What we REALLY do with your data
One of the most frequent and immediate questions we’re asked is “where is our project data stored?” How well project data and user information is stored is a major factor to businesses when selecting a software vendor. Information must be secure, protected and able to be restored at all times.
We’re proud to say that Glaass exclusively employs Microsoft Azure Cloud Storage. In fact, we only use Azure services to power our application as Microsoft boast class leading security, reliability and performance across their entire product range.
What’s Coming Next to Glaass
We pride ourselves on creating a platform that prioritises quality over quantity. We believe this philosophy leads to the best possible user experience which is pivotal in combating resistance to change. This approach makes striking the right balance between building new features and refining existing ones a constant challenge.
Say Hello to New Construction Tools
At the heart of our creation is a clear vision to provide construction projects with a platform that not only sets clear guidelines, but intuitively streamlines the workflow of every user, facilitating efficiency and accuracy.
We’ve achieved this environment through understanding the unequivocal needs of project personnel, and then building tools designed specifically for them. Whether you’re a foreman, engineer or manager; we made Glaass a technology platform for you, here’s how.
Everything Coming in 6.1
Released in mid-March, Version 6.0 was our most significant update since debuting Glaass. We’re closing in on a new round of features in pursuit of creating the ultimate construction management platform for contractors; this is what’s coming next.
Our 3 Design Rules
Whenever we design new elements in Glaass, we strictly follow three core user interface principals. These are in place to ensure our new features align with our existing design ethos and are so easy to use, they require no explanation or training. These are our rules!
Release Notes Version 6.0
6.0 15th of March 2017
Welcome to the biggest release of Glaass since our unveiling. Version six is an entire back-end optimisation focused on increasing performance and stability by adopting advanced web development techniques. This update delivers colossal performance improvements, interface tweaks throughout and an assortment of new features.
Why we delayed our biggest release
I was in two minds as to whether I should share this or not. I was uncertain if it would be interpreted as failure or even poor leadership. My reasoning for sharing is simple; I want Glaass to be a company that stands for transparency. Not sharing would go against our core values.
Last month we announced the release of version 6.0 for late-February 2017. That’s unfortunately been moved to late-March 2017. We began development of version 6.0 in November 2016, immediately after the release of version 5.2.
Glaass’ Fundamental Aspect
In the early stages of designing Glaass we faced a decision that would go on to impact a major component of our platform – how to best record, organise and manage project data in a way that is accountable, traceable and inherently simple. We found a way, and it’s called cases.
You might be wondering, what on earth is a case? It’s an entire thread of correspondence, information and data about a particular task or problem in one place as a permanent project record.
