Fountain Hills, AZ – July 7, 2022 – JDM Technology Group announced today that it has acquired Deneb Software, a leading construction accounting and estimating software company headquartered in Fountain Hills, AZ. JDM is a global group of leading software providers for the architecture, engineering, construction, maintenance, and operations industries. The transaction closed on June 30, 2022, with approval from Deneb’s owner, Ken Lykins.
Deneb Software has been supplying proven construction accounting and estimating software to American construction companies for more than 35 years. Its robust cloud-based solution helps contractors increase profitability and improve efficiency at every stage of the job.
In a statement on the sale, Deneb owner Ken Lykins said, “My business model has always been 100% customer centric, so selling to a family company that also puts people first felt like the right decision.” One of JDM’s core philosophies is not to end of life software, ensuring its customers can always continue using their preferred software.
