Readie Construction, a £150M turnover business, which specialises in new and refurbishment industrial, retail and commercial projects, plan to use WebContractor to help support the continued growth of their business.
After attending the successful event that we hosted at Canary Wharf earlier in the year, Jessica McCarthy, the newly appointed Finance Director, and Lee Chalk, Head of Commercial, reviewed WebContractor, and quickly recognised that the system would help provide the transparency and control that is required to manage their projects effectively. Readie Construction has quickly established an enviable reputation in the industry, and they acknowledge that WebContractor will help in facilitating good relationships with their subcontractors, whilst providing the internal control they require, as they continue to grow. We look forward to working with them.
