Owners and Contractors: The Great Divide

For many years, capital program owners and project contractors have typically worked in separate project and program management systems.

This way of working has led to a disconnect that has caused inefficiencies and risks to rise for both owners and contractors – along with additional costs. For example, contractors often have to perform duplicate data entry – while owners are paying for it.

Recent data from Dodge Data & Analytics, Trimble and e-Builder offers a look at feedback from both owners and contractors on their challenges and what could be better in their processes.

The Challenges: What Contractors Are Saying

73%

Report that duplicate entry negatively impacts their productivity

70%

Report duplicate entry slows their information workflow

62%

Say duplicate entry impacts their frequency of data entry errors

The Challenges: What Owners Are Saying

70%

Of owners believe contractors add risk by estimating project progress

42%

Of owners are unsatisfied (or neutral) with their current payment and progress processes

47%

Of owners say their current process to assemble payment applications takes too long

"[With a PMIS], you can always see where things are in the process workflow. That builds in some transparency, and we've tried to take that into account on our side, to report on it regularly, to make sure that we're doing our jobs too, not just that the contractor's doing theirs."

“Once contractors realize they can see where their RFIs are sitting and who is holding them up, they become fans – especially of how quickly they get paid ... when an application is submitted, it will go through the architect, the PM, through me, into the financial system, and they'll get paid pretty much in 10 days.”
