The latest product from Microsoft, Teams, is the collaboration work hub on Office365 that includes communications for calls, chat and online meetings as well as documents that is widely adopted by the business community. To better serve the needs of the construction industry, HingePoint is expanding Procore SharePoint 2 Way Sync solution to work seamlessly with MS Teams. Now all your documents in SharePoint, OneDrive, MS Teams will be fully synchronized with Procore on all devices from the browser, mobile, apps and desktop tools. HingePoint will make the release public in December 2018 in the Procore App Marketplace.

Read the full press release on PRWeb here >>

SharePoint Two-Way Sync shares and mirrors files, folders and documents in both SharePoint and Procore libraries through a connector created by HingePoint, a Dallas-based company. The connector is built on the Microsoft cloud platform Azure and integrates SharePoint as the backbone of Digital Business Hubs that keep companies fully integrated with data, documents, and workflows to streamline construction and real estate development businesses.

This big development will allow companies more efficient ways of working, ensuring that new systems will not create more complexity or fracture the company’s enterprise ability to collaborate. Now construction companies can leverage the best of what both Microsoft and Procore offer by keeping all of their documents synchronized across all systems and devices. These systems talking to each other is the solution that clients are looking for when field teams struggle to collaborate with clients and contractors and keep all their information up to date and shared across all subcontractors.

“This is not a simple connector product app, it’s an actual real-time API integration that lets MS Teams, SharePoint and Procore libraries mirror one another while having the security of both systems. This expands our solutions for the construction industry” HingePoint Managing Director Bryce Finnerty said.

HingePoint is offering a pricing model that will allow clients to license a turn-key solution that can be set up in a few hours. A solution that our clients can host in their own Azure environment scale to 100’s of projects across the enterprise will be key going forward.

A growing number of construction companies use MS Teams and SharePoint as their system of record to store important data about employees, contracts and project analytics. This connector eliminates multiple repositories of documents in both Procore and SharePoint and connects the construction unit to the rest of the company.

The new integration HingePoint provides for Procore reflects each organization’s commitment to openness and building out the construction technology ecosystem. What we call Digital Business Hubs, with the new connector, companies can automatically and securely sync files between Procore, MS Teams and SharePoint or Office 365, which will save time and confusion when managing project documents.

Digital Business Hubs creates better collaboration with the teams that are not in the construction space.

"We're excited for HingePoint to expand their integration to the MS Teams platform, once launched on the App Marketplace this will provide tangible new value to Procore users." said Doug Gibson, Business Development Manager at Procore. "This new solution for MS Teams is a testament to HingePoint's commitment to the construction industry and value of the Procore App Marketplace."

HingePoint integrates software so data can move from one system to another. They specialize in building custom tools that detect and collect data project and financial data, so a business can get control of their business.

Imagine if you could tell exactly what has changed in your project with a push of a button. That’s exactly what Assemble Systems allows you to do with their software, Assemble Systems Business Development Manager Fahim Dangra said. Instead of flipping through hundreds of sheets and trying to figure out what has changed by comparing a previous set of drawings to the new ones, you can just push a button. “I can just simply click a button and our software will tell me that there is 23,000 square feet of concrete added to this model,” Dangra said. “And then right away I can jump on it and determine if I need to write an RFI, make a change order, or maybe my sub is charging me too much.” Assemble Systems connects your 2D digital drawings to a 3D model and gives you the ability to see the same information in both drawing and model at the same time. The idea is to see as much information as possible. Assemble gives you all the inventory or the intelligence from the 3D models and 2D drawings in a grid view, said Mark Klusza, Assemble Systems Chief Innovation Officer. As you pick on these items, you have a 3D view and then the associated 2D view and it’s all tied together at the same time. As soon as you open the model in Assemble all the quantity information is right there. “Everything is cross-referenced in real time and it doesn’t matter what offering source it comes from,” Klusza said Assemble is also launching a new API called Assemble Connect. That allows you to reach into the Assemble project database and link it to other applications like Oracle and Sage. “And based on those queries you can live update and the table and properties will change based on that external data,” Klusza said. “We can integrate basically anything and bring it into your system.” And since it’s cloud-based it can be used anywhere there is an internet connection. “We have kept it so they don’t have to be a BIM expert,” Dangra said. “Anybody can just go in, open up our software, tap into the model and look at the information that they wanted to.” Assemble Systems, which was one of several sponsors at Procore’s annual conference, is able to integrate with Procore. The integration enables project teams to integrate BIM/VDC capabilities seamlessly into their project management workflows for improved project control.   HingePoint covers the AEC Industry and is the author of The AEC Industry 4.0 Report and the Autodesk Industry Report 2017.

