Design and Construction Survey Reveals Why More Tech Doesn’t Always Mean More Productivity

On-time, on-budget rates not meaningfully improving despite enterprise tech adoption
Easy-to-use tech and the right talent deliver greater returns than project management software
Project management software utilization rates below 50%

ARC Document Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:ARC), a leading document solutions provider to design, engineering, and construction professionals, today released an e-book containing insights from its 2019 Design and Construction Technology Survey. The e-book, available on the company website explores responses from more than 300 design and construction companies on why productivity isn’t improving in the industry despite the wide availability of technology solutions designed to help.
Key takeaways highlighted in the e-book include:
40% of respondents are using four or more software platforms to manage their workflow
Data silos, redundant data input, and stand-alone spreadsheets are the top killers of project productivity
62% of respondents feel that their project managers do not have time to proactively address issues
More than 40% of respondents claimed that their teams have underutilized the capabilities of their project management software and overpaid for it
“Our customers were generous with their time, willing to go deep, and transparent about the issues they face. As a result, their responses are insightful and actionable,” said Kumar Wiratunga, Vice President of Technology Solutions for ARC Document Solutions. “That spirit of cooperation was the primary reason why we developed the e-book. Construction is an inherently collaborative effort, so identifying common challenges, developing solutions, and sharing ideas for productivity improvements benefits everyone in the industry.”
