This paper studies the added values, both qualitative and quantitative that can be gained by using mobile devices at a construction industry. Some pilots have already been made in the Finnish construction industry that involves the usage of mobile devices. The problem is still to locate the “bottlenecks” that the construction industry has and find a suitable mobile solution that could help in the problem. Here we will report the findings from an interview study done with different companies, involved in either information technology or in construction industry. The main objects of the interviews were to find out the users’ and service providers’ view of the problems, expectations and future hopes.
