McKeon feels that the construction industry is a margin-pressured space that is struggling to implement technologies that can address their needs. Additionally, construction companies have been operating the same way for years, and as a result, the industry has become rigid to embrace new technologies. Getting everyone to adapt new and more efficient ways of doing things is a big challenge B2W helps companies overcome these challenges by providing a cohesive platform of operational tools that are highly scalable, secure, uniquely intuitive, and easy to use. The company’s solutions effectively leverage the latest technologies into a unified system approach for not only estimating, bidding, field tracking and analysis, but also for resource planning, dispatching, and asset maintenance.
“We work diligently to enhance our product offerings with the latest cloud and mobile tablet technologies,” affirms McKeon. Solutions like B2W’s Operational Networked Elements (ONE), B2W Mobile Tablet App and B2W Cloud are examples of this commitment. ONE platform is the core technology beneath every B2W product. “We’ve heard over and over that companies do not want disparate products that can’t communicate with each other,” says McKeon. With ONE, each B2W element shares the same unified database that keeps everyone on the same page in real-time. So, if a foreman using B2W Track on a tablet in the field updates a piece of equipment to say it is down and is in need of repair, then the folks using B2W Maintain and B2W Dispatch can see that information in real time.
At B2W Software, we are always looking at new technologies and evaluating their impact on the construction industry
“Going forward, we will deepen and broaden our operational suite to address the full operational scope of the companies who use our software. To support this endeavor, we will continue to deploy the best and the right technology,” affirms McKeon. “Building on our continued success in North America, we will also broaden our initiatives to create a bigger global presence,” he concludes.
