Portland, Ore. (PRWEB) March 09, 2015
Viewpoint Construction Software’s Business Incubator team announces the availability of ShareMyToolbox, an innovative tool sharing application that allows anyone with an inventory of tools to share and use tools with others in his or her workplace or community. Building upon the benefits of the sharing movement within social networks, the ShareMyToolbox app allows users to choose who can share their tools, track who has their tools and tracks when they need to be returned. A DIY’er would use ShareMyToolbox to create a social network of power tool users who can help with home projects, while a contractor would use ShareMyToolbox to track the tools being used by each of its project crews. The app is available for free download on the iTunes site. To learn more about ShareMyToolbox, visit: http://www.sharemytoolbox.com/
The launch of ShareMyToolbox commemorates the first product available from Viewpoint’s Business Incubator (VBI) program. Viewpoint created the program in 2014 to encourage an entrepreneurial environment in which novel business concepts and product ideas serving the construction market are seeded and quickly executed upon by Viewpoint team members.
“Viewpoint values invention and collaboration at many levels, and the availability of ShareMyToolbox is just one example as to how an incubator program can jump-start and encourage new product development from a grass-roots level,” stated Jay Haladay, CEO of Viewpoint. “Viewpoint recognizes that businesses benefit from feedback and input from industry experts and customers as well as from speed in innovation, decision-making and creative execution, and the VBI allows us to do just that. Our innovative culture helped us get as far as we have, and the VBI helps us institutionalize our innovation to ensure that Viewpoint stays at the forefront of products and technology for the next century.”
