  • About the Trainer

    Reef Fielding, IPM Global’s Technical Director, has been involved in the construction software industry for over 20 years. He was introduced to IT in 1987 working as a senior manager for Ernst & Young. He immediately saw the potential offered by software in helping companies become more efficient and save time and money by automating their business processes. In 1991 he started his first business built on reselling and supporting a market leading construction estimating and accounting suite. Reef quickly saw opportunities for add-on applications to address industry needs that were not being met in the suite’s existing product line, so he added software development to his resume and was so successful he sold some of his applications back to the publisher.

    In the early 2000’s the construction industry began to move from demanding back office applications to wanting to satisfy the operational side of their business and meeting the needs of field based project teams. Again, Reef saw an opportunity and looked for the right development environment to create the solution he envisioned. It took a few years but ultimately he found what he was looking for in Microsoft’s xRM platform. IPM was born and it continues to evolve around the growing appetite of the AEC industry for better utilization of technology to become more efficient, improve collaboration and grow their bottom line.
