The construction industry has not been as progressive as other sectors in its use of information technology.
Several organisations aimed at promoting the use of IT were formed in response to a 1998 government report highlighting that the industry was lagging behind.

Comit was at this year’s Construction Computing event at London’s Emirates Stadium to help make sense of the wide range of mobile IT products and services on offer.
