Construction Process Verification vs. Outdated Tools

Are you an owner who is progressive about moving into the future of automation or not?

When was the last time you thought about doing your job differently?

For most in the construction industry, the answer is somewhere between “Just Now” and “Never.”

If the job is getting done, why try something new? Right?

Over the past century, this mindset has left the construction industry in catch-up mode and lagging behind in technology adoption by nearly 20 years. As far as construction process verification tools go, there have been little to no progress.

What would your life look like if you were satisfied with 20-year-old technology?

Notice how dated all of this looks compared to what you use today?

That cabinet that houses your email server and all the other “computer stuff” is just as bad…the only thing worse? A filing cabinet and project binders full of paper.

How Does This Happen?

If you work in construction, you focus on what you can see.

Did the job get done and did it get done right? For veterans, a quick look provides the answer.

But that mentality does not translate to improving the efficiency and effectivity of your business. In fact, it is what you can’t see that will save you the most money.

Technology is not a necessary evil. It is your path to competitive proposals, more business, and a happier workforce.

Do not hold on to the solution you purchased 20 years ago just because it still “gets the job done” because that isn’t enough anymore. Your tools (including technology) need to work just as hard as you do and they need to be actively saving you time, resources, and money.

Are You Watching Your Business in Low-Definition?

Outdated tools cannot show you what your business is missing any more than this old cable box can tell you what time the game starts.

Instead, look for other indicators.

Are you winning fewer jobs than you used to?  Is it taking too long to receive payments?

Is it harder to retain new field workers? Is performance beginning to slip?

The truth of the matter is that hiring someone new is not going to solve the problem. A new hire, no matter how talented, cannot keep up with the pace of technology…but your business can.


Start Small  - Win Big

You did not leap from that push button cable box straight to on-screen TV schedules with hundreds of channels.

The progress was slow, and because of that, you learned along the way and found value at each change. You recognized that if you did not adopt new technology, you were limiting yourself.

Apply the same approach to your business. Start with a small intentional change – one that has the potential to make your business better and more efficient.

Understand the tool and what it offers your business and the way it operates.

New technology does not have to a black hole that separates you from your business. Instead, it can be like your on-screen cable menu…showing you more than you have ever seen before and giving you the information you need to make great decisions.
