Perth, Western Australia (PRWEB) January 26, 2013
Perth Software Development company Anahata Technologies Pty Ltd announced it will be offering Software Development Services to Western Australian businesses operating in the construction industry.
Construction software is the collection of programs, processes and information used to perform various tasks within the building or assembling of a structure or infrastructure as a means of increasing productivity, efficiency, and competitiveness. Tasks previously administered by a project manager, construction manager, design engineer, construction engineer and project architect can be performed by construction software applications.
According to the Construction Financial Management Association's 2008 Information Technology Survey, the majority of all contractors are now using software for functions such as cost estimating, accounting, project management and scheduling and CAD, or computer-aided design.
In addition, firms within specific sectors of the construction industry -- commercial, industrial and residential construction as well as general contracting, specialty contracting and heavy and highway -- may use specialized construction software applications.
Anahata can assist firms considering construction software by assessing how the software integrates and inter operates with the database and existing software applications used by the firm and its subcontractors.
History construction industry software
The trend to implement software programs into the civil engineering industry began as educational concerns for the future as civil engineering prepared to enter the twenty-first century. Today, these concerns and trends are centered around the continuing education unit which have become required as part of maintaining the professional license. As a result of the expanding use and demand for these software programs, there was less of a necessity for occupations such as draftsman, because the engineer began to prepare and input the design parameters into the program, thus eliminating the need for manual drafting. Land surveying, a specialized subset of civil engineering, relies heavily on the computerization of the industry. University textbooks have already since begun to include software applications for students to gain experience with some kind of software interface.
