Rand Worldwide (OTCBB: RWWI), a global leader in providing technology solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology requirements, today announced that its IMAGINiT Technologies division has released key new features for IMAGINiT Clarity, IMAGINiT Clarity LT, and IMAGINiT Clarity Workshare.
IMAGINiT Clarity and Clarity LT extend the Autodesk Revit Server platform by improving team collaboration and time savings through security, management and monitoring tools, task automation and project dashboard reporting. Firms not using Autodesk Revit Server can improve their traditional file based work sharing approach, automate time consuming Revit software related tasks, build reports and more with IMAGINiT Clarity Workshare.
“The IMAGINiT Clarity product line is specifically designed to address key challenges BIM teams face and this latest release further extends the functionality in an intuitive user experience,” says Tim Johnson, senior vice president, IMAGINiT Technologies. “Our development team has not only improved enhancements for saving time by automating manual tasks and collaborating more securely with everyone on the BIM team, but we’re also giving more business friendly purchase options by offering a perpetual license model as well as an annual rental option.”
“While we chose to utilize IMAGINiT Clarity Workshare for a specific project, we have found that every project has the potential to benefit from the functions IMAGINiT Clarity offers specifically, the new Web Editing feature that allows our clients to provide comments and feedback that ties directly to Revit,” says Jason Gardner, BIM Manager of Hoefer Wysocki Architects. “IMAGINiT Clarity has been instrumental in not only saving us time and offering our clients more insight into their projects earlier, but it has also enabled me to automate many manual, project-based tasks, allowing me to focus my efforts towards critical company-based initiatives that would otherwise be postponed.”
The latest enhancements to the IMAGINiT Clarity product line continue to help solve the toughest challenges facing BIM teams today. IMAGINiT Clarity products:
- Increase collaboration between all members of the BIM team regardless of their location or if they are a Revit user. For example, any BIM team member with permissions such as an interior architect, a facilities manager or marketing staff can review data and submit change requests back to the model via an intuitive web interface.
- Offer greater task automation to ensure both people and technology resources are used most efficiently. Intuitive daily graphical views and weekly scheduling options show what resources are used to generate PDFs, DWG’s, reports and more.
- Improve master planning by querying room data and datasheets across selected previous projects.
Whether it’s liberating valuable information from the Revit model and allowing it to be shared with the expanded team or finding and solving a model block with a host server remotely using a tablet, the IMAGINiT Clarity family of products saves BIM teams time while making project management easier and more secure.
To highlight the business benefits of the IMAGINiT Clarity product line, IMAGINiT will be hosting an exclusive presentation at Autodesk University 2013 on Wednesday, December 4 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Hoefer Wysocki Architects will co-present, along with IMAGINiT experts, offering attendees feedback to their toughest questions from both developers and users. Attendance is free, but advanced registration is required.
On Thursday, December 12, IMAGINiT will also be hosting a free 60 minute webcast to highlight the latest features in the IMAGINiT Clarity products. Led by a member of the team who developed the software suite, the webcast will take place at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Eastern. Attendance is free, but advanced registration is required.
IMAGINiT Technologies has a long history of creating productivity enhancing software products that extend the value of Autodesk products, such as IMAGINiT Utilities for Revit, IMAGINiT Utilities for Civil 3D and IMAGINiT Utilities for Vault Server, Scan to BIM, and IMAGINiT Clarity and Clarity Workshare. With experts who are focused on design technology automation and customization, IMAGINiT is both an Autodesk Authorized Developer and a member of the Autodesk Developer Network.
Availability and Pricing
All three IMAGINiT Clarity products are available through a perpetual license, but now a new annual rental plan is also available to meet the needs of those working on a project by project basis. IMAGINiT Clarity Workshare offers an unlimited number of users and projects and also includes basic installation and training. Maintenance and subscription fees apply.
For organizations interested in a solution specifically for Revit Server, IMAGINiT Clarity and IMAGINiT Clarity LT can be packaged with Autodesk Revit Server or can be integrated into an existing installation. Setup and training is included and managed by IMAGINiT’s trusted team of implementation and training experts. Pricing is dependent on number of locations, hosts, accelerators and task servers. Maintenance and subscription fees apply. For more information, visit: imaginit.com/clarity.

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
