At 4castplus, we’re helping contractors unleash their potential to drive profitability, quality and success.

Who We Are

4castplus is a progressive, innovative technology company that understands that software should be easy to use, rich in functionality, and with intelligent workflows that simplify the complexities of construction projects.  We started 4castplus back in 2009 with a goal to create a software solution aimed at mid-to-large contractors and owners to help them move from difficult, spreadsheet-based management of projects, into an organized and robust software solution targeted at keeping their projects on budget, on schedule and to maximize profitability.

Key to our mission was to create a system that is not only comprehensive and powerful, but a software system that is, above all, easy. Easy to use, easy to implement, easy to learn – and with a team that is easy and responsive to work with. We wanted to break the model that enterprise software requires lengthy and expensive implementations with endless user training. Our aim is to make our customers’ journey to transforming their business with critical technology both painless and cost-effective.

The Power of Listening

One of our most important values as an organization is our commitment to listening. Our customers are passionate about what they do, and they’re teeming with great ideas and critical feedback on real-world issues and scenarios. Listening to people is a vital part of how we grow our software. It’s not always easy of course, when there are thousands of people feeding us with suggestions – but we simply capture it, organize it, and prioritize it into our ongoing software updates.

Listening, along with careful software design, is all part of our fresh, modern approach to cloud software creation and delivery that has enabled us to generate tremendous value to our customers. Value that is delivered at a price that is aimed at midsized contractors.

Our Story

Our inspiration for starting 4castplus back in 2009 was the people we met from mid-size contractors and owners that had no options available to them for software solutions fit for their business.  The majority of construction software on the market was aimed at very large companies that ran mega projects. These companies have the time and financial means to roll-out big, cumbersome systems – but mid-to-large companies simply don’t.  So, even though many of them had large projects in their portfolio, they would have to resort to using spreadsheets, paper and some disconnected tools to manage these projects.

Construction projects can be very complex, with many moving parts and layers and can play out over several years. For contractors of any size, the successful delivery of construction projects is their primary revenue stream. It’s therefore critical that they apply significant rigor and governance on these projects to ensure they carefully manage the finances, activities, resources and documents so as to reduce risk and secure a successful outcome.  This was our inspiration – to provide a comprehensive, cloud-based software platform for this tier of company to execute on projects successfully, consistently and profitably.

Project Cost Management Software

4castplus has grown over the years to meet the diverse needs of both contractors and owners that face the complexities of a significant portfolio of projects both large and small.  As a multi-user, collaborative system, 4castplus provides a unified platform for all teams – from the jobsite to the back office – to access trusted information on all projects and programs.  Our philosophy is to connect everyone together with powerful tools and workflows, including project controls, project tracking, procurement, budgeting, forecasting, revenue management, and everything in-between. We want to give contractors the same level of sophistication in the technology they use for projects that the finance ERP provides for the accounting team. They need to apply the same rigor and governance on a $50m project as finance applies to a $50m company.
