Dexter + Chaney Announces New Web-Based Version of Construction Management Software

Seattle, Jan. 24, 2012: Construction software provider Dexter + Chaney launched a new, web-based version of Spectrum® Construction Software at this years’ World of Concrete trade show in Las Vegas Jan. 24 – 27, 2012.

Spectrum version 14 offers unprecedented accessibility, ease of use, and affordability and is the culmination of the software developer’s 30 year history of serving construction professionals. According to John Chaney, president, “The newest version of Spectrum represents a significant re-investment in our existing product line and sets a new standard for connecting the construction office with the field.” In addition to many new features, v14 will be accessible via any web browser from any location using any Internet-connected device.

The latest version of Spectrum software, already used by thousands of contractors for construction business management, is a full-featured web-based product. “Spectrum version 14 sets a new standard for usability and accessibility that will truly connect the construction office with the field,” said Chaney. Spectrum users will be able to deploy the software on-premise or access it through a cloud environment. “Our customers will be able to access the full features of Spectrum from anywhere using virtually any device with a web browser,” added Chaney. “Our goal with Spectrum version 14 was to deliver the most accessible, easiest-to-use construction software without any sacrifice in functionality – and we succeeded.”

The browser-based functionality drove a significant improvement in usability. “We’ve completely redesigned our user experience, putting all the information about a project or a job no more than one click away. Whether you’re tracking job costs in the office or managing job progress in the field, you have all the information you need literally at your fingertips,” said Chaney. Spectrum version 14 can be deployed by the client on-premise or customers can also choose a completely cloud-based option and never worry about software updates or hardware requirements. “Contractors can now access the industry’s most powerful business and operations software without having to load a single disk or buy a single new piece of hardware,” said Chaney. Running in a browser simplifies IT infrastructure and reduces costs. The user saves time and money on setup, hardware, and internal support; even workstation requirements are low since all processing occurs on the server. Spectrum eliminates the need for third-party software and additional hardware that other programs require to run on the Internet.

Dexter + Chaney is demonstrating Spectrum version 14 at booth C4165 in the central hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center during the World of Concrete 2012.
