ConstructConnect’s acquisition adds a vertically-integrated preconstruction software for mechanical and plumbing sectors to its product portfolio
January 11, 2018
CINCINNATI, OH—ConstructConnect, a leading provider of construction information and technology solutions in North America, announced today that it has acquired the assets of Quote Software, Inc., a privately-held Eugene, Oregon based software company. Quote Software focuses primarily on estimating and building information modeling software and services for plumbing and mechanical contractors.
“The acquisition of Quote Software which includes its award-winning QuoteSoft® product line is a natural fit that gives us the ability to offer a more complete and actionable preconstruction solution to our combined customers,” explained Dave Conway, CEO of ConstructConnect. “This is an important transaction for us, and is a key component of how we continue to serve the industry by combining relevant construction information with easy-to-use software.”
Quote Software’s 26-year history was founded on the principle of “no two metal shops are alike,” so its software would not be a “one size fits all” model. The company’s QuoteSoft Pipe and QuoteSoft Duct estimating software was developed in accordance to fit each customer’s unique needs.
“We’re excited to be part of the ConstructConnect family,” said Kerry Brainard, president of Quote Software. “We share the same philosophy about maintaining strong customer relationships, by letting our customers drive the development of our products.”
ConstructConnect is a leading provider of construction information and technology solutions in North America, and a wholly-owned subsidiary Roper Technologies, Inc. Through the combination of its four legacy brands (iSqFt, Construction Market Data, BidClerk and Construction Data), ConstructConnect brings project participants together with the most complete, accurate and actionable construction data and tools to drive success in national, regional and local markets. Its collaborative network empowers the construction industry to be more successful with access to relevant information through easy to use technology.
