SEATTLE, October 6, 2015: Dexter + Chaney, providers of Spectrum® Construction Software, is pleased to announce a business partnership agreement with Atlanta-based Strategies Group to resell Spectrum in the Georgia, South Carolina, northern Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama and Louisiana markets. Strategies Group, founded in 1992, has grown into one of the leading software and technology consulting firms in the Southeast and has helped guide hundreds of clients through software decisions, implementation and support. In 2000, respected technology consultant Randy Collins purchased the company, and has been instrumental in helping the company grow during the past 15 years. Original Strategies Group founder Pat Chappell and thirty-year industry veteran Ron Smith recently joined the company when it was beginning discussions with Dexter + Chaney.

For Dexter + Chaney, the partnership represents a strong, strategic move to continue to grow its business and business relationships.

“Randy, and the entire Strategies Group team are well-respected, smart professionals that really listen to, and understand the needs of, their customers in the markets they represent,” said Dexter + Chaney President Norbert Orth. “We really liked how well their own business model mirrored ours and knew this would be an excellent fit for both of our companies to seize on some enormous growth opportunities in the construction technology marketplace.”

Strategies Group had been a leading Sage/Timberline reseller for more than 20 years before agreeing to exclusively represent Dexter + Chaney. Collins said Dexter + Chaney’s commitment to technology over the years has positioned the company, and Spectrum Construction Software, well in the industry. He specifically noted Dexter + Chaney’s ability to not just keep up with emerging technologies, but to anticipate them and innovate with them.

“After more than 20 years serving the market, Strategies Group believes that the construction industry is changing faster now than ever before. With ever-tightening margins, a more dispersed workforce and a dearth of qualified workers, it is imperative that we continue to discover and deliver products and services that provide valuable information anywhere in a format that is user friendly and on a technology platform that our clients can build on for the future,” Collins said. “After thoroughly researching the software marketplace, we strongly feel that Dexter & Chaney’s Spectrum product line provides the best accounting and operations solution for these issues.”

Like Dexter + Chaney, Strategies Group is heavily involved with industry trade associations and educational resources. The company also puts on a number of its own conferences and special events for clients and prospective clients each year, providing them with a wealth of resources to learn about new technologies and get the most out of software solutions.
