Summit BIM summary

Problem

Summit BIM had been working with an outsourced programmer. Unfortunately, communication had been challenging and the coding practices weren’t up to speed. The current user interface was lean, with no resources and outdated design. Trades contractors needed access to extract and upload data.

Challenges

Facilitating a transition to better processes without overly disrupting their team. The databases were messy and we needed to work collaboratively to clean them up. Working with legacy programs, code and processes. The nature of the program itself is also a hard-to-understand system. Getting up to speed with regard to domain knowledge was challenging. The client had a lot of choices to make and was still solidifying direction.

Solution

We have developed targeted solutions for each of these problems. Firstly, we’ve supported them with guidance and helped improve the processes and codebase. We developed their data extraction module for trades contractors and upgraded their user interface. We also redesigned the user interface.

Design

We overhauled and upgraded the design for the internal system upgrades in line with brand image.

Functionality

The data extraction module now allows trades contractors to access information on serial numbers, specs, warranties, etc., for any property or space they are working in. The system runs effectively to store big data and generate custom manuals.
