FAQ

What is the technology?

BuildingBlocks is entirely web-based software. You can access it from any computer with an internet connection, and is also mobile-friendly. No installation is required.

Do I have to input my own data?

No. We do all the work to integrate and update all the data you want to see and use in the application.

How do we keep the data updated?

Our data engineering team specializing in establishing safe, secure connections to your systems or other data sources through which we can retrieve and upload your data.

Are there restrictions on the app?

The only requirement for the data to be used is that it relates to a location, property, or area. We can work with existing business system data or other offline information, such as spreadsheets.

What about my existing systems and technologies?

Keep them! Don’t change anything if you don’t want to. We work with almost any existing brand – Accela, ESRI, Tyler, Sunguard, Infor/Hansen, Oracle, MS SQL Server, Socrata, etc. And if you plan to make changes in the future, we’ll do the work to update the connections.

How long does it take to implement?

BuildingBlocks is usually fully operational in 4–6 weeks, requiring about 1-2 days of time from your IT team to help us get it launched.
