Construction Technology: Is Your Business Lagging Behind?

Jason Hook

Technology has always driven innovations in the construction industry, and this is as true on the job site as it is in the office. Just as the latest and greatest equipment and tools will help your business to earn a reputation for quality and precision, new technologies like health and safety software will help your business to be more productive and efficient. 

How do you know if your business is lagging behind because of outdated construction technology?


Do you overlook IT?

According to a 2016 survey by JBKnowledge, there was hardly any increase in the number of people working in IT jobs in the construction industry between 2015 and 2016. Larger construction companies usually have dedicated IT departments staffed with IT-specific employees. But even if you don’t have IT specialists on your payroll, you may want to re-evaluate how much you allocate to IT in your budget. With the incredible construction software and apps available today, your efficiency may improve markedly with a little more attention to information technology.


Are you using the cloud?

Construction and building workers are rarely to be found sitting behind desks. That’s why it’s so important that everyone can stay connected from different locations.

By storing important documents and information in the cloud, your employees can always have what they need at their fingertips. For example, you could store in the cloud invitations to tender, field data collection, safety management, project scheduling, and estimating. With all of this information available to key employees at all times, your workers can make better decisions and have all the information they need to get their work done.


Have you incorporated any of the new mobile trends into your business?

More and more, employees are using their own mobile devices for work, but that doesn’t mean you can’t encourage the use of specific mobile technologies and apps for your business.

In fact, developers are creating some pretty incredible mobile technologies that can help your workers to be more productive and stay in touch with each other. For example, wearable devices are helping workers to be safer and have the information they need with them at all times.

Polished, professional and accurate estimates help you to line up a full schedule of quality jobs.
