Dexter + Chaney Software Selected by Heavy/Highway and Utility Contractor to Address Multiple Business Applications

Seattle, July 31, 2012:  D'Annunzio & Sons, Inc. has chosen Spectrum® Construction Software from Seattle-based construction software developer Dexter + Chaney ( to serve as their integrated software system for accounting, equipment, and document management.

With Spectrum, D’Annunzio & Sons will have a complete cloud-based construction management system that can be easily accessed from the field on any Internet-connected device and that will reduce the time and money spent on IT resources.  “Spectrum is a true web-based system; the Internet browser is all you need,” said Jeff D'Annunzio, project engineer.  “We have a lot of field offices and this makes it easy for them to connect, plus there’s no client software to install.” 

Having a single integrated system was of particular importance to D'Annunzio & Sons because of their integrated approach to business functions such as accounting, equipment management, and project management.  “Project management is important because it’s directly linked to accounting,” said D'Annunzio.  “Being able to easily import data into Spectrum and export it to Excel is very important to the accounting side of our business.  We liked the Excel-like format in Spectrum a lot better than the other programs we saw.” 

Another important reason for D'Annunzio & Sons’ selection of Spectrum was Dexter + Chaney’s partnership with heavy equipment expert Dr. Mike Vorster and the incorporation of his methods into their software.  “Our equipment manager was one of Dr. Vorster’s students in the first graduating class of Caterpillar University,” said D'Annunzio.  “The fact that Spectrum’s equipment package ties into Dr. Vorster’s philosophies was definitely a plus.”

The integration within Spectrum also extends to document management, a key benefit for office personnel.  “Spectrum Document Imaging translates to significant potential to streamline our current document management system,” said D'Annunzio.  “With Document Imaging, you can see any related job information without having to rely on files and hard copies.” 

“It’s very gratifying to have our product selected by a company with the reputation for excellence in heavy/highway and utility construction that D'Annunzio & Sons has,” said John Chaney, Dexter + Chaney president and co-founder.  “Their need for web-based technology and a complete suite of integrated applications fit perfectly with what we provide in the latest release of Spectrum Construction Software.”
