The importance of the use of software cannot be over emphasized as it influences planning, coordination and control of projects from the design to the execution stage. The study therefore sought to know how the application of software can improve the quality of project delivery in the construction industry. The objectives were to: determine the types of software used by construction firms in project delivery; evaluate the level of usage of software by construction professionals, assess the efficiency of the software on project delivery and how software adoption can improve the construction industry. Primary and Secondary data were collected. Questionnaires were administered to professionals in selected construction firms. Data were analyzed based on Relative Importance Index (RII). The result showed that the use of software has great and positive impact in varying degrees on cost management, quality management, time management and other aspects of construction management for a successful project execution. Moreover, Nigerian construction industry is still lagging behind in the full adoption of software therefore there is urgent need for improvement by embarking on training and re-training of the construction staff internationally in the new skills and construction methods towards achieving more efficient and vibrant construction .industry.
