A recent wave of construction technologists and a fresh generation of construction professionals have injected an enthusiasm for technology into an industry that’s otherwise known to be slow at adopting it.
Exciting tools like drones, augmented reality, and the all-connected internet of things (IoT) are emerging into clear, real-world applications that can make construction smarter.
Meanwhile, the ranks of skilled labor and profit margins have been thin. In this way, today’s emerging technology and the needs of contractors are well-aligned, and the need for construction companies to catch up may even increase the pressure to adopt the latest and greatest technology.
Yet even with all of this excitement, it’s as important as ever to first lay the groundwork for an IT strategy that is designed specifically for your construction company. This custom approach is to ensure technology is taking your whole company in a single direction with greater productivity, profitability, and security.
