Don Price – Through our strategy sessions we realize we dont know what tomorrow is. But what we are committed to is we continue to investigate, we continue to partner with new technology companies and were looking at whats happening out there. Were staying involved; we want to be there for you years down the line. Were not your partners for one project; were your partner for continuous improvement.
George Aucamp – If theres one thing we realize, its that technology changes at the speed of light. We as people, we dont handle change as well as the little computer that gets a new chip in it. We recognize that and we want to bring the assurance to our clients that we will look at that big picture of the evolution of the technology and try and ensure that our people embrace that change that takes place, learns it and brings it to every client that we have in a long-term solution and keep evolving it. Thats why we do implementation of a product that can be modified because guess what, what find out today and do today, maybe three months from now you recognize that hey theres more efficiency here and we want to ensure that you can evolve as we learn and you as our owner learns, we want to put that learnings together to give you a better solution at the end of the day.
Technology has changed drastically over the past 10-15 years. We shop and bank without leaving our homes. Life is made easier with smartphones that act as cameras, video recorders, music and book libraries and even babysitters (sort-of). But in the construction world change happens slowly and adoption of evolving technology to make things better is hampered by attitudes against change. Many people are still affected by the old paradigm of computers dont help and spending money on construction software system development is a black-hole where the investment rarely brings about a worthwhile result.
Today, it is recognized, on large construction programs and capital improvement projects, that cloud based computer usage helps communicate across the globe in real-time and allows the project team to work together to contain costs and manage schedule.
System and software development has advanced to where we can implement configured systems to work the way you want to work in a matter of days, not months.
If you’re ready to “step out of the box” and have an organized team with clear roles and responsibilities, where all of the members of the team are not only collaboratively following “best-practices” but also getting the efficiency and effectiveness that mobile technology offers, then you are ready for 21st Century technology.
