This survey has been conducted biennially since 1996 and represents the most comprehensive ongoing information technology (IT) study in the construction industry. Over 2,400 companies completed the questionnaire, making this the largest review of IT patterns in the industry. The 2006 survey was conducted in October and November of 2005 and was open to both CFMA member firms and non-member firms.
In the Job Costing/Accounting/Payroll revenue category, Computer Guidance retained first place status in the $101-$250 million and the plus $250 million categories with 20% and 18% market share respectively. eCMS was also the first choice of General Contractors in the plus $250 million category at 26%. Computer Guidance also secured the top spot for companies in the $101-$250 million Specialty Trade Choice category with 30%.
"We're pleased to once again be recognized by this prestigious survey," said Roger Kirk President. "The fact that we claimed top spots in these two highly competitive categories confirms the superior performance of eCMS and validates the strong confidence that so many construction companies have in our software solutions."
