Aug 2, 2021 - 3:00 PM (ET) - Online
Hosted by CFMA

About this Event

Extreme process inefficiency and lack of automation is pronounced in the heavy/civil construction marketplace. Heavy/Highway contractors generally do well with automating their take-off and estimating functions up through bidding. However, after that, automation is not well utilized. This webinar will look at the results of a survey conducted within the industry that addressed applications being used for trucking, dispatching, fuel mgt., equipment management, scale ticketing, and inventory control. The survey was offered to contractors and material producers around the US and Canada. This webinar, presented by the survey’s authors will provide a clear and objective look at the state of the heavy civil construction industry in terms of automation; and recent trends in the industry.
