The Client

An industry leader in measurement and survey information technologies worldwide. The company is part of an outstanding global provider of information technology solutions that drive productivity and quality across geospatial and industrial landscapes. Our client operates in an industry where exceptional attention to detail and diligence in execution are essential. It is also is a firm believer that technological advances strongly enrich its capacity and potential for delivery.

The Solution

Our client’s team has always believed in the importance of innovation and continuous development. Occupying a leading spot in a challenging industry, they are strongly focused on delivering continuous quality improvements. This was of primary importance for the project in which they chose Scalefocus as a trusted partner for the development of a user-friendly mobile solution to manage portable industrial geodetic devices using Android or iOS gadgets. The new platform would allow users to create virtual professional rooms, i.e. to visually depict how a room would look like. It would do so via enabling the creation of building plans by sketching, recording, capturing and measuring a photo of an actual room. The customer also required that the app should allow the creation of a heatmap of the venue. The specificity of the company’s expertise demanded remarkable meticulousness.

After the successful collaboration, a variety of useful features were implemented on both versions of the platform: for iOS and for Android. It supports the capture of images and the addition of measurements to them via the Disto Devices (easy-to-use laser measurement tools). Precise sketches with real estimation as well as an intuitive sketch workflow have been created. Apart from the subscription-based in-app purchases, data could be shared with others via email or cloud. The platform also:

  • Stores and manages work data;

  • Manages Disto devices and their updates;

  • Connects Disto devices to mobile via Bluetooth or WiFi.

Results

An easy-to-use platform has been created for managing Disto devices using an Android or iOS mobile phone. Users have been given the ability to further extend their knowledge about the device’s specification and manual, supported by a help video, current Bluetooth connection, etc. There is a simple way to connect the Disto device to a mobile phone via Bluetooth or WiFi and update the firmware of the Disto X3, X4, and Disto Transit.

Additionally, there are:

  • More than 5 different ways to take highly precise measurements;

  • User-friendly interface to create complex geodetic diagrams;

  • Exports to various formats: JPG, PDF, DXF, etc. for an even easier workflow management.
