Allows Procore users to collaborate with visual site context for faster issue resolution
Matterport has extended its collaboration with Procore Technologies, so users of Pro-core’s construction management software can now use features such as RFIs, Observations, and Coordination Issues directly within Matterport’s ‘digital twins’.
The aim is to create a ‘visual system-of-record’ for site conditions that anyone on a project can track, with a view to reducing project inaccuracies or misunderstandings between stakeholders that can lead to rework or costly delays.
Matterport uses a combination of artificial intelligence and LiDAR-enhanced 3D cameras to transform physical buildings and spaces into what the company describes as photorealistic digital twins.
These ‘easy to navigate’ 3D spaces help design and construction specialists collaborate when working remotely, reducing the need for site visits. According to the company, when combined with detailed point cloud data generated per scan, digital twins can reduce site survey and BIM creation costs as much as 70%.
