About us

Introducing our story, business
and our leadership team

Our story

We believe, that for too long, subcontractors have lacked the tools to manage contracts efficiently, whilst maintaining clear visibility of project performance during construction. Our industry is notorious for its use of disjointed systems, out-dated processes, and complicated spreadsheets – and we’ve seen first-hand how this leads to major inefficiencies, inadequate control and potential risk.

We knew there was a better way, which is why we developed Chalkstring.

Designed to meet the needs of specialist subcontractors, we’ve made it easy to manage today’s fast-paced and complex projects profitably. Our cloud-based platform provides a framework to manage and control project financials, resulting in increased efficiency and more profitable business growth.