Matterport’s next-generation immersive media solution for construction and facility management documentation is eye catching. Matterport helps contractors, engineering firms, and architects document construction with a $3,600 camera to give you a 3D virtual tour. Matterport’s Pro Camera captures 2D photography and 3D data from job sites, and automatically stitches them into a complete, immersive 3D model. “You basically walk it around the job site. It spins for 45 seconds,” said Tomer Poran, business development manager at Matterport. “And uses infrared to map out 3D and take 3D images from its camera.” Matterport is an immersive media technology company that builds 3D media solutions that power industries from real estate to construction, and everywhere in between. Founded in 2011, Matterport is creating a complete virtual model of the world that changes the way individuals and industries interact with physical spaces. And it’s relatively fast. “Because this 3D data can be exported at relatively high accuracy we’re at about 99 percent accurate and mostly above that so you can build a pretty good as-built,” Poran said. “We’re talking about five hours after you are finished you have a fully stitched point cloud.” Matterport, which was one of several sponsors at Procore’s annual conference, is able to integrate with Procore. With Matterport and the Procore integration, users can look at the most updated documents or submittals, and anyone on the project team can now virtually step into the jobsite and walk around freely.

Drones offer construction firms a lot more than just going in the air to capture pictures and videos.

However, even though drones are a major boon for construction and real estate developers, they can also cause problems for companies, HingePoint CEO and Founder Bryce Finnerty said.

"Drones are another way to gather data. If you don't set up your systems and software correctly, the drone's digital assets are going to cause more unstructured data that's going to be difficult to manage," Finnerty said. "And if you don't integrate it with the data you already have, it will be another screen or system you have to open to manage your project."

Companies have begun developing software to gather data from drones and either make new BIM models or place the data in you existing model. During the annual conference Groundbreak 2017, Procore announced better integration with Construction OS.  Several drone companies are already taking advantage of Procore's new app store.

The companies are capitalizing on the safety and ease of drones and are hoping to organize drone data to benefit construction firms.

EarthCam has developed a geospatial mapping platform, resulting in a comprehensive analytical report. The data for this mapping platform comes from their stationary cameras that stream a live video of the project along with drone flyovers. By combining their cameras, cloud-based storage and distribution tools it gives construction companies robust BIM models.

"We're flying drones and scanning the whole project and we're putting together 3D models," said Brain Cury, CEO of EarthCam. "Then we utilize that to do a webcam wrap. So then we're wrapping live video around the 3D point cloud that we made."

Benefits include a digital framework to attach construction webcam images, geo-tagged photographs, site plans and video analytics of the project that users can build upon throughout the entire construction process.

"You start with the point cloud. Once you have the point cloud you can map the images, 3d models and BIM models."

Botlink specializes in becoming the link between drones and construction by enabling professionals to quickly capture data about the worksite. With their simple flight planning software, they can incorporate drones without the need of a drone expert.

It gives you more insight into job site progression. With Botlink's timeline view inspectors or construction crews can see how the project has progressed over time.

"All the data you are capturing is consistent, you're flying the same exact route every day instead of having to hand fly and manually capture images and waste your time moving those images around and organizing them," said Will DeHoogh, drone developer at Botlink. "Instead Botlink stitches all the images together and if you're doing an inspection you don't you have to sift through video, you can just zoom in the area you are interested in."

Dronomy transforms off-the-shelf consumer drones into powerful equipment, delivering the most precise and comprehensive data. The data is then converted into 2D and 3D models of the current project status that can be accessible anywhere.

"This type of information helps teams to be objective so everyone is on the same page," said Gil Mildworth, vice president of Dronomy. "Construction companies when they build today invest a lot in 3D modeling in the architecture phase, but they are almost blindfolded in building their site the right way."

