AEC Magazine: Revizto 5.0 Preview

Greg Corke takes a sneak peek at the forthcoming release of the easy to use collaboration tool which now puts BIM object data at the heart of the issue tracking process In a crowd of AEC collaboration software, Revizto stands out for its sharp focus on issue tracking. The software combines 2D and 3D models for a ‘single source of truth’ presented through a simple user interface that can be accessed by anybody on the project team. With a cloud or local server-centric workflow, data is pushed out to a variety of devices, including desktop (Windows and MacOS) and tablet (iOS and Android) so issues can be resolved in the office and on site. When Revizto started out, most of its customers were on the design side, but in the last few years there’s been a big uptake in construction. Customers now include Atkins, AECOM, Arup, Balfour Beatty, Foster & Partners, Jacobs, Lendlease, Skanska, Vinci, Willmott Dixon and many more. This is reflected in how the product is marketed. It used to be ‘BIM collaboration’ or ‘BIM co-ordination’ but it’s now being pitched as an integrated collaboration platform. While the name might suggest a loose association with Revit, the software actually works with a huge range of CAD/ BIM tools, focused on buildings and infrastructure. There are plug-ins for Revit, ArchiCAD, Tekla Structures, Navisworks, SketchUp, AutoCAD Civil 3D, Vectorworks and MicroStation (including OpenRoads Designer and OpenBuilding Designer). The software can also read in IFC, OBJ, FBX, PDF, point cloud (RCP and RCS) and BCF files. With its ability to bring in data from a variety of sources, Revizto has become a bit of a hub for BIM model coordination. Teams identify issues on site, or within the context of the 3D model or 2D drawing, assign responsibility to individuals, add deadlines and priority, then track each issue until it’s been resolved, with full accountability. This process has worked well, not least because of its simplicity. However, the software has had its limitations because it has placed too much emphasis on the model itself, and not enough on the underlying BIM data. Object data has always been there, but you could only really look at it, and it was very hard to use it to your advantage. Now with Revizto 5.0, currently in beta and due to launch soon, this is set to change.
