Supply shortages hit blooming building industry

Britain’s booming construction sector is suffering from severe supply chain bottlenecks as it experiences the strongest growth in almost a quarter of a century, the latest snapshot of the industry has shown.

Tom Fairbairn, Distinguished Engineer at Solace comments:

“Technology can of course help to overcome the shortage and supply companies with these critical materials. It will help communicate vital product information and delays at each stage of the supply chain process – what is known as events – as they happen, keeping all pieces of the supply chain puzzle working together in real-time. It is imperative that building companies and suppliers embrace event-driven architectures to overcome the shortage.”
