Uniroc Construction, a civil construction firm with headquarters in Mirabel, QC, found that using different systems to manage different aspects of their operations was causing a disconnect between their teams and, consequently, a bottleneck in their efficiency-driven operations.
Uniroc knew they wanted customizable cloud based construction software that was easy-to-use, quick to set up, and built specifically for the construction industry. Civalgo, an emerging leader in the ConTech marketplace, had the technology, personnel, and operational systems they needed to meet their operational needs.

After booking a demo and trying it free for 14 days, Uniroc chose Civalgo to resolve key pain points and improve overall organizational efficiency.
Construction is complex, and nobody anticipates the needs of the industry better than those who have seen it at its worst. Uniroc wanted cloud based construction software developed and finely tuned for the construction sector. Civalgo, the brain child of civil construction entrepreneurs, was born in the field and grounded in 10 years of field experience.
Uniroc wanted a solution that even their most tech-averse PMs and contractors would buy in to. Industry-wide, only 8 percent of construction firms are consistently using their digital technology to its full potential, usually because it’s too hard to use or they don’t know how.

Construction may have lagged behind in terms of digital adoption compared to other industries, but it’s more than making up for it now. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s been in hyperdrive.
Today, more construction companies are embracing digital technologies like cloud based construction software to tackle inefficiencies, streamline workflows, and protect their workers and profit margins. This widespread adoption of digital technologies among construction companies of all sizes, and indeed across the whole supply chain, will make digital capabilities a basic requirement for SMEs to operate in the industry.
Thankfully, with new investment funding from the federal government’s Innovation, Science and Economic Development program, more SMEs will be able to access the necessary strategic and technical support they need to ensure a successful digital transformation.
