Chasing specific business applications to solve a unique challenge used to be the answer to one problem, except as the technology stack grows, so does the disjointedness. This problem introduces more data and workflow challenges to be solved. As the construction technology landscape continues to evolve, one solution will not be the answer to today's productivity challenges. The ability to stack these technologies together with unique, streamlined workflows will be critical for competitive companies to grow.

Join Aaron Kivett, Director of Partnerships at Newforma, and Kristopher Lengieza, Senior Director of Business Development at Procore, to learn how the construction technology space is progressing towards more unity and the benefits of working in a connected environment.

This discussion will explore:

  • The knowledge and industry examples of how the tools project teams use daily can work together
  • Ways to simplify workloads and increase operational efficiency 
  • A roadmap to improve profitability and success
