Stop Leaving Cash on the Table: Reducing Construction Profit Fade


How to better leverage construction data to minimize profit fade and start earning more cash instead of leaving it behind.

Reduce profit fade
Don't let profit fade leave your wallet empty handed. Use data to recognize profit fade and keep your buildings (or projects) filled with profits.

What was specifically missed? You guessed it! A change order was not generated. Considering the wall addition was not recorded or entered into a construction management system, a charge order was not created. So, your teams are doing the work, but the contract is not properly adjusted and you endure the costs while leaving profit on the table.

Unfortunately, this happens a lot in our industry with construction organizations that utilize manual processes. There is too much to keep track of in such a short amount of precious time.

Of course, missed change orders, an estimate that was overly optimistic, costs that are out-of-control due to hiring a more expansive team, misordering of materials, or work that was tracked appropriately are all issues that can lead to profit fade.

But as contractors work smarter and become more data driven, these types of challenges can be alleviated. Modern, connected software solutions, real time construction data tracking and analysis, automated, collaborative workflows and more are all examples of how technology is making sense of the piles of construction data every project produces so that contractors like you can make more informed decisions, faster, and catch profit fade early.
