Discover how we’ve automated the complex and intricate business processes of a U.S. construction technology provider to support growth and further increase their business reach.

Challenge

A U.S. technology vendor, dedicated to digitizing various agencies’ construction delivery processes, was looking for assistance in expanding their mission-critical software platform that comprises several products. They approached SPD Group through a referral by a former client of ours, who was well-familiar with our software product development competencies and skills.

The client’s system is a comprehensive construction delivery platform that automates the business processes of the various construction project stakeholders, including construction materials producers and suppliers, construction general contractors, and state transportation agencies. The products that make up the platform efficiently connect these project stakeholders and enable efficient interactions between them. The client entrusted to us the end-to-end development of two of the three products their platform consists of. Additionally, we’ve also augmented their in-house project team, engaged in developing the rest of the company’s platform.

Initially, the client engaged us to develop an e-Ticketing product that allows construction materials’ producers and suppliers and their clients to share sales- and delivery-related data in real time. The product eliminates a great deal of paperwork and makes it a great deal easier to locate tickets.

The second of the client’s products we’ve been engaged in developing constitutes the bulk of our involvement in the project under review. The product represents a comprehensive Web and mobile solution that empowers the buyers and suppliers of building materials with various insights they can generate based on current and historical data. For example, it is possible to aggregate data by customer and display the items and product amounts they’ve purchased by date or for a predefined time period. The user can also display all the clients in a selected area and the purchases they’ve made, indicating the item purchased, their amount, and purchase date. In total, the application allows building more than 20 different charts for various stats that can then be used for analytical and forecasting purposes.

Additionally, the application serves as an industry database for the Construction and Building materials verticals, making it easy to source suppliers, producers, construction materials, and various related products. The mobile version of the application provides access to the full range of the functionality the system’s Web version provides.

SPD Group was responsible for developing both of the client’s products from the ground up.
