For two months we surveyed the construction industry to create our 2013 Construction Project Management Benchmark Report. Our report discovered that construction project management software users are more satisfied with their system and deliver more projects on time and on budget than their peers.
Last year, we surveyed contractors, estimators, building owners and others about their estimating processes and the technologies they use to improve them. To start 2013, we’d like to know about your construction project management best practices. Help us development an industry benchmark report by filling out this survey.
