Construction

In the construction industry, storage solutions proliferate and media increasingly is stored across multiple platforms.

“We tried going down the road of one-off integrations with each of these and seeing how much time and maintenance it's taken us. Kloudless gives us the ability to integrate with a lot of platforms with next to no maintenance. Bringing these integrations to market faster is something that allowed our product to focus on its own unique functionality and not the headache of integrations.”

The Solution

Thanks to their embedded integrations from Kloudless, StructionSite allows users to sync photos and drawings from StructionSite into a number of cloud storage services and project management tools automatically. StructionSite uses the Kloudless Storage API’s file and folder CRUD, download, and upload capabilities to connect, access and modify media files in apps such as PlanGrid and Box. For PlanGrid and other project management software, StructionSite uses one-way sync to pull in drawings. If the user changes drawings, those changes are retrieved automatically as well.

Users can also connect their individual cloud storage accounts via StructionSite’s implementation of the unified Kloudless OAuth flow, which abstracts away the specifics of authenticating with individual providers. StructionSite also takes advantage of the Kloudless File Picker to provide its users with an “out-of-the-box” UI tool that requires no additional work on the part of their developers.

The Results

Dan admits that if StructionSite had built each integration themselves, they would have spent twice as much development time on integrating with PlanGrid alone. Kloudless became their competitive differentiator and even allowed connections with the partners they had already built one-off connections to.

As he puts it, “We tried going down the road of one-off integrations with each of these and seeing how much time and maintenance it’s taken us. Kloudless gives us the ability to integrate with a lot of platforms with next to no maintenance. Bringing these integrations to market faster is something that allowed our product to focus on its own unique functionality and not the headache of integrations.”

In the future, StructionSite’s users will inevitably ask for more integrations to the cloud storage providers they keep their media stored in. When that happens, StructionSite can leverage Kloudless to easily and quickly connect to new systems at any time. Not only will they quickly hook up additional storage providers, but they’ll do so with quality support services from Kloudless at their disposal.

In this way, Kloudless enables StructionSite to fast track product innovation. For example, rather than dealing with integration outages, the engineering team can devote its time to improving StructionSite’s own core product.

Dan concludes, “Kloudless helps us to keep it simple and use all the features that the platform provides. Take it from us, don’t try to build it yourself if you don’t have to.”
