The past few years have witnessed the construction industry rapidly adopting technology to become more efficient. However, it is still being held back by inefficiencies, people-process-and-data silos, and a lack of digital maturity. As a result, there is a myriad of challenges facing construction companies on a day to day basis ranging from jobsite safety, resourcing, productivity, and keeping pace with regulations.
To overcome the problems, the construction industry needs to deploy business-level strategies rather than treat them as isolated single-project issues.
That’s where Elecosoft can help.

Finally, Elecosoft ensures customers have a clear software implementation plan to streamline user onboarding and adoption so that organizations can take their investment into winning and building projects from day one.
“Before a project begins, the project team can use Elecosoft Powerproject to outline the critical path to determine where, when, and how many skilled tradespeople will be required,” says David Hernandez, managing director & head of US operations, Elecosoft. “At the end of the day – our goal is to make it easy to get our powerful solution into their process as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
The software also allows organizations to pivot through challenges that arise on a project site, such as sickness, fluctuating material prices, a shortage of skilled workers, and other unforeseen challenges as they happen in real-time.
