Over 1,000 construction industry professionals completed the 2014 Construction Technology Survey. The newly released 3rd Annual Construction Technology Report reveals the results. The CT Report is powered by JBKnowledge in partnership with the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) and Texas A&M University’s Construction Science Department. The report provides valuable insight into the technology tools, trends and strategies of the building professionals who completed our research survey.
Participants in the survey gave insight about their company’s information technology staffing, budgeting, outsourcing, research & development, and cloud solutions used for construction. A growing interest in mobile technology can be seen, but there is little integration with desktop strategies. A lack of security policies for personal devices in the workplace, as well as an absence of technology providers offering mobile capabilities for their construction solutions, is also highlighted in the report.
The #ConstructionTechReport shows that builders implement software least often for subcontractor prequalification and to maintain client relationships. The use of spreadsheets is once again expressed as a tool used for core project functions. For the third year in a row this continues to be a major concern and we question when builders will adopt better data storage and transfer solutions.
These issues, along with other valuable tips and information regarding technology usage, adoption and implementation in the construction industry, can be read about in detail in this year’s #ConstructionTechReport. Take the opportunity to get ahead of the competition and stay up to date on how to succeed in a building industry that is rapidly changing.
