SharePoint Two-Way API Integration Brings Microsoft’s Enterprise-Grade Document Libraries Right into Procore

Procore customers can now automatically update SharePoint and Procore libraries simultaneously with a new SharePoint Two-Way Sync integration and connector, built on Procore Construction OS and is available in the App Marketplace. SharePoint Two-Way Sync shares and mirrors files and documents in both SharePoint and Procore libraries through a new connector created by HingePoint, a Dallas-based company that integrates and architects SharePoint for better data management. The SharePoint Two-Way Sync brings Microsoft’s enterprise-grade document libraries right into Procore, with two-way, real-time sync of folders and documents. When a folder is updated in SharePoint, it updates in Procore. If a file is deleted in Procore, it is deleted in SharePoint. “This is not an embedded form that anyone can access, it's an actual API integration that lets SharePoint and Procore libraries mirror one another while having the security of both systems," HingePoint CEO and Founder Bryce Finnerty said. “If you are a user with rights to a Procore project and you’re a SharePoint user with rights to a document library, you can access the synced files." A growing number of construction companies use SharePoint as their system of record to store important data about employees, contracts and project status. 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. With the new connector, companies can automatically and securely sync files between Procore and SharePoint or Office 365, which will save time and confusion when managing project documents. It also creates better collaboration with the teams that are not in the construction space. Leveraging SharePoint’s API with Procore’s open system, this integration automates document sync, saving time and effort of updating two systems that tracks and reports documents. This integration allows everyone – from the owner to the general contractor – to have access to relevant documents needed to finish a project. “We’re excited for the SharePoint connector from HingePoint to launch on the App Marketplace as it will have an immediate impact for our users who will be able to take advantage of it,” said Laura Paciano, Senior Manager, Partner Programs, at Procore. “We first began talking with HingePoint about an integration at Groundbreak, which was just over five months ago, so for the connector to now be ready is a testament to their commitment to the construction industry and value of the 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, so a business can project trends about their business. For more information, contact us today! 214-301-0000

If you’re managing your data in spreadsheets right now, that's probably not the best option for you. A spreadsheet is essentially just a dumb piece of paper that you're writing on. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvGyOHpg47Q If you import the data that is in a spreadsheet into SharePoint, you will be able to manipulate the data in different ways, create different list views so you can see your data in different ways. You can connect SharePoint to multiple other external systems through Integrations, create workflows that speak to other places in SharePoint. Now you have smart data that can be easily merged and visual,  instead of data that is just sitting in a spreadsheet. We see a lot of businesses managing all their data for their clients or for their customers in tools like Smart Sheets, Excel or the Google applications. These tools are essentially a shared Excel file without a lot of process automation or integration with other tools. SharePoint is easier to use because it puts all those different tools on one platform and it's a central hub where you can find and do everything needed for your daily routine. If you move over to SharePoint and house your data there, you can create workflows and integrate with other systems that you have throughout your company in different departments and manage data better. It flows seamlessly through your business processes instead of being dissipated in other systems of record. SharePoint is also a good tool because it can be used as a customer's system of record. For instance, we’re helping one client right now manage all their employee data. They have this data in several different systems and it has discrepancies in it: different addresses, different names, capitalization errors, etc. SharePoint is their only system of record now, and all that employee data is held and kept there. We also built discrepancy reports using Power BI,  which compares the data from SharePoint to the company's other systems. We know that SharePoint is the system of record where that data actually lives and we can fix the errors that are in the other systems. If you’re using a spreadsheet to manage your company's data, we strongly suggest SharePoint because that data can automatically be pushed to other systems, it can create workflows, and SharePoint can create integrations with external systems that you may have, and give you better insight into what that data actually means.

Managing Data with SharePoint Will Transform Your Business

Are you managing your entire company from a spreadsheet? How are you going to grow with those document management tools? Does your SharePoint work the way you want it to? If you properly implement SharePoint, it will transform your company's productivity. Employees will be more efficient, you'll have better access to your company's data, and you'll be able to better report on key metrics. HingePoint’s custom SharePoint solutions have helped many companies struggling with unorganized data and manual, multi-step processes. Those same customers have transitioned into a more organized, productive organization through automated workflows and easy-to-search information.   [post_title] => Spreadsheets vs. SharePoint, Which one Manages Data Better?

