To support the digital transformation of the construction and engineering industry, Egnyte launches a unified content platform

prweb | February 11, 2021

Egnyte, the pioneer in cloud content joint effort and administration, today declared the arrival of Egnyte for Construction and Engineering, another stage to help development and designing (C&E) firms increment project efficiencies while additionally empowering an assortment of cloud-first cycles and encounters for customers, accomplices and representatives.

“C&E companies have historically ranked among some of the least digitized businesses, representing a more than $500B opportunity for productivity improvement in the US alone,” said Ronen Vengosh, VP of Construction and Engineering at Egnyte. “However, COVID-19 has unleashed a great acceleration in digital transformation across all sectors, and, with so much to gain and so much at stake, the speed of transformation among C&E firms over the past few months has been nothing short of breathtaking.”

Egnyte for Construction and Engineering empowers C&E organizations to:

Limit exorbitant deferrals on the place of work, utilizing record storing to keep up availability to basic computerized archives even in low (or no) data transmission conditions;

Give secure, far off admittance to huge documents (e.g., Revit, AutoCAD, VR/AR) for dispersed workers, customers, subtrades, and accomplices;

Empower a consistent encounter on versatile customers (telephones and tablets) for simple, cutting edge admittance to drawings, punch records, quality, wellbeing, and other basic documentation;

Moderate danger by getting and observing important and touchy substance progressively, and guaranteeing significant report maintenance and cancellation commitments are met, across undertakings, districts, and cloud applications.

What's more, Egnyte for Construction and Engineering gives groups one bound together report library across a broad gathering of the business' driving computerized applications, including Procore, Bluebeam, and Smartvid.io, just as level efficiency apparatuses like Microsoft 365, Google Workspace and Slack.

As per David Pratt, Director of Corporate and Operational Technology at Robins and Morton, one of the nation's driving expert manufacturers of new clinics and medical services offices, Egnyte's combinations with their current application stack is basic to the accomplishment of their tasks.

Hexagon Backs a New Digital Planning and Construction Center

Hexagon | June 02, 2021

Hexagon's Geosystems division partakes in another middle at ETH Zurich (Swiss Government Organization of Innovation) as an essential band together with a gift through the ETH Establishment more than six years. The middle for Computationally Increased Plan in Design, Designing and Development, known as Design++, is proposed to assist ETH with encouraging its internationally driving situation in advanced plan, arranging and development. The gift from Hexagon will fundamentally go towards building up another residency for Increased Computational Plan at the Design++ focus. The new focus means to foster advanced instruments and cycles that all the while improve configuration, help efficiency in the development interaction, increment the nature of structures and diminish their ecological effect. To this end, the spaces of design and structural designing fuse current information from computerized reasoning, zeroing in on AI and broadened reality. The middle and the new residency mean to fabricate a scaffold between design, structural designing, development and software engineering. "We are satisfied to report the association with ETH Zurich and Plan ++. We share the desire, reason, and business person soul with Plan ++. We are anticipating empowering experts to all the while increment efficiency, improve the nature of work measures, and generously lessen the ecological impression of the AEC business," says Thomas Harring, President Hexagon's Geosystems Division. "We have goal-oriented plans set up for AEC, and we are anxious to gain more from driving exploration foundations like Design++." "Innovation advancement is a basic achievement factor for our business and a critical component of our DNA. Turning into an essential accomplice of Design++ permits us to bring our center ability into the organization and empowers us to drive together this innovation advancement for the AEC business," stresses Burkhard Boeckem, CTO at Hexagon. "We are anticipating teaming up in visual registering, vivid plan, expanded reality, and speeding up insight based innovations in the AEC space through this solid and significant association."

EarthCam 4D Brings Construction Digital Twins to Life

EarthCam 4D | January 27, 2022

EarthCam, the leading provider of webcam technology and services, introduced EarthCam 4D, empowering virtual design and construction (VDC) teams to overlay and synch live imagery with their digital twins. An intuitive time-line allows users to scroll backward and forward in time to view live imagery in relation to their 4D models. Built on the Bentley iTwin platform, EarthCam 4D augments Bentley Systems’ SYNCHRO 4D models with high-resolution photos from multiple cameras throughout the jobsite, overlaid in precise alignment. Viewers can zoom in and out, and the associated live images remain synched. Unique transparency/opacity and model color adjustments enable new and powerful ways to compare and contrast models with reality over time. “EarthCam 4D is a great and quick tool to help communicate project schedule with our customer, trade partners and public,The ability to easily compare current and future states of work is valuable to project leadership teams.” -Michal D Wojtak, Mortenson’s Integrated Construction Director for sports and entertainment. We are delighted to collaborate with EarthCam, and their EarthCam 4D application, which allows for construction teams to monitor planned construction against actual progress. In addition, EarthCam’s solution integrates time-lapse imaging with interactive 3D models that are tied to the construction schedule data, adding tremendous value to clients,” said Sheena Gaynes, Director, Business Development, iTwin platform, at Bentley Systems. “In doing so, EarthCam joins the growing innovation ecosystem building digital twin applications on the Bentley iTwin platform. “Digital twins are radically increasing productivity in construction,Thanks to Bentley iTwin, we’re able to merge the highest resolution imagery from our cameras to SYNCHRO 4D models, and build valuable applications to increase our clients ROI.” -Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam The partnership between EarthCam and Bentley is bringing construction digital twins to life by simplifying the visual communication of project status to all stakeholders. Now anyone can compare what is happening on the jobsite to what was planned virtually within a simple web viewer powered by Bentley’s iTwin technology. By mixing 4D models from SYNCHRO with EarthCam’s reality models, all stakeholders on the project can quickly see the progress of the project, identify issues, and keep the project on time and on budget from anywhere,said Rich Humphrey, VP, Construction, at Bentley Systems. EarthCam 4D is the first solution that fully synchronizes time-sequenced images to 4D planning models - stakeholders no longer need multiple software interfaces and different stored image sources to access this critical comparative information. According to FMI, 13% of working hours are spent looking for project data and information. Having real-time imagery synched with a SYNCHRO 4D model in a single interface provides immediate, real-time evidence of every steel beam placement, and every window installation against 4D models, simplifying project management for SYNCHRO users worldwide. EarthCam 4D will be premiered at Bentley MOMENTUM, the developer showcase for digital twin solutions on January 26th. EarthCam’s Control Center 8 has long been the software of choice among industry leaders for smart project documentation, promotion and security. EarthCam is driving productivity for a more visually informative jobsite, providing camera rentals, same-day delivery and professional installation. EarthCam works with industry leaders around the globe to make construction project management less costly and more efficient using powerful visual data.
