Digital Transformation in Construction Industry


Technology era has brought a lot of transition in construction industry; however when we speak about managing document in construction industry, paper based are still the norms. Managing thousands and thousands of paper documents becomes a tedious task for the organization as paper dominated the construction industry.


Challenges


  • The major challenge in the construction industry is documentation of the projects handled by players in the organization. The documentation is the key to start any project, construction industry manages documents like contract agreements, statement of work, billings, work sheets, legal documents, drawings etc. As the project progress hundreds and hundreds’ of documents are formed and versioned. At this point of time retrieval of any informative/versioned documents is time consuming and tedious.


  • Due to lack of proper collaboration there is complexity in understanding the work history of the construction projects.


  • Construction industry is still driven by drawings. During the project when someone is asking for current design or any changes, there is delay in processing and sharing of documents among the owner and contractors.
