Topcon Positioning Systems has unveiled Aptix, a new integration-platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) designed to optimize management of heavy civil construction projects.

The Aptix platform integrates Topcon solutions with multiple third-party applications to automate and coordinate data connections between the office and the job site.

“Aptix integrates Topcon’s heavy civil construction solutions with third-party solutions to share data, automate workflows, and facilitate built actuals reporting. Being open and ready to integrate with the rest of the world is what moving the construction industry forward is all about,” said Murray Lodge, Topcon’s Executive Vice President and General Manager.

Aptix can automate the distribution of machine control files, constructible models, project schedules and reports on actuals.

As well, it shows, in near real-time, the machine locations with the ability to aggregate as-built data from mixed fleet telematics. It provides real-time reports on people, materials, machines and carbon dioxide emissions, creating greater visibility for carbon footprint and sustainability initiatives.

“By automating previously manual processes, Aptix eliminates time-consuming and error-prone data entry, allowing construction professionals to focus on more strategic tasks,” said Jason Hallett, Vice President and General Manager of Topcon Integration Services.

“Project managers can make better, more informed decisions by having real-time visibility into project progress and potential roadblocks. We are confident that Aptix will optimize how construction projects are managed, providing a powerful new tool for construction professionals looking to improve their project management processes.”

A key feature of Aptix is the ability to automate the distribution of constructible models and scheduled task changes. Frequent changes make it difficult to keep management teams, operators and other stakeholders updated with current information. Aptix addresses this challenge by integrating with industry-standard applications, including Autodesk Construction Cloud and Microsoft OneDrive.

Through the integrations, Aptix actively monitors file updates within Autodesk Build, Autodesk Docs, BIM 360 and Microsoft OneDrive. When a constructible model or schedule change occurs, it automatically distributes these updates to all key stakeholders, ensuring operators have access to up-to-date models and scheduled tasks and that project managers have up-to-date reports.

“Without up-to-date, accessible and actionable information, construction teams will always struggle to communicate and collaborate,” said James Cook, Director of Partner Integrations at Autodesk Construction Solutions.

“With Aptix’s integration of Autodesk Construction Cloud, teams can ensure critical information is accessible to all the stakeholders that need it, helping companies more easily build and collaborate.”
