Despite a recent uptick in private financing and M&A activity, the construction industry remains a laggard in terms of technology adoption. A number of platforms and point solutions have emerged and are bringing traditionally paper-based processes online, but much innovation remains to come.

As these transformations occur, truly vertically integrated platforms will emerge.
