Technology is at the heart of Glenman. Management commitment, well-defined processes, continuous training and investment in infrastructure are some of the enablers for effective use of technology at Glenman. We believe that technology when used effectively, can achieve significant results including cost savings, reduction of waste, more productivity, transparency and better flow of info rmation.
Our plan is to combine traditional, hands-on approach to construction with the latest technological advancements. An integral and key component of the company's progressive business philosophy is accurate compilation and sharing of documentation. We soon plan on implementing a web-enabled communication platform and shared access to administrative project reporting systems.
Our comprehensive product documentation that is managed by a single, accessible, organized system helps us achieve high quality, control costs and optimize efficiency, especially when work is outsourced.
