Construction management software helps in project planning and scheduling in the construction industry. This is done by sequencing operations of the construction project and enabling effective use of the schedules created via a work breakdown structure. The features and functions of construction software management includes specifying a project’s objectives and plans, which include delineation of scope, budgeting, scheduling, setting performance requirements, and selecting project participants.
The construction management software helps to monitor the cost-control system to achieve an estimated profit on projects and to monitor the predicted results. Construction project management software provides features to manage construction projects starting from its inception, by enabling features that monitor various stages of a project including procurement of design service and contractors, contract methods, and management of the construction contract process.
The construction management software market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period (2021–2028). Rising popularity of cloud-based software, expansion of product output, increasing application of lean management in construction management, increasing automated processes, and the need for maintaining regular follow-ups are some of the factors that will enhance the growth of the construction management software market during the forecast period. On the other hand, increasing research activities and business expansions will further create new opportunities for the growth of construction management software market in the above mentioned forecast period.
The major factor restraining growth of the construction management software market is the lack of awareness regarding the about construction management software as well as the lack of skilled labor.

Construction management software provides range of solutions that help the users to effectively manage construction projects, resources, and customers. Construction management software increases the efficiency and accountability of construction firms and businesses while streamlining previously manual processes, such as daily internal communications, job scheduling, punch listing, and QA/QC list creation. The construction management software is designed to work with or without an internet connection, bridging the gap between the onsite construction crew, project owner, and other stakeholders in real time.
Construction management software provides clients with Gantt chart that helps in splitting a particular construction project into groups of tasks and subtasks, organizing and scheduling tasks, and setting durations and dependencies between them. For instance, Ganttpro is a construction management software that has basic Gantt chart features as well as features for team management and the resource management. Ganttpro allows to create a workspace for the team, set roles, assign task to the team members, and track project progress.
Construction management software enhances the efficiency and accountability of construction firms and businesses by streamlining their manual processes. Additionally, it helps in job scheduling, time estimations, project management, job costing, cost control, punch listing, and assessing the construction risks. This increases the adoption of the software across construction industry, which then boosts the growth of the construction management software market. Increasing trend of cloud-based construction management software also influences the growth of the market. Moreover, increasing infrastructure projects, and successful project management drives the demand for construction management software during the forecast period.
