In the first of three videos they produced from those conversations, SoftwareAdvice.com asks, "What's driving companies to purchase new construction software?" 





In the second video from the 2011 CFMA Conference, SoftwareAdvice.com asked which segments in the industry are most active. Is there more activity among the speciality contractors, or general contractors? Why?




In the final video from SoftwareAdvice.com's interviews at CFMA, the software company executives talk about the specific functionality that construction software buyers are interested in today. They emphasized the importance of project management applications, ease-of-use and adaptability, complete mobile functionality, and integrated document and contact management functionality.
