Visitors to the ElecoSoft® stand at Ecobuild will be able to see the award-winning Asta Powerproject® suite for project management, portfolio and resource management.

Visitors will also be able to see additional exciting offerings from the other ElecoSoft® businesses and gain insight into ElecoSoft’s market leading products developed and offered by their Swedish and German subsidiaries.

ElecoSoft’s vision for the group is to provide solutions for construction firms, contractors, architects and designers as well as self-builders, covering the entire construction process from project visualisation, design, cost estimation to site management.

Michael McCullen, Executive Chairman, Asta and Divisional Chief Executive, ElecoSoft® said: “There has never been a time when it has been more important to do more with fewer and more finite resources.  Delivering a truly sustainable model for construction requires not only that completed projects come in on time and on budget, it also requires that ongoing  operations of a building follow the same sustainability guidelines  up to its entire lifespan.”

Asta has a long pedigree of providing solutions to the construction industry, with its Asta Powerproject suite used by 90% of the top UK contractors and being involved in such high profile projects such as The Shard in London, The Reichstag in Berlin as well as being used for the rebuilding of Christchurch’s infrastructure in New Zealand.

Eleco has a strong international reach for its construction market software products, selling in over 43 countries via a global network of subsidiary offices in Sweden, Germany, and the UK as well as more than 38 distributors worldwide.

McCullen added: “We are looking forward to Ecobuild as a great opportunity to meet with visitors from throughout the industry sector and discuss how the range of products provided by Asta and across ElecoSoft® can help them improve their profitability and meet their objectives in these challenging times”.
