Getting Ready for High Construction Season

Spring has sprung, and that means high construction season. Are you ready? One way to get your ducks in a row is to assess your project processes and make sure you’re set up to make the most of project budgets. That means good resource allocation, strong project controls, and all the tools you need to manage them.

If you’re still using paperwork, spreadsheets, or an internal PM system to manage project processes, you’re not alone. Many facility owners and CM firms just haven’t found the right reason to update those processes. Others struggle to coordinate a bunch of separate applications.

Read on for client stories, free training and product updates to help you and your teams stay productive, improve control and reduce risk this season.

Thank you,

Printing And Paper Pushing: Fuel To The Fire Of Inefficiency

The construction industry is one of few industries that hasn’t experienced significant productivity gains in the last decade. In fact, construction productivity is on the decline to the tune of a whopping $19.2 billion in losses per year. One of the top 3 contributors? Paper-based processes. See how to reclaim those losses in this blog post.

A Fundamental Time Saver

Exchanging printed paperwork within an office environment may seem easier than using technology. But on-time project delivery requires real-time approvals and responses across several different offices and locations, as well as control over unnecessary risk and inefficiencies introduced by paper processes. See how Carollo Engineers and the City of Henderson easily realized process efficiencies and better team engagement via electronic project communications in EADOC. Read the case study.
