Dexter + Chaney Launches New Construction Operations Software

Dexter + Chaney (, makers of Spectrum® Construction Software, launched Venture™ Project Collaboration Software – a new web-based software product targeting the needs of construction operations professionals at this years’ World of Concrete trade show in Las Vegas Jan. 24 – 27, 2012.

Venture is the first product release from Dexter + Chaney’s newly formed Operations Group.  “Our product line delivers a new approach and a new platform for collaboration across the entire lifecycle of a project,” said Mark Reich, senior vice president, Operations Group.  Venture addresses the needs of construction operations professionals, uniting the management of project documentation, people, and communications on one easy-to-use platform.  Venture keeps the threads of communication and information flowing between all team members throughout a construction project. “There are too many starts, stops, and restarts in today’s typical construction project,” said Reich. “Venture facilitates the sharing of documents and information throughout the entire project lifecycle.”

Venture’s many features work together to help operations professionals assemble bid teams, share and manage documents, control versioning, automatically send alerts and create project logs, take control of issue management, and much more.  “Contractors we’ve worked with as we developed Venture were typically using four or five different applications to manage all the information and people associated with a project,” said Reich. “With Venture, they have one product that does it all and that keeps their information flowing seamlessly across all the phases of a project.”

Venture saves contractors money by reducing the number of software applications they need and by providing web-based access to all of its features.  “Venture is a complete hosted solution that is ready to use. To get started, just open a browser and log in,” explained John Chaney, Dexter + Chaney co-founder and president. Venture is also “free-to-play” for all project team members.  “If you use Venture, your subs and vendors pay nothing to access and use Venture for your projects as well,” said Chaney. “This gives Venture users a competitive edge in building stronger teams and streamlining project execution.”
