Why you shouldn’t hire a construction company until they start using construction management software
It’s well known within the construction industry that builders are often slow to adapt to new technology. However, investing in new technology is essential for any construction team that wants to expand its business and boost credibility.
Here’s why construction owners need to make sure the construction company they trust uses construction management technology.
- It streamlines your communication.
Communication is key when building a 50,000-square-foot structure. One double entry could cost thousands. And, a construction owner should be able to see how a project is coming along without constantly making the drive to the site.
At Compass Group, we use Procore to manage our construction projects. By choosing to use construction management technology, we know our whole team is working from the most up-to-date information. We’re able to avoid double entries when reviewing data, and teams in the office and build site are able to communicate with each other.
- You complete more construction projects on time.
According to the 2015 Global Construction Survey, just 25% of projects came within 10% of their original deadlines between 2012-2015. With construction management technology, you can identify the slowdown in workflows. By having the ability to input hours on the field, the office can immediately track and analyze the data.
Since Compass Group began using construction management software, we have seen increased efficiency in completing projects on time and save thousands of dollars a year by not having to print plans. On-time completion leads to more trust between the owner and the general contractor because every construction owner’s dream is to have every job completed on time and on budget.
- It increases productivity.
You can easily use construction monitoring software to improve field productivity. Generally, construction software has an app you can use on the field. Pen and paper spreadsheets can take hours and won’t alert you of any mistakes. Automating the reporting process and storing data in one database saves your construction superintendents a lot of time. Data entry shouldn’t be what holds you back from completing a job in a timely and budget-friendly manner.
