Building Better Data and Analytics in the Evolving Construction Industry

From drones and bleeding-edge technology to the end-to-end processes that drive efficiency, modern construction is undergoing a renaissance. Host Shaun MacIntosh talks with the top leaders in construction and provides unmatched insights into the industry that quite literally built the world around us.

 

The construction industry is adopting technology to work smarter, not harder. On Track.Map.Measure. delivers insights on how the field is evolving. Host Shaun MacIntosh took listeners on a deep dive into software with guest Tom Wiley, Senior Solutions Engineer at B2W Software. B2W Software offers a unified construction software that connects people, workflows, and data.

Wiley has been with the company for over 15 years and now focuses on solutions engineering. “It’s a fun and unique role where I talk to customers at the discovery phase to learn their problems and come up with creative and practical solutions to solve them,” he shared.

The importance of data in construction, just like in other industries, is rising. Capturing it and analyzing it can lead to better decision-making, greater efficiencies, and higher profitability. So, what’s the catalyst for construction companies shopping for software?

“It starts with some kind of problem, an impediment to growth or maximizing profitability. Often problems uncover other problems, too. Companies realize they can’t keep doing things the same way to grow and be competitive,” Wiley answered.

Deploying software can lead to benefits. “One story is a company that couldn’t bid fast enough with one full-time estimator and one part-time. After the implementation, they still had one estimator but doubled their bidding amount,” Wiley said.

The embrace of data to drive business is likely the next-generation of construction companies. “Tracking and making use of data can give you daily, weekly, or monthly basis on that cost. You’re fixing problems as they’re happening. These tools bring real value to those that use them,” Wiley added.
