Viewpoint Digital Roadshow Makes Stop in New York City
NEW YORK, NEW YORK — Viewpoint customers from New York gathered at the Renaissance New York Midtown Hotel for the New York stop of the Viewpoint 2019 Digital Contractor Roadshow. The Digital Contractor Roadshow is a series of interactive and educational networking events that cover technology trends in the construction industry. The roadshow series is making its way across North America, with stops in more than 30 markets.
In New York, participants heard from keynote speaker and cybersecurity expert Bryce Austin, and from Viewpoint customers NorthStar Group Services and Posillico. Panelists discussed how their businesses have evolved over the past decade and how technology is helping them transform their companies, as well as the importance of connecting the office to the field. Panelists and participants also discussed their top technology priorities and initiatives over the next two years.
“Although every construction company has its own unique needs and challenges, many of our customers and prospects have the same questions about adopting technology and how to move forward with emerging technologies,” said Wayne Newitts, Senior Manager of Enterprise Marketing for Viewpoint and emcee of the event. “One of the most popular and engaging parts of the roadshow is always the time customers get to interact and engage with each other.”
Approximately 40 Viewpoint customers from the New York City area had opportunities throughout the day to exchange best practices during networking breaks. Many shared ways in which they are leveraging Viewpoint technologies to streamline issues around common challenges, such as onboarding employees and creating better visibility into real-time financial management.
In addition to the keynote, panel presentation and networking opportunities, attendees also got a sneak peek at what is new and what is next from Viewpoint and Trimble. Attendees also waited to test out Trimble Connect for HoloLens mixed reality technology.
Viewpoint launched the 2019 Digital Roadshow on the heels of its 2018 series that engaged hundreds of construction industry professionals in more than 20 metro areas. This year’s schedule has expanded to more than 30 metro areas across the United States.
"We were thrilled to bring our Digital Contractor Roadshow to the Big Apple,” Newitts said. "With over $60 billion in new construction last year in the city, contractors are looking for ways to keep up with the demand and still deliver safe, quality work. We're proud to be playing some part in this exciting building boom."
Viewpoint provides integrated software solutions that help construction companies integrate operations across the office, team and field to improve project profitability, enhance productivity, manage risk and effectively collaborate across the broad construction ecosystem.
