CADMATIC’s recently launched FollowApp mobile application resulted from the development drive to maximize the utilization of mobile and cloud applications with CADMATIC solutions.
The application, which is currently available free of charge, allows users to monitor key CADMATIC design project metrics conveniently from their mobile devices. It reduces the uncertainty around project schedule and cost estimations in new projects. The data can be compared to other similar data from previous projects, which provides the user with a good understanding of the status of the project.
The app is available from both Google Play and Apple Store.
The project metrics that can be monitored with FollowApp include, for example, project 3D model progress by the total length, mass and number of pipes and pipe fittings, pipelines, pieces of equipment, cables, cable trays and ducts. The progress of P&ID can also be monitored during process design as well as document production. The metrics are automatically uploaded to the app at scheduled times from CADMATIC design applications.
Storage in cloud service
The metrics are stored in a cloud service provided by CADMATIC. Actual design data is not published and access to the service is restricted to only authenticated users controlled by system administrators.
The app enables users to monitor project progress with the flexibility to adjust the periods and metrics covered. The app is available from both Google Play and Apple Store.
“We are very excited about what FollowApp offers our clients. Project Managers are becoming increasingly mobile and they need information at their fingertips regardless of their location. The FollowApp provides our software users with this kind of information wherever they are and allows them to react quickly, if necessary,” says Sami Koponen, Vice President - Plant segment at CADMATIC.
