Construction Monkey was formed to fill a need in the Construction Industry that has been forming for several years. The industry has become more dominated by General Contractors that self perform very little if any work and thus there are more subcontractors providing the real "construction" services on any given project. These subcontractors are burdened with the risk, performance, safety, quality, and management of the projects being built, while they are in a more competitive market space due to the nearly 800,000 specialty subcontractors in the US alone.
We realized that every subcontractor out there has their own niche markets and are true craftsmen in their respective fields, but not necessarily in the management of construction companies. Technology can help in the management and organization of the companies, but the companies that offered technology to Construction industries was limited due to the costs of the systems or were developed for the General Contractors that were managing others work. This is where we realized we could make a difference in the community and performance of subcontractors, by providing reasonably priced, easy solutions that subcontractor craftsman can utilize to ensure that their business and the projects that they build succeed.
The company was built utilizing technology developed for nearly a decade with the simple goal in mind to be easy, intuitive, and to help build a successful subcontracting business. The software was developed by subcontractors with the knowledge of very small businesses to large national firms. This is a unique position, since we did not have to relay the "specifications" of what we wanted the system to do to computer programmers, we just went ahead and built it to ensure that it worked like subcontractors work.
We would like for you to investigate our offering and compare it to other solutions out there. You will find that no one can beat our price or ease of use and that if you utilize our products your business will become more efficient, organized, and proffesional. This will enable you to focus on being the expert craftsman that you are.
