“The smart contract technology that is integrated as part of BuildSort will reduce operational inefficiencies, save businesses time and money, and get money to the people who need it the most.”
BuildSort Co-Founder and CEO, Chris Dorian expressed that the “Block Engine is an incredible incubation program that gave us an ideal environment to develop our vision, design our technology, and build valuable connections.
“As a structural engineer of 17 years, I’ve personally spent at least 50% of my day tackling the tasks that the BuildSort solution is designed to automate. It’s built for the industry and professionals like me.
“Leaving no room for error in the building planning and approvals process will also see many deadly building hazards avoided, and cash flow problems faced by stakeholders in the supply chain resolved.
"The Block Engine program and the team at Blockchain Centre has been pivotal to all the participating teams. These ten intense weeks have actually translated to years of progress.
“BuildSort is proud to have been awarded the Best Blockchain Solution. This validation of our solution has given us tremendous energy and confidence in what we want to bring to the industry.
“The team at BuildSort is already hard at work developing the product and we're launching an ICO very soon."
The solution being built by BuildSort will utilise Blockchain technology for planning and building approvals that lead to the building supply chain. BuildSort aims to make the construction supply chain faster, automated, and transparent. Providing better cash flow and reducing risk for all its stakeholders.
