July 17, 2023: Topcon Positioning Systems, a leading provider of precision positioning technology, has unveiled Aptix, an innovative integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) aimed at revolutionising the management of heavy civil construction projects. With Aptix, Topcon aims to streamline data connections between the office and job sites while significantly enhancing project efficiency.

Aptix serves as a centralised hub, integrating Topcon's cutting-edge solutions with various third-party applications. By consolidating data from multiple sources into a single platform, construction teams gain valuable insights and ensure projects stay on track with profitability goals, while also aligning the as-built outcome with the original plan.

One of Aptix's standout features is its automation and orchestration capabilities, enabling the seamless distribution of crucial data, including machine control files, constructible models, project schedules, and actual reports. The platform's near real-time tracking feature allows for location monitoring of machines, along with aggregating as-built data from diverse telematics sources.

Notably, Aptix provides real-time reports on critical aspects such as people, materials, machines, and carbon dioxide emissions. This functionality fosters greater visibility for carbon footprint analysis and supports sustainability initiatives within the construction industry.

Whenever changes occur in constructible models or schedules, Aptix automatically disseminates these updates to all relevant key stakeholders. This feature guarantees that operators have access to the most up-to-date models and scheduled tasks, while project managers can access the latest reports.

In an official press release published on Topcon’s website, James Cook, Director of Partner Integrations at Autodesk Construction Solutions, emphasised the significance of Aptix's integration with Autodesk Construction Cloud. He stated, "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."

Topcon's Aptix promises to be a game-changer for the heavy civil construction industry, empowering construction teams with advanced tools for efficient project management, data analysis, and collaboration. By leveraging the power of iPaaS technology, Aptix is set to transform the way construction projects are executed, fostering productivity, cost-effectiveness, and sustainable practices in the sector.
