Welcome to our first post in The LiveCosts Blog.
We have been working really hard over the past few months in preparation for the launch of the LiveCosts project management software and the new website. With the software entering its final stages of testing and our new website live, we have decided to keep everybody updated on the latest news here on our new blog.
Don’t panic! We haven’t lost sight of our core business and we are still working towards being the fastest growing, highest performing Construction Cost Control Software in Ireland and the UK.
With a construction software such as LiveCosts, we have had to do extensive research on many construction subjects over the past 2 years to make sure we had the best solution on the market. With the plans we have in place for the future of LiveCosts, this research wont stop. So we have decided to share some of these subjects & insights with our followers, so you can be kept informed of new trends in the industry.
These are the core subjects we will be researching and posting on.
A bit about us
All of the LiveCosts founding team have an extensive construction background, here’s a little about us.
I am a carpenter by trade and moved through the ranks to project management over the years. I have been lucky enough to have travelled the world with my trade, and have learned a lot along the way. I started working for myself in 2006 as carpentry sub-contractor and have managed for many large building companies through the years, as well as managing my own building company. LiveCosts was born through our experience of trying to improve profitability and solve simple day to day issues we all have on our projects.
Also a carpenter by trade, but a few years younger than myself, Ciaran was only qualified when our economy hit the rocks. He was Australia bound and only returned after a 9 year stint. Ciaran gathered the experience on the other side of the counter at a large building material supplier. Myself and Ciaran set up a successful niche contracting business in Perth and started to take an interest in Construction software to aid with the day to day of the business. Ciaran has been working on LiveCosts for the last 2 years.
Another carpenter by trade, Kenny has been a business partner of mine in some previous contracting businesses. Ken has also managed at Project management level and achieved 3rd level qualifications in site management. Kenny entered the construction industry at 15, so he understands the pain well!
