Infotech®, a leader in infrastructure construction software solutions, and EarthCam, a global leader in webcam technology and services, announced a new integration with Infotech’s Doc Express® service. Infotech and EarthCam together have nearly 70 years of experience serving state Departments of Transportation and the infrastructure engineering and construction community. This integration creates an essential visual timeline from the project site, inserting that data directly into daily workflow and enhancing the audit trail.
“As the leader in construction camera technology and services, we recognize that the infrastructure and heavy civil market will become one of the fastest growing sectors,” said Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam. “Partnering with Infotech, the dominant provider of field inspection and workflow services, will create a fantastic combination of expertise to develop valuable visual information solutions for our clients.”
Accurate construction documentation is essential for inspections and daily reporting. By using an EarthCam camera on a jobsite with Infotech’s services, Infotech users are now able to view digital jobsite activity remotely in real-time to make informed decisions and have a visual historic record of progress. Images can automatically be pushed to specific contracts in Doc Express such as compliance reports. The frequency of image uploads can be set according to jobsite activity levels and can include metadata such as weather, project title, and date/time stamp.
One state transportation agency is currently under pilot with the EarthCam and Infotech integration on a $24 million bridge replacement project. After setting up an EarthCam camera onsite, the agency was able to quickly capture images and instantly access visual information with Infotech’s Doc Express service.
“Visual data is the way of the future to increase productivity and efficiency for infrastructure construction projects,” Ron Perkins, Infotech Senior Manager of Strategic Partnerships said. “By integrating EarthCam cameras with our contract management solution, we are helping DOTs and engineering firms create a more informed jobsite with real-time visual assets that add key value for the overall success of the project.”
