Construction Viz – Our Journey So Far
Longtime readers of the Lydon Solutions blog know that we’ve been talking about Construction Viz since its release in 2016. To bring everyone up to speed, below is a chronological recap of posts originally published on our Lydon Solutions parent site.
We announced Construction Viz back in 2016 as a subscription-based construction project management solution powered by Microsoft SharePoint, SQL, and Azure. We were pretty excited since there really was not (and still is not) anything else like it on the market.
What makes Construction Viz so different is its deep integration with SharePoint and SQL, industry-leading enterprise technologies from Microsoft that most companies already use and trust. But getting the most out of these platforms requires complicated configuration and customization. Construction Viz handles all of that, letting organizations manage their projects in a way that is fully optimized for construction teams. It includes everything project teams need, including document management, dashboards, reports, forms, workflows, and more – all available right within the familiar SharePoint environment and backed with all the power of SQL for data management and querying.
We believe that every organization, project, and PM have unique needs. But too many platforms out there take a one-size-fits-all approach. The industry deserves better.
Which is why we designed Construction Viz from the ground up to be a flexible and easy-to-use solution tailored to the way you and your team do your work. Throughout 2017, we shared updates on the Lydon Solutions blog about how we were expanding and refining Construction Viz’s features:
(Even More) Powerful Reporting with SQL SSRS
Our integration with Microsoft SQL and the SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) toolkit – formerly Datazen – opened up powerful reporting and dashboard features for our Construction Viz users.
Combined Geospatial Map and Project Data
“Dude, where’s my project?” is something Construction Viz users never need to ask. Thanks to our deep integration with Microsoft SharePoint and SQL, it is easy to seamlessly combine map data from applications like ArcGIS with project information in Construction Viz to create a robust, mobile-friendly mapping solution.
Document Editing and Real-time Collaboration Using Mobile Devices
Project teams need to be productive in the office and the field. Which is why we integrated Construction Viz with Microsoft Office Online Server. The integration enables Construction Viz users to view, edit, and collaborate on Office documents in real-time right from their mobile browser on any device.
Create and Share Custom Project Dashboards
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a well-designed dashboard is worth ten thousand. We shared how users can combine Construction Viz with Microsoft SQL Server Mobile Report Publisher to easily build and share visually-striking, custom project dashboards with their team.
Last year we had big news with the rollout of our Construction Viz Apps for SharePoint & Office 365. The apps are game-changers for construction project management teams, allowing organizations to select and deploy only the features they need right into their Microsoft SharePoint or Office 365 environments. No other platform gives you that kind of flexibility.
Construction Viz Apps are turbocharged with React, an innovative technology used by industry-leading disruptors like Facebook, Netflix, Airbnb, and Dropbox. Building our apps with React enables us to give you all the power of Construction Viz, SharePoint, and SQL with a simple user-interface and complete freedom to choose the features that are important to you.
Our Construction Viz Apps are the full realization of the vision we had in 2016 of giving construction teams an alternative to bloated, one-size-fits-all platforms.
Which brings us to the present. We Have Big Plans for Construction Viz in 2019, including a new marketplace to make it even easier to buy and deploy our apps, adding services to help construction organizations get the most out of Office 365, plus much more.
