In the past few years, there have been a number of acquisition announcements in the construction-software space. Viewpoint Construction Software has been one of the technology providers leading the charge.
The company’s list of acquisitions include CIS, Construction Imaging, ACS Connect, 4Projects, Maxwell Systems, Mobile Computing Systems, and Jobpac. Perhaps one of the more recent with a big impact was Maxwell Systems.
At the time the company says the construction market has been underserved by good contemporary software, and its intent is to continue to support the development of the core products, and will use the acquisitions to help extend software into a broader construction audience.
Certainly, Viewpoint has been one company that has taken both the buy and build approach to technology development, and it likely isn’t done. Stay tuned.
