Sonim’s family of ultra-rugged devices include the recently launched XP8 and XP5 Android smartphones, which are industrial- and military-grade devices built to work in extreme conditions and environments, while integrating critical business functionality. Both devices come with an industry-leading comprehensive three-year warranty, and include the SCOUT Enterprise Xperience, allowing businesses to more efficiently manage and control communications.

The benefits of automation are monumental. In 2018, Veryfi customers realized;

  • Three hours per week per employee savings.
  • A 30 percent boost in employee morale from reduction in tedious after-hours data-entry.
  • Improved management controls over costs, time, job costing and real-time 24×7 transparency on complex projects.

“The construction industry definitely puts any device to the ultimate test in the field,” said Sonim CEO Bob Plaschke. “That’s why we developed our XP product family to meet the toughest specifications while integrating with any Android-based business applications. We’re excited to see how Veryfi’s customers will benefit from this new solution.”
