Touchplan & Oculo form Technology/Marketing Partnership
New alliance to assess workflow and reality capture
LONDON, ENGLAND, and BOSTON, MA, (November 15, 2021) – Oculo, a leading AI and deep-tech company, and Touchplan, an award-winning collaborative construction planning software, today announced a partnership to work together to assess a workflow that combines look-ahead planning with reality capture.
Communication, especially from those who make plans to the field, is frequently a pain point. Touchplan and Oculo feel that this can largely be resolved by using comprehensive, shared, and up-to-date visual documentation of the jobsite, allowing construction teams to be concise, precise, and get the weekly plan to the lowest level.
“Our goal is to take the 20,000 foot-view from which most project managers see the jobsite and get it down to the lowest level,” said Jason Barrington-Hines, Operations & Growth Manager at Oculo. “All parties should be able to have the same information available to them to understand the macro workings of the job from any location, and our tech combined with Touchplan can help achieve that.”
The partnership between Touchplan and Oculo will allow visual documentation to be used proactively; to feed into dynamic scheduling, and to align all members of the project team. Planning sessions can become virtual rehearsals, where all members of the team can visualize what needs to be done next, and remote team members can also contribute. This creates a jobsite where obstacles are avoided, responsibilities are clear, and constraints are less of an issue. Owners and architects can have data-driven conversations with contractors and collaborate openly.
Touchplan Technology Partnership Manager Andrew Piland added, “Touchplan prides itself on being an innovative partner for our customers. We adapt the technology to their processes and are truly a customer-driven solution. Partnering with Oculo makes Touchplan better because it gives us an edge over simply being a stand-alone solution.”
Oculo leverages the power of advanced computer vision and machine learning to create a virtual copy of any construction site that is regularly updated and can be accessed online from anywhere in the world. This removes the need for teams and stakeholders to be onsite to make a decision or get things done, transforms workflows, and effortlessly creates comprehensive visual as-built documentation. The outcome of which is increased productivity at the site level, a powerful weapon to defend against claims, and visual history of the project, which will pay dividends throughout the lifetime of the asset.
