While some still say the construction industry slow to adapt, tech-savvy GCs across the globe are proving that's no longer the case. Fortunately for the industry, and also to their own benefit, construction firms have begun to embrace change and seek out smart solutions that improve their existing business processes. Early adapters faced the challenge alone, but now the market boasts a newer, smarter solution daily.

Construction-specific software solutions have been the front-runner in this campaign for change, with one of the major candidates being project management software. Project management software gives construction pros greater control over project success, increases efficiency and accountability, as well as streamlining communication. Employing this type of software solution is a significant investment and largely impacts your team's daily activities. So, the next step is where the challenge truly begins: implementation.

There will always be hesitancy associated with change, but finding the right method for implementation can help your company reap the benefits while avoiding pushback from your workforce. As a component of CBO's ongoing Webinar Series, and in partnership with Procore, “Software Implementation 101,” will take place September 24, 2015, at 1 p.m. EST. The free webinar will share tips for implementing both enterprise-level and out-of-the-box software.

During the webinar, attendees will learn from speaker Joe Little’s real-life experience regarding planning, training and psychology to help your software rollout become a success. Little is the construction training manager at StreetLights Residential, a developer of urban multifamily and mixed-use communities. Little has over 20 years of educational experience, with more than 15 of those years in the technical and corporate training arena. His experience ranges from small companies to large-scale enterprise software implementations. Throughout his presentation, Little will address concerns common to software implementation that include:

  • Planning
  • Discovery
  • Documentation
  • Education
  • Development
  • Integration
  • Testing
  • Rollout
  • Communication
  • Training
  • Extra Preparation
  • Closeout
  • Final Documentation

Kick off your software implementation initiative with this free, one-hour, live webinar event that will include a 45-minute presentation by Little, followed by a 15-minute Q&A session. To help further facilitate your implementation plan moving forward, webinar attendees will receive a free bonus: Procore's "Construction Software Buyer's Guide." This complimentary guide is designed for owners, GCs, construction managers and PMs looking to improve project management processes.
