Livermore, US: Topcon Group announced a cloud-based enterprise solution and cloud-enabled family of software applications – Magnet – for all precise positioning projects. The new software solution made it possible for real-time collaboration between project manager, field crews, office personnel, engineers, or consultants. Magnet was unveiled at Intergeo in Nuremberg, Germany.
Ray O’Connor, president and CEO of Topcon Positioning Systems, said, “For the first time, there’s a software solution that combines every facet of managing a company’s projects, data, and assets. Management, communication and collaboration across multiple projects and teams have never been easier.”
O’Connor stressed, “The heart of Magnet is a cloud-based web environment that connects every user within a company to each other, within the productivity application you use, or by simply logging in using your web browser.” He added, “We looked at all types of survey and construction firms and listened to end-users about what they wanted from their positioning and project management application and services. We had a singular goal, which was to make our customers more productive across all of the tools we offer, and let them control the environment to fit their needs and that is the genesis of Magnet. You can visualise all of your company’s projects, job files, equipment assets, and even plot job points, lines, and areas on a familiar map interface.”
Key features of Magnet include:
— Enterprise: Magnet makes it easy to store and access all company and project data from a cloud environment. Track assets, manage projects, exchange data, and communicate in real-time.
