The construction industry follows societal trends in the Fourth Industrial Revolution and seeks to apply new Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). ICT can capture, store, process, and distribute information electronically and in large quantities. Thus, ICT can contribute to many construction documents, such as the Construction Daily Report (CDR), which has a considerable amount of data for processing and shared responsibility with several project team members. The research method used is the case study through a qualitative analysis of the information management software. The results demonstrated that its use enabled greater control of the production process, shared responsibility with the corporate sectors, and became a basis to minimize conflict between the stakeholders. The solutions incorporated in the program are presented to meet the principles of standardization, flow improvement, and increased transparency. Furthermore, the software collaborates with the solidity and quality of the enterprise’s official document and their management information, bringing better storage reliability and greater agility in information retrieval.
