The Electrical Contractor and Smart Tech

It seems that electrical contractors are now using smart technology a recent survey revealed, which claimed that 83% of electricians now use it as part of their daily work.

Not only this, but one quarter of those taking part in the survey said they would be lost without their technology which includes, laptops, ipads and smartphones. These new results highlight the changes which have taken place in the electrical industry in recent years and now reflect technological advancements and improvements.

What’s also interesting is that this technology is not only being used for convenience, it’s being used to help electrical contractors carry out their work. Two thirds of those surveyed admitted to ordering products online, downloading technical specifications direct to their computers and using smart technology to look for technical advice.

However, they did reveal that the biggest issue is the rise in legislation and the problems they have trying to stay up to date all the time.

Also, the rise in technical products has meant electrical contractors have needed to work much harder to keep up to date with new technology and have found Apps, which can provide quick access to product information and information on how products can meet legislation guidelines, have helped combat this issue.

This survey reveals that although things have been challenging for electrical contractors with the recent changes and updates, they are working hard to stay abreast of these changes and remain current and competent in their trade.

It also reveals that the use of smart technology is helping contractors to do this and is now becoming an integrated part of the electrical industry.

    Circuit layout and testing can be done with specialized programs in your smart device. So make sure electricians have their access to all the smart devices.

    Many late adopters are being quickly outpaced by contractors who embrace new technology and software products; particularly in the area of electrical project management and field management solutions.

    It’s essential that qualified electricians use the latest technology that is available to them, otherwise how can they offer the best service possible to clients? A good electrican will also be aware of the latest legislation.
