Construction Best Practices

A Guide to Selecting the Best Construction Software


Construction management is no easy task, as today’s contractors have a lot to juggle: job costs and budgets, progress reporting, overseeing subcontractors, field crews and schedules, materials and equipment, constantly moving timelines and much more. That’s why many turn to modern software solutions to streamline and manage a wide variety of workflows. The annual construction technology survey from JBKnowledge lists nine common workflows construction companies use technology for, including estimating, project management, accounting, scheduling and BIM. It also lists dozens of solutions ranging from spreadsheets to fully-integrated, cloud-based construction ERP platforms that contractors use to handle these processes.

With all the solutions out there, how do you choose the one that’s right for your business? Contractors can consult industry peers, explore what competitors use, try to do research on their own, read reviews and reach out to technology providers. But busy owners and managers may not have the time or technology expertise to do all that digging. And if you choose the wrong solution, your ROI likely won’t be great, and the software may end up hindering your jobs rather than helping them.
