An open ecosystem built on shared alliances gives contractors the freedom to select best-in-class vendors for every application, while maintaining interoperability and data portability.
SAN FRANCISCO, and SYDNEY (PRWEB) April 28, 2018
With established customer bases on opposite sides of the Pacific Ocean, Sydney, Australia-based Assignar and San Francisco, California-based Fieldwire will kick off this partnership by supporting one another in their home markets. As the partnership evolves, future development may include deeper platform integrations to deliver seamless solutions to customers of both platforms.
Assignar CEO Sean McCreanor stated, “We all know that construction is one of the least digitized industries globally, which has lead to a stagnation of overall productivity and increased cost. We see many platforms coming to market that solve daily productivity problems really well. However, market fragmentation makes customers reluctant to add, yet another app, to their business processes.”
“An open ecosystem built on shared alliances gives contractors the freedom to select best-in-class vendors for every application, while maintaining interoperability and data portability.”
Both companies look forward to take steps that help build the software ecosystem vision that seeded the partnership.
Yves Frinault, Fieldwire founder and CEO, said, "For the sake of breaking data silos, too many tools end up trying to do too much, often doing it poorly in the process. At Fieldwire we know that we are uniquely good at certain things and so is Assignar. Increased cooperation and integration between vendors allows us to deliver the highest quality service without creating data silos for the client. It's a proven model that is now widespread in many verticals from software to marketing and sales and there is no reason it should be any different in the construction industry."
