Report: Mobile Remains Big Trend in Construction Technology

The 3rd Annual Construction Technology Report has been released. Some 1,000 builders were asked about IT staffing, outsourcing, R&D, and cloud solutions used during the building process. James Benham, president of JB Knowledge, a technology consulting company for the construction industry, said most companies still lack the infrastructure to integrate mobile with desktop strategies. “Survey answers uncovered an awkward mix of personal devices being used without establishing proper data security policies and the continuous lack of technology providers offering mobile capabilities for their construction solutions,” explained Benham. JB Knowledge partnered with the Construction Financial Management Association and Texas A&M University’s Construction Science Department to conduct the research.
