July 11, 2012 – Cincinnati, OH–Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America and iSqFt, the nationâ€™s leading provider of commercial preconstruction news and online tools announced that they have signed a three-year deal, renewing their relationship well into 2015.
â€śI donâ€™t think the importance of the AGCâ€™s role in our success can be overstated,â€ť says iSqFt President and CEO Dave Conway. â€śBeing selected, from over 200 contenders, as their strategic partner, put us on the map back in 2001. That was huge for us.â€ť
AGC of Americaâ€™s chief executive officer Steve Sandherr said of the associationâ€™s partnership with iSqFt, â€śThis partnership allows us to provide even more value to our members across the country. That is because our members know that iSqFt will give them what they need to stay competitive.â€ť
Both Conway and Sandherr say that their partnership has been mutually beneficial, and Conway goes on to make the point that history matters. â€śEleven years may not sound like a really long time, but back then, this was a brand-new idea. Everyone–and I do mean everyone–was still shipping and borrowing paper plans. [The AGC] believed in what we were doing and helped us move the industry forward. Thatâ€™s a really big deal.â€ť
The deal between the two companies will extend their relationship to 2015, and ensure that both will continue to benefit.
