Digital methods boost business
Data from construction management software specialist Procore says that almost half (49 per cent) of construction managers have seen overall efficiency and productivity rise thanks to digital tools such as real-time insights, modelling and analytics.
However, the research also shoed that nearly two thirds (64 per cent) still relied on outdated manual tools like spreadsheets to measure performance.
Brandon Oliveri-O’Connor, Senior Director of EMEA at Procore, said to Construction Enquirer, ““After a challenging year, it’s encouraging to see the transformational impact which the ability to access and use insights in real-time is having on the construction sector already, with many being able to boost efficiency and bolster bottom lines.
“As an industry, we must look beyond manual tools and seek smarter construction-specific solutions which not only allow on-demand and real-time access to insights, but the ability to analyse and draw conclusions from it.”
