Construction Software Quick Summary

Construction software helps firms automate critical processes such as takeoff, estimating, project management and accounting and integrates various applications and stages of the project life cycle, from pre-sale through building and final billing. These tools can help firms modernize, grow their business and operate more efficiently.

Benefits of Construction Software

Implementing construction software can benefit your business two key ways:

  • Win more bids. Performing takeoff and estimating calculations by hand is not only time consuming, but error prone as well. Construction software can read a blueprint and perform these calculations in less time and with greater accuracy because it syncs with an online database of labor and material costs), saving you time and helping your firm win more bids.

  • Provide an audit trail. The sheer volume of documentation—Blueprints, quotes, contracts, purchase orders, RFIs, change orders, punch lists, invoices—needed for any construction project is enough to make your head spin. Construction software acts as a centralized database, allowing users to upload and store this information in a single, searchable location. This database provides firms with a virtual paper trail for every project.

Competitive Advantages of Construction Software

Here are a few examples of how these tools can help you gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace:

  • Scale your business. If you're trying to manage multiple jobs and coordinate paperwork across job sites, mistakes are likely to happen. Software helps avoid costly legal fees and offers a more disciplined approach to managing projects, especially as you take on more projects and complexity multiplies.

  • Operate more efficiently. Whether you're looking for a best-of-breed estimating software, or an integrated suite to manage the entire project life cycle, construction software can help you standardize processes and automate tedious
