Tough economy is driving a tremendous wave of agencies to go digital in the AEC industry
As the Director of Engineering for a sanitary district said it, “Contractors and engineers want to do everything electronically with us, we have to stop wasting time and money pushing paper that provides no value to our district and our customers”.
- Public agencies face shrinking tax revenues requiring them to reduce project costs while increasing accountability.
- Designers and contractors face shrinking margins from fierce competition requiring them to provide increased value to their clients.
- Private owners face one of the tightest credit markets in history forcing them to reduce costs and risks on their projects.
All of these players are looking at technology to help them deliver more for less. Combining today’s challenging economy with advanced software and hardware solutions designed for managing capital projects has created the pressure to push everyone away from the paper age and into the digital project. In this months, “New Customer Corner” section, you will find examples of agencies in all sizes, from small to large, making the move to electronic project management.
