Thanks to all of the attendees who stopped by our booth, presentation, and hospitality suite at this year’s AACE Annual Meeting in Las Vegas. This was a great event, and we met a lot of engaging and accomplished construction owners and managers looking for better and easier ways to manage their projects.
Lydon Solutions was pleased to present our scalable project and information management solutions at the event. Visitors to our booth were able to see firsthand the powerful features of the Lydon Solutions Construction Program Management Portal, including custom dashboards, collaboration features, and easy reporting tools. Our integration with Oracle Primavera P6 generated quite a bit of buzz among construction professionals at the AACE event because it enables users to easily generate reports and interact with P6 data from within the Microsoft SharePoint portal. This provides a much needed option for teams to collaborate and run key reports outside of P6 – a definite time and cost saver! Read our “Oracle Primavera P6 hosting & SharePoint integration” blog post to learn more.
We also showed off a web-enabled Excel solution combining the rich functionality of the Excel Power Pivot add-on with the power of Microsoft SharePoint. This demo was a big hit with many AACE attendees because it demonstrated a simple way to use existing Excel cost reports, connect them to different data sources (including other Excel files), and utilize these reports as a robust cost-tracking application that is web-enabled. In fact, this demonstration was so popular, we will have more to say about web-enabling Excel to manage major projects in an upcoming blog post.
