What is CIPO's history?

The CIPO construction software platform has been responsibly serving construction owners for more than 10 years. CIPO Cloud Software Inc. was officially launched in 2020 as a spinoff from a process industry consulting and services leader, IT Vizion. 

The CIPO platform, built on top of the Microsoft Cloud, culminates industry insight and knowledge of what would help owners manage their teams and programs more effectively. It offers a comprehensive construction and project management solution adaptable to any size organization, no matter their business process complexity. We built the software on an intuitive and user-friendly platform, making it easy for any team or organization.

With its ability to connect teams, reduce manual steps, and provide real-time analytics, CIPO has become the go-to solution for streamlining construction and project management workflows and a challenger to the status quo. 

CIPO was built for construction owners.
