LAS VEGAS, Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- To meet the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry's need for fast, realistic plans and real-time collaboration, VIZERRA ®, developer of the unique interactive 3D platform, is introducing REVIZTO™ during Autodesk University, Nov. 27-29, 2012 at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas. REVIZTO, a simple cloud-based collaboration software for Autodesk ® Revit and Trimble ® SketchUp users, clarifies communication between AEC professionals and non-design focused clients, allowing all parties to work together more effectively.
REVIZTO, which is Latin for "visual check," helps AEC professionals avoid project complications by working in real time through 3D technology, without having to learn a new software program. An Autodesk ® Revit or Trimble ® SketchUp project can be turned into an interactive, data-rich 3D environment in minutes. The result is a Visual Information Model (VIM) that can easily be shared with the entire team in a cloud environment, including the associated video notes, markers and screenshots.
"Collaboration has been a challenge in the AEC sector, as a project's complex data and various plans have traditionally been controlled and managed by only one source at a time," said Arman Gukasyan, chief executive officer at VIZERRA. "This has made it difficult to anticipate and avoid complications as they arise — not to mention the tedious, time-consuming process of different parties incorporating individual data into the overall plan. REVIZTO allows AEC professionals to share and update data quickly and easily, and clearly present their vision of the cohesive project to the client."
REVIZTO's development came to fruition over the past five years, while VIZERRA was providing software as a service to expansive, worldwide projects, such as Barcelona, Spain's city planning and the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. During this time, VIZERRA identified the need for an easy collaboration tool to connect all associated parties with the project, including non-AEC decision makers."For owners and other stakeholders, it can be hard to visualize a project's many layers without having to learn and install complicated software – especially for those halfway across the world who do not have a strong designer background," said Gukasyan. "REVIZTO makes it possible for the AEC professional to visually convey the project to stakeholders in a way that will make all parties happy."
