The need to solve the industry’s inefficiencies and labour shortages has forced the industry to change the status quo. While many promises of the future have been untested, some new and innovative approaches are available today without much risk to your business.
In spring of 2018 PlanGrid conducted research amongst construction professionals and decision makers about technology, mobile collaboration, and utilizing data on construction projects. Our presentation will share insights into why and how construction firms invest in and adopt technology and software, the underlying causes for why teams remain disconnected, how people are truly spending their time, and the implications for project performance and delivery. For general contractors, subcontractors and owners looking to complete jobs more efficiently, we’ll highlight how to overcome the biggest barriers to effective technology adoption.
We will explore, in greater detail:
- The top three problems contractors are looking to fix with software, and the fundamental causes behind them.
- A breakdown of exactly how different roles are spending their time — and the costs on rework, schedule and performance.
- A hard look at mobile deployment vs. actual adoption of mobile across teams.
