Montreal-based professional project management services firm CREO Solutions has entered into an agreement with Versatile Inc., a Bay Area construction technology company, to bring Versatile’s CraneView system to the Canadian market.
From high above a jobsite, CraneView collects data to leverage the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT) to help general contractors optimize construction processes.
The system analyzes thousands of data points from under the hook of any crane to deliver insights on jobsite performance and to help streamline decision-making. The technology offers production data to provide visibility into crane utilization, outliers, construction progress, and more.
“We believe data is an incredibly powerful tool on the jobsite and insights from CraneView will make operational processes more transparent and efficient,” said Enzo Conte, CEO of CREO Solutions. “Deploying artificial intelligence on construction sites is a logical next step to complement CREO Solutions’ technological offerings.”
Innovation and process improvements in the construction industry have been a major focus for CREO Solutions. Founded in 2010, the company was among the first in Quebec to use cloud-based collaborative platforms and implement recognized project management best practices. Its team of professionals supports the construction industry with an aim to optimize operations through data analytics.
“As we continue to expand throughout North America, it’s important for our clients to have access to expert, local representatives,” said Meirav Oren, CEO and co-founder of Versatile. “We’re excited to provide capable boots on the ground through our partnership with CREO Solutions.”
