The construction industry faces a host of challenges. These include:
- Tighter construction budgets and timelines
- Technology adoption and labor shortages
- Digitization and communication
General managers need to cut costs and shrink their schedules. Across the construction industry, business owners need to find new tools that help get the job done. Technology is needed to make companies more efficient to compensate for compressed schedules. At the end of the day, construction managers need to do more work with less time and less money. Adding the support of a Managed Services Provider (MSP) who can provide IT services in Tampa and around Florida is an affordable solution for construction companies.
We support middle market Tampa Bay construction contractors
We assist companies such as a mid-sized construction company in Tampa Bay and its sister company, a tank and pipeline servicer. They contacted us to have “on-call” support for traditional break/fix work that all small businesses require. This construction firm had utilized a part-time contractor who assisted them upon request, however, he worked full-time elsewhere and was not always available when problems arose. This is a common situation with SMB companies, who do not have the budget to employ a full time IT staff member.
We support several companies located in the Tampa Bay area in the fast-growing southern part of Hillsborough County. Like most mid-sized construction contractors, our customers have between 250-200 employees, and they generate revenues between $5-$50 million each year. We have experience with startup to companies with 60+ years in business. Many are family owned and have maintained consistent growth over the years.
