New acquisition for SmartUse solutions: K-Ops, a Quebec-based company serving the digital construction industry!

We are proud to know that one of our first partners, who at the time of its beginnings won a PitchTech Innovation building award to go to the Web Summit in Lisbon, now occupies the place it deserves in the technology market.

In recent years, a significant portfolio of solutions has been developed in Quebec.

The integration of K-Ops with SmartUse demonstrates once again the inventiveness and success of the ecosystem of Quebec companies that offer technological support to the construction industry. According to Stack, K-Ops’ construction management and collaboration solution will be officially integrated with SmartUse to “simplify collaboration between the office and the job site more than ever.” This is a great answer to the industry’s issues related to communication and collaboration.

Personally, we are delighted for K-Ops, which has always wanted to be an agent of change and has multiplied its means to do so. This company has been working with Batimatech for years and has always been in solution mode to improve the sector, both in terms of collaboration and productivity. Congratulations!

SmartUse and K-Ops Align as Canada’s Leading Construction Technology Duo

The construction industry’s top cloud-based software provider, STACK Construction Technologies, brings together Montréal-based ConTech leaders, SmartUse and K-Ops

Montréal, QUÉBEC: March 29, 2022 – STACK Construction Technologies announced today its acquisition of Montréal-based construction management solution K-Ops. By aligning this powerful tool with SmartUse (acquired by STACK in 2021), the company is bridging the gap between office and field in construction.

A leader in the construction technology space, SmartUse empowers contractors in the field with responsive digital plan viewing and markup, offline access, and comparison capabilities, creating a more efficient, collaborative job site. “Aligning with K-Ops is a natural fit for SmartUse,” said Dominic Sevigny, SmartUse Founder. “Strengthening our platform with another powerful Montréal ConTech company is the logical next step in delivering the tools and solutions contractors need to streamline the construction phase of a project.”

While SmartUse powers the field, K-Ops provides top-of-the-line construction management and collaboration software for construction professionals in the office. With unmatched field collaboration and process standardization, K-Ops allows contractors to simply create custom workflows, daily reports and RFIs. “We built K-Ops to be an agent for change in the industry, and we’re thrilled at the idea of combining its power with the SmartUse mobile app in the field,” said Hugo Brizard, President of K-Ops.

The blend of these two solutions gives a robust and more affordable option for customers compared to competitors in the space. “Our vision is to build the top platform for contractors – from preconstruction through construction – and the combination of SmartUse and K-Ops will create a comprehensive tool to help construction professionals build smarter,” said Phil Ogilby, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at STACK. “We are working hard to fully integrate these systems for a seamless experience for users. Just as SmartUse is integrated with STACK, K-Ops will soon be too.”
