Burlington, MA (PRWEB) June 26, 2008
Vela Systems, a developer of mobile field software for the AECO (architecture, engineering, contractor and owner) industry, today announced that it has been named to Constructech Magazine's sixth annual list of "Hottest Companies" for the commercial construction market. In 2007, Vela Systems was named a "Company to Watch."
Constructech's Hottest Companies Awards are open to technology, building automation, or automated home technology vendors. Participating companies are judged by the Constructech editorial staff based on a range of criteria, including a description of the company's product and/or service, significant accomplishments in the past year, the growth record for the past three years, noteworthy customer wins, and new products impacting the construction marketplace. The July issue of Constructech will feature the commercial winners of the "Hottest Companies" for 2008.
"The winning companies this year bring strong solutions to the table for their customers," said Peggy Smedley, editorial director of Constructech Magazine. "Every year Constructech's editorial team becomes more discerning, determined to give the readers a look at the best of the best that construction technology has to offer. These companies define 'hot' this year and make up what could be the most solid list yet."
Vela Systems is the leading developer of mobile software that automates field processes for the AECO industry. Vela Systems' software, which has been used on more than 300 projects from Las Vegas to Dubai, replaces the notebooks and tubes of drawings traditionally used on construction sites with specialized software installed on rugged Tablet PCs. Vela Systems puts entire file cabinets of documents that were formerly stored in trailers at the fingertips of people in the field. Vela Systems' modules accomplish specific tasks such as materials tracking, field reports, punch lists, owner walkthroughs and safety inspections.
"About 80 percent of construction dollars are spent in the field," said Tim Curran, CEO of Vela Systems. "By automating processes on the job site, Vela Systems is addressing the No. 1 impact to productivity and the bottom line, which is revolutionizing the way in which the AECO industry does business. We're proud to have been named as one of Constructech 'Hottest Companies' for 2008."