One of the greatest things SharePoint can do is give employees in different departments the ability to have their data easily accessible and organized in one place, instead of hunting for it. What do we mean by data? We mean contracts, project information, policies, employee training, and metrics. But there is a lot more to data than just simply having it. See our free, online eBook to learn more about getting the right kind of data in your business.

How companies hunt

Companies have historically not trusted the data they have about projects or HR tasks like employee training. Instead of going to a trusted system of record or data source, employees must hunt and gather the data. There are many ways to hunt. Often, companies who do not trust data will have a lot of meetings about projects and find information through email, instead of looking at the system of record. Here are four areas where SharePoint helps companies be more efficient and have more accurate, accessible information for employees.

Projects Management Dashboard

A project management dashboard is important because it keeps helps you stay on top of your projects. You can get your projects done faster, cheaper, better with fewer mistakes. SharePoint can even predict when your projects are finished, provide all necessary documentation for a project and details. We help businesses customize and integrate SharePoint for better project management.

Sales Contracts and RFPs

We’ve seen businesses use SharePoint to track contracts with governments and track hundreds of RFPs. SharePoint can even report on RFPs and – if a company has the information – the competitive intelligence needed to win an RFP, all at a push of the button.

Human Resource Portal for Corporate Policies and Procedures & Employee Training

One company we worked with had a paper sign in sheet to determine who went to mandatory training. Human resources would spend countless hours following up with employees to see who finished mandatory, government training. Now, employees can self-report by checking a box in SharePoint, and all the information is automatically reported.

Performance Metrics

A lot of companies track how well they are doing with SharePoint. They track how well they’re completing their tasks, compliance with various procedures, safety incidents, sales numbers, and contract wins. Again, with performance metrics reporting in one place, employees are not forced to track information down.

  • Devices 
  • Systems (like software) 
  • Humans 
 This is how we categorize data flow when we onboard a new client. We’re going to use the airline industry to show you the different categories of data management.
Devices – device We should use devices to collect data. Sometimes people must collect data. But if we can use a tool it will save a lot of time and get rid of a ton of busy work. Let’s look at the airline and weather example. Instead of making people continuously report the temperature in various cities, devices collect this information. Could you imagine how much tickets would be if people had to report this data?  
system Systems (Like software) – Many times devices collect data and then people turn it into information for senior leaders to make decisions. Many employees in corporate America are “Deck Donkeys,” which means the solely create decks to share information. These Power Point decks are typical graphs, reports, etc. Taking the airline industry example, instead of someone constantly making reports on the weather and showing where there is inclement weather, the airline industry has software that automatically reports on severe weather. Based on the weather, systems can predict airport congestion, taxi times and even what runways will be available and when. You can read a blog o n how The Weather Company uses systems for prediction.
human Humans – Humans ultimately make the decisions. Let’s look at the airline industry one last time. After looking over the information on freezing temperatures, the information is funneled to the pilots, control towers, and airlines so they can make the best decisions for passengers. More from The Weather Company:
Airlines cannot change the weather, but they can mitigate the effect if they know the impact in advance. By understanding situations and the potential of their impacts ahead of time, airlines can execute time-sensitive strategies (such as flight cancellation, flight swaps, reserve crew, and etc.) to mitigate such impacts.
Could you imagine what would happen if ALL this work was completed by a human? There would certainly be errors and airline prices would be even higher! With the right devices collecting the data and the right systems transposing it into information, humans can focus on making strategic decisions that will make their customers happy. That is how technology should work for us.

