We know that as an IT professional in a construction organization, you wear many hats — mobile device manager, server maintainer and application help desk to name a few. That’s why we are dedicating an entire educational track at this year’s Viewpoint Collaborate User Conference just for you! This track offers dozens of sessions on timely topics in construction IT, from emerging trends in cloud computing to detailed instruction in Viewpoint software database and reporting tools.

There will be a total of 53 sessions specific to IT professionals who implement, manage and use Viewpoint products. We will cover everything from driving internal change and leading technology adoption to successful software implementation strategies to setting up and managing workflows throughout the organization to cloud and hosting strategies. This track is designed to allow you — the IT manager — to come away prepared to get even more value out of your software, while reducing headaches and workloads.

To provide just a glimpse into the content you can expect, here is a sample of some of the sessions you can look forward to attending:

Spectrum Business Intelligence: Taking Your Reports to the Next Level

Learn about the more advanced features in construction business intelligence. Use the context menus to configure, display and customize your reports. Learn how to link one report to another letting your readers drill down into more detail. Add prompts to control the information displayed on your dashboards and interactive reports.

Driving Internal Change: How to Lead Technology Adoption

So you bought a fancy new tech solution — and no one is using it. It’s infuriating, but is it all their fault? Change is hard, and technology change is no different. We’ll look at different ways and methods companies have used to drive technology adoption, reaping the benefits of speed and efficiency.

How to Right Size Your Company’s IT Investment: Making the Case

The best way to understand if you’re falling behind is to know what others are doing. Join us to explore how three different contractors have been able to put together a technology stack that makes sense for their businesses, and how you can use their learnings to benchmark your own use of tech and make the business case for future investments, gaining time and productivity back in the process.

Conversations with Construction IT Pros: How We Sleep at Night

Come hear from three construction IT experts about what keeps them up at night, and how they solve those problems. The risks are different for different sized companies, so we’ve made sure to host someone from different sized organizations to ensure it’s relevant for all. We’ll cover BYOD, cybersecurity and more!

Re-imagining Change Management: A Focus Group

We want to learn from you! Join us in a discussion about re-imagining change management for Viewpoint Team™ collaborative project management solution. We will discuss workflow and processes, how collaboration fits in, outputs, integration points and more. The format will be a facilitated discussion driven from your participation. Come with any artifacts or examples that may help.
