Construction cloud solutions scalable and comprehensive
Viewpoint launched the next evolution of its hosted services with Viewpoint Enterprise Cloud (VEC) at the 2017 ENR Future Tech conference. Unique in the world of construction cloud solutions, VEC is built on a high performance, scalable cloud technology that integrates the industry's most comprehensive solution suite for the Office, Team and Field.
Viewpoint's vision, building on over 40 years of experience in the technology and construction industries, is to accelerate construction industry productivity by propelling the industry further into the digital age. This groundbreaking step in that direction means customers can easily simplify their IT strategy, while ensuring users get the flexibility and mobility needed to increase efficiency across all workflows.
"It's widely acknowledged that intelligent technology can make the critical difference in increasing profitability and managing risk in the construction industry. With Viewpoint Enterprise Cloud, our customers get all the benefits of an integrated construction platform without the hassle of having to host their software solutions, freeing them up to focus on what matters most to their business: managing risk, controlling cost and delivering exceptional projects," says senior vice president of product management, Matt Harris.
VEC provides Viewpoint customers with an integrated solution suite that serves their needs across all areas of the business.
- Viewpoint OFFICE solutions for data-intensive jobs like accounting and payroll.
- Viewpoint TEAM solutions offer collaborative project management capabilities for functions like submittals and RFIs.
- Viewpoint FIELD solutions provide the ability to collect data such as field observations, time and productivity.
Unlike solutions that rely solely on browser-based cloud technology, VEC's construction platform ensures users have access to a single source of data, while maintaining the ability to work in the user interface most appropriate for the job at hand.
"It was important to us to make sure that customers didn't lose any of the flexibility they need in their solutions, while at the same time simplifying how they manage their IT. VEC offers higher performance than on-premises solutions. We manage software updates and data back-ups, so users have access to the most up-to-date technology and data in an always on mobile ready platform," says product manager, Eric Vasbinder.
Also unique in the industry is the way VEC is packaged. In an effort to offer maximum value and to simplify life for customers even further, Viewpoint offers three VEC packages - VEC Office, VEC Office and Team, and VEC Office, Team and Field. Each VEC package includes the software and data hosting and a service agreement in one simple payment.
