The engineer of the future will be someone who has global knowledge; a passion for pursuing sustainability in innovation; a pioneering mindset when it comes to technology and the ability to work remotely.

They will be someone who can revolutionise cities to make them more environmentally and population friendly; someone who is able to improve the way we travel, who has the expertise to solve biomedical and chemical-related health concerns or is able to work cohesively with new software in order to further innovate.

As the world increasingly pursues technological innovation, the engineering industry will play an exciting role in solving the problems of today and bringing the future to life. In the past two years alone, we’ve seen how businesses have needed to pivot, innovate and redefine themselves in order to keep up. And as we move out of 2021, we have seen a surge in adoption of new technologies across industries.

As an engineering firm, how do you feel about digital transformation? Are your people ready to embrace innovation? Before you feel too overwhelmed, here are three simple areas you can focus on when it comes to adopting new technologies into your firm:

1. Keep your eyes on the client

Look out for systems and digital tools that help you optimise the entire customer journey and enable your team to provide the best customer support.

2. Change up your management system

Get rid of your old processes of using siloed systems to manage your operations and invest in an integrated digital tool.

3. Embrace a variety of technologies

The most successful companies will have a full suite of technology in their back-pocket – from digital management systems, to robotics, to cutting-edge analytics.

Each year, Deltek conducts a survey of firms in the architecture and engineering industry to identify the key performance indicators, market conditions, and industry trends. Conducted for the last 42 years, the Study is developed in collaboration with industry organisations across the globe.

We have created an insightful infographic that gives an overview of the annual architecture and engineering industry study, highlighting important trends in EMEA and APAC.

The key takeaway from the study is around the business impact of the pandemic on architecture and engineering firms, and research suggests that “a solid digital foundation [will] enable organisations to adapt more quickly to changing business conditions”. This infographic also highlights important questions and strategies that engineering firms need to consider throughout their digital transformation journey.

For example, there are five questions industry leaders should ask themselves to identify where they need to lay the groundwork for their transformation;

  1. What was the impact of the pandemic on our operations and revenue?
  2. What are some of the technologies that we need to help us differentiate?
  3. How were our projects impacted by the pandemic?
  4. What are our biggest concerns with developing new business, and how can technology help?
  5. How are our finance leaders measuring success and enabling our businesses to move forward?

Global research conducted by IDC, found that 21.3% of productivity loss in the workplace can be attributed to document management issues. Whether it’s employees being unable to find the right document, or being unable to access the document, according to Interact Source, almost 20% of business time, as much as one day per working week, is spent by employees trying to locate information in order to successfully complete their work.

In engineering firms alone, as much as 70% of the firm’s project information will not even be located within their document management systems, and might be found in desktop files or email servers. The result of this is scattered bits of information and unproductive workflows.

Migrating to a digital document management system is the wisest move, especially in an age when it’s best to go paperless, but the biggest driving factor would be the ability to access them anywhere (imagine you’re working remotely and realise the documents you need are locked away
in a filing cabinet at the office).
