Cloud Technology Transforms Estimating
Construction companies continue to adapt to cloud technology, with technology partnerships on the upswing and focus on improving estimating and bidding, field tracking, and analysis—as well as resource planning, dispatching, and maintenance.
As yet another example of a teaming of forces, industry leader B2W Software, www.b2wsoftware.com, Portsmouth, N.H., recently joined with LoadSpring, www.loadspring.com, Carlsbad, Calif., to bring its technology to the cloud.
B2W’s ONE (Operational Networked Elements) Platform provides everyone from office managers to foremen in the field with direct insight into the construction process. Four separate modules create one unified suite—including B2W Estimate, B2W Track, B2W Dispatch, and B2W Maintain. The end result is a single point of data entry, enabling instant cross-module resource visibility and collaboration, as well as significantly improved operational efficiency and accuracy.
And as construction companies have come to expect, LoadSpring’s SpringBoard has a cloud interface that promotes even higher levels of project management, control, and flexibility. The SpringBoard solution leverages the cloud with an intuitive user interface, realtime geo-site mapping, and full project management via a private, assignment-based messaging system.
Many construction professionals have come to expect cost-effective software to manage the construction lifecycle. With LoadSpring, these customers are ensured high levels of security, availability, and services—all while eliminating labor-intensive provisioning and deployment. And the return on investment is significantly enhanced quality of service and control.
Employing today’s scalable, flexible, and cost-efficient full service product line, innovations like B2W ONE for the cloud enable customers to more rapidly implement the software, scale users as needed, and provide secure remote access for all team members. The results are improvements in operational efficiency further drive new revenue opportunities.
