Dear InFocus Clients,

Earlier this year, we published a letter to our current and prospective customers saying "Join us." Join us in rejecting the status quo of unsupported legacy products. Join us in imagining what the future of A/E might look like with better software. In this call we made a promise to our customers that we would tether our next season of growth to three distinct pillars: product development, user engagement, and market awareness. We are so proud of the momentum and progress we've made toward these ends in 2019. We have felt the excitement underlying our dreams of ushering in a new era of excellence in the A/E software space, and we hope you have felt it, too. At Clearview, we are dedicated to keeping our word to you by delivering on our objectives. Here are some of the ways we have made progress toward our pillars this year:

 


 

 

Clearview Partners

 

Clearview Software is excited to announce new partnerships with Technik Solutions Group and 9Dots Management. Our partners are available to work closely with our clients on implementation, custom solutions and consulting for our project-based accounting software designed for architecture and engineering firms. 

 


 

 

 


 

I joined Clearview Software just over a year ago and have received an increasingly large number of requests asking me to explain what I found after joining. “So, how does Clearview compare to Deltek” is a weekly – if not daily - question.

 

First off, you need to know that prior to joining Clearview I had an inkling that the ‘engine under the hood’ would be impressive. This was due to the fact that I had previously worked with one of the co-founders and developers. He had developed a real-time accounting/project management system decades ago that was ahead of its’ time. Therefore, I had a pretty good idea that it would be impressive. To be frank, I found it to be way beyond what I imagined it would be and indeed, has functionality surpassing not just ERP software in the Architectural/Engineering/Professional Services vertical markets, but in any market.

 

Sounds bold and self serving, I know. However, after 25 years of working in the A/E ERP space I do not say that lightly. It is an untold story that I will begin to unpack over the coming weeks and months here – and one that I enjoy showing off. Why untold? Well, let me just say that when a company is run by a team of software developers ‘marketing’ is not high on the list of preferred/enjoyable tasks. I think they rate it right up there with raking leaves or putting on suits to attend a large social gathering (sorry guys, had to say it).

 


 

Clearview's Lunch & Learns have been making stops all over North America, connecting InFocus users and prospects in real life! Our next stop is Texas, and we're coming to three cities: Houston, Dallas, and Austin. If you're in one of these areas, be sure to join us! More details below.

 


 

We are excited to introduce a brand new webinar series focused specifically on best practices for managing your projects!

Dear InFocus Clients,

 


 

Clearview Office Space 1

Last month Clearview moved into a spacious new facility. The offices are inside the Center for Advanced Engineering and Research in Bedford County, Virginia. The space lets us do things that weren't possible before, like hosting local tech meet-ups and on-site client training. Even as this post is being written there's a training session in progress. We're excited about this new chapter at Clearview!
