Over 25 years of industry excellence

The Causeway journey

Since our founding in 1999, we’ve been at the forefront of digital innovation in the construction, maintenance and infrastructure sector. Though times and demands have changed, our mission has always been to streamline complex processes and enhance productivity for businesses, teams and individuals in the industry.

Our journey is marked by significant milestones, including strategic acquisitions and partnerships that have expanded our expertise and global footprint.

Today, thousands of businesses worldwide rely on Causeway for comprehensive, cutting-edge solutions that empower them to achieve greater efficiency, accuracy, and profitability.

Our major company milestones


Phil Brown, our founder and CEO, begins the Causeway journey with a visionary goal: to create software technologies that will connect the entire construction lifecycle. This ambition was not just about technological innovation, but about fundamentally changing the construction industry for the better. To make it more efficient, productive, and connected.


We officially launch our Causeway Project Accounting (CPA) software, setting a new standard for managing commercial operations in the construction industry. This platform was designed to help construction companies oversee budgets, costs, and project planning more effectively, and marked a significant advancement in construction management technology. Today, Causeway Project Accounting helps manage over 1350 construction projects per year.


We officially launch our Causeway Tradex e-invoicing solution which has become a cornerstone for digital construction. Causeway Tradex was designed to allow supply chain partners to reduce costs, save time and improve payment processing by sending and receiving electronic documents such as orders, invoices, dispatch notes and payment reconciliations.  Through a single platform connection, buyers and suppliers can reach all their trading partners. Today, joining the Causeway Tradex community means joining thousands of connected construction buyers and suppliers who are exchanging millions of transactions worth billions in contract value. 


We significantly expand our footprint in India by opening a new office in Bangalore. This move leveraged our existing research, development, and innovation centre to strengthen our capability to meet the expanding demands of the built environment sector.

Yotta's expertise in local authority asset management, combined with our contractor job and resource management, streamlines processes and improves data flow between stakeholders, marking a significant advancement in Causeway's digital integration strategy.


We acquire Reference Point, a leading provider of workforce competency and authority-to-work systems. This acquisition, the third since the significant investment by Five Arrows in 2021, reinforced our strategy to digitise construction and maintenance processes.
