There’s a surprisingly high failure rate in the construction industry. If you start today, there’s only a 35% chance of staying in business. But why is it so difficult to sustain success in this industry, and what can you do about it?
Many companies are still using the antiquated paper and pencil method to operate. According to Phillip Ogilby, this failure to adopt new technology is one of the top reasons why businesses don’t make it. But investing in technology won’t just help your business survive — it will help your business thrive for years to come.
