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.
Glaass Enterprise Training
We designed Glaass with a vision for it to be used by everyone on a project. Regardless of your technical skills, Glaass enables you to access important project information that empowers you to perform your role quicker and easier than any other platform. Of course, introducing Glaass on a project is a change for any organisation, which is why we’ve created a training session to help your team get started, here’s everything you need to know about it.
Glaass Update 2.0
2016 was a feature-filled year for Glaass; we celebrated our public launch, transitioned from a startup into a small company, deployed four major updates and held presentations with forward thinking construction companies across the world. With our attention now locked on the year ahead, we wanted to share a brief update with our followers, this is update 2.0!
Glaass Introduces Customisation!
Customisation is here! After months of planning, developing and extensive testing, we’re excited to release our powerful customisation feature. Users with Document Controller permission can now customise cases to suit any construction or engineering discipline.
How We’re Digitalising Construction
Microsoft Office files are unfortunately synonymous amongst construction and infrastructure projects around the world. There’s no denying using Office documents to record your project is an inefficient and outdated business process. What’s worse is that these files exponentially increase a projects physical paper trail. If that’s the case, then why is Office so popular? It’s because it’s highly versatile. It’s customisable to virtually any application whether it be an inspection form, concrete test or defect register. That’s the strongest asset of Office.
Artists & Influencers Part 1
Artists and influencers is a series dedicated to the people I’ve drawn inspiration from throughout the journey of creating Glaass. The catalyst of any creative venture is a culmination of experiences, surroundings and beliefs. These are the people who’ve shaped my art.
Glaass Contract Options
Legal documents are the antithesis of fun, which is why we created simple contracts that are versatile and clear. Regardless of your construction application, size or complexity; we have a contract that suits your project. In this blog we’ll outline the various options and discuss their key differences.
Getting started is just three simple steps:
1. Tell us about your project
2. We’ll create a quote
3. Select your contract type
Glaass Public Launch
The whole team is exhilarated to announce that our free trial will be available to the public on July 20, 2016 at 20:00 UTC +01:00. Having successfully implemented Glaass on a trial project, we’re ready to publicly launch what we believe is the future of construction. This is your chance to play with our innovation first hand. If you love it, share the invitation with your colleagues, we’re looking forward to your feedback!
Accessibility on Devices
If you’ve read our earlier blogs, or are familiar with the construction industry, you’ll understand the frustration of recording, tracking and tracing project information across a series of disconnected, inefficient systems. More annoyingly, these detached systems are rarely mobile. It’s an inadequate combination for enterprise scale infrastructure projects that require efficient information dissemination and management. Organisation is the first step to success, with Glaass we’ve leveraged the power of technology to actively keep your project on track.
