The contractors that learn how to effectively integrate technology into every aspect of their business will dominate tomorrow.

All competitive equipment-intensive contractors have very robust maintenance shops with strong equipment managers, brilliant mechanics, and a support team. This keeps the equipment running productively.

These shops often have solid fabrication capabilities where they make modifications to the equipment and accessories specific to their work that maximizes efficiencies. This leads to higher profitability and a competitive advantage.

Contractors must look at technology the same way they would look at an equipment fleet. For some contractors, building up a Systems Development Team is the right strategic move. For others, the timing isn’t right and this can be a huge distraction that impacts profitability and culture.
