Verity, owned by Topcon, is one of the best point cloud software solutions on the market. Verity allows GCs to automate construction verification using scan to BIM to check installation status and accuracy against the design / fab models.

GCs and other managers can highlight, annotate, and share out-of-tolerance work with the subcontractors and other stakeholders using Verity. However, this is where it’s easy for issue resolution to fall off the rails. Information gets stuck in silos and inboxes, and there is no one place to see if these issues are being resolved. This is where BIM Track comes in.
What BIM Track brings to the table
BIM Track creates accountability and a central, digitized “paper” trail for all information relating to an issue. Issues can be assigned to individuals, with due dates for resolution.
Figure 2.0 What’s in a BIM Track issue
Comments back and forth between team members are associated to that issue, as shown in Figure 3.0, with the ability to attach documents and images in the comments feed. External stakeholders can be notified and can view all issue data including in-model context using BIM Track’s web viewer or Navisworks add-in. Metrics on issue resolution progress are easy to read. GCs and PMs can drill down to problem areas and get their teams moving again.
Issues can be published to BIM Track directly from Verity in Navisworks. Think of BIM Track as the communications icing on your coordination cake. What’s also really cool, from a kind of nerdy point of view, is that we have connected two 3rd party Navisworks apps.
