A game-changing positive tech disruptor in the construction industry, called SurePact, is combating the low technology productivity uptake in the sector saving local governments and businesses millions of dollars through effectively managing contract risk.
Globally, construction is one of the largest and most important sectors accounting for more than 11 percent of global GDP and expected to grow to 13.2 percent by 2020, according to a PwC report. With the construction industry being one of the last sectors to embrace tech disruption and prepare for the digital future, the sustainability of the sector has been a common concern. Tech-disruption is vital to innovation and growth in all sectors, but the construction sector is needing it more now than ever.
Megan Avard, Founder of SurePact, an award-winning, cloud-based enterprise software that provides contract and procurement analytics and risk identification solutions to governments and businesses, is passionate about being part of positive change and progress in the industry she is well advised in.
Megan credits her early learnings when kicking off SurePact 12 months ago to Startup Onramp, Founded by Colin Kinner. She said it gave her the ability to develop a go-to-market strategy and position the company for a successful launch over a period of weeks instead of 6-12 months. With several councils already piloting SurePact, Megan is fast tracking to significantly grow and scale quickly.
SurePact is committed to supporting remote and Indigenous Councils in contract delivery and their reach has led them as far as Mornington Shire Council in The Gulf and Palm Island Aboriginal Shire Council. SurePact’s industry-shaping Contract Risk Management Solution to support capacity building in contract risk management and delivery is a major game-changer and is ultimately saving councils and local governments time, money, and lives.
Last week SurePact launched industry-shaping Contract Risk Management Solution for Palm Island Aboriginal Shire Council in an effort to support capacity building in contract risk management and delivery. This is a major game-changer and SurePact is very excited to be leading the way in technology productivity uptake in the sector.
Sarah Wrigglesworth, Palm Island Aboriginal Shire Council Director of Works and Facilities, said that “Megan’s working knowledge and experience made a big difference; she understands the time it takes to manage projects and the required reporting for different funding and government bodies”.
“SurePact was built for the industry by someone who understands the industry – and this is what sets it apart. I truly believe this platform will help us run a smoother and more transparent operation, which will be a win for us the Council and the residents of Palm Island” said Wrigglesworth.
Adopting digitisation in construction means a more productive and profitable industry that builds more sustainable assets. Construction companies need to be proactive in the digital future to stay ahead of the competition—or risk being left behind. SurePact’s multi-award-winning contract and procurement analytics and risk identification software is finally the much-needed solution contract and project managers have long been waiting for.