With cost codes, photo updates with notes and location-based time tracking, busybusy wants management to have up-to-date information about work in the field and the cost and time projects are taking. “We help ensure the office knows that their employees are meeting the business plan that they already approved,” said Aubrey Barlow, account development manager at busybusy. “Employees in the field can grab the project that they are working on and the cost codes and track time to it so the office can tell how many hours they have done on each project.” busybusy was a sponsor of Procore’s 2017 annual conference. (Read more here to learn about what Procore announced at their keynote.) busybusy integrates with Procore in the hopes of simplifying time card data and budgets. busybusy data syncs with Procore campaigns by pushing new busybusy data and pulling existing Procore project data. Teams can clock directly into Procore projects and see real-time budget reports in the busybusy app. “We are a mobile time tracking app so we allow employees out in the field to clock in, grab their GPS location, and send their information right back into the office.” Employees can add photos and notes to their timecards and the projects. Images are viewable from all devices. "Overall it’s going to give the office more insight into what’s going on in the field,” Barlow said. busybusy also has a report section that gives information needed to ensure the business is profitable. See past job cost and budget so businesses can accurately forecast the next job. “You can look at your budgets,” Barlow said. “Management can see the job costing and see where they are within their budget." busybusy’s mission is to provide businesses sufficient information to make profitable decisions by simplifying time tracking, GPS labor tracking, job costing, and photo documentation. busybusy currently employs more than 50 people in the greater Saint George area and is a leader in software solutions for the construction industry.

Fieldlens, a communication platform for construction crews that is like Facebook, urges workers to ditch the notepad and go digital. Fieldlens wants general contractors to use the social-media-sharing platform to document every conversation, assignments and decisions on the job site. With Fieldlens you can immediately capture photos and videos of punchlist items and assign them in real-time as you walk the job. “Imagine you had a Facebook feed for your project. And instead of just posting comments and photos…. it’s that plus actionability,” said Julian Clayton, chief customer officer at Fieldlens. “I can assign tasks to people in those posts and put due dates in there.” With Fieldlens you can:
  • Sync your project users, companies, types and locations to Fieldlens.
  • Capture everything on-site and connect everyone in real-time.
  • Automatically feed the firehose of information to your Procore project.
“It’s the easiest way to capture everything on site and assign any issue to the right person on your team,” Clayton said. Fieldlens, which was one of several sponsors at Procore’s annual conference, is able to integrate with Procore. Fieldlens projects can connect to Procore to sync project users, companies, types and locations. It can automatically send information created in the field through Fieldlens into Procore’s observation module.

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.

The latest product from Microsoft, Teams, is the collaboration work hub on Office365 that includes communications for calls, chat and online meetings as well as documents that is widely adopted by the business community. To better serve the needs of the construction industry, HingePoint is expanding Procore SharePoint 2 Way Sync solution to work seamlessly with MS Teams. Now all your documents in SharePoint, OneDrive, MS Teams will be fully synchronized with Procore on all devices from the browser, mobile, apps and desktop tools. HingePoint will make the release public in December 2018 in the Procore App Marketplace. Read the full press release on PRWeb here >> SharePoint Two-Way Sync shares and mirrors files, folders and documents in both SharePoint and Procore libraries through a connector created by HingePoint, a Dallas-based company. The connector is built on the Microsoft cloud platform Azure and integrates SharePoint as the backbone of Digital Business Hubs that keep companies fully integrated with data, documents, and workflows to streamline construction and real estate development businesses. This big development will allow companies more efficient ways of working, ensuring that new systems will not create more complexity or fracture the company’s enterprise ability to collaborate. Now construction companies can leverage the best of what both Microsoft and Procore offer by keeping all of their documents synchronized across all systems and devices. These systems talking to each other is the solution that clients are looking for when field teams struggle to collaborate with clients and contractors and keep all their information up to date and shared across all subcontractors. “This is not a simple connector product app, it’s an actual real-time API integration that lets MS Teams, SharePoint and Procore libraries mirror one another while having the security of both systems. This expands our solutions for the construction industry” HingePoint Managing Director Bryce Finnerty said. HingePoint is offering a pricing model that will allow clients to license a turn-key solution that can be set up in a few hours. A solution that our clients can host in their own Azure environment scale to 100’s of projects across the enterprise will be key going forward. A growing number of construction companies use MS Teams and SharePoint as their system of record to store important data about employees, contracts and project analytics. This connector eliminates multiple repositories of documents in both Procore and SharePoint and connects the construction unit to the rest of the company. The new integration HingePoint provides for Procore reflects each organization’s commitment to openness and building out the construction technology ecosystem. What we call Digital Business Hubs, with the new connector, companies can automatically and securely sync files between Procore, MS Teams and SharePoint or Office 365, which will save time and confusion when managing project documents. Digital Business Hubs creates better collaboration with the teams that are not in the construction space. "We're excited for HingePoint to expand their integration to the MS Teams platform, once launched on the App Marketplace this will provide tangible new value to Procore users." said Doug Gibson, Business Development Manager at Procore. "This new solution for MS Teams is a testament to HingePoint's commitment to the construction industry and value of the Procore App Marketplace." HingePoint integrates software so data can move from one system to another. They specialize in building custom tools that detect and collect data project and financial data, so a business can get control of their business.
