JDM Technology Group, formerly known as Explorer Software Group, serves as the umbrella for five individual operating companies including Explorer Software, CSSP Construction Software, Computer Guidance Corp., Integrity Software Systems, and RedSky IT. It is one example of a construction ERP (enterprise-resource planning) provider that has made big moves recently in order to grow its business by building a portfolio of projects through both organic growth and acquisitions.

Late last year, Explorer Software Group announced that it will now operate under the name JDM Technology Group, which better reflects the identity of its individual operating companies and brands, while positioning the software group for future growth and expansion.

This follows the organization acquiring a multitude of companies in construction to ensure its services and solutions best fit all client needs.

For example, the technology company most recently acquired U.K.-based accounting and job-costing software provider Integrity Software Systems. JDM Technology Group also acquired Computer Guidance Corp. in early 2014 with a focus on expanding operations in North America. Other operating companies include Explorer Software, CSSP, and RedSkyIT. In particular, Explorer Software and Computer Guidance have both been adding new customers and releasing enhancements for mobile and cloud.

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 software. Through both ‘buy and build,’ JDM Technology Group now provides technologies across six continents and in more than 40 countries and services a customer base of more than 4,500 construction businesses.

With a focus on delivering long-term commitment to customer service and combining 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.
