Delivering a product to facilitate
pragmatically zero lag collaboration
in a construction project.

MAXIMESS partnered with client from ideation to development & delivered a team collaboration product, hosted over the cloud and available over Web, iPad, and Android Tab.

Summary 

Our client is a seasoned consultant in the construction industry. With the significant stretches of understanding, he has dismembered a few troubles and required solutions through a product in the construction industry which can revolutionize the way industry is operating now

The first critical success milestone of the project was when MAXIMESS helped the client through its comprehensive R&D efforts to make the key innovations possible justifying the very existence of the product.

The second success milestone was carved with extremely complicated engineering achieved out of integrating all the technological solutions across platforms including cloud backend, web frontend, iPhone, iPad, Android phone & tab. This made the real-time collaboration possible in literally brick & mortar industries like construction saving huge time and money of the projects and adding ease to the life of General Contractors (GCs) and other stakeholders.
