Meet Viewpoint’s new blog, Surveyor, and explore industry updates, market shifts, best practices, news, and trends.

It’s been a busy summer here at Viewpoint: We announced our exciting acquisition of Dexter + Chaney, a leader in cloud-based ERP software. Viewpoint’s Enterprise Cloud platform launched as the next generation of construction software. Our team has been on the road at trade shows, conventions, and seminars. We rolled out updates and enhancements to Field View, ProContractor, and Vista. We even unveiled a new company logo! But we aren’t done yet.

Welcome to Surveyor, Viewpoint’s new blog that looks beyond the surface of the industry.

Everything you know and love about Viewpoint’s blog is still here; now it’s been optimized for easier searching and readability. Surveyor gives us a unique opportunity to share news, updates, state of the industry content, and best practices. Our most popular posts are featured under a new sidebar for quick and easy access.

The updated layout organizes our posts into seven categories, making it easy for you to find what you’re looking for, explore topics, and dive deep into your business needs and interests. In addition, you can search by keyword. Take a look at our new Surveyor categories.

Best Practices

At Viewpoint, we’re here to make your construction software work for you. Instead of spending your time troubleshooting IT, you can focus on your craft. In addition to software guidance, Best Practices is stocked with tips, suggestions, and ideas to level-up your construction business. Topics will include safety tips, leadership advice, working with big data, how to navigate the changing industry, and more.


Viewpoint is always on the road, bringing the latest in integrated software to global audiences. You can find us at trade shows, conventions, seminars and industry events. The Surveyor Events category will highlight upcoming trade shows and conferences worldwide, as well as recaps from our team.


Viewpoint is proud to share our updates and happenings with the industry. In our News category, we’ll expand on company announcements, software updates, and more. Our official press releases and media coverage can be found here.


This is what we live for. Our suite of integrated construction software is designed to help with estimating, HR, bids, take-offs, job costing, project management, and more. The Surveyor Software category focuses on all things integrated software including updates and enhancements, best practices, and user guides.

Success Stories

We love to share how Viewpoint has helped our clients meet and exceed their goals. Our Success Stories category will also feature community involvement and outreach updates. While we still have a dedicated area for customer successes, we’ll be highlighting client success stories on our blog as well. If you’d like to be featured, don’t hesitate to reach out. We want to hear how Viewpoint construction software has helped you!


Our Trends category encompasses posts that are just that — trends of the industry. This may include green building, integrated software, technology, industry news, market shifts, and more. Here you’ll find Viewpoint’s take on trends, and matter-of-fact reporting on what’s driving conversations within the industry.


If it doesn’t fit into the above categories, expect to find it here. Sometimes we feature uncategorized, yet relevant topics on the blog. This is where to find them.
