The Construction Marketplace, By Construction Industry Insiders
Construction needs a marketplace. The procurement process is inefficient. The origin of Configure is rooted in the difficulties of integrating fragmented supplier data into the processes of contractors. The industry needs better matching of products to scope. The future requires better data, and we are building it.
