Press release issued by CDP partner, Dexter + Chaney

SEATTLE, June 26, 2012:Construction management software provider Dexter + Chaney announced that their Spectrum® Construction Software is now fully compatible with tablet computing platforms. This announcement follows the recent release of Spectrum version 14, the industry’s first construction management software to support a complete browser-based user interface.

“Use of tablets and other mobile devices is accelerating in the construction industry,” said John Chaney, president and co-founder. “In our redesign of Spectrum to support browser-based cloud deployment, we made a conscious decision to build a user interface that worked as well on a tablet in the field as it did on a workstation in the office.”

Tablet users sacrifice none of the functionality of Spectrum’s complete suite of construction software modules. “Our tablet-friendly interface is a natural extension of our move to web-based technology,” said Geoffrey Falk, Spectrum Product Manager. “Spectrum users can access their software from any Internet-connected device. So supporting tablets, one of the fastest-growing computing platforms, became a priority for our development team.” According to the recent tablet sales forecast published by Forrester Research, tablet sales in the U.S. will grow to 44 million in 2015, surpassing laptop sales by about 5 million units.

Users can access Spectrum software from any connected device, and configure their screens for optimal use on the different devices they use. “All of our screens were designed with the dimensions of the most popular tablet platforms in mind,” said Chaney. “The ability to expand, collapse, and resize windows let users experience Spectrum the way they want to, anywhere, on any device.”
