SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Cupix, the fast-growing pioneer of cutting-edge 3D digital twin solutions for building owners and the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industries, today announced the expanded integration of its CupixWorks 3D digital twin platform with Procore Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of construction management software.
Unique in the industry, Cupix’s integration with Procore delivers a 360-degree panoramic view with full 3D spatial context, enabling users to search locations within a job site by the names they already use, e.g. main lobby, conference room A, conference room B, all without having to leave the Procore platform or alter Procore’s normal operations.
Cupix’s real-time 3D digital twin collaboration tool, SiteView, offers life-like virtual remote site navigation, progress tracking, as-built vs. BIM analysis, 3D measurements, and 3D annotations. Since Cupix’s SiteView virtual representation of a job site can be embedded in the Procore platform, users can remotely “walk through” a job site, navigating to the location of RFIs, observations and open items, and searching by location names. Additionally, users are able to review job sites retrospectively, enabling teams to review iterative progress on a job site dating back days, weeks or months.
Requiring minimal set-up and intuitive ease-of-use for Procore users, the integration is underpinned by Cupix’s streamlined onboarding approach, freeing construction project managers of any set-up requirements. All project managers need to do is to jump to the point of interest within a job site and navigate inside SiteView to get started.
Cupix’s expanded integration with Procore is winning praise from customers across the AEC sector.
“We’ve been working with Cupix for about three years and their technology gives us the ability to zero in on any element of any job site and to be able to see exactly what’s going on,” said Shane Flanagan, senior project manager at Dome Construction, a San Francisco-based firm specializing in healthcare, tenant improvements, life sciences, and biotech construction.
Flanagan added, “Before Cupix, we used to send cell phone pictures back and forth, or try to use Facetime. Now, using just an off-the-shelf 360-degree camera, Cupix gives us the full context to solve problems. Bottom line: it saves a lot of time and money — and being integrated with Procore makes it even more useful.”
“As the industry’s first location-based virtual job site navigation tool, Cupix’s integration with Procore makes high-quality 3D site capture easy, affordable, and of value across the entire built-world lifecycle,” said Cupix CEO and founder Simon Bae. “Right now, most project managers are lucky to get a couple of 2D photos shot on a phone, which provide zero spatial intelligence. Our goal was to deliver full, 3D spatial intelligence of any element within a job site, making it easy and seamless — all without ever having to leave the Procore platform.”
“The embedded integration between Cupix and Procore allows the entire stakeholder team to easily leverage up-to-date, complete visual documentation of a job site found in Cupix. They can also connect critical tasks like RFI’s and observations by using powerful APIs in the Procore platform. This open platform approach allows users to build a single source of project data truth, helps reduce double entry, reduce risk and provide full project transparency,” said Brian K. Smith, owners business development manager at Procore.
Earlier this year, Cupix announced the availability of CupixWorks 2.0, a major update to its leading product, CupixWorks. Product enhancements integrated in the CupixWorks 2.0 platform include automated 3D spatial information extraction and editing tools that enable 3D spatial intelligence-based site management, comprehensive BIM data support, and secure collaboration and data access controls.
Available via a usage-based pricing model that is unique for the industry, the new CupixWorks platform features a completely redesigned digital-twin viewer for easier integration with third-party vendors, more streamlined LiDAR data support, and drone-mounted 360 image sequence capture and support.
