Last year, commercial construction contractors performed over $544B worth of work.  However, they often had to wait months for their money. Delayed payments can lead to work stops and project delays at best. Contractors can be bankrupted at worst. Construction companies build our homes, offices, and infrastructure. They are a critical part of the American economy and deserve better software.
