Key findings from the study reveal the growing challenge:
“The need for contractors and owners to use their own project management applications has always been there,” said Steve Jones, Senior Director of Industry Insights from Dodge Data & Analytics. “The problem is, they [the two applications] have not worked together well. The data in this research quantifies the impact of the data silos between contractor and owner.” The problem will only increase as more project owners adopt their own project management system. Trimble’s strategy of connecting construction data, as part of its Constructible Process, seeks to provide efficiencies in building construction.
“The instant the first construction management software was invented, the clash over data ownership and transparency on construction projects was born,” said Chris Bell, Vice President of Marketing at e-Builder. “Unlike some vendors that attempt to serve multiple stakeholders with the same application, the latest technology trend is purpose-built software with connected data. We are proud to be the first to offer this for construction project management.”
