2020’s Top Construction Software FrontRunners

By: on January 8, 2021

2020 is officially behind us, but its impact is still being felt. Digitization is accelerating, and businesses are leaning on new tools and technology in an increasingly digital world. Yet, for companies seeking construction software, there are so many products available and so little time to adapt.

Wouldn’t it be easier if there were a shortlist of the most consistently reliable and user-approved construction solutions on the market today?

Yes, it would. That’s why we created this list of 2020’s top construction software provider FrontRunners. You have to know the past to understand the present, as they say—and understanding the best of 2020 will help position your business for a successful 2021.

Here’s the gist: We looked at all the vendors that placed in our construction FrontRunners reports released over the course of 2020. Then we ranked each vendor based on the number of lists its product offerings appeared in. In the event that two or more vendors tied, we listed them alphabetically (read our full FrontRunners methodology here).

The end result? Your guide to the year’s top construction software, which you can find below. Though each company on our list has multiple product offerings, we’ve pulled reviews information from the top product for each to shed some light on how users feel about these software platforms.
