It is exciting news for Meticulon, and our good friend (Meticulon President) Garth Johnson, who is auticon’s new Canadian President.
The latest release of Vitruvi™ covers a number of key features, including a new Permissions module, a new Pay Item type, and many other great capabilities.
Just because it’s right there in the industry name, doesn’t mean that companies responsible for building telecommunication infrastructure are immune to basic communication challenges that can set a project back.
According to a study by the Project Management Institute (PMI), 55% of project managers surveyed agreed, “the most crucial success factor in project management is effective communications to all stakeholders.”

With each new generation of telecommunication technology comes a promise of increased speed, bandwidth and connectivity – all of which open the door to game-changing innovation. According to a 2018 report by Deloitte, 5G: the chance to lead for a decade:
5G is not simply an extension of 4G, nor is it merely a faster wireless capability. 5G makes possible the connection and interaction of billions of devices of almost any kind and collection of data from those devices. Indeed, 5G connectivity promises to lead consumers, industries, and governments to new frontiers of productivity and innovation.

According to research conducted by McKinsey & Company, “Cost overruns are the norm in the construction sector.” The report authors found that on average large capital projects take 20% longer to finish than planned and come in up to 80% over budget.
There are a number of reasons why construction projects go over budget: many of which could be mitigated if the industry was more proactive in embracing modern process and technology innovations, according to the study.
We have shared 10 of the most common reasons why construction projects go over budget – and how new technology can help change this.
The world is changing, and thanks to new technologies and new ways of thinking around productivity, workforces have more opportunity to connect and collaborate than ever before. Companies involved in the design and construction of large, complex construction management projects are becoming more efficient and more effective as a result.
Yet, for companies making the transition to this new way of doing business, it’s only natural for long-time staff members (even senior management) to want to stick with the way things have always been done. The status quo is comfortable. Change, on the other hand, can create fear, worry, stress and unease.
