HingePoint's CEO, Bryce Finnerty, was recently quoted in the article "Unleashing Document Access to Unlimited Users" on Engineering.com. Finnerty gave insight on BIM 360 Docs and how they played a role preventing errors and fostering their client relationships.

In this case, Finnerty was meeting with a client at Starbucks. BIM 360 Docs allowed him to access 3D models to share with his client.

"When we do BIM models for our clients, we deliver them here on mobile apps,” said Finnerty. “While at a Starbucks, I was able to drill down [and] use the tool right there to facilitate a meeting with an important client. This is a very easy way to show off your designs and your work and collaborate on your data.”

Finnerty was able to determine that the source of the problem was the metal fabricator, which veered off course during the project.

"The moral of the story is that while everything was connected to the BIM model, everything was going great,” said Finnerty. “The first person to get disconnected from the BIM model made the first big mistake."

The Great Game of Business is designed to show how an open-book management system is used to build rapid financial results and company culture. The full-day workshop kicked off with a keynote by Michael Kiolbassa, president of Kiolbassa Smoked Meats. Kiolbassa implemented The Great Game process in 2014 to save the family business that was struggling to make a profit. In fact, at one point in August and September of 2013, they “lost more money in two months than we made in most years we had been in business”.  Now, just three years after adopting The Great Game Process, Michael's company is thriving and on track to hit a target of $100 million in revenue by 2019! The keynote was followed by an on-site visit to the Kiolbassa factory, where we sat in on a live "Huddle" to see Great Game practices first-hand, and a Q&A with employee practitioners. The last part of the workshop was the interactive session, where the teams competed in the coveted "Mini Game challenge" and put the days’ worth of professional development and learning into action. Teams were challenged with building a short-term activity designed to correct a weakness or pursue an opportunity in the company. The requirement was to have an end goal with a time-frame, scoreboard, and reward for winning. HingePoint’s game was named “A Steak in the Outcome” with the reward being a steak dinner for the team at Ruth’s Chris if the criteria are met. The competition was very tight, making a difficult decision for the judges. After a lengthy deliberation, the results were announced, awarding HingePoint the victor!

“Knowing there are only a handful of businesses that get the opportunity to participate in this event every year makes you feel honored to be in attendance and learn with so many other intelligent professionals. The fact that HingePoint captured 1st place in the [Mini Game] challenge was a truly unforgettable experience.”

-HingePoint Marketing Consultant, Jacob Steele

By the end of the day, the HingePoint team left with the knowledge of how to get started with open-book management and unique skills to continue pushing HingePoint forward in the years to come!

Hoping to have found a solution for “frictionless" job sites with free-flowing communication, Procore held their third annual Groundbreak Conference in Austin, Texas this week, and announced Procore Construction OS. The new OS allows other companies—even those that appear to be competitors—to integrate with its more open APIs. "We are really dedicated to our openness strategy. A lot of people would say Blue Beam is a competitor but we see them as a partner,” said Bassem Hamdy, EVP Marketing and Enterprise Strategy at Procore. "We want them here and we want them to integrate because that gives our clients freedom of choice."

Procore’s openness strategy is the reason they have made Construction OS and allowed any company to integrate with it. But the company is hoping to pitch the platform as more than just an open API. Construction OS is the entire ecosystem of new features and insights created from other companies' applications that are connected to Procore. "Construction OS is basically our statement and our signal to the market that we are and want to be the platform that powers construction,” said Brandon Terry, Vice President of Product at Procore Technologies. "It is not only the underpinnings that powers the Procore products but it’s also what helps us connect and build integrations with all of our partners." Construction OS is designed to serve users and improve the build process through a variety of important enhancements, including new reporting and visualization tools; access to approximately 100 apps in the App Marketplace; a newly launched developer portal; and the ability to securely integrate, store, and manage your projects within one platform. Josh Kanner, Founder and CEO of Smartvid.io, has the second most leveraged application in Procore's App Marketplace. Smartvid.io makes it easier to manage photos and video by tagging digital assets automatically and through machine learning. "As a company they have taken this very open attitude towards partnerships which has been great for us,” Kanner said. "They understand that they need to have partners that will help expand the ecosystem of what they do.” Terry said as they continue to improve construction project management and add new core tools to their platform, they are going to rely on other companies to give them more features and benefits for customers. “The primary benefit for us and the industry with this operating approach is it doesn’t hinge wholly on Procore,” Terry said. Procore is hoping Construction OS will also be an equalizer. In the past construction companies were forced to buy all solutions from one vendor. But Procore hopes to give construction companies more choices. "It’s time for construction to have freedom of choice,” Bassem said. Procore also announced two new products. Procore Construction Financials is a robust job costing solution that connects the field and the head office, providing businesses with a central location to monitor the financial health of their projects in real time. Field teams can track contracts and change orders, payment applications, forecasts, and potential cost impacts – this combined data rolls up to the head office and gives company executives access to actionable insights that can be leveraged to accurately forecast and make data-driven business decisions. Construction Financials serves as a single source of truth for project financials – eliminating double entry, mitigating risk, and streamlining monthly reporting with key stakeholders. Procore Quality & Safety consists of easy-to-use tools that help customers baseline, identify trends, and improve on their quality and safety process. With input from industry leaders and customer feedback placed at the highest priority throughout the product development process, this solution was manufactured to gather valuable data, just by people doing their job. As a result, this data helps customers identify trends that pinpoint their strengths and weaknesses across a single project or whole portfolio. Procore dashboards enable teams to act upon insights that can lead to the introduction of better processes and improved overall quality and safety culture.   HingePoint 2300 McDermott Road STE 200-235, Plano, TX 75025 (214) 301-0000 www.hingepoint.com HingePoint covers the AEC Industry and is the author of The AEC Industry 4.0 Report and the Autodesk Industry Report 2017.

