Highlighting Construction Technology at CFMA National Conference
For 38 years now, the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) has been supporting the construction industry by providing unparalleled financial and operational management education, networking and growth and development opportunities for construction professionals. With more than 8,200 members and nearly 100 regional events, the association has grown into one of the powerhouses of education and leadership in the construction industry.
The marquee event where this commitment to education is on full display is the CFMA’s annual conference, held this year June 1-5 at the Cosmopolitan resort-casino in Las Vegas. Viewpoint, which has been a key CFMA partner for decades, and is again playing a key role in the annual conference, bringing leading-edge construction technology to CFMA members.
Attendees are encouraged to visit Viewpoint’s booth (#305) in the conference’s exhibit hall, as well as check out some of the latest construction technologies helping contractors simplify their workloads while better tying together their office, field and extended project team operations, and gain deeper levels of intelligence into their construction jobs.
Viewpoint Technology Forum to Showcase Intuitive Construction Field and Office Solutions
On Day 2 of the conference, Viewpoint will host its Construction Technology Forum from noon to 2 p.m. in the Mount Royal room at the Cosmopolitan. This event will provide lunch to attendees while showcasing some of the latest Viewpoint products and technology strategies. Among them:
- The powerful Viewpoint Field Management application, which helps streamline jobsite processes to boost productivity and better manage real-time project data from the field;
- Advancements with the Viewpoint HR Management solution, a dedicated construction HR application to help contractors manage employee processes like career and benefit documentation, training and compliance, and the streamlining of hiring and onboarding processes;
- A spotlight on current — and upcoming — data and business intelligence tools for contractors; and
- A customer success panel featuring winning stories and strategies by Viewpoint clients, with a focus on Viewpoint’s HR Management, Financial Controls and Field Management solutions.
A Focus on Construction Business Intelligence
As part of an extended focus on business intelligence and data analytics in construction, Viewpoint Chief Product and Strategy Officer Matt Harris — along with Vice President of Product Management Jeremy Larson and Senior Spectrum Product Manager Geoff Falk — will be presenting a special session on the topic. The session, “Turning Construction Data into Actionable Business Intelligence,” will give attendees an overview of how data analytics is transforming contractors’ operations and how it’s helping them leverage stronger results.
Today’s construction companies are only beginning to harness the power of information. With intuitive modern construction software that integrates functionality across construction organizations and the accessibility of the cloud, contractors are moving to digitize their operations — reaping benefits that include deeper understanding of projects, mitigated project risks, the ability to better forecast and plan out future work and ultimately stronger profit margins.
This session will highlight the available technologies allowing contractors to glean true business intelligence, as well as help attendees better understand recent trends in big data and predictive analytics, while forging a strong set of best practices to best achieve modern construction intelligence.
