As more technology tools hit the market, it can be overwhelming to cut through the clutter and invest in a solution that adds value without adding unnecessary technical complexity or burden. How can contractors identify and implement solutions that work across different project sites? Attendees will learn the top solutions, strategies and best practices for maximizing construction’s digital transformation.
The majority of construction projects finish late and over budget. Can drones help project managers and site superintendents keep projects on schedule? You'll learn how the latest drone hardware and software can be used to survey sites, monitor progress, manage subcontractors and streamline communications—ultimately keeping projects running on budget and schedule.
Find out exactly how a platform will help you run your company, learn how the technology works, and see what the future of construction looks like when you can connect all your people, devices, and software. Viewers will gain insight into the benefits of a platform approach, how to remove friction on your projects, and the value of having all your data in one place.
Investing in the right software infrastructure model to improve workflows, outdated processes and reporting can pay huge dividends. But what’s the best software platform model for ensuring that estimating, operations and accounting/ERP systems work together? This roundtable will debate prevailing approaches, including accounting-led back office vs. integrated field-centric models, and more.
