3 Key Takeaways from BIMForum 2017

KTrack Attends BIMForum 2017 in San Diego, CA

The KTrack team recently attended BIMForum at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina. The conference is designed to attract industry participants from around the country to participate in a larger conversation about innovation in the building industry. This was the KTrack team's first time attending the conference as an exhibitor and we were happy to hear consistent, positive feedback about our recently released platform.  This year’s conference theme closely paralleled KTrack’s own product development focus: “What does the building owner want?”

Main Takeaways from BIMForum

According to our team, the main conference takeaways reinforced the work we have been doing in the field for the last year. The dozens of demos we performed were well received, and many of our industry contemporaries let us know that the KTrack tool is something they would use in the future.

They were impressed with the depth of the program and especially like that it was built from people who have facilities management experience from the ground up.

Our takeaways? 

  • We're on the right track. There is a need for a product like KTrack in the industry. Anyone who has ever had to dig through a mountain of building information to find a tiny detail they need for their building maintenance has been waiting for a product like this for a long time. Offering a collaborative and moderated data collection process is valuable to these owners.

  • The building owner needs to be happy. We had the opportunity to speak with many building owners who still struggle with organization and facility data handover. We have made it a goal of ours to change the process so that building owners benefit.

  • The industry still has a long way to go, but we're on the right track!