Toyota and Lean Land in Plano, Texas

If you know anything about Toyota North America headquarters, you probably heard it is moving to Plano, Texas. They are building a remarkable new headquarters building near Legacy West. But what you might not know is that Toyota has revolutionized how companies and organizations around the world work together through something called lean. Lean is a philosophical approach created by Toyota in the 1930s to eliminate waste so you can better serve customers. "Being Toyota's neighbor in Plano is outstanding," HingePoint CEO and Founder Bryce Finnerty said. "We not only eliminate waste for our clients who are doing redundant work because of the software they are using, we have adopted the philosophy in our own work." The HingePoint team has been reading “2 Second Lean” by Paul Akers for about a year now. We read a page in our morning, 30-minute huddle, and we all try to “lean out” our workflow. Akers, who sent a personal message to the HingePoint team via YouTube, said lean is very simple and it should not be complicated. "Lean is simply the elimination of waste by taking every process that you do every day and just removing that waste and making it a little more efficient and easier for you to do," Akers said. "Lean should make your work more enjoyable. If it does that you're going to be more productive, the quality is going to go up, the customer is going to win, the company is going to win and you're going to win." Lean thinking is spreading.  According to the Lean Enterprise Institute, almost all industries are applying lean thinking to their businesses: logistics and distribution, services, retail, healthcare, construction, maintenance, and government. “Indeed, lean consciousness and methods are only beginning to take root among senior managers and leaders in all sectors today,” according to the Lean Enterprise Institute, But what exactly does 'lean out' mean? When we say “lean out your work,” we’re saying, “See where you are wasting time or resources and fix it.” Be like Toyota, and lean thinking will vastly improve your business. If you only save two seconds on repetitive tasks, those seconds start adding up if you continuously improve. And if you take the philosophy to heart, you can lean out your life both personally or professionally. Another good way to lean out your workflow is to fix what bugs you. Actually, all HingePointers are paid 40 minutes Tuesday through Friday to find something that bugs them and to fix it. We’ve had employees redesign entire personal offices to learning more Excel keyboard shortcuts. You can see a list of more examples below. So Why is Toyota and Lean Important? Toyota vastly improved Henry Ford’s assembly line, by seeing how they could eliminate waste. Toyota called the philosophy of complete elimination of all waste the Toyota Production System. “Waste can manifest as excess inventory in some cases, extraneous processing steps in other cases, and defective products in yet other cases. All these "waste" elements intertwine with each other to create more waste, eventually impacting the management of the corporation itself,” according to Toyota. The production system was created with the objective of "making the vehicles ordered by customers in the quickest and most efficient way, in order to deliver the vehicles as quickly as possible." How does this apply to your business? Toyota and lean thinking goes hand in hand. But think about your own customers. Are they getting your best work in the most efficient way possible? Or do you have waste? Are you wasting time because you have some software that isn’t working the way you want it? Do you have all your data in one place? Entire companies have been created around the idea of eliminating waste. HingePoint is one of them. We help you take control of your critical data that is locked in a server and can’t communicate with other systems.

During the AEI 2017 Conference, a panel of speakers from Community Resilience Panel for Buildings and Infrastructure Systems shared how they make disaster recovery plans for big and small cities. The mission of the Panel is to “reduce barriers to achieving community resilience by promoting collaboration among stakeholders to strengthen the resilience of buildings, infrastructure, and social systems upon which communities rely.” How will the city get the hospital functioning again after a tornado? How will they get the water running and electricity on? How will they provide food to a community? This is what they mean by resilience. How fast does it take to bounce back? The Community Resilience Panel can digitally model the electricity grid and water infrastructure in a town. The can simulate a hypothetical tornado through the town. Then they can run an open source program to determine what the tornado's path has destroyed and quickly come up with a recovery plan. They created a six-step guide for small or large communities with or without its own resilience department.  The plan is designed to be flexible and give community leaders and emergency responders a way to respond to a disaster. The planning that goes into responding to these natural disasters is critical. And we can all learn how to better plan in our own businesses. This type six-step process can probably help in any type of plan that you need to put into place. The six-step process Think of a small city in north Texas with a hospital. If a tornado were to rip through the town and cut power off to the hospital, it could take a while for the town to recover. Or maybe a Wal-Mart is the central business in the town. If it were shut down due to power or a tornado, it could be detrimental to the recovery of the city. The flexible process was developed so people and communities can conclude how to best respond to disasters. Also, think about your own business, whether you are building a new structure or trying to win a bid. This can help. You can learn more here, https://www.nist.gov/topics/community-resilience/community-resilience-planning-guide-briefs. 1. Form a collaborative planning team – The first step in the process is to build a collaborative team that can help with the issue. You’ll need to identify a leader, team members and key stakeholders.In the case of Wal-Mart losing power in a natural disaster, you’d want to include a local Wal-Mart official, someone from the electric company, an emergency management representative, appropriate city officials and communication companies. These identified people will be responsible for coming up with a plan to make the community’s plan resilient. 2. Understand the situation – Like any plan, you need to understand the situation. Collect data. In the instance of a city responding to a natural disaster, you’d want co collect demographics, zoning, infrastructure, imagery, buildings locations and land cover. 3. Determine goals –Establish long-term community goals and establish performance goals. What are the risks and hazards that you might face and determine anticipated performance. Then summarize the results. 4. Plan development –Evaluate the gaps. What will prevent you from achieving your goals. Find a solution. Once you do, develop an implementation strategy. 5. Plan preparation, review, and approval – Document your plan and strategy. Obtain feedback and approval. Finalize and approve plan. 6. Plan implementation and maintenance – Execute approved solutions and evaluate, modify and update as needed.

