In today’s construction industry, one of the most important aspects of any project, aside from health and safety, is the ability to increase productivity through proper management applications. There are an abundance of programs available to today’s industry (Patterson, 2015); however, some companies are creating their own versions. Many of these programs are tailored to the specific needs of the individual companies. This case study is an in-depth evaluation of personalized construction management software that was implemented by NOVO Construction. It also evaluates the employee preference of personalized software versus software readily available on the market today. The result of this research concludes that not only was efficiency, based on work hours, improved, individuals believe that personalized management software is beneficial in today’s growing construction industry.
