APPROVED LANGUAGE FOR PRESS RELEASES

Now in its 19th year of publication, Construction Executive is the leading trade magazine about the business of construction. In its September 2021 issue, CE published a comprehensive list of The Top Construction Technology Firms™ featuring an analysis accompanied by an article in which leading technology experts discuss their construction clients’ most pressing business concerns. CE developed The Top Construction Technology Firms™ list by asking hundreds of firms that provide technology and software solutions for the construction industry to complete a nomination form. The information collected included: 1) the firm’s product offerings specific to the AEC Industry; 2)  the user profile for each product (type and size of firm for which the product is recommended); 3) how each product is sold (by seat, user, license, project, etc.); and 4) the number of active users within the past twelve months (by individual users and/or companies). There was no fee to participate and not every firm that completed the nomination form made this curated list. After carefully scrutinizing the data collected, CE developed its 2021 Top Construction Technology Firms list. For more information, contact surveys@magazinexperts.com. Note: Some technology firms which did not submit the nomination form by the deadline were included by the Publisher for the sake of completeness.
