#2 CONSTRUCTION SOFTWARE & DATA ECOSYSTEM
Real-time collaboration software is already regarded as an essential component of the entire building process. Nevertheless, its impact on the sector is expected to increase substantially soon. It goes without saying that data has played an integral role in this paradigm shift in construction. The emergence of a data ecosystem where all the innovative players of the industry will come together and share data, experience and project knowledge is closer than we might think. And it is no exaggeration to maintain that it’s the only way forward for construction.
The ability to integrate your existing processes and systems into a single fully connected platform can empower the way people in the industry work. A plethora of software solutions for different functions and disciplines in the course of a construction project can now effortlessly be combined in one place.
The use of digital tools facilitates the accumulation of these valuable bits of information and by extension, the minimisation of delays, rework rates, and communication hiccups between the site and the office. In that sense, reliable real-time collaboration software is expected to function as the digital backbone for the construction process from start to finish.
