Top 5 Challenges when Implementing New Technologies on Construction Sites
Roughly 40% of the cost of a capital project is on the construction execution side, yet a majority of our IT budgets are focused on the design and project controls tools. With stagnant or even declining productivity gains as an industry, which has continued even with increased technology spend in these areas, what is preventing the construction industry from investing and adopting technology in the field?
This webinar will take a deep look at the top 5 challenges when implementing new technology on construction sites—exploring this issue from all directions, including stakeholder involvement, the labor force, industry culture, and the effective and ineffective ways in which a project shares data. Presented by Paul Mitchell, Director of Construction Solutions at Atlas RFID Solutions, attendees will leave with an understanding of what is preventing the construction industry from investing and adopting technology in the field, not just the home office—and what can be done to overcome those obstacles.
