Newest Multivista franchise offers visual construction documentation services in Central America’s second largest and fastest growing economy.
Phoenix, Arizona, March 15, 2016 – Construction is booming in Panama and Multivista, the leader in visual construction documentation services, is excited to be a part of Central America’s fastest growing economy with its newest franchise—Multivista Panama.
New franchise owners, Angel Davila and Ramon Colina, are perfectly positioned to successfully launch Multivista’s first location in Central America and bring the exclusive web-based software featuring construction photo, video, and webcam services to the rapidly expanding construction and facilities management industries across the entire country.
“It is no secret that the construction spend in Panama has been on the rise during the last seven years,” says Davila. “We have survived every recession and we still see overall spending going up. Ramon and I clearly see the necessity for a tool like Multivista to help improve construction project accountability, quality control, and transparency.”
Both Davila and Colina bring local market knowledge and industry experience to Multivista Panama. Davila worked in the banking industry as a Corporate Banking Officer servicing the construction loans sector. “I managed a very dynamic portfolio of clients and large corporate accounts,” Davila said. “This gave me a solid understanding of the financial aspects and processes of our local construction industry, as well as insight into how rework, construction errors, claims, legal actions, and the lack of documentation can severely affect a project’s financials.”
Ramon Colina also has significant experience in banking, sales, and construction. In 2013, Colina left the banking industry to manage Grupo Colina, a family-owned group of companies that specialize in general contracting, marine construction, land ownership and development, and water supply and installation. Colina said, “The experience with my family’s business and the existing relationships within the local industry will be a big help to grow our sales with Multivista.”
Multivista construction documentation captures progressive visual records of actual construction conditions that can be accessed via an integrated software platform. The system and services improve jobsite productivity and collaboration throughout a building’s life cycle.
Multivista Panama will serve the entire Republic of Panama including Panama City, home to nearly half of the country’s 3.9 million people. Both Colina and Davila expect their new Multivista franchise to have immediate effects on Panama’s construction industry. “With Multivista, project teams can record and document every square foot at every milestone during the entire construction process” said Davila. “We are looking forward to driving industry-wide adoption and seeing Multivista become a recognized, valued tool in Central America.”
