Explorer Software Group has been named one of the 50 hottest companies for 2009 by Constructech Magazine. The Constructech 50 Hottest for 2009 is a listing of the most influential construction technology providers with a strong and ongoing market presence as determined by the editors of Constructech magazine with assistance from its editorial advisory board.
Published in the first annual Constructech IT Playbook, this directory is a new variation on the Hottest Companies awards that Constructech has presented in the past. While in previous years companies were judged based on the success and growth found solely in the past year, winners of the Constructech 50 Hottest are evaluated on a continued and dominant presence in the marketplace.
Explorer Software Group is pushing technology to bring enhanced functions and features to their software solutions. Rather than being stagnant during this time of recession, Explorer has been active retooling a number of its applications and made the shift towards the Web and the Browser as opposed to the desktop operating system, notably Windows as the crucial layer of software. Explorer recently integrated Google Maps into their Shafer’s Service Dispatch System. A completely browser based offering of their flagship product, Contract Manager, including customization abilities such as Dashboards and Key Performance Indicators will be released this fall.
“Explorer is proud to be named one of the 50 hottest companies for 2009” said Jim McFarlane, president and CEO of Explorer Software. “It is our highly trained, skilled professionals and support staff combined with an unwavering commitment to our customers that will continue to enhance our ability to address the specialized and increasingly global requirements of the construction industry. As Explorer grows we are continually focused on being the leading provider of software solutions for the construction industry worldwide.”
Receiving this award from a highly reputable magazine like Constructech – a publication focused exclusively on the technology needs of the construction professional – clearly demonstrates the Explorer Software Group continues to have meaningfully impact on our customers.
