Who Needs a New Solution

The report finds that 58% of prospective construction software buyers were managing their bids with traditional methods. These manual methods include paper and pen, Microsoft outlook and Microsoft Office.

11% of companies looking for new bid management software were using a tool, like Microsoft Project, that is not geared toward construction management. Those prospective buyers were looking for a more specialized solution.
