Why is it? Why do I seem to be amongst the first to discover something new, yet amongst the last to adopt it?
Many years ago, I was part of a large architectural practice. We had the biggest army of draftsmen you’ve ever seen. They were all busy producing an endless stream of drawings. Revision, after revision, after revision. The plan printers were kept amazingly busy and the table space was huge. One day, I went to a seminar to see AutoCAD. The future had arrived! Everyone I knew was switching but I liked the way we did things – it was familiar and comfortable.
Fast forward a few years, in the late 2000s, I was telling everyone about the wonders of the new iPhone. You could see it would revolutionise the entire communications landscape, how it was the best thing since sliced bread. All my friends and colleagues purchased them in droves. Yet I persisted with my old Blackberry. It was good enough and I’d spent a fortune buying it!
“I’m not a laggard, I’m just practical” I would tell myself.
But this time it’s different. I can foresee the future for the construction industry, and I want to be part of it.
For the construction industry, this tool is a bigger deal than either AutoCAD or the iPhone. It is revolutionising the process and execution of projects. It is reducing re-work requirements, reducing ‘finger-pointing’ and definitely reducing stress levels. In addition, there will be a significant improvement in project visibility and in communication amongst everyone involved on the project, whether they work for you or for any of the many sub-contractors.
Unlike any other construction project management tool, the core of it revolves around three key components: People, Drawings and Communication. This concept is unique.
There’s a reason why in the space of just a couple of months over 10,000 people in over 170 countries are using it.
Imagine having all of the latest project information – tasks, communications and the latest plan revisions available on that very same iPhone you shunned so many years ago. The entire project in the palm of your hand.
You need to ask yourself, are you ‘practical’ like me, or are you ready to make the leap?
The future is now. Embrace it as quickly as possible.
