Viewpoint CEO Outlines Strategy for Integrated Office, Team & Field Operations to Increase Construction Productivity and Financial Performance
PORTLAND, OREGON — October 10, 2017 — Viewpoint, the established leader in ERP, project management and mobile solutions for the construction industry, today unveiled its vision for helping contractors increase productivity and profitability through cloud-based software that integrates end-to-end operations across the office, team and field. The company also announced a host of new technology solutions, product enhancements and client benefits at Collaborate 2017 — the largest construction software conference in North America.
“We are working with our clients and partners to transform the business of construction,” said Manolis Kotzabasakis, CEO Viewpoint. “We have an opportunity like never before to integrate operations across financial and HR systems, project management tools and mobile field solutions. This integration across office, team and field processes is dramatically increasing the efficiency, productivity and profitability for our clients and the entire ecosystem of the industry impacting owners, general contractors, sub-contractors, project managers, architects, and engineers.”
The conference, held Oct. 9-12 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Ore., features four days of in-depth training, educational sessions, presentations from industry experts, networking events and much more. Nearly 2,000 industry professionals representing all facets of construction organization clients, technology providers, trade associations, and media are attending Collaborate 2017.
This also marks the first conference incorporating clients using Spectrum® Construction Software, following Viewpoint’s acquisition of Seattle-based Dexter + Chaney in July of this year. The combination of Viewpoint and Dexter + Chaney brings together more than 75 years of combined experience in construction technology innovation and the largest research and development and service and support organization in the world.
“Spectrum clients are excited to be here at Collaborate 2017,” said Norbert Orth, President and CEO of Dexter + Chaney. “We are working as an integrated organization to not only enhance and expand Spectrum software capabilities, but to deliver innovative new office, team, and field technologies that can help our customers to transform their businesses.”
