Pre-Qualification Management (PQM™), Latista and PlanSwift were recognized by the editors of Constructech in the Trusted Product category. The awards honor technology solutions that have demonstrated the greatest innovation geared toward the commercial market. The Trusted Product category is for solutions that have been in the market for at least three years. Winning products are selected based on several criteria, including the product's overall usefulness and uniqueness to the construction industry, as well as customer adoption and product growth, according to Constructech.
