Experts from Touchplan and OpenSpace discuss the value of combining contech to help lead a job site with insights provided by Corrie Neuens and Sarah Tenpas from The Boldt Company.

Touchplan recently hosted a webinar with our marketing partner OpenSpace. OpenSpace combines simple off-the-shelf 360° cameras, computer vision, and AI to make it incredibly easy to capture a complete visual record of a jobsite, share it via the cloud, and track progress remotely.

The webinar topic focused on combining technologies like Touchplan and OpenSpace on a construction project which helps leadership run projects more efficiently. The meeting was led by Touchplanner Andrew Piland and Jeff Flores from OpenSpace. Joining them were Corrie Neuens and Sarah Tenpas from The Boldt Company, who have used the two technology tools on their construction projects.

The conversation revolved around how to grow leadership capital through innovation, improving team member accountability, the contributing factors to a productive planning meeting, and how technology enhances the visibility of jobsite conditions.

Here are some of the key takeaways from the panelists.

  • Touchplan and OpenSpace’s integration aims to build collaborative synergy by talking specifically about a particular scope and showing what it looks like on the job allowing users to have concise, data-driven conversations and walk away with a solid understanding of what they will be doing.
  • When leading a team on the jobsite, if someone is reluctant to use technology, understand how much value that person adds to the project. Touchplan is simple to use, especially with the multiple training sessions, but you need to make sure they learn to do it themselves and that you as a leader take the time to train them. If they can learn Touchplan, then they can understand OpenSpace, and the efficiency will genuinely improve.
  • The value of using Touchplan and OpenSpace, especially in real-time, allows for richer discussions. You can talk about an issue and pull it up with OpenSpace to show the exact problem spot, so people can stay focused and see for themselves what is going on. The field doesn’t always grow up with the schedule so using them together and updating it is essential.
