Tech Challenges Facing Construction Companies

Lack of Automation

Without interconnected, automated systems, you are left to manual data entry and processes, which is time consuming and leaves room for error.

Disconnected Systems

When your construction ERP, systems, applications, and workflows are not connected, you experience user frustration, downtime, inadequate reporting, and lack of insight into crucial project datapoints.

Inadequate Planning & Scheduling

Which can quickly cause frustrations & delayed timelines for workers, subs, and the client.

Difficulty in Collaboration

How connected are your field employees with the office, vendors, subs, and stakeholders?

Lack of Internal IT Resources

IT team doesn’t have the bandwidth to handle growing teams of employees or keep up with software and application updates because they’re bogged down other issues.

Underinvesting in Technology

Not allocating the appropriate budgets to improving software or investing in systems to track assets, resources, and people in the field.

BIG knows the value of developing a “Client for Life”

“Warfel continually chooses to partner with BIG due to consistently celebrating the same values and high level of expectations, no matter what size the project.  BIG knows the value of developing a “Client for Life”, and they have done so with Warfel Construction!”

I sleep easier at night knowing that BIG is driving our security initiatives.

“Like most businesses, Information and Cyber Security is a major concern for I.B. Abel. It would be time-consuming and expensive to hire all the additional personnel required to adequately handle the task by having our own internal security team. BIG helped us fill that void with their Managed Security Services offering. BIG’s software solutions, team of knowledgeable security professionals, and use of security best practices have helped our organization strengthen its overall security. We utilize BIG as an extension of our IT department, allowing our internal IT team to focus on core business functions, while providing assurance that our systems are being monitored and protected 24/7. All security issues are addressed quickly and effectively by BIG. As a result, I sleep easier at night knowing that BIG is driving our security initiatives.”

Aaron Wetherhold Director of Information Technology, I.B. Able, Inc.
They are our first line of support

“L.S. Lee has been working with BIG for a long time, so we trust BIG and their recommendations. Their staff has the capability to efficiently implement the latest technology. They are our first line of support.”

We feel that Viewpoint is uniquely suited to help us continue to meet the challenges of our customers

“As we celebrate 40 years in business and look forward to the future, we feel that Viewpoint is uniquely suited to help us continue to meet the challenges of our customers.

When Quandel was suddenly without an IT Manager, BIG stepped in and quickly assembled a team of professionals to assess our

“The words that come to mind when I think of Business Information Group are: professional, competent, ethical, responsive, and excellence. When Quandel was suddenly without an IT Manager, BIG stepped in and quickly assembled a team of professionals to assess our needs and provide interim leadership. In addition, BIG provided service in the areas of custom report writing, software audits, server & software migration, hiring of qualified IT professionals, and overall network support. On behalf of Quandel, I extend our gratitude for their excellent service.  I would not hesitate to recommend BIG and view them as an extension of the Quandel team.”

I couldn’t ask for a better relationship with a trusted vendor.

“We have relied on BIG and its team since 2014, so life before BIG isn’t really in our thoughts.  When I came on board as Director of IS in 2018, I was pleased to know we already had a relationship with BIG at SEMA and they continue to be our go-to solution provider for Viewpoint Vista support, customizations of processes and Crystal Reporting, and IT solutions. Having previously worked at Viewpoint as a Sr Sales Engineer, I already had relationships at BIG with people I had worked with for years and trusted them to work in SEMA’s best interest in multiple areas for our systems. BIG has been a trusted and proven resource to help me with our most complicated tasks and process improvements.”

Matt Mosley Director of Information Services – SEMA Construction
