FARO Technologies, Inc., a company offering 4D digital reality solutions, is launching a data capture and collaboration platform, the company says. The platform provides a cloud-based workflow combining three solutions: the FARO Sphere digital ecosystem for an exchange of data; the FARO Focus Premium Laser Scanner for fast field capture; and the FARO Stream mobile app for real-time data verification. 

“With FARO Sphere as its backbone, our new end-to-end 3D capture platform provides customers with industry-leading ease-of-use, accuracy and speed,” says Michael Burger, FARO president and CEO. “Real-time data capture validation and remote collaboration will transform how customers generate, access and utilize 3D data models. For our shareholders, Sphere is expected to generate meaningful high-margin software as a service (SaaS) recurring revenue over time as customers increasingly realize the benefits of our cloud-based solution.”

The next-generation Focus Premium data-sharing-enabled scanner features new components. The new Stream app, available for Android and iOS devices, used with the Focus Premium, enables on-site scan data validation (preregistration) and can be immediately synced to Sphere for registration and collaboration. 

Sphere centralizes the collection and management of all 3D data projects and can be accessed by global stakeholders through the secure, single point sign-on. Sphere also provides a one-stop user experience across FARO's software applications and customer support tools, including HoloBuilder, a global construction progress management solution that delivers hardware agnostic image capture, registration and viewing targeted to the digital twin space.

“Beta customers have found the complete platform solution to dramatically enhance data delivery and analysis, improving their time to decision by up to 50%,” continues Burger.
