Digital Construction Site Diary
Developed by Practitioners: Insite LMS

Documenting construction activities and creating daily logs can be quite simple. The digital construction site solution Insite LMS optimally supports site managers and project teams in creating and distributing digital construction diaries. Those who want to have more of their scarce time available for other things should therefore consider switching to a digital construction site diary: With Insite LMS, elements already existing in the system are used to automatically pre-populate the digital construction site diary. This saves time and reduces errors.

1. Document Construction Activities Via App

  • document site activities directly via app on smartphone, tablet a.s.o.
  • attach pictures, voice messages, text notes
  • centrally store information in Insite LMS

All significant issues can be documented directly where they occur. You simply grab your cell phone and launch the Insite LMS app. The app can be used, for example, to capture photos, voice notes and annotations. Data is stored centrally in Insite LMS, the proven cloud solution for digital construction site management. All the information can subsequently be used for digital site diaries, reports, project collaboration, project management and project documentation.


2. Generate Daily Log Within Seconds

  • generate report at the push of a button
  • clear, structured and consistent
  • automatic pre-filling & manual adjustments

With Insite LMS, construction site diaries can be generated at the end of the day at the push of a button. The reports are automatically pre-populated with all relevant information on deviations, material use, or construction progress a.s.o.

3. Distribute Construction Site Diary

  • real-time availability of reports and information
  • reliable communication & swift collaboration
  • high data security

Excellent internal communication: Daily logs and all information used for them are stored centrally in Insite LMS. Depending on internal processes and user privileges, digital reports can be made available to relevant stakeholders in real time.

Why use Insite LMS when creating daily logs?

  Analog construction diary Digital construction diary
Advantage Can be used without a software solution. All relevant project information at the push of a button in a professional construction diary - device-independent, digital, secure.
Effort Often time-consuming, low efficiency.
Merging distributed analog sources and digital information (e.g. images of digital cameras) is usually tedious and generates unnecessary multiple efforts.

Pre-filled reports are generated automatically without multiple efforts.
Quality Significant variations in quality A consistent high quality of daiyl logs is maintained: All relevant information is available centrally in the cloud and is automatically filled in the appropriate templates.
Data security Significant risk of data loss
Data is often available on paper (loose slips of paper), backup is difficult.
Strong data security due to cloud solution - servers in European data centers.

Why it pays to switch to a digital solution

It is not uncommon for the creation of the construction diary to be a rather unpleasant, but necessary activity. If you want to use your scarce time more wisely, you should consider switching to digital solutions.

The advantages are obvious:

  • During the day, data such as deviation documentation, material tracking and progress tracking are continuously stored in Insite LMS. This data acts as digital building blocks for reports.
  • With these building blocks, the digital entry into the site diary is automatically pre-filled.
  • The result: less time spent and less proneness to errors while maintaining high quality.

What information is recorded in the construction diary?

Examples of information included in the construction site diary (Daily Log):

  • Date
  • Object name
  • Weather conditions
  • Construction progress
  • Building incidents
  • Inspections/visits
  • Use of personnel
  • Orders
  • Use of materials
  • Material deliveries
  • Defects/Deviations
  • Facts about the construction site
  • Unclarities

Why use Insite LMS for Daily Logs?

Insite LMS is the all-in-one solution for the professional digital management of industrial construction sites. It allows all relevant processes to be documented and managed easily and securely. During the day, construction progress, deviations, material flow, and resource usage are documented directly on the construction site using a smartphone and stored in Insite LMS. Photos, comments and descriptions can be conveniently recorded during walk-throughs using the Insite LMS app on your cellular phone. Data is stored centrally in the system (cloud). Without any additional effort, daily logs can be generated at the end of working days. Report are automatically pre-filled with all relevant information and contain the corresponding photos, deviations and construction site details. Manual adjustments are also possible. Daily logs and other reports may also be formatted professionally in the customer's corporate design.
