Oscar R. Cantu, a product specialist and trainer for Topcon Positioning Systems, will conduct a workshop at World of Concrete 2013 on the concept of data management within the “cloud.” The title of his presentation is “Cloud Asset Management - It's Not as Intimidating as You Think.”
World of Concrete, one of the nation’s largest
construction trade shows, will be held in Las Vegas, Feb. 4-8 at the Las Vegas
Convention Center. Cantu’s presentation will be Monday, Feb. 4 at 10:30 a.m.
“The 90-minute course discusses the aspects of
improving a company’s communications and shared resources as a way to
positively affect productivity and bottom line,” Cantu said.
“Working ‘in the cloud’ is relatively new to
some industries and may be intimidating to those not familiar with
it. As a tool of the future, the cloud can be utilized today to
instantly empower companies of all shapes and sizes. From large
civil engineering firms to land surveying companies to individual contractors,
each can benefit by simply using the cloud in their normal project workflow.
“After staking out and checking field
measurements using technologically advanced systems and software, all data can
directly be sent from the project site to the cloud. Users can quickly
notify management and office staff that they have done so, and then download
what is needed for the next project site; all without ever needing to return to
“Using the correct software also provides the
ability for company users to connect to their own safe-and-secure cloud,” he
says. “The same files that were uploaded directly from the project site can be
visualized, edited and processed to generate custom reports.”
