PORTLAND, OREGON – 28 November 2017 – Staff at BIM and collaborative construction software supplier, Viewpoint, are celebrating after winning a prestigious industry award for the seventh successive year.

The Newcastle-based software company won the Collaboration Software of the Year award for the seventh time at the Construction Computing Awards and also scooped a second accolade on the night after winning Mobile Product of the Year award for its digital construction platform Field View.

The news comes just weeks after Viewpoint reported record financial results.

Boosted by a 99-percent customer retention rate, Viewpoint saw sales grow 30-percent year-on-year from £11.5m in 2015 to £15.1m in 2016. Over the same time period Viewpoint recorded a £2.5m profit in its financial year ending December 2016 compared to a loss of £395,000 in 2015.

"Winning both of these awards is a fantastic accolade for Viewpoint," said Steve Spark, Vice President of Business Development at Viewpoint. "Given that they are voted for by the people who use our products day in and day out, it’s great to get validation that we are succeeding in our mission to make our customers lives easier and their organisations more successful."
