[Electrical Contractor - Webinar Recording] Take Your Electrical Estimating Workflows to the Cloud w

March 17, 2021
In this webinar collaboration with Electrical Contractor Magazine, learn how you can optimize your estimating, wherever you are with Trimble Accubid Anywhere. This fully hosted solution allows estimators to collaborate from anywhere. Webinar Transcription: We'll be discussing the business problems of the on premise software, as well as discussing why modern software companies are moving away from this type of software delivery. What is Trimble activity anywhere and how does it address these pain points in our business? I'll be doing a high fly over feature demo. Now, this is not a full product demo. And, of course, you can achieve a full product demo by reaching out to Trimble's and get connected with one of your sales reps. But this will at least give you a feel for the features and functions that elevate this platform over what is currently being offered in the market space. We'll follow up at the end, as Colleen said, with some questions answered, so please, as you have those questions, feel free to reach out with that and we will get to as many of those as we can. We will follow up with answers to the others as well and provide more information following this as well. So Colleen did a great job of introducing me, so I'm going to just kind of skip over that slide. There's not much more to tell you about other than I've been around this platform for a lot of years. And I can honestly tell you that this product excites me very well. It it drives what I do today with this little in this strange world that we live in currently. I have the fortune of having my wife walk over my shoulder and working out of our home here. And one of the things you notice, she that she must be very excited about that product, because I know your voice goes up, you start talking very fast and you get very excited. So I'll try to keep that in mind today and slow down, make sure they understand everything I'm trying to try to. Little introduction about Trimble for those that don't understand, Trimble acquired ackee and. About 11 years ago, platform of has been out in the marketplace for over 30 years, and Trimble's brought quite a bit of development for us. We are working as a complete provider of solutions, tying this solution that we're going to talk about today into other solutions that Trimble is providing. One of the things that I think you're going to see in the near future is the ability for an installer to present on the project, put on a hard hat that will have a Holman's built into it. They'll be able to see all the material that's needed for the particular task that they're given to go to that particular work area, step into that room and have this software project Modlin right in front of them a little bit be able to install as they're seeing the installation that it's already been completed. It's going to help us obviously grow a large productivity, eliminate errors and issues, those type of things. So this is just one step towards that direction. The. Now. The challenges the electrical contractors are encountering in this year is beyond anything we've seen before. Obviously, a lot of remote working has gone into place, having connectivity to their offices and sharing information needed to be able to access any time. Cash flow is obviously a concern at any year, but especially in unseen conditions and uncertain times that we're in. These are the elements that we're going to be speaking about today, trying to help you ascertain these issues as well as help you provide a solution to these issues. Now. The challenge of on premise software, on premise software keeps us limited to accessibility. It's not as mobile as we'd like to have in this day and age. It limits our ability to collaborate, which is one of the biggest elements of cost that we all know. If anything, I can ask any contractor if you could put your thumb on one topic that you feel is the most costly topic to your business and your profitability. It's going to be lack of communication and collaboration. So it also puts a high demand on IP resources, the cost of the hardware and. It provides an uncertainty of how well that information is going to be readily available to us when we're at the time of need. Now, that's where the opportunity of cloud based software comes into play. First I want to say. To start by talking about what Microsoft has, your definition of cloud computing is you see this here on the screen. What I want to point your attention to is the last half of this where faster innovation, flexible resources, economic economies of scale and the result of lower operating cost efficiency and scalability, nothing could be more scalable than an investment that can grow with you or you can proceed with you in times of need time to them. And so this is the platform that we are providing with Jacobin anywhere. The benefits of the cloud. The stated aim is to reduce costs, I'll cover more of this on the next slide, but increasing scalability ...
