ITASCA, Ill. — Last week, at a technology conference at the Westin Chicago Northwest hotel, Constructech magazine awarded Clark Builders Group (CBG) with a Gold Vision Award for its innovative use of technology to streamline business operations. CBG, the nation's fourth largest multifamily home builder, was recognized for the successful implementation of a web-based photo management system and project information database, called iDAM, which the firm leveraged to create a uniform, company-wide system of file storing, sharing, and presentation. This year's award marks the eighth consecutive year CBG has been honored by the publication.

"The 2008 Vision Awards winners exemplify the drive and innovation necessary to be successful in the construction industry," said Mike Carrozzo, editor of Constructech magazine. "As the impressive group of previous Vision Award winners has done, these companies have chosen to improve their businesses by implementing leading-edge technology solutions."

iDAM, a web-based digital asset management tool developed by Maryland-based Interface Multimedia, allows users to quickly and easily access content via a simple online search and download interface. CBG customized the software to automatically generate printed materials and statistics for use in presentations to potential clients, ensuring company-wide consistency and accuracy. The software also populates the company's public Web site, enabling a streamlined process for real-time updates.

"The implementation of the iDAM software has simplified our everyday communications operations," says Stephanie Shum Anderson, director of corporate communications. "This tool provides manageable and dependable access to our entire digital file database across all eight offices 24 hours a day."

Constructech magazine, the host of the Constructech Vision Awards, employs a panel of experts from across the construction and technology industries. The panel examines each entry for its individual technological merits, as well as the success, innovation, and benefits of its implementation.
