First Commercial Release of the DESTINI Suite for Integrated Project Preconstruction

Data ManagerEstimatorProfilerBeck Technology, Ltd. announces the release of DESTINI Profiler 2015 1.0, DESTINI Estimator 2015 1.1, and DESTINI Data Manager 1.1. The three releases are part of the DESTINI suite of products and will allow users to take projects from the Macro-level to the Micro-level of detail while providing cost and information to manage projects more effectively.

Beck Technology was built on the foundation of providing solutions that enable better, more informed decisions, throughout the life of capital projects. Our technology is called DESTINI, an acronym for Design ESTimation INtegration Initiative. This release allows for a seamless transition from DESTINI Profiler (preconstruction and conceptual design software) to DESTINI Estimator (lightweight, robust estimating software) supported by DESTINI Data Manager (a database organizer). “We have a vision that by bringing more clarity to the preconstruction process our customers can make better more informed project decisions,” said Michael Boren, Director of Research and Development at Beck Technology. “The DESTINI suite release is a major milestone that enables our customers to establish project targets at the outset of a project and then manage the project against these targets thus providing a more collaborative and information rich platform that will result in better quality projects, delivered with more predictable costs and schedules.”

“The industry is undergoing a lot of change,” said Stewart Carroll, Chief Operations Officer at Beck Technology. “Project design direction, budget and schedule are being locked in earlier and earlier. Innovative firms are utilizing technology to collaborate at the inception of capital projects and then manage the project as it evolves to ensure that design quality, cost, and schedule are maintained. I am thrilled that the DESTINI suite will provide clarity to our users enabling them to make better more informed decisions throughout the life of their projects resulting in higher quality projects delivered in a more predictable manner.”
