Benefits of Construction Cloud Technology

OpEd – Andrew Tucker (Product Manager APAC, Trimble Viewpoint)

The Australian construction industry has a great opportunity to embrace the productivity benefits of construction cloud technology. By implementing cloud and mobile technology in construction, firms can enjoy successful project and business outcomes, including:

  • Increased scalability by subscribing to a flexible, cloud-based solution that can grow with your firm’s needs and objectives.
  • Access to real-time performance metrics, such as plans, budgets and schedules that allow for more efficient collaboration and decision making.
  • Enhanced security that is typically managed by experienced IT professionals, stored on secure servers and protected by advanced security protocols.
  • Improved collaboration and information sharing, thanks to streamlined workflows shared between internal and external stakeholders.
  • Reduced errors since manual data entry and validation processes can be automated, and since project schedules can be created and managed to ensure timelines are followed.

The Australian construction industry is historically known for its slow uptake of technology and limited productivity, but it doesn’t have to be this way. When implemented correctly, construction cloud technology can help businesses reach their project management goals, increase productivity and reduce costs. Construction leaders willing to invest in cloud-based technology will be well-positioned to drive their firms to greater success in the years ahead.
