Check out our biggest achievements and proudest moments of 2019!

For Our Customers:

24/7 Customer Support
We launched 24/7 Contruent customer support in 2019! Now, customers can get the support they need even on weekends and holidays. Your projects are precious to you, so they are precious to us!

Online Privacy Compliance
Last year was a big year for online data privacy, and we took steps to fully abide by GDPR policies. Now with the fast-approaching California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) deadline coming up on January 1st, we have taken the necessary steps to ensure compliance.

We continued to host quarterly Contruent Enterprise training courses in Houston, Texas. These courses are aimed at helping our customers and even potential customers get the best out of their Contruent software investment. They teach attendees the fundamentals of Contruent as well as Cost Management. Be on the lookout for our next 3-day Contruent training course; spaces are limited, so sign up early!

We also offer Contruent on-site training for teams, too; where our trainers come to you and go over various topics and modules in a more tailored manner and in relation to your projects and programs.
