Here's what we learned at AU2017!
With the year's end rapidly approaching, we are taking some time to look back at what was our largest conference in 2017: Autodesk University 2017 in Las Vegas, NV. There we joined more than 10,000 professionals from the architecture, design, manufacturing, and media industries for three days of learning, inspiration, and in-depth skills development. The KTrack team participated in the conference in many different ways, maintaining a booth in the expo hall, attending small sessions and even hosting a large sessions titled "FM Handover - How Do You Know You Got What You Wanted?'
How was KTrack received?
Throughout the conference we met many like-minded professionals who could relate to a shoddy FM handover process. All agreed that it is a huge industry problem and that there is little being done about it. Because there are no industry norms to regulate the process, many are left confused and without the information they need to maintain their properties. The amount of data they are given is overwhelming. One of the themes we noticed at Autodesk University was the concept of building solutions that solve problems for a wide breadth of users. We felt confident that we are doing just that with KTrack. Our lead sales rep mentioned how booth visitors reacted to the product: "Everyone loved the interface. That was the number one compliment we received and that alone really helped keep people engaged. We did a good job separating us from products like BIM 360, Procore, etc. Most GCs have trouble giving the owners something they can drive into their CMMS. They really like that we offer that as well but we are not making anyone have to leave what the owner already has (Maximo, Archibus, Asset Works, etc.)." Our booth visitors also loved our mobile capabilities, they far outshined others in the space. Because of the nature of the show, we received a lot of interest in various integrations and integration with Autodesk Revit in particular. We are happy to share that integrations and other features are top of our list moving into 2018.
With another successful show in the books, the KTrack team is full steam ahead in 2018. Look for product improvements, additional integrations and more from the KTrack team!