Microsoft has positioned itself to be the tool to transform business processes by automating work, making it easy to harness collective knowledge by finding info and expertise more quickly and by informing engaged employees, corporate vice president for OneDrive, SharePoint and Office Jeff Teper said today during the SharePoint Virtual Summit. “You can share with confidence,” Teper said. “Gives you anywhere access to all your files on any device.” Microsoft is hoping the new features will help achieve their mission: Empower every person in every organization to achieve more. Microsoft announced that it will be easier to share files with a simple sharing experience even with people outside of the organization. OneDrive is Microsoft's service for hosting files and is available to anyone who has a Microsoft account. Its deep Office integration, which powers rich co-authoring, allows you to collaborate on these shared files with others in real-time. It lets you access all your Office 365 files, including your individual work files and files shared with you by individuals, teams and the organization—regardless of whether you’re on a PC, Mac, an iOS or Android device or a Windows phone.

Microsoft On Demand OneDrive

OneDrive, SharePoint, HingePoint Building upon last week’s announcement of OneDrive Files On-Demand—which lets you work with all your files within File Explorer on Windows 10—Microsoft announced that starting this summer, users will be able to share Office 365 files directly from File Explorer on PC and Finder on Mac. The cool thing is that users can choose what files will be saved to what device. So if you’re working offline, you can save a file to your device to work on it while off the grid. The sharing experience has been simplified, so you can share a file or folder with specific people or send a link that enables anyone who needs access, inside or outside your organization. In addition, you can now control how long a link provides access, and you can easily view and modify the permissions you have granted. The new sharing experience is the same, whether you share on the web, in Explorer on Windows 10 and Windows 7, or in Finder on Mac.

SharePoint Continues to Grow 

Office365, OneDrive, SharePoint, HingePoint With more than 100 million monthly active users, Office 365 provides the most complete, intelligent and secure service for communications and collaboration. SharePoint plays an important role in Office 365, empowering customers to share and manage content, knowledge and apps to create a more connected workplace. As customers transition to the cloud, Microsoft is seeing more adoption of SharePoint:
  • More than 250,000 organizations and over 85 percent of Fortune 500 companies now have SharePoint as part of Office 365.
  • In the last year, usage of SharePoint has grown 90 percent, content stored has grown 300 percent and more than 10 million new SharePoint sites have been created.
  • More than 60 percent of SharePoint seats are now online, reflecting the value customers see with SharePoint in Office 365.

Real Estate Developers focusing on integration issues with legacy systems

The biggest trend for almost every business is this burden to outperform how they did last year and competitors. In the commercial real estate area, there are trends that can directly influence how these companies work and achieve maximum growth.

Real estate developers want to build faster and reduce expenses, just as any good business wants. But the major difference for developers is that they are starting to feel more pressure to perform. Deloitte states that developers will begin leveraging new technologies and fix integration issues with legacy systems. Here is HingePoint’s take on the top technological trends for commercial real estate developers.

  Commercial Real Estate  

1) Real Estate Investment Staying Strong in the United States 

It’s a good time to be a real estate developer. The United States continues to be the most favored destination for real estate investments, according to the Association of Foreign Investors in Real Estate (AFIRE). In their annual survey, foreign investors placed the United States as the top destination to invest in real estate.