This year’s event brought over 2,300 riders to Plano/Collin County and generated more than $133,000 in gross revenue for City House. The band for the 25th annual event was Infinite Journey, (a Journey Tribute Band) and it certainly has been an exciting and collaborative journey these twenty-five years! During the past 25 years the Collin Classic Bike Rally has garnered city-wide community and commercial support from families and companies such as major sponsor, The Andrea-Mennen Family Foundation (TAFF). Rudy G. Andrea, the President/Treasurer of TAFF and a friend to the HingePoint team, introduced us to the Collin Classic Bike Rally fundraiser for City House, via his local biking club called the Rudy Ride. Rudy Andrea is raising the level of awareness throughout the cycling community about many worthy causes in the Metroplex. We are thankful to get involved in a worthy cause and proud to cycle weekly with Rudy and his pals.

Ride For a Cause

City House has been around for over 25 years. During this time they have not only provided emergency shelter and transitional services for young people; they have empowered change and transformed lives. City House provides residential and non-residential services to more than 500 children, young adults and their families each year. The Collin County nonprofit agency was founded back in the late ‘80s and proceeds from the bike rally benefit their important work. Learn more about them at: http://www.cityhouse.org

HingePoint Sponsors and Serves

Bryce Finnerty, Johnny Stromp and Brendan Desjardins represented the HingePoint team at this year’s event. We provided shade with the HingePoint branded tent; ice chests full of cold water and a willingness to ride and serve. Little known fact: HingePoint is also a member of the local bike community and a regular on the Rudy Ride. We love to bike and it’s a core company value to serve. So when the annual bike rally arrives we all get a win and City House gets the blessing! There will be numerous opportunities for individuals and corporations to partner with City House during next year’s event. We found it very worthwhile and rewarding.

Giving Back Is As Easy As Riding A Bike

HingePoint is as serious about giving back to the community as it is about providing innovative integration solutions for our clients. So, we are suiting up in our HingePoint team cycling jerseys (and yes, those funky biking shorts) for the 24th annual Collin Classic Bike Rally on Saturday, June 13, 2015. Proceeds benefit the important work of City House. City House is a Collin County nonprofit agency founded in the late ‘80s by two teachers. Some of their students were facing very adult problems – homelessness, violence and neglect. And so, the mission of City House was born. Collin Classic 2015 Bike Rally   HingePoint is privileged to be one of the official sponsors for this event that provides fun activities for all ages and much-needed provisions for City House. Serious cyclists, as well as weekend and family riders, are all welcome to join the annual Rally. We’re excited to roll out any support we can to City House and it’s main sponsor – The Andrea-Mennen Family Foundation (TAFF). Rudy G. Andrea, the President/Treasurer of TAFF and a friend to the HingePoint team, introduced us to the Collin Classic Bike Rally fundraiser for City House, via his local biking club called the Rudy Ride. Rudy Andrea is raising the level of awareness throughout the cycling community about many worthy causes in the Metroplex. We are thankful to get involved in a worthy cause and proud to cycle weekly with Rudy and his pals. [caption id="attachment_11588" align="alignleft" width="300"]HingePointBikeJersey HingePoint sponsors Collin Classic and the Rudy Ride cycling kit[/caption] HingePoint makes it a point to be intentional about giving back, volunteering and fostering a service-oriented company culture. We encourage our associates to invest 4 hours a week in service to others by utilizing personal talents in various organizations and causes. In addition, we provide pro-bono services to many charities and ministries that rely on technical systems to fulfill their mission. Our offering is the gift of systems integration, which can be combined with other charity and ministry gifts to maximize impact in local communities. For many, biking brings up wonderful memories – freedom; the wind in your hair; training wheels finally coming off and discovering the world within your neighborhood. As good as that felt, it will feel “doubly good” to hop back on your bike and give to kids in need. City House has been around for 26+ years and they do more than provide emergency shelter and transitional services for young people ... they empower change and transform lives. [caption id="attachment_11589" align="alignright" width="225"]HingePoint Bike Jersey HingePoint trains for the Collin Classic by riding around Lake Tahoe CA before doing a systems integration workshop with a client in California.[/caption] On Saturday June 13th, get involved by jumping on a bike, making a donation and bringing focus to this important organization.

Finnerty gave insight on BIM 360 Docs and how they played a role preventing errors and fostering their client relationships. In this case, Finnerty was meeting with a client at Starbucks. BIM 360 Docs allowed him to access 3D models to share with his client.

"When we do BIM models for our clients, we deliver them here on mobile apps,” said Finnerty. “While at a Starbucks, I was able to drill down [and] use the tool right there to facilitate a meeting with an important client. This is a very easy way to show off your designs and your work and collaborate on your data.”

Finnerty was able to determine that the source of the problem was the metal fabricator, which veered off course during the project.

"The moral of the story is that while everything was connected to the BIM model, everything was going great,” said Finnerty. “The first person to get disconnected from the BIM model made the first big mistake."
