MEADOWS BELIEVES IN THE POWER OF TECHNOLOGY to improve both the customer and project team experience. Utilizing the latest cloud-based collaboration tools is key to keeping our projects seamless, transparent, and well-communicated with team members, clients, and design firm partners.
A primary tool for our teams, Bluebeam Revu is an industry-leading software that allows for detailed mark-ups and annotations on drawings, as well as the ability to collaborate from a single set of plans for accuracy and efficiency. As a member of NYC’s Bluebeam User Group (BUG), Meadows’ Director of Enterprise Solutions, Ethan Bajrak, takes charge of keeping our team members up to date on Bluebeam Revu capabilities. As a BUG Champion, Bajrak is one of a handful of BUG members who participate in round table discussions and host BUG meetings.
In this video, Bajrak and other BUG members discuss how they collaborate in an effort to enhance project processes at their organizations.
“TO BE ABLE TO SIT WITH A GENERAL CONTRACTOR, AN ENGINEER, AND AN ARCHITECT ALL AT THE SAME TIME…IS TREMENDOUSLY IMPORTANT.”
IN ADDITION TO BLUEBEAM REVU, OUR TEAM MEMBERS USE A NUMBER OF OTHER CLOUD-BASED SOLUTIONS ON A DAILY BASIS:
We have customized NetSuite – a powerful CRM/ERP tool – to automate and manage project processes and milestones with incredible accuracy. With NetSuite, KPIs and task lists are continually monitored and team members can see project statuses in real time.
Box, a file storage platform, provides the ability to access and share files, track versions, and document every aspect of a project from anywhere in the world.
DocuSign is fully integrated with NetSuite and Box and allows for easy, electronic approval of quotations, drawings, and install sets.
Okta provides employees with single sign-on access to Meadows’ full suite of applications, allowing team members to log in seamlessly from their desktop or the job site.
Our proprietary project management app, Meadows Workflow™, was strategically designed to harness the power of all Meadows technology tools in one streamlined interface, allowing our teams to access pertinent project information no matter their location.
