President’s Message

In our business, we talk a lot about connecting. Field work is connected back to the office through sophisticated software. Machines on a construction site are connected to each other through integrated platforms. People are connected to one another through technology. This connection is what distinguishes modest ecosystems from smart ecosystems, the basis for smart digital realities. In this edition of Reporter, we define what it takes to make smart ecosystems leading to smart digital realities for a true digital transformation.  

The construction industry is rapidly digitalising and connecting more and more the field to the office. When Clark Builders discovered the efficiency and simplicity of Geosystems latest generation of robotic total stations, GNSS and software for construction, this top-ranking general contractor in Canada streamlined its layout time by 25 to 30 per cent, lowering its survey costs and increasing its profits.   

When technology is used to share information and connect cities, the global community benefits. The Unreality Journeys Team and G2 Foundation, a collective of technology visionaries, use Geosystems laser scanning technology to capture antiquities throughout Guatemala. The organisation is on a mission to decentralise and enable communities to share the captured data through virtual, augmented and mixed reality environments so everyone can experience these UNESCO World Heritage Sites.      

At Hexagon, we don’t just talk about smart ecosystems and digital realities – we create them. In our latest innovation, Xalt, we are fast-tracking our customers digital transformations by harnessing the power of the Internet of Things (IoT). The goal of Xalt is to create Autonomous Connected Ecosystems (ACE), a state where data is connected seamlessly through the convergence of the physical world with the digital, and intelligence is built in to all processes, from the core to the edge of a customer’s network. Learn how Xalt will ultimately underpin all our forthcoming technology and solutions.

When businesses work in smart ecosystems, they create smart digital realities for more efficiency, productivity and sustainability. To address this generation’s most critical challenges, digital transformations must take place. We are proud at Geosystems to support our customers in taking the leap and discovering the potential of connections.
