Ever since they first arrived on the scene, human beings have been busily building things. Whether fabricating a road, a bridge, a dam, a family domicile, a shrine for worship, or a place of business, builders throughout our history have made use of the best materials and technologies available to them at the time. We even name the key epochs of our history after these materials and technological advances: the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, and so forth.
Thus, from Stonehenge to the Parthenon to Chartres Cathedral to the Empire State Building, each lasting monument conceived by our species represents a revolution in the construction industry.
And our current epoch—the Digital Age—is no different. Without computers, the immensely tall glass-and-steel towers that practically define our 21st-century cities would be inconceivable. And without the specialized project software that runs on those computers, the most distinctive examples of modern infrastructure would remain the stuff of dreams.
Construction IT Tools You Can’t Live Without
It runs the gamut, and serves everyone involved in the construction process, from banks and investors, to architects and contractors, to accountants and inspectors. Much of it is software-based and encompasses most of the key aspects of construction, including:
- Cost estimating and financing
- Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
- Procurement and scheduling
- Project management
- Worksite coordination
- Team collaboration
- Inspection and quality control
- Regulatory and safety matters
Now, What If It All Went Wrong?
Pacific Computer Consultants knows that architects, builders, project managers, and subcontractors depend on a reliable information technology infrastructure. It is vital that all construction-related applications, as listed above, not only function but function together seamlessly—all the time, everywhere, whether at the job site or in the office. Project web portals, cloud applications, blogs, and productivity tools are supposed to keep construction companies, their staff, their subcontractors, and their clients informed and up-to-date on key project elements.
When any of the them fail, the project risks falling behind schedule, costing everyone money and putting valuable reputations at risk.
