Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, announced a new software upgrade for Leica iCON field software as the first development under the collaboration with Procore, a provider of construction management software.  The software announcement closely followed finalization of a strategic relationship between the two companies to bring more efficiencies to the building construction industry.  The developing relationship focuses on linking Hexagon’s reality capture, measurement and digital construction positioning solutions and Procore’s suite of construction management solutions.  These integrations will result in increased efficiency and productivity across building construction projects, ultimately translating into its customers’ success.

The two companies have integrated their services for collaboration across Leica iCON field software and Procore’s suite of construction management solutions, delivering improved functionality and efficiency to customers.  Opening the way for new project management possibilities, the collaboration establishes cloud connection between iCON field software and Procore.  Users will be able to integrate and manage data, enhancing workflows between field and office.

By leveraging the data interoperability of iCON field software with various industry standard formats and the connectivity to Procore, field crews can now connect to cloud storage directly on-site, gaining access to previously inaccessible files.  This integration will enable project managers to access and communicate the most up-to-date information and make decisions based on true field data.
