Vancouver, BC – Explorer Software, one of the leading providers of job cost accounting software worldwide, today announced that its Business Analytics tool is the #2 Reporting Software used by Construction companies. Constructech Magazine released its annual Constructech IT Playbook earlier this month. The survey found that Explorer Software’s Business Analytics (BA) tool is the second most popular reporting software used by construction companies, surpassing traditional leaders such as SAP (Business Objects), IBM (Cognos), Oracle, Microsoft, and others.

The IT Playbook takes a look at IT selection, deployment, and usage in the construction industry, examining the importance of various technologies. In addition, it explores trends in the construction industry, including mobility, cloud computing and collaboration.

“The construction industry has changed drastically during the past few years, as technology continues to evolve and play a critical role in every aspect from the office, to the jobsite, and to everyone involved in the construction process,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Constructech magazine. “That’s why our 2015 Constructech IT Playbook is so important to the construction community this year. It is about IT spends and trends and analyzing the data for homebuilders and construction professionals alike,” she adds.

“We’re pleased about the impact Explorer Eclipse and Business Analytics have made on the construction industry,” says Mark Liss, President of Explorer Software. “Easy-to-create custom reports, charts and dashboards are in high demand and contractors that are using BA are reaping the benefits of its flexible and powerful design. This tool is the right solution for our industry and has become a proven leader in the marketplace.”
