In order to convince those who hesitate using the new technology, the innovations, which can be done with new technology should be shown such as use of camera, GPS mechanism and emergency notifications.

In Lloyd's Construction, the new system’s compatibility was checked before being applied. Employees incur problems in using push-talk-phone which were purchased to replace the radio.

Those employees can share the reports through Internet, thus saving the cost of building rental as well as electricity.
