Are you working with your technology, or working around it? Technology poses a number of challenges for businesses across all sectors. IT can provide hurdles or advantages. IT can frustrate or elevate.

Generally speaking, there is a low IT spend in the construction industry, which implies that many companies don’t fully understand how technology can improve their operation. IT often requires an investment — if not of money, it’s an investment of understanding and action. When a construction company is willing to make this investment the payoff can be immediately tangible and immensely valuable in the long term.

Effective IT can build the foundation of a more effective business. How can IT get you to your goals?

Improved Mobility

Breakthroughs in cloud technology have revolutionized the way construction companies can conduct business. As long as you have an internet connection, you or your team will have access to the data they need — no excuses and no delays. As you can imagine this feature alone can be extremely useful on the job site.

Where and how you’re storing data is a matter of flexibility and business continuity. If you’re keeping important files stored locally — such as in your office — there’s always a risk of losing them to natural disaster, fire, or even theft.

Backing up your data to the cloud removes these risks from the equation. Even better, when your backup/recovery solution is administered by a professional IT provider, you can always be sure that your backups will be available should you need them. No guesswork, no extra burden on your team.

More Efficient Project Management

You’re certainly no stranger to the technology use in your industry. Construction companies rely on software like Sage, ConEst, and SolidWorks to operate day-to-day. They have to work and they have to work when you need them.

Simply updating your technology can free you from daily issues like slow internet, poor communication between apps, and missing files. Proper IT management takes things a step further by ensuring seamless integration between your mission-critical tools, on-demand access from any location, and minimized downtime.

The result is more productive employees and happier customers.

Less Risk, Greater Security

These days, digital security is becoming more important than physical security. Deadbolts and security cameras won’t stop hackers from locking you out of your system and demanding a ransom — a potentially devastating possibility.

A professional IT provider such as NCC will build your company’s IT on a foundation of solid, reliable cybersecurity. We’re talking layered protection, not simple antivirus programs. Your business needs solutions like 24/7 monitoring and real-time threat response to defend against modern cyber threats.

With properly-managed IT, you reduce exposing your own information — and your clients’ private data —  to malicious activity.
