Quotes:

“We’re happy to serve people and help them be more efficient on their projects with time and money so they don’t have to work as hard and protect them from litigation because a photo could be worth a thousand words, but it could also be worth millions if things go wrong.” - Lee Mills, (2:10)

“It’s all about documenting maintenance projects faster, identifying them, sharing them, and getting them done faster. Saving time is the ultimate thing.” - Lee Mills, (11:07)

“Time is money. I’ve met with a lot of tech people, and more than one have told me their job is to save people in the field one minute a day. If you could save your team, regardless of the size, one minute a day, the math is mindblowing.” - Lee Mills, (16:39)

“Instead of texting, emailing, or calling, you get an instant notification in the app or an email, but it streamlines communication.” - Lee Mills, (26:17)

Unlocking Facility Management Efficiency with Pixly

On this episode of FM Evolution, host Shawn Black sits down with Lee Mills, co-founder and CEO of Pixly, a mobile application that allows users to collaborate on projects by making it easy to instantly capture, tag, and share project photos from anywhere. Lee has been in the technology space for over two decades, gaining experience launching new products, raising capital, and scaling startups. In this episode, Shawn and Lee discuss the benefits Pixly provides facility managers, how Pixly is improving the FM industry, and what sets Pixly apart from other platforms.

The Features of Pixly

Pixly’s goal is to provide a less cumbersome solution for sharing project documentation photos. Its simple interface is photo-first, meaning as soon as you open the app, it redirects to a camera and the project you last ended with. Pixly is the easiest and fastest way to document anything from general, everyday progress and observations to serious matters like delays, issues, and safety. Moreover, Pixly features a dashboard where users can view completed tasks or assign uncompleted tasks to a specific person.

“We’re happy to serve people and help them be more efficient on their projects with time and money so they don’t have to work as hard and protect them from litigation and disputes because a photo could be worth a thousand words, but it could also be worth millions if things go wrong.” - Lee Mills, (2:10)

Pixly greatly benefits businesses focused on architecture, engineering and construction, inspections, facility management, commercial real estate, landscaping, manufacturing, and more. Furthermore, Pixly can also be used on a smaller consumer scale for personal projects such as car restorations or even baby photos. Pixly offers unlimited photo storage in a secure cloud that’s accessible anytime and anywhere. All users have to do is snap a photo and it’s instantly shared in a live feed for all team members to see.

“Instead of texting, emailing, or calling, you get an instant notification in the app or an email, but it streamlines communication.” - Lee Mills, (26:17))

The Advantages of Using Pixly

For every industry, there’s a plethora of software that is constantly being updated or there’s better software being introduced. Because of this, Pixly has an application programming interface (API) where anything stored in Pixly can easily be exported to any API in another platform. What sets Pixly apart from other platforms is that it’s easy to use, there’s no training required, it immediately saves users time, it’s cost-effective, and it assists in keeping team members accountable and on the same page.

“Time is money. I’ve met with a lot of tech people, and more than one have told me their job is to save people in the field one minute a day. If you could save your team, regardless of the size, one minute a day, the math is mindblowing.” - Lee Mills, (16:39)

In the near future, Pixly is increasing its capabilities to include video capture, the ability to sync to maps and blueprints, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. These features will allow the app to automatically detect what was photographed. These additions support Pixly’s continued effort to democratize visual documentation and reduce the risk of projects ending in disputes.

“We’re happy to serve people and help them be more efficient on their projects with time and money so they don’t have to work as hard and protect them from litigation because a photo could be worth a thousand words, but it could also be worth millions if things go wrong.” - Lee Mills, (2:10)
