Building the Future: A Year-End Review and Look Ahead from Our CEO, Todd McCann

As we begin 2024, I find myself in a contemplative mood, reflecting on the year that has passed and the exciting times that lie ahead. It's been a remarkable year, particularly in AI and construction, sectors that have grown and thrived with innovation. At the heart of this evolution have been you, our valued customers, whose engagement and trust have been instrumental in our journey.

2023: A Year in Review

Thanking Our Customers: It's impossible to talk about 2023 without acknowledging your essential role in our story. Your support and insightful feedback have been the bedrock of our growth and the driving force behind our quest to simplify complex workflows and tackle the challenges of capturing difficult footage. Your trust in our vision has been a constant source of motivation.

AI's Increasing Role: The journey of AI this year has been nothing short of revolutionary. Moving beyond a futuristic concept, it has become an indispensable part of our daily operations. AI has proven crucial in the construction industry, where challenges are as substantial as the structures we build, enhancing efficiency and fostering innovation.

Insights into Construction Spending: Data from the U.S. Census Bureau highlighted increased non-residential construction spending. However, it's crucial to understand the nuances behind these numbers. The rise is not merely a sign of more projects but reflects the escalating costs due to inflation, increased material prices, and labor shortages. This trend underscores the importance of efficiency and cost-effectiveness in our operations.

Notable Construction Projects: 2023 also brought to light some remarkable construction feats. The unveiling of the Las Vegas Sphere was a testament to modern engineering and architectural brilliance. Similarly, the development of the Buffalo Bills Stadium in New York is underway, a project worth $1.4 billion, marking a significant milestone in sports infrastructure.

Reflections and Insights

Our path this year has been about embracing challenges and capitalizing on opportunities. Our commitment to simplifying complex tasks, particularly in capturing challenging construction footage, has resonated well with the industry's shift toward innovation and efficiency. A highlight for us was the introduction of Jobsite Intelligence. This tool embodies our vision and revolutionizes how construction sites are managed and monitored, improving productivity and safety.

Looking Ahead to 2024

As we look towards 2024, our aspirations soar even higher. We remain committed to demystifying complex processes and bringing cutting-edge technology within easy reach. The new year promises to be one of continued growth and innovation.

The upcoming product launches and announcements are something we eagerly anticipate. We anticipate a surge in smart construction solutions, with AI playing a central role in project management, design optimization, and operational efficiency.

As we say goodbye to 2023 and usher in 2024, we do so with gratitude and enthusiasm. Your partnership is vital in our journey towards innovation and excellence. Let's enter this new year together, ready to embrace its opportunities.
