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 released the 2015 versions of the IMAGINiT Clarity suite of products. The intuitive user interface, new task automation options, and integration with Autodesk products such as Autodesk BIM 360 Glue make the latest release of IMAGINiT Clarity a must for firms with project collaboration needs.
“We’re committed to ensuring that the IMAGINiT Clarity product line meets the evolving design needs of architects, engineers and designers, whether they’re using Revit Server or just Revit,” says Tim Johnson, senior vice president at IMAGINiT Technologies. “The new productivity and time saving enhancements in our 2015 releases allow BIM teams to reduce the amount of time spent on manual tasks, such as model exchange and clean-up, and focus on higher level tasks that add tangible value to projects. As the new IMAGINiT Clarity line-up supports Autodesk Revit and Revit Server 2015, 2014 and 2013 versions, many firms can now reap significant benefits.”
Designed to leverage the information contained in Revit models, IMAGINiT Clarity for Revit provides collaborative project management tools and automation of manual tasks. Firms that require collaboration with external team members have the option to use IMAGINiT Clarity Connect or Clarity Connect LT for Revit Server, which add secure project sharing features on top of IMAGINiT Clarity functionality. The 2015 product line includes a redesigned user interface and new and enhanced features improve efficiency and increase productivity, ultimately advancing design quality.
Occasional Model Exchanges
IMAGINiT Clarity for Revit helps BIM Coordinators save precious time throughout the life of a project. Instead of constantly manually publishing models via FTP, email or other sharing mechanisms, a variety of new tools help to automatically publish models to a designated FTP site or network location and retrieve them. Automating this process allows team members to focus on higher value tasks and without fundamentally changing the way teams exchange model information.
Intuitive User Interface
Customer feedback has also been the impetus for a new intuitive user interface that shows more data at a glance and provides quick access to the tools required to perform complex functions. Designed with the mobile user in mind, Clarity is available for desktop use as well as off-site with a laptop or tablet. With new remote functionality and increased ability for users to access information in fewer clicks, Clarity’s new user interface increases efficiency both on-site and in the office.
Integration with Autodesk BIM 360 Glue
To enhance the value of Autodesk BIM 360’s Glue data, IMAGINiT Clarity now offers the ability to automate the publishing of Revit data to Glue and for users to view Glue data inside the Clarity environment. By linking Clarity to Glue, a BIM coordinator transforms a manual process that takes multiple steps into a task that will publish Revit models to Glue when needed. The ability to use both Clarity and Glue helps provide firms a more integrated project collaboration system, reducing errors and increasing profitability.
Availability & Pricing
All three IMAGINiT Clarity products are available with perpetual licensing. Each product is also available on a subscription basis for those who want to use the tools for a specific project.
IMAGINiT Clarity offers an unlimited number of users and projects and also includes basic installation and training. Maintenance fees apply. For organizations that need to collaborate with internal and external teams, IMAGINiT Clarity Connect and IMAGINiT Clarity Connect 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.
See the latest Clarity release in action during webcasts being held on June 4, 2014 at 10:00 AM or 2:00 PM (US/CAN Eastern Time). During these one-hour live presentations, Beau Turner will be on hand to demonstrate and answer questions about IMAGINiT Clarity and IMAGINiT Clarity Connect.
