Portland, Ore. – April 14, 2015 – Viewpoint Construction Software®, a leading provider of innovative software solutions to the construction industry, announced the availability of the latest release of Vista by Viewpoint, which includes significant updates to the project management functionality of the software including Resource and Service Management, BIM, and Enterprise Content Management.
Resource Management, fully integrated with Vista, now provides the ability to manage, locate and view the available resources across projects. This detailed management helps organizations ensure they are better utilizing resources, whether its equipment, supplies or team members. Service Management, also fully integrated with Vista, now includes significant enhancements to Work Order Management and Service Agreements providing tighter control and increased options for scheduling and billing.
BIM Manager, a browser-based solution that enables teams to edit and revise information regarding architectural, structural and MEP models, now provides increased validation and control options to ensure better quality data. Updates also allow for the identification of outstanding errors in COBie data and a new color-coding system quickly identifies revisions between models.
The search interface for Vista’s enterprise content management is now available via mobile devices, allowing users in the field to create new queries and use search modifiers to narrow their results, just as they do on the desktop. Updated mobile capabilities also allow users to now take a picture or capture documents, add meta data, and then upload it, all using a mobile device.
“With Vista, our customers have complete visibility of their project costs such as labor and changes in scope – allowing them to see in the moment as to whether they are making money on a project,” offered Rob Humphreys, Vice President of Product Management at Viewpoint. “Project and Service Managers will greatly benefit from enhanced tools that will help reduce costs, streamline workflow and ultimately make every project more profitable. Additionally, our committed and continual interaction with our customers and the market keeps us up to date on the most important improvements we need to make to our products. These relationships are the cornerstone to Viewpoint’s success.”
