Benchmarking has long been an important tool for any business looking to improve their overall performance. The process itself involves measurement and comparison to certain standards with the goal of supporting systematic improvements in productivity.
AN INTRODUCTION TO BIG DATA IN CONSTRUCTION – WHAT CAN WE EXPECT?
It’s no secret that data is transforming business. Big data is a term that we hear a lot about, and new and innovative uses of data are cropping up every day in every industry. It reflects the massive growth in the quantity of available and relevant data in society, industry and business, and how data can improve decision making.
At Rhumbix we are building a Workforce Telematics platform for the construction industry. A quick Google search suggests that there isn’t much out there to describe what Workforce Telematics is, or what it can be, so in this summary I’ll attempt to do just that.

Construction lags behind most sectors when it comes to information technology spending. But changing from manual, paper-based processes to digitization isn’t as simple as flipping a switch — how do we move away from legacy systems and determine a clear return on investment?
Rhumbix is based in San Francisco, where it seems that every neighborhood is dotted with cranes or scaffolding. For most people, a successful construction project is simply one that is completed. They consider construction a nuisance because it slows traffic or is a loud distraction outside their window and are therefore relieved when the project is complete and life returns to normal. But in reality, there is so much more that goes into creating and delivering successful projects.
Our #meetrhumbix interview this week is with Erik Herschend, Creative Director. Check out what he has to say about the iterative design process involved in building tech for construction.
Our #meetrhumbix series continues this week with Forest Peterson, whose lengthy background in construction gives him incredible perspective on the worker experience.
We’re continuing our #meetrhumbix series today sharing an interview with Jon Goncalves. Jon has been a member of our engineering team since the early days and shares some fun memories of our very first prototype.
To kick off the New Year, we are starting a series called #meetrhumbix to introduce you to the amazing individuals that are part of our team. This week’s interview is with Michael Myers our Data Scientist. Read on to find out how Michael transitioned from academia to construction.
