James McFarlane, CEO, JDM Technology Group, has often expressed his philosophy that ‘buy and build’ continue to be its global growth strategy, as it acquires enterprise construction software in order to complement its current portfolio of ERP (enterprise-resource planning) software.

Through both ‘buy and build,’ JDM Technology Group now provides technologies across five continents and in more than 40 countries and services a customer base of more than 4,000 construction businesses.

For some technology companies, M&A (merger and acquisition) is simply about acquiring a competitor’s customer base. But with some of JDM Technology Group’s recent moves, it appears to be taking a different approach. Time will tell.

With a focus on delivering long-term commitment to customer service and combining a detailed knowledge of customer market requirements with highly developed IT skills in its staff, the organization is setting itself up to deliver what is needed in construction today.
