Dexter + Chaney, a cloud-based construction ERP software developer, has named Cascade Drilling/Technical Services its 2016 Innovator Award winner. The award, which honors a client company that has significantly grown or improved its operations through utilizing Spectrum Construction Software, is presented annually at Dexter + Chaney’s Connect Users’ Conference.

“Cascade is incredibly honored to receive the Innovator Award,” says Cascade Chief Financial Officer Tyler Kopet. “Our partnership with Dexter + Chaney has made a significant impact on the way we manage data throughout our business. Cascade looks forward to the continued success and growth of our business supported by Spectrum.”

As it has grown, Cascade has relied on Spectrum as its complete construction ERP and business management software solution. Spectrum’s web-based platform has helped Cascade significantly streamline and automate operations, while connecting its office staff and field staff in real-time exchanges of data and project information. The company credits Spectrum with tying its multiple operations and employees together in a uniform management platform, as well as being able to easily onboard its new acquisitions.

“Cascade has a spectacular story to tell with its growth in recent years,” says Dexter + Chaney President Norbert Orth. “The company’s dedication to a growth strategy that engages leading-edge technology on a daily basis and commits to improving its team members’ processes and work environments is why it is more than deserving of our 2016 Innovator Award.”

Also honored as Innovator Award finalists during Dexter + Chaney’s 20th Annual Connect Users’ Conference were Gilbert, Ariz.-based Hunter Contracting and Minneapolis-based Adolfson & Peterson Construction.

Each year, Dexter + Chaney’s Connect Users’ Conference pulls together hundreds of clients, exhibitors, prospects, guests and Dexter + Chaney employees for educational courses, networking and learning opportunities. This year — the 20th anniversary of the conference — featured two days of main-conference educational classes, product roundtables, one-on-one training sessions, development and integration partner exhibits, networking events and keynote speeches from CEO and co-founder John Chaney and award-winning speaker Connie Podesta.

“Like Cascade, Dexter + Chaney has enjoyed its own significant growth over the past few years,” Orth says. “We’re pleased to share that growth with our clients by continually reinvesting in Spectrum. Our Connect Users’ Conference, is just another of the many ways we work directly with our clients to provide them with the tools they need to get the most out of Spectrum.”
