New electronic information and communication technologies are transforming the way many business processes are performed in companies. Improvements in efficiency and reductions in the cost of obtaining, processing, and transmitting information are changing the way business is conducted. An audit of the implementation of these technologies, could help raise awareness of current technological developments and identify opportunities being missed and obstacles to implementation. The paper presents results of a survey into the implementation of information and communication technologies in materials logistics in the UK construction industry. Even though implementation is on the increase, evidence suggests that the construction industry lags behind the rate of innovations in other industries.
