How Can Contractors Keep Up with a Construction Boom?

 

With the economic recovery holding strong, many industries are quickly rebounding, including construction. So, what’s the outlook post-COVID. Host Tyler Kern spoke with an industry expert on the subject, Jason Perez, CEO of YARDZ.

“2021 looks amazing for the industry. There are more projects but sometimes fewer people, so technology is filling the gap,” Perez said.

Perez noted the technological advancements in construction. “We’ve gone from blueprints to VR goggles that allow you to visualize a project before breaking ground.”
Using technology to accelerate projects is a big bucket. YARDZ offers a specialized software tool that allows companies and contractors to keep track of their managed and rented assets. That’s a process that often resides on a whiteboard.

“We had a customer with nine different whiteboards and labels, and he said, ‘I need a better way,’” Perez described. That better way comes from the company’s software, which he noted is really a product of their users. He continued, “We spoke to them early on to match their workflows and address their needs in the simplest way.”

The company’s commitment to optimizing processes and saving time can help them keep pace with the expected jump in project volume.

Perez addressed the roller coaster year of 2020. “Most projects didn’t get shut down. They kept moving, but there was a decline in RFPs. Then, at the end of 2020 and early 2021, a flood of RFPs appeared. 2022 is going to be a record-breaking year.”
