Technology gives edge to visionaries.
From estimating and bidding, to tracking and communicating, to evaluating and forecasting, forward-thinking homebuilders have sought solutions to streamline processes, reduce waste, and quicken response times. The result is happier employees, better customer service, and, perhaps most important, an improved ledger.
For residential homebuilders looking to invest in new technology to improve the bottomline, a good place to look is to others in the space that have already adopted and implemented similar technologies.
The winners of Constructech’s 15th annual Vision Awards share the belief that investing in technology is critical to accomplishing goals. From document and workflow management, to project communications, technology can help address challenges that exist within the construction industry such as dealing with huge volumes of paperwork; communicating effectively with far-flung field teams or distant and diverse team member cohorts; mitigating financial, environmental, or other risks; and compressing or otherwise streamlining inefficient processes.
The companies that have won the 2014 Constructech Vision Awards have been validated by an independent panel of industry analysts, consultants, and educators. The judges include Ed Anderson, Lean Implementation Services of Florida; Christian Burger, Burger Consulting Group; Pietro Ferrari, George Brown College; Mark Federle, Marquette University; Carol Hagen, Hagen Business Systems; Don Kaplan, The Rhodes Group; Anoop Sattineni, Auburn University; Bob Stewart, First Capitol Solutions; and Bill White, IUPUI.
Below are a few case studies that show how companies have not only received recognition for seeking and implementing solutions to challenges identified, but have been rewarded with remarkable results and ROI (return-on-investment) for diligent and determined efforts.
