CostX is a Finalist for the Innovation Alley Awards

Exactal is pleased to announce that CostX® 3.51, the current version of CostX®, has been announced as a finalist in the Innovation Alley People’s Choice Awards for DesignBUILD 2013.

DesignBUILD 2013 will be held in Sydney during the 8th-10th May at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre. The event is widely touted as one of the biggest and best construction expos in the country, featuring products and services from all areas of the industry. Over 250 exhibitors will be present at the show, including Exactal, who will be at stand H50 in the Technology section of the expo. Attendance is free for tradespeople and construction professionals who register online before the show starts; otherwise it is $20 at the door.

Innovation Alley is located at the entrance of the show and features 24 products selected as the ‘cream-of-the-crop’ from all exhibited products. CostX® 3.51’s inclusion in this selection is a testament to the flexibility of the product and shows it can work for construction and subcontracting companies both large and small. The Innovation Alley People’s Choice Awards is a new feature of the show just started this year, whereby people can select their preferred product of the 24 finalists, with the product that has the most votes at the end of the show taking home the award.

Of being named a finalist, Product Solutions Director Simon Lovegrove says “We are very pleased by the recognition given to CostX® regarding the nomination. Most of the other 23 finalists include building products, but CostX® 3.51’s nomination shows that nowadays, computer software tools are just as, if not more important than power tools or building materials used on-site. The nomination of CostX® 3.51 above other estimating software exhibited at the show also proves CostX® is a top-of-the-range solution”.
