Viewpoint Construction Software produced a 2014 technology survey that was sent to Onsite Magazine Subscribers, Construction Business Owner Magazine Subscribers, and members of the Associated Builders and Contractors in June.
Compiled by Viewpoint Construction Software, the Construction Technology Survey is designed to provide construction firms with valuable information regarding the uses of various types of technology available today. Our goal is to share the responses of contractors across North America regarding the technology they want and use. We offer the survey results as a valuable tool for companies reviewing technology tools or considering new options.
» 250 construction contractors participated in the survey across North America.
» Over 50% of the responders noted their role as Principle or Executive.
» Over 38% of the responders noted that they engage mostly in commercial/industrial work
Here are some highlights from the survey:
- Over 50% of respondents said that they will be investing in technology in 2014.
- Over 80% of respondents suggested that they use 3 or more technology applications to effectively perform job related tasks on a daily basis.
- 82% of respondents are currently taking advantage of mobile technology to perform job related tasks.
- Over 50% of the respondents stated they are NOT currently using BIM technology.
Corinne Lynds, editor of Onsite Magazine sat down with two Viewpoint Canadian customers to discuss their reaction to the survey results and how they are leveraging specific technology applications to achieve operational excellence.
