Great companies that can harness the power of Building Information Modeling (BIM) are able to focus on the most important thing needed to be done.
One way to do this is to get rid of or minimize busy work and redundant tasks, and giving you and your employees access to the information you need.
These are the four attributes that HingePoint sees as critical so you can take control of your information and work on what matters. There are a lot of free tools on the market to help you. (We even have a roadmap you can download.)
The first three are somewhat easy to implement. But keep in mind that the final attribute is what most companies have the most difficulty accomplishing.
When our applications don’t “talk” to one another and share information, we must continuously update different systems of record.
We recently helped a real estate developer. They were tracking 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 and the information is found immediately.
The way we solved it was by integrating several systems and software to all show up one screen, like a computer screen or the screen of a smartphone. We had to have software talk to one another.
Now the teams can work on more than just collecting data and the executives can spend more time on making the best decision.
This is the true power of integration.
