From Concrete to Code | Sean McCreanor at Assignar

There are entrepreneurs who identify a problem in a marketplace and recognize an opportunity—and then there are those who feel that problem personally and need a solution.

Sean McCreanor was one of those people. He started a construction company in Australia and was unable to find a software product that would offer the mobility and functionality he needed. So he founded his own tech startup, Assignar, which offers a project management solution specially tailored for the construction industry.

On this edition of UpTech Report, Sean talks about the ways in which this software addresses the particular needs of the construction industry and he discusses the challenges of selling a tech product in a marketplace that’s often twenty years behind the times.