According to the AFIRE’s press release, 95% of respondents to the survey say they will maintain or increase their investment in the United States. Dallas—where HingePoint is headquartered—ranks 12th in the world for places to invest in real estate. Almost half of the top cities to invest in are within the United States.

2) Need to Keep Top Talent

With increased investment in the United States, real estate developers will need to keep top talent and get them up to speed faster when they hire new employees. Onboarding can be frustrating at a company that does not have a process in place or a one-stop shop for internal employees and contractors. They’ll need to onboard new talent more efficiently and give instant access to needed information so employees can do their job better and come up to speed faster.

Many developers and construction companies expected to grow are upgrading their internal SharePoint sites so employees can instantly access what they need to be more productively.

Deloitte seems to think that competition for talent is going to be fierce.

“A shortage of candidates with strong skills in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); rising urbanization; and Millennial's’ preference for an open and flexible work culture are changing the employment marketplace and will result in significant competition for talent.”

3) Cloud and Mobile

Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, where you can access shared resources, data and information on-demand. This information is stored on a computer or server that you can access through the Internet. Accessing the cloud with a mobile device gives you access to your entire business on the go. You can communicate and share virtually any document with anyone anywhere.

     

4) Take Control of Data

Taking control of company information is one of the most difficult and one of the most critical tasks any company can take on. And believe it or now, SharePoint is still one of the top enterprise tools out there for collaboration, and sharing and organizing information.

Anyone can start using the cloud and mobile devices. Any company can stand up SharePoint and make it a company initiative for all employees to use it. But if the information is not organized and found easily, and you can’t maximize the out-of-the-box solutions or customize SharePoint to work the way you want it, your enterprise style tools probably won't be effective.

Bryce Finnerty, CEO and Founder of HingePoint, said more commercial real estate developers are completely changing their systems.

“Many developers are going straight to customization. They want their systems and software to work the way they want it,” he said.

5) Getting rid of the old, upgrading legacy systems

Many commercial real estate developers are still using systems created in the first decade of this century.. and some are still just relying on 2D CAD, email and paper. With mobile, the cloud and Autodesk’s newer capabilities, commercial real estate developers are seeing that they can leapfrog in productivity.

Many developers will begin to completely overhaul their legacy systems and software. They will take an integrated approach, which means software will automatically share data and information with other software. For example, many developers want SalesForce and SharePoint to share information and data with each other. It streamlines effort of employees and makes collaboration better.

Manual data entry and redundant tasks will dramatically fall. More employees will have access to critical information they need to do their job effectively.

6) 3D Virtual Prototypes

New technology allows Commercial Real Estate to build prototypes with photo-realistic renderings and validate design selections. This helps developers sell properties with renovations first, gets approvals faster, and markets buildings faster for less upfront cost.

3D Virtual Prototypes speed up the design and construction phases on projects. Clients often gain 20% on their project timelines. Improved collaboration, decision-making, visualization, and clash detection are benefits proven to reduce costly change orders, delays, and rework.

7) New tech like 3D printing and augmented reality

Augmented and virtual reality are so new for commercial real estate, some headsets are still being tested. For example augmented reality headsets like DAQRI’s Smart Helmet could revolutionize how new developments are built and how construction companies troubleshoot problems.

They are also altering how real estate developers show off new properties. Instead of photorealistic prototypes on a computer screen, marketers can send headsets to prospects to let them literally walk around a multi-million dollar condominium or office. It makes data truly 3D.

