Dump Trucks Columbus OH Insight:
There are four things that have happened during the last five years that have driven an uptick in technology adoption by contractors, said Jay Snyder, technology and innovation practice leader at FMI, listed as follows.
- The availability of more software as a service (SaaS) offerings. With SaaS solutions, columbus oh dump truck company typically have better access to customer service and can scale the product to meet their needs.
- Software is being developed for mobile devices rather than just desktops and laptops.
- Connectivity at jobsites has improved, although Snyder said that it is sometimes still a struggle as construction crews are often on the job before the necessary infrastructure can be set up.
- Millennial workers expect their columbus oh dump truck company technology to act as efficiently as their home technology does.
Yet, as this latest study indicates, columbus oh dump truck company aren't using the technology that is available to them.
One reason, said Snyder, is that tech companies don't always place the benefits to the end user above the excitement of introducing a new solution. "It all goes back to what supports the strategic initiative of the contractor," he said.
In addition, Snyder said there is a "proliferation" of point solutions, each one addressing a different issue. The problem with that, he said, is that many columbus oh dump truck company don't have the in-house staff to properly deploy and integrate them.
So, how does the industry begin to move that needle in the other direction?
Tech companies, Snyder said, need to take initiative, start having substantive conversations with columbus oh dump truck company and prove that their solutions columbus oh dump truck company through pilot projects. Many contractors, he said, don't have someone scouting for the best tech because tech adoption can be disruptive to their operations and too expensive.
If tech companies are waiting for construction firms to invest in teams of tech experts, Snyder said, industry-wide digital transformation is going to take a very long time.
"Contractors rely on trusted companies in the tech industry to lead through [providing] viable, reliable solutions," he said.
