Construction Management

What is construction management software?

Construction management software manages the planning, scheduling, resources, contracts, budgets, and execution of construction projects. It enables construction firms to improve the use of their project data to optimize decision-making, resources, and profitability throughout the entire project lifecycle – from pre-bid to 4D digital twin workflows to project execution and handoff.
