Digital Transformation Of The Construction Industry – A Breakthrought In The Hot Market

Construction is a capital-intensive business renowned for large capital expenditures. It does, however, provide substantial chances for digital change. The world's largest asset class is real estate.

CortexIMS is designed to empower companies to harness the full potential of technology, fundamentally changing the way they plan, execute, and manage construction projects.

The digital transformation of the construction industry is crucial. Construction companies will stop missing deadlines and losing huge budgets, and their customers will enjoy a high-quality experience.

The UAE has seen a notable upsurge in the real estate and construction industries in recent years. The real estate market in Dubai may be about to experience its biggest boom in ten years, according to Allsopp & Allsopp.

It's concerning, however, to learn that about one-third of Dubai's new building projects are falling behind schedule and losing a significant amount of money in the process.

With its reliance on manual and paper-based project management procedures, construction projects frequently encounter difficulties like cost overruns, delays, poor communication, a lack of real-time data, and ineffective resource management. Conventional techniques for organising, monitoring, and overseeing building projects take a lot of time, are prone to mistakes, and are ineffective. Spreadsheets, manual data input, and paper-based documentation all result in errors, misunderstandings, and delays that eventually affect project budgets and schedules.

These problems may result in lower output, higher expenses, and strained client relations. Construction companies cannot optimise their operations and streamline their procedures without a centralised, automated system in place. The absence of coordination and communication among project stakeholders is a serious issue facing the market. Both big players and small businesses deal with these issues.

The industry requires sophisticated digital services that speed up and elevate the quality of the process while offering assistance at every turn. The government is in favour of the digitization of the industry.

Regarding the need for digital solutions in the construction sector, it's important to remember that digitization is a global trend that has been steadily increasing.

Thus, utilizing Jirlie Framework, Neu Ocean developed a cutting-edge digital platform for CortexIMS, a Dubai-based construction technology venture, in 2024.
