The construction industry has long had challenges with communication, and using digital technology to give clients a virtual tour of a building or site is an effective way to avoid miscommunication and streamline the process. Cloud-based technology helps construction managers share information with clients, which results in quicker approval. With the latest advances in construction software, construction managers can send clients updated information about the progress of their project. In addition, this technology makes it easier to process data at the same time, which reduces construction delays and improves client satisfaction.
