Carol Stream, Ill. — March 6, 2018 — The skilled labor shortage is causing a ripple effect that is impacting every single business across the country. But, technology can help construction companies tap into intelligence to streamline business processes.

To help identify the best technology on the market, Constructech recognizes the most innovative solutions in the construction industry with a 2018 Commercial Top Products award.

When judging the Constructech Commercial Top Products, the editors, along with the editorial board and industry advisors, take into consideration the backbone and core functionality of each platform, also, they consider new functionality that will allow contractors to develop strategies for the year ahead.

“The Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and big data are changing the way the construction industry conducts business,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director of Constructech magazine. “There is an incredible opportunity for construction professionals to tap into the data that exists within systems, and this year’s Constructech Commercial Top Products winners can help do that.”

Top Products winners this year fell into basically two key categories: New Product or Trusted Product. New Products have been in the market for less than two years while the Trusted Product category have been in the market for at least three years, and have been upgraded or enhanced.

“The research we conducted will hopefully help contractors find the best technology solution for their business,” says Laura Black, editor of Constructech magazine. “This will enable companies to operate at optimal efficiency, lessening the impact felt by the skilled labor shortage.”
