Win More Bids and Grow Your Brand with Timelapse Videos from OpenSpace
September 19th, 2023
When you invest a ton of energy into your work and are proud of what you got done at the end of the day, it’s only natural to want to share it with your friends and family. The only trouble is, how do you share a construction project in a way that others can understand and appreciate it? Now, you can.
With the click of a button, OpenSpace customers can now have rich, compelling videos to showcase their projects in an exciting new way. The new desktop feature just released in OpenSpace Capture makes it easy for customers to generate videos of a single location shown over a period of time, with options for both fixed and rotating perspectives. OpenSpace will automatically generate a video for you and email you when the video is ready.
Exciting use cases for new jobsite timelapse videos
How can you use these new timelapse videos? In more ways than you might realize!
Win new bids
Your Sales team can use the videos to edge out your competitors and win more bids by giving them a taste of what it will be like to work with you. Add them to RFPs and watch the opportunities roll in.
Give Marketing a valuable new asset
Next, your Marketing team will be thrilled to have these brand-building videos to better showcase your company as a pioneering, innovative business that utilizes the best and newest technology. The adoption of AI-powered construction tech is becoming a point of pride among builders employing digital construction solutions. These powerful new video assets will level up your website and engage your audience.
Grow trust with owners
These videos can also help improve communication and transparency during a project. For our GC customers, you can now share timelapse videos with owners on your current projects to keep them updated on your progress. Then, create a timelapse video showing the project from start to finish for owners so they can generate revenue more efficiently after handover. You’ll build greater trust and might even earn additional jobs with the owners you’re already working with.
Increase internal adoption
Timelapse videos offer a particularly helpful way for Admins and power users to quickly share what their OpenSpace experience has been like with other teams looking to use OpenSpace for their projects. This leads to broader usage of OpenSpace across their portfolios by building trust based on visual confirmation. Having more users translates into greater consistency, accuracy, collaboration, and efficiency.
Build your personal brand
Finally, who doesn’t love a good sizzle reel? You and your team members can easily create videos to share your work with friends and colleagues on LinkedIn, Facebook, and other platforms in a way that just wasn’t feasible before. Build your own personal brand as an expert in the field and show off your accomplishments in a new, vivid way—with video evidence to back it up.
