While many of the needs have stayed the same, the technology players have evolved, causing quite the shakeup in the market.
Carol Stream, Ill. (PRWEB) December 15, 2015
Mobile, BIM (building information modeling), cloud, and collaboration are still areas that are of top priority for most construction firms, as commercial contractors are looking for the best solutions available in the market. It’s clear the industry has specific needs and wants, and the 2015 Constructech IT Playbook clearly demonstrates what the industry is looking for.
Constructech magazine is proud to announce its 2015 IT Playbook features technology selection, deployment, and usage specifically for the commercial construction industry, examining the importance of various technologies, the criteria for selecting a technology provider, and the state of software interoperability. What’s more, in an exclusive section, the 2015 IT Playbook identifies the leading technology providers for the commercial market.
“We have seen an uptick in commercial work across the country,” says Laura Black, editor, Constructech magazine. “As such, our research also shows that the number of commercial contractors turning to technology is increasing in a highly competitive market.”
A snapshot of this year’s commercial results show:
- A new software leader emerges in estimating in commercial construction—but only by 1%.
- While the top three companies in project-management have been leaders for years, there are also a surprising amount of new companies coming onto the list, snatching up a small percentage of the marketshare.
- The landscape for mobile software is drastically different than just two years ago. While the leader captures 19% of the market, there is a long list of companies close behind.
“The commercial responses we gathered for the 2015 Constructech IT Playbook are eye opening,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Constructech magazine. “While many of the needs have stayed the same, the technology players have evolved, causing quite the shakeup in the market.”
