Virtual Panel Discussion on May 20 Explores How Contractors Can Use Construction Data Analytics to Better Cope with Today’s Challenges


Free event focuses on practical strategies and real-world questions, with representatives from ProNovos, OTL, Colorado State University and Eide Bailly.


ATLANTA (05/14/20)–A virtual panel discussion will explore how construction contractors can use data analytics to navigate everything from run-of-the-mill recessions to the unprecedented uncertainties triggered by Covid-19.


Hosted via Zoom teleconferencing software, the event begins at 1 p.m. (EDT) on Wednesday, May 20, and lasts for approximately 60 minutes.


It comes at a time when construction companies are grappling with questions related to safeguarding employees, retaining talent and maintaining margins, noted Bruce Orr, Chief Data Scientist at Atlanta-based ProNovos, a construction data analytics firm.


“Contractors are facing many tough calls right now,” Orr said. “Fortunately, many have spent the past few years onboarding construction data analytics tools that give them access to powerful—and often barely tapped—capabilities. Part of what we’ll discuss is how to take full advantage of these tools in the context of today’s challenges.”


Members of the multidisciplinary panel will also share their varying perspectives on the use of construction data analytics.

The panelists are:

  • John Killingsworth, PhD, a construction management professor at Colorado State University who has conducted extensive research on how contractors can weather economic downturns;
  • Bruce Orr, Founder of ProNovos and a 20-year veteran of data analytics;
  • Bryce R. Wisan, CPA, CCIFP, a Partner at CPA firm Eide Bailly, where he is executive committee member of the firm’s Construction & Real Estate practice—recently named the #10 construction accounting firm by Construction Executive magazine; and
  • Wickham “Wick” Zimmerman, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Anaheim, California-based OTL, a design-build contracting firm known for its rockwork, themed construction and specialty water feature projects.


Moderating the panel will be Eric D. Vittardi, Market Development Manager at Foundation Software, a leading provider of job-cost accounting and construction management software solutions.
