Building a Better Process
The marketing department at JHL Constructors wanted a more efficient way to capture project progress photos for internal and external communication. They were contending with thousands of images uploaded from drones, phones and in-the-field teams.
This case study explores how the OpenAsset-Procore Connector enabled JHL to not only facilitate process improvements, but also empower their sales and marketing teams with prioritized project photos they wanted to grow their business.
Challenge: Drones, Phones and Clutter Prone
JHL uses Procore Construction Software to collect and leverage the job site photos they use to track project progress and create high-quality sales, branding and marketing material. Unfortunately, the tremendous volume of photos coming in from the field made it difficult to find, manage and, ultimately, use the valuable digital assets in their archive. Enter the OpenAsset-Procore Connector.
Solution: Push Project Images Directly from Procore into OpenAsset with the OpenAsset-Procore Connector
Built to enable the seamless upload of images from Procore into your OpenAsset DAM, the OpenAsset-Procore Connector makes it easy to find and access images whenever they are needed. That means your team can tell the story of each project as it progresses – a capability that is incredibly valuable in terms of project management, sales, marketing and branding.
AEC firms pay thousands of dollars for the technology to capture and collect the project photos and video they use in sales collateral, marketing material and branded media.
By enabling users to push images from their Procore solution directly into their DAM, the OpenAsset-Procore Connector provides teams with a bird’s eye view of the project archive, thus making it easier to cherry-pick the best, most aesthetically pleasing project photos for use in:
- sales collateral,
- branded media,
- marketing campaigns,
- and more.
Organizing thousands of jobsite photos is a massively time-consuming task, especially when image files are disorganized and found in several different storage locations. Fortunately, the OpenAsset-Procore connector enables your team to push project photos directly from Procore into your DAM, saving teams the hassle of manually hunting down and organizing thousands of disparate project photos.
Users can also create photo tags and add those to photos uploaded to OpenAsset. Teams can then decide what tagging logic they want to use to best capture the information and create photo tags for their project accordingly.
Keep Managers and Investors Up to Date
Project photos are a great way to keep project managers informed, and investors up to date on the status of their investment.
The OpenAsset-Procore connector enables your team to quickly and efficiently push project photos from Procore into OpenAsset, where they are easily compiled for use in progress reports and status updates.
Streamline Site Inspections
Site inspections are a necessary part of every building project. The ability to push project photos from Procore directly into OpenAsset enables field, safety and operations teams to easily and readily collaborate over site issues via the swift exchange of image and video information.
In other words, the OpenAsset-Procore Connector makes it easier for your team to find and eliminate safety concerns by exchanging photos of the issue and deliberating before it becomes an accident or a costly violation.
