• When construction companies experience growth, there is a need to streamline business processes, boost efficiency, and make the most of their administrative time. Though the construction industry has significantly ramped up its adoption of new technologies in recent years, there are still some growing pains and learning curves when it comes to pulling the trigger on software. Furthermore, smaller construction companies still tend to lag behind in terms of software integration. Ever since smartphones became ubiquitous between the mid and late 2000s, businesses and individuals have been obsessed with mobile technology. The advent of tablets has only strengthened this trend. However, many businesses don’t know how to integrate mobile technology with their desktop solutions, and the construction industry is no exception. A survey in 2016 for analyzing trends among construction software buyers revealed an interesting finding: while pre-sale functions such as estimating and takeoff continue to top the list of capabilities most-often requested by consumers, it was found that contractors are increasingly looking for solutions that streamline the actual build process. In fact, when taken together, project management (encompassing requests for project tracking, scheduling, and document management) is the number one capability required by SMBs. Currently, there are some very robust options available with construction-specific enterprise resource planning (ERP) software packages. These ‘all-in-one’ platforms address many of contractors’ challenges and pain points, by speeding up or automating processes and delivering defined workflows, tracking project data from conception through completion, increasing analytic abilities, and improving accuracy, transparency and compliance. The dilemma is, where to find them all in one place and yet not compromise with the overall project budget. We here at CIOReview India have brought together the top 10 Most Promising Construction & Real Estate solution Providers 2017.
