On Center Software’s New Industry Survey

April 2, 2015 kyle.hamer@oncenter.com


On Center Software’s 2015 Construction Industry Survey found significant activity surrounding movement to cloud technologies, with integration, collaboration, communication and error reduction cited as critical drivers. Fully 31% of respondents indicated that they were planning on moving takeoff, estimating, and project management processes to the cloud within the next one to two years.

Respondents identified themselves as executives, managers, chief estimators, estimators and project managers. The nationally conducted survey was completed in March 2015 and received over 900 responses.

Minimizing costly project errors and rework ranked as some of the top concerns to 65% of respondents, reflecting what has historically been a bane of the industry. Correspondingly, 70% of respondents cited estimating and 82% cited takeoff as important areas to integrate. According to Cecilia Padilla, CEO of On Center Software, these concerns are interrelated:

Collectively this data paints a picture of the struggle that today’s construction professionals are having with yesterday’s tools, and their concerns for mitigating costly errors through adoption of new technologies. The money made during estimating and takeoff can easily be lost in the field due to errors that occur when multiple sets of plans are maintained on various types of media. It would appear that the industry is banking on the inherent error reduction through the one truth transparency of cloud technologies to solve these problems, says Padilla.
