With a credible team from world renowned institutions, we are leading the way in transforming the way buildings and Infrastructure comes to life.

Better decisions happen in construction when you have better context, without context stakeholders are unable to see the right information, at the right time to make confident and quick choices. That's why we created Slate, a Virtual Digital Assistant that helps you identify and evaluate information in your business so that you can make better decisions, save time and money and improve project outcomes.

Our mission at Slate is to help improve each construction professional impact construction productivity by revealing the timely context that helps them make earlier, better decisions. Slate’s “Digital Assistant'' uses machine learning and AI to execute multi-dimensional analysis across internal and external data sources. This includes public data such as weather, labor and traffic with the dark data locked in silos and non-integrated systems within their own and sub-contractor organizations.
