The construction industry in the past couple of decades has gone through some serious overhaul, morphing itself to cope with today’s need for speed. Technology has been a major factor in this transformation and continues to drive progresses in the field of construction paving way to newer techniques that minimize downtime to a great extent. This has also enabled construction companies to undertake large volumes of work every month. Workload of such magnitude creates a dire need for effective management of projects and the processes involved within them. To this end the use of business grade software has made life considerably easier for construction companies. UDA Technologies is a key provider of such software for the global market. This US basedcompany for over a decade and a half has been providing construction professionals with proven processes and workflows designed to cover all the details involved in a successful project from the planning stage through final construction.

During this phase the company found huge success with its clients and were prompted to add services specific to various other disciplines of the construction industry which included aspects such as design build, renovation, commercial and property development. Apart from expanding its service portfolio, UDA has also expanded its employee complement over the years to keep up with its clients’ demands. UDA currently has over 350, 000 construction professionals using its service across the world, to equip the company to manage construction projects worldwide. UDA constantly seeks to improve the quality of its services and contemplates on the many feedbacks it receives from patrons worldwide. “In many ways, we consider this wide range of perspectives as a unique advantage into the hurdles our clients tackle on a daily basis,” says Michael Stevens, President of UDA Technologies.
