Moving into the digital age has created efficiencies for most construction organizations. While it is definitely a boon to the overall industry, it can make it more difficult for individual organizations to find their own source of competitive advantage through efficiency. Scores of construction specific tools, software, and apps have flooded the market and it can be difficult to find what will truly give you the opportunity to differentiate yourself from the competition.
Instead of canvassing the entire construction technology landscape to search for the right product for your organization and talking to sales people – (who coincidently all seem to say that while their product isn’t a perfect fit for every organization, guess what, it is perfect for yours!) – it can be of great benefit to take a quick internal evaluation of what will help make your company more efficient. One of the areas where almost any organization can do a little self-audit and find improvement is within their preconstruction and bid management processes.
