What We Expect of
Now and in the Future
ANDPAD is an IT company that addresses issues affecting the building and construction industry, such as lack of workers and long working hours. We started off in April 2014 as a small company-just myself and an engineer with no previous experience in this industry.
We spent the first two years meeting as many people as we could who worked in building and construction. We wondered whether we could use our IT skills and experience to enable personnel on construction sites to work more creatively. It was this idea that led us to create the ANDPAD service in 2016.
And that same service—which nobody used at first-is now used by more than 100,000 people.
ANDPAD exists because of our desire to make construction workers’ lives better and commitment to our product. With no ability to make a difference and no understanding of the building industry, it would be impossible to win people’s trust amid an industry-wide digital shift. What’s more, technology capable of making construction workers’ lives better, and a commitment to our product, are also crucial factors in actually accomplishing the daunting challenge of digitalizing the building and construction industry.
The approach we aspire to is:
Corporate and progressive
as well as
Down-to-earth and straightforward
We’ll keep on working side-by-side as colleagues, dedicated to the challenge of resolving major issues within the building and construction industry.
MISSION STATEMENTOur mission,
Bring happiness to those who build happiness.
The building and construction industry enriches lives by constructing homes, public buildings, and communities. In a sense, it could be said to “build happiness.” We want to use the power of technology to support these people who build happiness. That’s what genuinely inspires us.
On construction sites the situation changes from day to day. It’s a race against time: designs and specifications change, leading to delays in documentation and the start of construction; there’s information to be shared via phone and fax; and people must travel to check on-site progress.
We create a little extra mental space within the frantic construction site environment. It allows personnel to strive for higher quality, hone their techniques, accumulate knowledge, and deepen their bonds with their colleagues and their families. They can praise each other’s work and do more work they themselves can be proud of.
However much technology may advance, building and construction are creative jobs carried out by human hands: that always has been and always will be the case. These are the hands that build happiness to make people happy.
We at ANDPAD facilitate that process.
We maintain professional attitudes and skills.
