Userful Supports Construction Industry
Revolution through Collaborative Meeting
One of the key technological advancements in each Smart Lab is innovative video walls, used to encourage effective collaboration by displaying key performance indicators and additional data visualizations on a screen that everyone can view and interact with.
However, Suffolk ran into a roadblock when the video solution they originally implemented could no longer handle their growing needs. In addition to streaming live video from various different construction sites, Suffolk now required access to a wide library of content and needed to display more than one source on their walls simultaneously. Furthermore, Suffolk’s Smart Lab staff needed to be able to easily control all the content from a tablet.
• The ability to pull any type of high-quality content (up to 10k) onto the video wall from a tablet
• The flexibility to divide the video wall into multiple zones and display images and slideshows all at the same time
• The affordability due to its use of a standard PC/Server and network
Based on these three benefits, Bhattacharya and his team first deployed a Userful video wall in their Boston Smart lab. In the years since, Suffolk has rolled out Userful video walls in all seven of their Smart Labs across the nation.
The Userful video walls have empowered the Suffolk team to explore innovative ways to leverage new technologies, which provides significant value to clients and stakeholders. They display 3D renderings, KPIs to monitor performance, budget, and timeline as well as real-time content from showcase construction projects already underway.
As Suffolk continues to launch Smart Labs throughout the country, Userful’s central cloud-based management capabilities enable the organization to manage and control all its video walls across the country from a single location, allowing collaboration between the different locations and promoting a unified corporate message across their entire visual network, making the video wall technology even more efficient.
