“Digitise or Die” warns construction software giant Viewpoint

Viewpoint is warning contractors that they must “digitise or die”.

The stark message came as the software giant launched its Viewpoint Team project management package in the UK.

EMEA Vice President Steve Spark said: “Viewpoint Team is a powerful but easy-to-use toolset for planning, coordinating and achieving the tight project controls, data flows and governance that project managers have been asking for.

“We’re helping companies focus on actually managing their projects and making critical decisions in real time rather than trying to navigate a sea of paperwork, coordinating multiple communication tools and struggling to make sense of stale project data.”

“You only need to look at the huge increase in BIM adoption over the past eight years and our Government’s legally binding commitment to BIM Level 2 to see the direction of travel – contactors must digitise project management or fail.

“Almost two-thirds of construction projects are not built on time and almost one-third of projects come in over budget.

“However, many contractors operate on such wafer-thin margins that they need only suffer from a handful of problem projects to start experiencing financial difficulty.

“As BIM adoption becomes the norm, contractors who do not adopt digital construction will die a slow death.”

Viewpoint Team’s dashboards help managers and users prioritise their work while the portal enables quick navigation to Viewpoint for Projects and Viewpoint Field View.

By bringing everyone involved in a construction project together through a comprehensive, easy-to-use and collaborative platform, Viewpoint Team keeps entire project teams up-to-date and accountable at every step of the process.

It creates a permanent audit trail of “who did what and when” on key tasks such as RFIs, site instructions, technical queries, daily diaries and action items.

Smart project control and governance tools are built into Viewpoint Team for process transparency across the project ecosystem.

Because Viewpoint Team is designed to be clear and simple to use, sub-contractors and individual project participants can use the system quickly and accurately – without extensive training – from any browser, or mobile application accessed via phone or tablet.

Viewpoint Chief Product Officer Matt Harris said: “By connecting our clients’ office, team and field operations with software solutions that give real-time answers that enable real-time decisions and true project transparency, we’re doing what no other construction management software company can do right now.

“We are helping contractors modernise their operations by streamlining processes to realise untapped profit potential, and we’re excited to share that vision.”
