Typical Apps for Building Managers or contractors:

Building information

Better Customer Experience for Tenants and their Employees

The App is personalized for each building or office. Within this app, we publish “mini-Apps” which are functions specifically designed for this property, based for instance on which amenities (e.g. conference & meeting rooms, service lifts, etc.) are available to book and when. Each of these Apps is “ready-made customizable” for your own needs

More productivity for staff & contractors

Employees and third-party contractors have access to a number of mini Apps specifically tailored to them to manage the properties and any requests made by tenants. All communication with tenants is saved in the App, which results in faster resolution of tenants requests instead of lost emails and phone calls without follow-up.

Works on any device

As all our apps can be used on a desktop or a mobile device, your staff are not tied to their desk. This means they can stay in contact with the tenants and update the status of any request while on the go, increasing their effectiveness and productivity.

Happy employees

Connected to your way of working

All our Apps can be easily and directly connected to avoid duplication of work and data. Here are a few examples:

  User Management and Information systems

Whether you use Yardi, entrata, Propco, Salesforce.com or another system, we can connect to your customer data repository for the right information at the right time.

  Document systems

Cloud on On-Premise? We have already connected to over 40 different types of content management systems, from SharePoint to ShareFile, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and many many more.

  Fast signatures, no paper

All our Apps natively integrate seamlessly with DocuSign to give you the best mobile digital signature experience and get your paperwork back to you the fastest way.

CONSTRUCTION & ENGINEERING APPS

Construction Apps and Engineering Apps make you more productive in the field. You are busy winning and delivering projects. You are at the epicentre of a web of owners, architects, designers, engineers, sub-contractors and lawyers and you need to keep everyone informed, up-to-date and compliant.

Point.io Apps for construction simplify hard to coordinate processes such as Subcontractor Administration & Management, Change Order Management and Release of Liens by bringing all aspects of the process into an experience all parties can participate in — wherever they are and on any device. In the car, in the field, in the trenches …. the place where work takes place is no longer a barrier to accomplishing the job.

Point.io helped the largest communications company in the world improve relationships with its board with our Boardroom App. This app gives external users direct access to the most recent and most confidential information the company has.

EVENTS & CONFERENCES

Events

Custom Apps for Events and Conferences

After so much preparation — arranging the right venue, lodging, transport, dining, speakers and signing up attendees — you need everyone to know where everything is, what time and where sessions are and try to get people to let you know during and after the event how you’ve done.

Traditional printed conference brochures are expensive, bulky and do not allow for last minute alterations, resulting in last minute stress and printing addenda.’

Our Apps for Events and Conferences feature a selection of ready-made components you can customize for your own event such as:

  • Registration
  • Agenda
  • View presentations/ Save to Cloud
  • Register for sessions
  • Speaker Bios
  • Venue details
  • Voting/Feedback
  • Twitter integration
  • LinkedIn integration

Our Apps for events and meetings are cost-effective for conference organizers; typically running 70-80% cheaper than printed agendas. They also offer great additional engagement opportunities, for instance voting and feedback with results immediately available for the organizer or presenter.

To find out how easy and inexpensive our apps for events are, contact us.

EDUCATION

Universities and schools bring together hundreds or thousands of students, parents, educators and personnel. Keeping track of who is supposed to be where, what’s happening and what to do next are integral part of running an efficient education establishment.

Email communication which has been frequently adopted as the standard is not performing. Email is one-directional, does not offer any form of structured response such as Yes/No, has no way to remind people who have not responded and is insecure.

Point.io has developed a set of apps for education to improve communication, for instance our Actionable Messaging Apps allow multiple levels of information to be sent by one party to multiple recipients for real responses — whether a signature, an answer or an approval. Campuses and Schools also benefit from our On-boarding Apps to make the process of bringing on a new student or staff so much more efficient. Our Board Meetings Apps are another area where many organizations can harness the power of digital to improve their operations.

Point.io lives and breathes “university” through our home on Drexel campus and our co-ops and interns who form an integral part of our company culture.

FINANCIAL SERVICES

Large Financial Services firms are finding themselves with a huge challenge as their IT budget is consumed by maintaining the legacy of fragile systems built over decades and leaves little room for innovation. Smaller firms have more flexibility but have traditionally shied away from innovating too early as the cost of technology could prove too much for their budget.

Point.io brings decades of experience in automating financial transactions in the largest institutions and offers a solution to automate work and create new apps at a fraction of the cost and at disruptive speed. We have worked with banks and Insurance companies and defined a number of ready-to-use customizable apps you can tweak to fit your own needs in a few days or weeks. All these apps can run in the cloud for faster deployment and can be securely integrated to your in-house on-premise information systems using our suite of connectors.

Direct Documentation App – Customers, partners or staff can access all their documents, statements, certificates securely with their own devices in your app.

Conditional Signatures – Use the combined power of Point.io workflow and DocuSign digital signatures to eliminate paper and accelerate your transactions.

Staff On-boarding – Why not use an app to coordinate your process from recruitment to on-boarding and give your new employees the best experience from the  beginning?

Events & Meetings – Publish a professional-looking app for a day or a week event as easily as putting together a PowerPoint presentation

LEGAL & CONSULTING

The “work anywhere” challenge for Legal and Consulting professionals

A major challenge facing today’s IT director is how to bridge the gap between the demand from application users for simplicity and ease-of-use, and the increasing security, data integrity and process requirements of the enterprise. Partners, lawyers and support staff are used to the ease with which they can access personal information and functionality on their favorite devices, but are frustrated by the difficulty of doing the same when it comes to the services they need to do their jobs.

This is accentuated when considering the increasingly mobile nature of today’s lawyers. Banning the use of Dropbox, OneDrive and other consumer equivalents because of security concerns, without providing a sensible alternative, is not a sustainable way forward for the IT department.

Work anywhere with Legal Custom Apps from Point.io

Point.io connects to over 30 industry-leading enterprise content management (ECM) and information storage solutions. These include iManage/WorkSite, OpenText, EMC Documentum, SharePoint, DropBox, OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, Google Drive, Salesforce, FTP and Windows shared drives.Point.io also integrates additional upcoming tools such as Docusign for digital signatures, increasing productivity and simplifying process.

The following video is an example of a sync App we built for a London-based global law firm. This is just one of many Apps we’ve built for Law firms. Others include:

  • Mobile Time Management
  • Employee on-boarding
  • NDA automation
