Training and development has become a big challenge for most architecture, engineering, construction and owner/operator (AECO) firms, as they try to ensure that their staff is up-to-date on the newest technology for design. While building a strong training and development program is essential, firms are also looking to technology to help them solve their training and education needs. If there is one technology company that is leading the way when it comes to solving these challenges it is Eagle Point Software with one of their most prominent products the Pinnacle Series.
Eagle Point’s Pinnacle Series allows users to find solutions for design challenges that helps organizations improve their learning methods and enhance information sharing. This is done through multiple resources which are combined into a single and comprehensive interface that helps AECO talent discover new solutions and improve their workflows. On November 10th, Microdesk and Eagle Point held an open forum at the AIA Chicago office. Steve Biver, Director of Global Sales and Marketing at Eagle Point, gave a presentation to attendees on some of the product’s most useful and innovative features.
Here are a few key features of the Pinnacle Series that you should know about:
Workflows are essential to ensure that the design process for a project is efficient and cost effective. With the Pinnacle Series, users are shown step-by-step processes that are needed to complete their design work. This helps create a successful production environment that can guide users on executing best practices for standard procedures. This is done through onscreen instructions that enable designers to learn and implement these workflows to wide variety of projects.
Part of improving a workflow is understanding the different ways something can be accomplished when using design tools. Pinnacle Series’ Cheat Sheets feature gives users the capability to access information in short and searchable bits. This makes getting answers for frequently asked questions or understanding the best tips and tricks that much easier, when trying to overcome a design challenge. By having this information readily available at a user’s fingertips, it helps them find the answer they are looking for in a quick and efficient manner.
When deeper information is needed on how to improve a workflow or execute a design process more efficiently, the Pinnacle Series uses videos that gives users deeper training concepts. Comprehensive “how-to” videos and various recorded training classes are included in a video library. With this feature, users can access the needed information that is easy to understand and presented in a very engaging manner.
