FutureWorx Pty Ltd is the exclusive authorised distributor in Australia for software and services developed by Construction Computer Software.
Since 1982, Construction Computer Software has focused on developing and delivering software solutions specifically designed for the construction, building and mining industries. It is this this tight focus that has enabled CCS to develop solutions with such an excellent fit to the needs of its customers.
A key strategy that has been very effective for CCS is its policy of employing construction industry professionals with many years of experience in the industry. This also facilitates another key strategy: encouraging interaction between users and system designers. This interaction helps ensure that the company’s solutions stay abreast of user requirements and industry trends.
In 2014, after more than 30 years as a privately held organisation, CCS was acquired by EOH Holdings Ltd, a major IT services company listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. EOH is the largest provider of enterprise applications, technology, outsourcing, cloud and managed services in South Africa. The acquisition provides CCS with significantly greater levels of resourcing and facilitates CCS’s expansion into new territories.
FutureWorx is part of the worldwide group of CCS distributors and offices, located in Australia, New Zealand, USA, UK, Europe, Southern Africa, India and the Middle East.
CCS has more than 14,000 users in over 50 countries including many of the world’s largest construction companies.

In 2016, FutureWorx Pty Ltd, headed by Dave Vink, became the exclusive distributor of CCS products in Australia. The focus has been on building closer relationships with our many customers and their hundreds of users.
Customers range from project consultants, small businesses and government departments, right through to Tier One construction companies, including LendLease, Downer, John Holland, Laing O’Rourke and WBHO.
