With the super-fast and efficient workflow of HoloBuilder's mobile JobWalk App, every construction team can create a digital replica of their project, covering all phases of the building lifecycle and saving 80%+ documentation time.

"As a future-oriented, innovative company, we have to reinvent ourselves continuously, constantly optimize our processes and digitize our business.

I am convinced that we will benefit greatly from HoloBuilder's expertise and unique portfolio of solutions. We are looking forward to deploying the HoloBuilder solutions internationally," says Thomas Birr, Head of Strategy and Innovation at E.ON.
