Biosite acquires Construct Technology

Biosite is delighted to announce as part of its continued expansion that it has acquired Construct Technology, to further strengthen its range of services for the UK construction sector.

Construct Technology have developed a mobile technology that delivers time and costs savings for construction site managers. The Construct mobile app offers project managers specific project management and BIM collaboration tools. The app allows cross-site and multi–location real time information management which means everyone on or off-site is up to date, all of the time. The Construct app also keeps sites compliant, with a paperless audit trail that streamlines process milestones, sign offs and handovers.

“When our range of app-based products are combined with Biosite’s biometric access control system, it becomes one of the most powerful and comprehensive workforce management tools on the market today. Biosite is a perfect company to take our business to the next level and was the ideal choice to exploit our products with. Their own algorithm for fingerprint recognition is one of the best in the world and the fact that they also develop all their software and hardware in-house became a really exciting proposal for us.”

Since 2010, Biosite has been providing leading access control and workforce management solutions for construction sites. In more recent years, they have extended their product portfolio to give customers a complete integrated solution, to help manage, monitor and maximise safety and security on their sites. This new acquisition is another great asset to their already unrivalled product range.

This comes in the same year that Biosite acquired Mosaic Management Systems and was also identified as one of the fastest growing technology companies in the UK, by being listed on the prestigious Sunday Times Tech Track 100.

“Construct Technology was an obvious partner for our business, as better use of data and reducing paperwork will directly help the productivity of our construction sector customers. This acquisition will allow us to further improve our technology, helping us have a positive impact on safety for those working in the construction industry.”

Li Wang, managing director of Biosite
