CLEVELAND — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 19, 2010 — In 1985, Foundation Software founder Fred Ode started his business with one product and one goal: to build a company that would be a dominant force in the construction accounting software industry. Twenty-five years later, the company’s flagship product, FOUNDATION for Windows, is serving the needs of more than 2,200 U.S. contractors.
“In the mid-1980s, I never would have predicted how fast nor how far technology would change the construction industry,” Ode said. “I am proud and humbled that our company has played a key role in helping contractors achieve new levels of job cost efficiency and greater control over the financial side of their businesses.”
With expertise in the field of construction, Foundation Software continues to evolve the business and its technology to address the most pressing needs of contractors in an increasingly-competitive industry. The most recent enhancements and product launches include:
“We have succeeded by focusing on a business model that emphasizes three essential elements: product, company and technology,” Ode said. “Unlike many of our competitors that have grown through buy-outs and acquisitions, Foundation Software’s growth is entirely organic.”
