If you’ve been keeping track of predictions for the construction industry, you know they can be summed up in one word: technology.
This year managers in the construction industry are jumping on the digital and mobile bandwagons: more smartphones, more tablets, more wearable tech, and most importantly, more software. If you plan to put any of the former improvements in place, construction management software should be your first step. Many solutions optimize for mobile devices, provide paper-free document management, scheduling, project management and more. Selecting construction software is a great first step to modernize your system, saving your company time and money in the process.
Capterra has over 200 construction management solutions listed in our directory. With that many options, it can be hard to know where to start. Often, the first question buyers ask is, “Who are the big players in the market?” To help shed some light on the answer, we have created the Top 20 Most Popular Construction Management Software Solutions.
This research uses our unique Popularity Index, which creates a weighed and ranked score based on:
- Number of current customers
- Number of active users
- Social influence
- Number of Facebook likes
- Number of Twitter followers
- Number of Google +1
- Number of LinkedIn followers
- Klout scores
- Number of Capterra reviews
In the context of this infographic, “customers” refers to the number of unique organizations and companies that are accessing a full version of the software. “Users” refers to the number of individuals at those organizations (contractors, subcontractors, administrative staff, etc.) who have access to the program.
This research is not all-inclusive. The most popular solutions are not always the best fit, so we do not recommend you use this research to dictate your shortlist. That said, we think our index provides a pretty good reflection of the market, and uses the most accurate estimates available to date.
Most of the estimates we used came directly from the software vendors. We pushed back on any number that seemed inflated, and provided our own estimates to fill in any gaps in our data. These Capterra estimates are highlighted in the data table below, are based on extensive industry research and calculated using our industry averages.
Take a look at our ranking. Are there any vendors you would like to see on this list that we may have missed?
