In the world of automation where companies are moving beyond the conventional paradigms to adopt strategies for a completely paperless approach, the challenge lies in determining the right technology and application. But the construction industry, being slow to adapt to the new technology trend and approaches, struggles to cut down on overhead, gain better control over job costs, and drive the innovation. As the industry is majorly dominated by the field operations, many construction firms encounter hardships while capturing, consolidating, and sharing isolated and scattered data. By combining the benefits of SaaS and mobile technology into their Uni-engine platform dashboarding capabilities, DXI Solution steps in to bridge this gap in the construction arena. The firm’s solution platform allows effective field data integration and helps gain control over project status, objectives, and milestone.
The company helps construction firms and field engineers by providing business analytics solutions that capture accurate information and report back in a single interactive display. “We are known for delivering innovative yet efficient solutions to create more productive business operations for owners and contractors,” states Jianfei Xu, CEO, DXI Solutions. DXI’s business analytics solution is based on a web based open architecture platform and is available on desktop and mobile devices. The offering helps users easily access and leverage data from anywhere at any time. To eliminate the hassle of manually capturing vast amount of field data on Excel spreadsheet, the firm offers DXI’s Field Data Capture solution that automates the real-time labor, equipment, materials, and contractor information tracking system. Thus working as a direct link between remote job sites and the office, the Field Data Capture solution allows users to capture, analyze, and monitor data in a cost-effective manner.
“Construction management is a multi-layered process, where every year millions of invoices are being exchanged between owners and contractors during the entire project lifecycle.

Very often these invoices get stuck at different stages of approval and make the payment process slow and inefficient,” says Xu. DXI’s Reverse Invoicing solution remediates this issue by allowing field managers to review transactions on daily or weekly basis and helping owners control their invoice approval system. “Our Reverse Invoicing solution gives construction owners the control to highlight and remove disputed items as well as the ability to map work breakdown structure,” says Xu. To further simplify the process of data capturing and payment, DXI has developed two more solutions, xSite and iSite. The xSite helps contractors to track labor, equipment, and materials information and deliver them for third party billing. xSite also feeds payroll for processing and captures all your job costing needs in one single source solution. While iSite plays an important role in helping owners verify the cost entered by contractors. This way, the payment process gets streamlined and contractors can be paid faster and more accurately.
Over the years, DXI has helped several oil and gas, pipelines, mining, power generation, and refining companies to streamline their large scale projects. For instance, one of DXI’s Canadian customers wanted help in field data capturing across their two division of pipeline construction project. They also required a web solution that allowed direct access to the contractor data and payment invoicing. After implementing DXI’s open architecture system, the company had a clear view of the entire project. Further, their contractors and sub-contractors were able to know the time whenever their data were sent and approved.
With a firm commitment to constant innovation, DXI envisions developing their platform and solutions to help contractors and owners streamline their working procedures in the coming years.
