Cloud computing and collaboration: they are integral to success in the construction industry. Technology companies continue to come to market with solutions and partnerships to address these trends.

For example, Jonas Premier, a division of Jonas Construction Software,, Markham, Ont., has announced a partnership with a dealer network in Australia.

Jonas Premier is now expanding into Australia and launching their first client, Venn Constructions,, Brisbane, Australia. With this, the company is looking to further grow within the Australia construction industry.

With this in mind, Premier has founded a dealer network that will be operated by Michael Jantke. Jantke comes from a background in computer systems and electrical engineering, and has 15 years of experience implementing ERP (enterprise-resource planning) systems across the world. He has completed numerous successful implementations, specifically within the construction industry for large multi-national corporations, and has forged many strong partnerships along the way.

Jantke says that after getting feedback from owners and contractors in the construction industry in Australia and seeing how simple, yet powerful, and reasonably priced Jonas Premier is, it became clear to him that this software solution fits a niche in the market that is currently being underrepresented.

Karoline Lapko, vice president, Jonas Premier, says she sees a lot of potential within the Australian construction marketplace and is looking forward to further expansion into Australia. She adds that the company is identifying specific needs within the construction industry in Australia for a fully integrated cloud-based software solution.
