West Palm Beach-based Verdex Construction announces that its construction technology manager, Tiffanie Artigas, has won the national 2021 Groundbreaker of the Year award by Procore Technologies. Procore’s prestigious Groundbreaker Awards celebrate the individuals, projects, and companies that impact and drive progress using its construction technology. Through Procore, a leading provider of construction management software, Tiffanie has helped Verdex work more efficiently, communicate better and build faster.
Verdex had been using Procore Technologies software to manage projects since the company was launched, and as the company grew dramatically over the past six years, training an ever-growing workforce on the system became a constant challenge. Artigas was initially training staffers while on-the-job in her role as assistant project manager. She became so adept that Verdex promoted her to manager of construction technology, a new position where she could focus on training staff and maximizing the many features of Procore that would streamline operations and communicate project updates to clients. In her new role, Artigas created a formal Training Center, organized two-day company-wide trainings and established a very successful training program for construction Small Business Enterprises (SBEs) for the Office of Diversity at Palm Beach County Schools. After launch of the Training Center, Verdex realized a 45-percent increase in Procore usage among its team.
“Our internal and external training program and expanded use of Procore and have paid numerous dividends in how everyone manages our projects and communicates,” said Verdex Construction President Rex Kirby. “Tiffanie’s leadership in training our staff, owners, subcontractors and SBEs has made Verdex more efficient and productive from top to bottom. She is truly deserving of this national recognition.”
In just over five years, Verdex has earned numerous awards and prestigious industry recognition, including being selected as a finalist for 2021 Business of the Year by the South Florida Business Journal, finalist for 2021 Business of the Year by the Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches, and being selected as a GrowFL “Company to Watch”.
