Taking the pulse of IT usage in construction

3/9/2017 at 6:13 pm by

Technology no longer seems to be an afterthought for many construction companies. According to recent research, 47 percent of contractors have a formal information technology (IT) plan in place that specifically ties to business goals.

This is just one data point revealed in a new Sage infographic on construction IT usage and planning. The infographic is based on research Sage conducted alongside the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America. Nearly 1,300 construction professionals responded to the survey. Some highlights include:

  • 38 percent of construction firms have no dedicated internal IT staff.
  • 85% of respondents use or plan to use cloud computing services.
  • Documenting daily field reports is the number one use of mobile technology.

The infographic also provides information about IT spend, what contractors are using to collaborate, and what they are doing about IT security.

Use the infographic to benchmark your own IT efforts with that of your peers.
