Within a challenging global economic landscape, 2022 was a landmark year for technological advancements across all industries, and the construction technology sector was no exception. Our cmBuilder customers were active in providing product feedback and features requests and our team harnessed a proactive approach to not only meet, but hopefully exceed our customers’ needs and expectations. We are proud of our incredible product velocity powered by our Agile and lean approach.

2022 was a landmark year for the cmBuilder platform. We recognize the crucial roles that ease of use, speed and accessibility play in the development of our 3D/4D/5D construction site logistics platform. Over the past year, we made a conceded effort to make accessibility a priority in all aspects of our software in the form of performance, scalability and collaboration. In light of this, we believe that keeping our customers informed and engaged is the best way to maximize the accessibility of our software.
