TradePower, the leading B2B digital marketplace and supply chain solution for the construction industry, has partnered with software provider Dexter + Chaney to integrate the company's desktop-based software and Web-procurement services into its Forefront Construction Management Software product, allowing users to connect through Forefront to its digital marketplace.

Customers will gain access to the thousands of construction industry suppliers and contractors that participate in TradePower's marketplace. This will enable users to buy supplies, obtain pricing and determine availability of construction materials, maximizing supply chain efficiency.

TradePower enables real-time transactions between suppliers and contractors, empowering users to research, request and purchase construction materials through their medium of choice - the desktop or the Web. Unlike existing construction industry exchanges that target owners, architects and general contractors, TradePower is focused on the supplier and contractor relationship, where the majority of transactions occur.
