DADO was founded by and for construction professionals. DADO's team built DADO in Stanley Black and Decker’s StanleyX incubator, launching the company in 2018. After hundreds of hours of interviews and jobsite visits with contractors, the DADO team learned that there was one problem impacting construction project productivity more than anything else: fast, reliable and efficient document access. Office teams often had access to tools and documentation that the field didn’t, creating a digital divide on the site. DADO was created to end the digital divide between project teams in the office and field and give everyone the same fast, reliable access to project documents, across any platform.
