5 Demands of Construction Technology Today

Insightful for Construction Office and Field Technology

Yesterday I received a gift via email that I thought I should share, this ebook. It’s a quick read from the president of AIIM International, who understands why doing business like you used to will be to the detriment of your business.  This title reminded me of “the Cloud and Mobile Computing Technology” panel discussion at the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) Annual Conference last month.  With every manifesto comes demands.  In this case there are five:

  1. Commit to the Cloud
  2. Mobilize everything
  3. Make the business social
  4. Digitize anything that moves
  5. Prepare for extreme information management

This ebook validated my company services and and our solutions alignment with the needs of the construction industry. Are you working in a paperless plan room?  Can you collaborate and communicate electronically with your documents from your smartphone or tablet?   Has the volume of data you collect grown exponentially and are you putting this data to good use with business intelligence?  Whether you are the CEO, CFO, CIO or VP of Operations at a contracting firm I suggest you take a moment to grab a copy for yourself at http://www.aiim.org/About/News/OccupyIT-eBook

Do you agree with these demands?  Why or why not?  Leave us your feedback in the comments.

Let us help you avoid the “Why the hell have I been spending so much on technology, and yet have so much frustration to show for it?” syndrome.
