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.

Everyone talks about continuous integration and continuous delivery but those are just two ends of the pipeline. In the middle of DevOps is continuous testing (CT), and many organizations are struggling to implement continuous testing effectively. After all, without continuous testing there is no delivery. And Lab-As-A-Service (LaaS) enhances the CT with dynamic on-demand self-serve test topologies. CT together with LAAS make a powerful combination that perfectly serves complex software developm...

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Because the attack surface for cloud applications is dramatically different than for highly controlled data centers, a disciplined and multi-layered approach that spans all of your processes, staff, vendors and technologies is required. This may sound expensive and time consuming to achieve as you plan how to move selected applicati...
