January 2016

Homebuilders face countless challenges heading into the New Year: changing market conditions, an imminent election, and the need to do more with less, just to name a few. As such, technology can serve as a tool to enable builders to overcome many business challenges. It is simply a matter of finding the right technology.

This is where the 2016 Constructech Top Products come into the equation. Launched initially in 2008 at the request of the readers, this award program is one of the most highly sought and reviewed when builders are looking for new technology headed into the upcoming year. Each year, Constructech magazine awards the ‘top’ technology with these awards. To be honored, the product must have good core functionality, as well as new features designed to help the homebuilder stay ahead of the curve.

Certainly there were some products that were just a bit too new to name to the list, as it was just being launched at the time of judging. This meant there wasn’t enough market response and information in order to do the thorough research and analysis needed to vet a Top Product. These products include AboutTime Technologies’ WorkMax and Autodesk’s BIM 360 Docs. We encourage you to keep an eye on these products.

The Constructech Top Products fall into two categories: New Products or Trusted Products.

On the following pages, there is a complete listing of all of this year’s residential Top Products, as well as expanded profiles and custom quotes for select companies. These profiles and quotes are written through the eyes of the Constructech editors, following in-depth research of the products in the space. Each expanded product profile includes the company’s complete address, URL, area of focus, type of award, custom quote, and in-depth analysis.

The hope is that you will be able to make technology selection decisions for 2016 based on the research and analysis provided on the following pages. In the end, the technology might just help you become more profitable in the months ahead.
