Pinnacle Series Eagle Point Software creates innovative solutions which help Autodesk users increase productivity and take full advantage of their Autodesk software. We invited Kent Kraus to provide an overview of the company and its award winning solution. Starting in 1983 with our founders’ roots in engineering and architecture, Eagle Point set out to solve problems for clients in the AEC market and to help them take advantage of ever-changing technology. Through our 33 years of evolution, Eagle Point has moved from providing design tools, to putting our focus on helping our clients to take full advantage of the technology throughout their organization. This is accomplished through our flagship product, the Pinnacle Series. Pinnacle Series is a productivity solution that provides Autodesk users instant access to best practice Workflows, helpful Cheat Sheets, How-to videos, structured Learning Paths and best-in-class live support. Resources are accessed through a single concise interface allows users to overcome the everyday challenges they face using technology. Pinnacle Series differentiates itself from competition in the market by providing a complete solution that addresses three areas that negatively impact productivity with technology. Typical competing solutions are really only aimed at one area: training. Both traditional training and e-learning tools put an emphasis on learning functions of the application. Pinnacle Series ensures corporate best practices are followed by all users through customizable Workflows. Learning Paths are provided to train users on the software allowing them to increase their skill sets making them a more valuable asset to the organization. When users get stuck, they simply type in a search and are returned with How-to and Training Videos, Workflows, Cheat Sheets and Live Support to provide them with immediate answers keeping them productive. All content is customizable allowing for resident knowledge to easily be captured and made available to all users. As Eagle Point thinks longer term into the future, we subscribe to the belief that we should first think about problems that our customers face. Having identified those problems, we consider how we can leverage our strengths, market knowledge and technology advancements as a whole to bring new/better solutions to market. We do not approach our longer-term thinking by first developing innovative technologies and then looking for a problem that it solves. We are oriented toward first identifying problems and then developing innovative solutions. With these thoughts in mind, looking 10 years into the future, we will continue moving our solutions mobile where applicable. We will bring customers more value from the IoT and we will continue our push toward SaaS offerings. Ultimately we are excited and honored to receive this award. We always feel a sense of pride when our product is recognized by an outside publication. It is a credit to the hard work of our entire team, along with valuable input from our clients. This award continues to validate Pinnacle Series as a classleading system to implement, train and support technology.
