Podcast: The Building BITE
Season 3 Episode 5: "Empowering Everyone In Our Industry to Understand Their Contacts"
Please tune in to this episode of The Building BITE Podcast, as we hear from industry experts about key topics to help you be successful. The Building BITE hosts Chris Epps, LEED AP and Mike Diercksen, CRIS, welcome Josh Levy, Co-Founder and CEO of Document Crunch.
We begin the episode by discussing Josh’s path from University of Florida, where he understood he was less of a brick-and-mortar type construction professional, and more into the business of construction. Josh led a successful career and ultimately found himself inundated with contract review and questions while operating as in house counsel for a large GC in the Southeast. Josh was able to collaborate and co-create Document Crunch to empower the industry, and as always gives our listeners three excellent takeaways and best practices for how to better understand your contracts:
- The contract does not have to be a black box: There is no need to treat the contract as this quagmire, we should instead be empowering our team to better understand them so they can help make informed decisions and protect the companies bottom line.
- Data can be used to drive good decisions: We have gotten to a place where we have enough accumulated data to be able to use that knowledge to guide our decision making process. As Josh says, “Tomorrow starts today” and firms should be looking to leverage this information to enhance their current situation and lead them into the future.
- We have an opportunity to transform the industry: There is a proliferation of technology and solutions now that have the ability to transform the construction industry. As leaders, we are charged with taking our industry from a place of being a bottom two digitized industry to one that is a more advanced and innovative space.
