Global Report: How construction is using technology to improve performance

The past year accelerated the need for technology within the construction industry. What we are hearing now is that technology is factoring heavily into how our customers are approaching 2021 and beyond.

Today, we released the results of our annual customer technology report, Unlocking the ROI of Construction Technology, which provides insights into how leaders in the construction industry are using the Procore platform to drive positive results in their business during a year of unprecedented challenges.

The greatest lesson learned is to prepare for what’s next, by investing in the technology, systems and processes that make businesses more efficient and adaptable to future changes.” – Tooey Courtemanche, CEO and Founder of Procore
