A unified construction management software platform, empowering you to seamlessly collaborate and deliver projects on time, on budget.

The Cost of a Fragmented Industry

This fragmentation of data has a huge and direct impact on the project outcomes across all levels of the organisation:

  • Teams are disconnected and working from outdated information, leading to wasted time and security issues
  • On the Project Level, the disconnection between the office and the field accounts for massive avoidable rework, impacting project cost, quality, delivery time and profitability
  • There's a massive impact at the business level also - unused and lost project data is hugely reducing potential opportunities such as portfolio visibility

Construction is massive, made of many challenges and is changing quickly. LEARN MORE

Challenges in Construction today...

We hear our customers talk about their day to day challenges

  • Deloitte, globally found earnings before interest and tax on construction activities is just 5.5%
  • McKinsey & Company found that 98% of megaprojects experience delays
  • FMI found that over 95% of all data in engineering and construction goes unused
  • AGC reported that 80% construction companies cannot find the workers they needed
  • FMI found that only 18% of firms reported consistently using mobile apps to access project data
  • KPMG found that 78% of engineering and construction companies believe that project risks are increasing

Overcoming the Challenges

Here we explore 6 themes to overcome the challenges in construction...

  • Increased collaboration - with increased collaboration, the phasing of work between trades can be better planned, leading to fewer delays
  • Single source of truth - A study with PlanGrid and FMI found that rework caused by poor project data costs the industry $280B annually,  By working off of one, single source to truth, teams can reduce errors
  • Connected 2D & 3D - teams arm teams with both 2D plans and 3D models so they can better understand how components are installed and identify potential clashes before they hit the field
  • Improved data accuracy - Teams can better plan and forecast their projects.
  • Standardization - By standardizing on one platform, teams are able to function more efficiently.
  • Digitization - by by digitizing many of the processes, the gaps between distributed teams can be drastically closed.
