(Heerbrugg, Switzerland, 9 October 2019) - Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, announced today a new software upgrade for Leica iCON field software as the first development under the collaboration with Procore, a leading provider of construction management software.
The two industry-leading providers have integrated their services for collaboration across Leica iCON field software and Procore’s suite of construction management solutions, delivering overarching functionality and efficiency to customers. Opening up the way for new project management possibilities, the collaboration establishes cloud connection between iCON field software and Procore. Users will be able to seamlessly integrate and manage data, enhancing workflows between field and office.
“We are pleased to see our best-of-breed technology partners working together to improve our experience. We believe the integration between Leica iCON and Procore will increase productivity, accuracy and efficiency for our project team members,” said David Pratt, manager of BIM/VDC services at Robins & Morton.
Empowering the construction industry with digital solutions
By leveraging the data interoperability of iCON field software with various industry standard formats and the connectivity to Procore, field crews can now connect to cloud storage directly on-site, gaining access to previously inaccessible files. This integration will enable project managers to access and communicate the most up-to-date information and make quick decisions based on true field data.
“Construction professionals work with many different technologies, systems and tools that don't directly communicate with one another,” said Bernd Moeller, Leica Geosystems business director for field software solutions. “For any subsequent construction step the reliability and availability of the latest digital design data on site is crucial. Having the possibility to track progress with millimetre accuracy of as-built information enables these professionals to make decisions based on reliable field data.”
