For those of you that participated in the Project Management Software Survey from Software Advice — a construction software reviews site — the results are in.  The Software Survey showed that 94% of participants rely on some kind of tracking software to manage their projects.

Interestingly, the Survey showed that those contractors that used specialized software platforms, instead of homegrown software, had the best track record for delivering projects on time and under budget.

The Survey also touches on topics such as:

  • Recurring Obstacles to Delivering a Project On Budget;
  • Recurring Obstacles to Delivering a Project On Time;
  • How Well is Your Current System Working; and
  • Project Management Challenges.

Software Advice’s Project Software Survey reveals that contractors are facing some real challenges with their software programs, especially those that rely on homegrown software.  At a minimum, after reading the Survey, you may not feel so alone in your software frustration.
