Under the Hood with Prolog Project Management

Posted by Holly Allison on Thu, Oct 31, 2013 @ 12:06 PM

My first car was a navy blue ’72 Ford Maverick.  (A lot of you are nodding, “Niiiiice – that’s a good tank of a car for a teenager.”)


Of course, my Mom insisted on the drivers’ education class to get a discount on the car insurance. She also taught me how to jack up the car and change the tires.  And we practiced how to use the jumper cables – she even made me write out a cheat sheet to have in the glove compartment.  Remember that this was all in the time before cell phones – so these skills were clutch.


It’s been almost 30 years since that Maverick.  Now my car emails me when its own onboard computer system detects a glitch or we pass over a mileage milestone for service.  A lot has changed.  But with the snowy New England winter coming on, those basic skills like jumping a car and changing a flat still come in


That’s how it is with construction software programs these days, too.  We need the basic set-up skills so we can get to the cool stuff.  In many cases, we were in such a rush to deploy the system that we skipped over some of the workflow set-up and now we’re not sure how to go back and fix it.


This Fridays with Trimble webinar is that refresher course – that “under the hood” training that’s so important.  We go through basics like how to configure the Prolog dashboard with cool things like the project webcam and weather and basics like role-based security.  We see how easy it is to add video to our Issues routing, but we’ll also see how to set up that routing in the first place.  And we see how easy it is to cull data from your project portfolio…if you set up your database correctly.


We know everyone loves using Prolog to keep projects organized and have all the information you need to know delivered directly to you.  But for this episode of Fridays with Trimble, wel pop the hood and see how it’s all connected.  Download the recorded webinar and watch it at a time that's convenient for you.
