Engineering.com, 7/13/2017

A big construction project is like a celebrity. It gets a lot of attention. Everyone takes pictures and videos. For stakeholders, it would be nice if all those images could be stored in one place, and be labeled and shared. It would be even nicer if someone could study the collected images and videos and be able to monitor their progress; check on key milestones; spot potential problems, including safety issues; and so on.

Do your construction progress photos best represent your brand?

Kris Lengieza, 6/15/2017

In the age of digital media we are always looking for good content to share whether it be on our websites, in proposals or on social media. How do we make sure that we are representing our company and personal brands when posting photos of our jobsites? I believe that I have found a great workflow to control the messaging and branding of the photos that put out into the interwebs, its called Smartvid.io.  Many of you probably know Josh Kanner (@jkanner1) and his team and how they have been working to incorporate Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning  (AI/ML) into the world of construction photos, but did you know they are building a pretty awesome marketing tool at the same time?
