These days, construction professionals face a number of challenges, but the majority of them affect two things: schedule and budget. In addition, Project Managers must work through the manual process of recording project progress and schedule updates which, especially on larger projects, leads to the information being outdated before the ink is dry. To fix this, industry leaders have begun looking at integrating a single source of truth—accurate, timely and efficient—into the management of their construction projects.

To help with this, Multivista is tapping into Hexagon’s latest autonomous solution, Progress Reporting.  This comprehensive AI analysis tool creates accurate and reliable construction progress reports in a fraction of the time of traditional methods.