CAD & BIM Integration to SharePoint, Salesforce, Autodesk, and beyond

Whether you're working with SharePoint, Salesforce or Autodesk, integration is more critical than ever. As companies start using new collaborative tools and going into the cloud, integration is still a struggle. CIO wrote that about 90 percent of businesses are using the cloud. But initial integration is creating challenges. “Integration challenges remain long after organizations first make the jump to the cloud, it’s clear that the technology is here to stay. Businesses who ride out the current storm and find the right balance of public, private and hybrid cloud solutions will gain a unique advantage over the competitors,” according to CIO. Making your software and solutions talk to one another is critical. “When applications don’t ‘speak’ to one another or share information, companies are forced to continuously update different systems of record,” HingePoint CEO and Founder Bryce Finnerty said. “They are prisoners to the technology they use.” Here are three quick HingePoint examples of companies that needed an integration solution. CAD to BIM: A client used CAD files to build rental storage units across Texas. Everything was done with paper: the planning, the design, determining the rentable space in the building, and submitting construction documents. For each building this developer built, new CAD files were created. HingePoint took all the developer’s CAD drawings, put them in Revit and made a full 3D model the developer can view on their smartphone. Hotel franchise: A large hotel franchise had 12 old software platforms powering the en- tire company. The hotel franchise envisioned automating the design and construction process that operated perhaps the largest system of hotel rooms on the planet. The goal was to move everything to the cloud... and access all the information on a mobile screen. You can learn more from our Integrated Solutions eBook. Commercial Real Estate Developer: A real estate firm tracked the finances for more than 50 projects manually. All 50 project managers would collect key financial data from each project. They would put it into a PDF and send it to the CFO. The CFO team would then print the PDFs and put all the data into an Excel spreadsheet. Then they would make graphs and tables to see how the projects were doing. They would do this once a month. To solve this problem, HingePoint made one simple interface where the CFO can get the data instantly. Project managers just upload information to the digital financial dashboard now and the information is found immediately. A Simple 5 Step Systems Integration Process
A system of record is the first step, here’s how: 1 - Document the steps in your business process. Create a spreadsheet to capture the tasks performed and tools & systems used by each user/role active in the process. 2 - Research the data used in each step. Include the information found in each report, screen, or document used in the process. Create a data dictionary of all data fields and the system they come from (and who “owns” that data). 3 - Agree on the company “system of record” for each data point within each step in the process. 4 - Locate the duplicate data – Check the steps recorded and the systems involved. This step is key. The goal is to standardize the data formats and establish a comprehensive “data definition” that supports the business. 5 - Migrate all data directly into the “System of Record” and then integrate the down- stream systems into it. Make the system “share data” across the enterprise, not duplicate it.

SharePoint Two-Way API Integration Brings Microsoft’s Enterprise-Grade Document Libraries Right into Procore

Procore customers can now automatically update SharePoint and Procore libraries simultaneously with a new SharePoint Two-Way Sync integration and connector, built on Procore Construction OS and is available in the App Marketplace. SharePoint Two-Way Sync shares and mirrors files and documents in both SharePoint and Procore libraries through a new connector created by HingePoint, a Dallas-based company that integrates and architects SharePoint for better data management. The SharePoint Two-Way Sync brings Microsoft’s enterprise-grade document libraries right into Procore, with two-way, real-time sync of folders and documents. When a folder is updated in SharePoint, it updates in Procore. If a file is deleted in Procore, it is deleted in SharePoint. “This is not an embedded form that anyone can access, it's an actual API integration that lets SharePoint and Procore libraries mirror one another while having the security of both systems," HingePoint CEO and Founder Bryce Finnerty said. “If you are a user with rights to a Procore project and you’re a SharePoint user with rights to a document library, you can access the synced files." A growing number of construction companies use SharePoint as their system of record to store important data about employees, contracts and project status. 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. With the new connector, companies can automatically and securely sync files between Procore and SharePoint or Office 365, which will save time and confusion when managing project documents. It also creates better collaboration with the teams that are not in the construction space. Leveraging SharePoint’s API with Procore’s open system, this integration automates document sync, saving time and effort of updating two systems that tracks and reports documents. This integration allows everyone – from the owner to the general contractor – to have access to relevant documents needed to finish a project. “We’re excited for the SharePoint connector from HingePoint to launch on the App Marketplace as it will have an immediate impact for our users who will be able to take advantage of it,” said Laura Paciano, Senior Manager, Partner Programs, at Procore. “We first began talking with HingePoint about an integration at Groundbreak, which was just over five months ago, so for the connector to now be ready is a testament to their commitment to the construction industry and value of the 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, so a business can project trends about their business. For more information, contact us today! 214-301-0000
