Exactal Corporation opens in Austin, Texas

Exactal is extremely pleased to announce our entry into the US market with a new office, Exactal Corporation, in Austin, Texas, and the hiring of Dulles Alexander as Vice President, Americas.

While Exactal has already seen great success overseas, we recognised an opening in the US market for a program that not only offered top-of-the-line BIM & 2D takeoff, but could also be used either with an in-built workbook, or in conjunction with Excel.

CostX® not only features integrated BIM & 2D takeoff, but also a live-linked workbook and integrated report writer, making it the faster, smarter and more accurate estimating program. Exactal also produces the CostX® Takeoff range, which includes BIM & 2D takeoff with an easy export to Excel, and this can be paired with CostXL, an Excel add-in with live-links to CostX® Takeoff. With this extended product range, Exactal produces a wide range of solutions to fit every user’s needs and budget.

Exactal already has several large clients in the USA, and with the opening of the new Exactal office there, this will be a great way to not only support existing clients, but also reach new prospects around the country. The office is based in Austin, Texas, a fast-paced technology hub, which is well-suited to the fast-paced development of the Exactal brand. The Austin office will be Exactal’s eighth worldwide office, and will ensure that there is now total worldwide support coverage for our clients over 24 hours of each day. The dedicated US phone number for the region is +1 (512) 768 8111.

Along with the opening of the office, we are also pleased to announce our new Vice President Americas, Dulles Alexander. Dulles will play an integral role in the formal introduction of Exactal products to the American market. He has a plethora of experience including 28 years in the estimating software sales and support industry. With his diverse understanding, previously representing various major construction estimating applications, he will be a key aspect in Exactal’s US office set-up.

Mark Kefford, CEO of Exactal, states “I am pleased to welcome Dulles to Exactal. His many years of experience in the construction software industry provides us with the leadership we were looking for before taking the important step of entering the US market. We now not only have a world class product but also a dedicated office for the North American market which completes our global sales and support network.”

In turn, Dulles Alexander says “I am extremely excited about the possibilities that lie ahead for Exactal in the US market. CostX has been adopted in over 70 countries worldwide and is a proven solution for the burgeoning American construction industry. My focus lies in growing the North American market; creating longstanding mutually beneficial relationships and aiding in the continuous development of the CostX platform.”
