The Construction Industry: Keeping your IT on a Level

In 2008, businesses felt the effects of the worst economic downturn since the great depression. The impact was global and every industry sector was affected. For those in the construction industry, this was a particularly difficult time. Many firms were forced to change the way they operated and adapt to the situation in order to survive. Boost in demand and lower interest rates means that conditions are now right for growth in this sector after years of suffering. The industry is in recovery and those working within construction can finally feel optimistic about the future.

The question is, with the promise of a period of sustained growth, are their IT systems built for profitability?

One problem that is commonplace amongst our clients within the construction industry is how difficult it can be to complete construction projects on time and within budget. When you consider that the average construction project suffers 150% cost overruns and completes more than 175% late, there’s clearly a great need for a solution that can help to deliver projects on time and within budget – and in turn, transform their profitability.

It is vital that construction companies that are looking to maintain competitive advantage and ensure maximum return on investment, opt for IT solutions and software that:

  Is completely flexible and totally customisable to suit the needs of their business

  Enables projects to be delivered on time and within budget

  Is scalable to support changing demands and strategies

  Is compliant with the HMRC Construction Industry Scheme
