We’re Now Trimble Viewpoint

You may have heard the news but we are now operating under a new name—Trimble Viewpoint! Don’t worry, we’re still the company you know and love. Now with the help of Trimble, we are bringing the benefit of digital transformation directly to our customers. By connecting the digital and physical worlds, the sharing of information and construction data just got easier. ProContractor is central to that connectivity.

As we enter into 2022, we are excited to continue innovating and providing actionable information and intelligence so you can make the right decisions faster.

New Innovations

There are so many great new innovations coming in the upcoming weeks!

Be sure to keep an eye out for some exciting new releases coming your way in the upcoming weeks and months. The Trimble Viewpoint team has been working hard to develop ProContractor in ways that will bring greater benefits and efficiencies to users. Geo-specific calculations, updated tax forms, COVID-19 protocol, and more will be coming with the ProContractor 4.0 and ProContractor Mobile 6.6 release.

These improvements will be foundational as we continue to develop ProContractor and work to give our customers the tools they need to increase productivity, supply chain and production control. To learn more about the upcoming ProContractor Innovations, watch the session on-demand here.

Let’s Grow Your Business

Leslie Shiner is always a hit and this year was no exception! As a business, it’s important to understand that steady growth is not realistic. Every company is different and growth will be more challenging for some, but there are certain steps every organization can take to better their odds. Leslie does an excellent job at outlining the five steps of small business growth that every company should take to get themselves from existence to resource maturity.

While these steps are key, it is also important for organizations to take time to identify their goals and understand all the individual numbers. While growth is an attainable goal, there is much more successful businesses need to obtain in the process.

Cybersecurity: Protecting Your Data and Business

One of the most important topics of the conference, cybersecurity strategies to protect your company’s operations had attendees buzzing! Bryce Austin, cybersecurity expert from TCE Strategy, joined ProContractor Summit and as always, had great tips and tricks on how every organization can stay safe from cybersecurity criminals.

Whether you’re in the cloud or on-prem, being prepared for any potential threat is necessary. Your organization should have proper regulations and rules in place for passwords, multi-factor authentication (MFA), data backups, and more. It can all be a bit overwhelming at first but every business should have these safety precautions in place to protect itself and it’s customers.

These are just five of the many takeaways our customers gained at ProContractor Summit. And as we’re sure you’ve figured out, all the sessions are now available on-demand!
