Software company Dexter & Chaney has created a new division that will focus on new technology for construction.

The Dexter & Chaney operations group will create software platforms and applications for those involved in construction operations.

“Construction collaboration has been an industry buzzword for a number of years,” said John Chaney, company president and co-founder. “We created the Dexter & Chaney operations group with one objective in mind: use technology to help make collaboration a reality, not just a buzzword. We looked at the sheer number of different applications used by our customers from pre-bidding through to project completion, and we were shocked. We knew that there had to be a better way to deliver technology to construction firms trying to work together. That’s when we began forming the operations group.”

The group will be announcing its first product offerings in early 2012, Chaney said.

“Look for more than a few new applications,” he said. “Look for a whole new approach to project collaboration software from Dexter & Chaney.”
