The Lexicon Companies Select Dexter + Chaney's New Venture Product for Complete Construction Management

Seattle, August 14, 2012:  The Lexicon Companies, with operations based in Arkansas and Texas, has chosen Venture™ Project Collaboration Software as their solution for project document and communications management, complementing the company’s current use of Dexter + Chaney’s Spectrum® Construction Software for their accounting and business management needs.  Lexicon is comprised of numerous subsidiaries and divisions, many of which focus on steel mill construction, fabrication, and installation.

 “Communication is the number one issue we have; there are so many people and divisions working together,” said Brian Rutherford, vice president and controller.  “We needed to eliminate the communication gap that was occurring.”  After looking at several options, the company had started implementing a different product when they saw Venture at Dexter + Chaney’s 2012 Users’ Conference in Seattle.  “We were amazed at the progress that had been made since initially speaking with Venture’s development team one and a half years ago,” said Rutherford. “We knew Dexter + Chaney would continue updating Venture and keep going in the right direction to meet our needs.”

A function of the software that compelled Lexicon’s purchase was the document management capability.  “A requirement for any construction management software is document management,” said Rutherford.  “The less we have to print and the more we have a central repository, the more efficient we’ll be.”  With Lexicon already using Spectrum for their accounting needs, they knew they had a time-tested partnership with Dexter + Chaney.  “We have history with Dexter + Chaney, we can provide feedback and the company will respond to our needs,” said Rutherford.  “Bottom line, the software has got to perform, but it still comes back to people.  Dexter + Chaney has the products and the people behind them.”

“We’re extremely pleased that we could provide Lexicon with software that provides a complete solution for their needs on both the accounting and project management sides of their business,” said John Chaney, president and co-founder of Dexter + Chaney.  “We are committed to our customers’ growth and part of that commitment is providing innovative software that meets their complex business needs.”
