The integration between Reconstruct™ (http://www.reconstructinc.com/) and Sensera Systems allows for the automatic push of captured images from Sensera’s SiteCloud® platform into Reconstruct’s ‘Visual Command Center’— requiring no user involvement. Reconstruct transforms these site images into point clouds, where drawings can then be aligned and overlaid against photos. This helps validate quality and avoid rework. The integration fosters collaboration, progress and safety.
“We are extremely excited about our partnership with Sensera, especially about the synergies that are being created. Our customers can automatically visualize captured images from Sensera cameras within Reconstruct, and that makes quality validation more efficient,” said Zak MacRunnels, CEO of Reconstruct.
