Pembroke, MA – Hoylu, a visual ideation and collaboration provider headquartered in Sweden with offices in North America, Asia, and Europe, recently announced it has received over $250,000 in orders from Suffolk Construction, one of the largest construction companies in the United States.
The orders represent an expansion of Hoylu’s business with Suffolk, who have been customers of Hoylu’s products and services since 2016, starting with the Huddlewall, a packaged solution that provides a turnkey product that includes hardware, software, and ideation materials. The Hoylu Huddlewall features an expansive ideation space that provides workstation performance and additional screen real estate for reviewing CAD files, editing blueprints, enabling web applications for Lean planning, or performing interactive brainstorming sessions with pen-based interaction. The product also features the Hoylu Inspiration Suite of software, designed to help teams work faster and more interactively and create a clear ROI for enterprise-level collaboration. Finding effective ways for teams to interact while viewing 3D models of complex buildings and conducting Lean planning is a high priority within the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) community.
“Suffolk’s vision is to transform the construction experience by building smart,” said Chris Mayer, chief innovation officer at Suffolk. “By adding sophisticated new tools and technologies such as the Hoylu Huddlewall to our toolbox, we will be able to manage our projects with more efficiencies, provide clients a more predictable and enjoyable experience, and revolutionize our industry.”
“Many construction companies have tried using smart boards to help facilitate team collaboration, but run into software limitations. In addition to our own collaboration and ideation software, Hoylu Huddlewall is an open platform that can run all of the existing third-party applications that AEC firms know and use today. But now these products can be used on a huge display in a big room, ideal for team collaboration and planning,” says Andrew Jamison, vice president of sales US at Hoylu.
