Incompatible Software Costs the Equivalent of
1600 Jobs / Year in the HVAC industry
Study Shows Ongoing Problem
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) commissioned a
report from New Horizons Foundation.
The 52 page technical study reveals some disturbing numbers. In the
HVAC and Sheet Metal Industry, almost $16 billion is wasted
annually due to lack of compatibility and interoperability of
software used in estimating, scheduling, and production.

as scheduling and fabrication software can't talk to one another and
share data, then data re-entry from one system to the next becomes a
Further aggravating the problem, the more times manual data entry is
necessary, the more opportunities exist for introducing costly errors.
The report, Impact of Incompatible Software on HVAC and
Sheet Metal Contractors is available in hard copy and PDF
format from New Horizons for $50.

Horizons Bookstore or click the report cover in this article to
