San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 28, 2013
The construction industry networking and hiring website ConstructionConnection.com is proud to announce the newest member of their partners program: Threshold. Threshold is a growing California-based software company that developed the Threshold app, a unique mobile app designed for managing and sharing construction progress photos. Together, the companies continue to work toward their shared mission of helping small and mid-sized construction companies use technology to streamline their businesses and bring the construction industry into the 21st century.
Construction Connection is an industry leader as a networking, educational and hiring resource for construction companies and individuals across the US. By signing up and completing the free registration, individuals can search and apply to construction jobs of all levels, and construction companies can post available jobs at no cost. The site‘s patent-pending job matching system will then pair well-qualified individuals with jobs that suit their skillsets. While the hiring aspect of the site is a major draw for new members, the site also boasts a wealth of other free resources such as educational blogs and reaching out to the Construction Connection partners. The partners provide valuable services tailored to the construction industry.
Threshold is the newest member of the Construction Connection partners. They will join other partners, including engineers, attorneys, consultants, educators and more, in offering members vital resources and services. Threshold is a new software developed over the past year and a half and launched in November of 2012. The app gives users an easy way to take, organize, and share construction jobsite progress photographs. Contractors and project managers can use the app to easily see a project’s progress, but it is also a tool for their clients. The app was developed when Threshold COO Adam Freeman saw an opportunity for streamlining construction management.
Freeman studied construction management at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and spent five years working in residential and commercial construction project management. During his time spent on jobsites, he realized that one of the shortcomings of many project managers was their inability to give their clients accurate and up to the minute progress reports. Using the Threshold software, engineers, architects, subcontractors, tradesmen, superintendents and more can simply take pictures of the progress and quickly share them with their team members and clients. The photos are saved in the context of the plans, so project team members can quickly find them. The increased transparency keeps clients in the loop and holds contractors accountable. When the Threshold founders discovered Construction Connection and their vision for bringing the antiquated construction industry online, they knew they had found a kindred spirit.
“I found Construction Connection a while back when I was researching construction blogs. Since our launch, we wanted to partner with Construction Connection because they’re targeting the same demographics as us: mid-sized construction companies,” explains Freeman. “Other marketing outlets like advertising in industry magazines only targets huge companies, but we want to reach the smaller businesses.”
The Threshold app was designed with user-friendliness in mind. Taking their cues from popular social sharing sites, the Threshold developers created an app with a familiar, easy-to-use interface. The design is straightforward, clean and easy to follow, which makes the software even more valuable. Threshold does not hope to simply attract more users, but to help improve a crucial step in the residential and commercial construction processes.
“What we hope to gain from our partnership is two-fold. We of course want to gain more users, but we also want to become a thought-leader. Like Construction Connection, we want to keep people in the industry up to date on business trends, like going mobile.” Construction Connection shares a similar mission in their goal of getting all small and mid-sized construction companies online. Both forward-thinking companies stand to expand drastically as the construction industry gets on board with the online business model.
ConstructionConnection.com was created out of a need for a more effective and streamlined way for construction industry professionals to get matched with the right industry jobs and with the right industry opportunities. The founders of Construction Connection listened to both company and individuals’ dissatisfaction with the traditional job boards, the paid resume blasts, and overall lack of sympathy toward the individual candidate. They also listened to the dissatisfaction from companies who post jobs only to get many irrelevant results or have to purchase high priced ads to showcase their company. Construction Connection is a patent-pending, one-of-a- kind profile creating / match-making system. The system delivers effective results. Construction Connection saves time, money and aggravation by matching people to people, people to companies, companies to people, and company to company.
383 Studio, Inc. is the maker of Threshold. It is a privately held software company, founded by Adam Freeman and Philippe Gauthier. They believe in creating software that helps bring an old and antiquated industry into the 21st century. The construction industry has plenty of bloated software packages that are difficult to learn, expensive to implement, and restrictive in their use. Threshold is creating great software that's inexpensive, intuitive, and easy to share.
