The Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) recognized The BP Group with the E. Robert Kent Award for their development of their PIPES system, standing for process, information, portal, enabling, and success. It is a an innovative management and technology tool designed to streamline processes, for HVAC specialists.

John Fanneron, President of BP Group, was very clear about the need to utilize the latest and most effective and efficient technology to improve their systems. “We need to use current technology and organization structure to better our process and delivery,” says Fanneron.

It's no accident that Fanneron turned to BidTracer's Construction Management Software.

Internally and externally, we have been able to eliminate duplicative processes, we’ve increased accountability, which has been real big, which has assisted us greatly in competing in today’s market,” says John Fanneron, President of BP Group.
