Latest news about Construction Management and Collaboration software


2021. Bridgit secures $24M to provide construction companies with workforce intelligence



Bridgit, a “workforce intelligence” technology company that is focused on the construction industry, has raised $19.4M in Series B funding. Built for construction workforce planning, cloud-based Bench has become Bridgit’s flagship offering. This is not shocking considering the widespread labor shortage the industry has been experiencing. Bench aims to help general contractors plan and grow their workforce, leverage project data to improve bidding and staffing decisions and forecast project pipelines. The end result, Bridgit claims, is increased productivity and profitability.


2021. CostCertified lands $8.45M to build the Amazon for construction



CostCertified, a Canadian startup which provides real-time, interactive residential construction estimates, raised $8.45 million in a seed round of funding. Put simply, CostCertified today is a price configurator tool for construction, but the company’s end goal is to build the “Amazon for construction.” CostCertified allows contractors to send a shoppable interactive estimate to homeowners so that they can choose their selections during a project, and see the effect on price instantly. If you’ve ever performed a home remodeling project, you understand that this is something that would be incredibly useful considering all the various decisions required around vendors and products. Being able to see your options and how specific choices will impact your end cost in one place can certainly help make the project less stressful.




2021. Construction management platform Remato raises $1.7M



Small and medium-sized construction businesses in Europe and the U.S. tend not to be run on digital platforms. Publicly listed Procore is the go-to platform for large general contractors, but newer startups are going for this SMB construction market such as SiteMax, Sitemate, FieldLens and Fieldwire. Now, the Remato construction management platform is joining them with a $1.7 million seed investment round. Remato allows field contractors to plan and manage budgets, labor, materials and equipment in one app. The company says it is growing steadily at 10%-15% MoM with a mobile-first user experience and now has 1,700 daily active users.


2021. Autodesk uveils Build - its new Construction Management solution



Autodesk today announced Autodesk BuildTM - a new project and field management solution and part of Autodesk Construction Cloud, is now available to users globally. Autodesk Build provides construction teams with a single solution for project management, quality, safety, cost and closeout by connecting data, workflows and teams in one highly-configurable environment. Easy to deploy, adopt and use, Autodesk Build unifies best-in-class features from BIM 360 and PlanGrid and adds powerful new capabilities to make information immediately available across the entire construction team. Owners, general contractors and specialty contractors can enhance project quality by relying on Autodesk Build for real-time visibility that keeps teams in sync, improves collaboration, mitigates project risk and enables data-driven decision making.


2019. Fieldwire raises $33.5M to give PlanGrid and its new owner Autodesk a run for their money



Fieldwire, which makes task management software for construction teams on commercial projects, has raised $33.5 million in Series C funding. Still, the traction Fieldwire is enjoying might give the folks at Autodesk some pause, given the growing threat it presents to PlanGrid, a rival that Autodesk acquired last year for $875 million. As for what’s on its road map, Fieldwire — which already enables users to look at floor plans in real time, message with one another, track punch lists, schedule jobs and file reports — suggests it’s zeroing in on 3D architectural drawings, which puts it in more direct competition with PlanGrid. PlanGrid also makes construction productivity software, and is fueled by parent company Autodesk. More, it recently began offering users the ability to access building information modeling data, in either 2D or 3D.


2018. Autodesk buys PlanGrid for $875 million



Autodesk is to acquire PlanGrid for $875 million today. This digitization of construction fits with Autodesk’s vision of digitizing design in general. The acquisition of PlanGrid will accelerate its efforts to improve construction workflows for every stakeholder in the construction process. PlanGrid currently has 12,000 customers and 120,000 paid users, and has been used on over a million construction projects worldwide, according to data provided by the companies. They believe that under Autodesk’s umbrella and combined with their existing product set, they can provide a complete construction solution and grow the business faster than PlanGrid could have on its own — pretty much the standard argument in an acquisition like this.


2017. Oracle buys construction management software Aconex for $1.6b



US technology giant Oracle buys construction software group Aconex in a $1.6 billion deal. This marks Oracle’s second acquisition of a cloud-based construction software maker so far. Last year, it purchased contract and payment management platform Textura for $663 million and combined it with its own construction management software, called Primavera, to form the Oracle Construction and Engineering Global Business Unit. Construction projects consist of many moving parts, including multiple contractors and suppliers, complicated building codes and piles of paper documents, and managing everything can be a costly, time-consuming nightmare. This, of course, gives the tech industry an opening. In the past few years, several startups have launched to modernize the building industry, including Fieldwire, PlanGrid, Net30 and UpCodes.


2015. Fieldwire offers task-management app for construction projects



Fieldwire is a new mobile-first collaboration platform that is targeted at construction workers. Fieldwire is made up of a website and mobile app that enables project managers and foremen to create a list of tasks and rank them based on priority. As things change, they are able to very quickly reorganize those tasks, which helps to make workers more productive. Fieldwire is designed to make construction workers more efficient by making sure the foreman and workers in the field know what they need to do next at any given time. And if construction workers happen to encounter an issue, they can document it and things can be put back in motion more quickly. Like some other SaaS collaboration tools, Fieldwire operates on a freemium model for getting teams signed up. The first three users on a team are free, and then the company charges $20 per person per month for greater control and premium features.
