The BuildIT Construction Software 2018.5 version provides new workflows and enhancements for continuous project evaluation for superior accountability in Traceable Construction™.

Lake Mary, September 2018 --( ASIA TODAY )-- FARO (NASDAQ: FARO), the world’s most trusted source for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for factory metrology and construction BIM/CIM applications, announces the latest version of BuildIT Construction (2018.5). BuildIT Construction Software is a comprehensive verification software solution that accelerates projects and minimizes waste by now giving construction professionals the power of a single software ecosystem configured with automated workflows and powerful established platforms.

Focus Laser Scanner Registration

Multiple import solutions are now available creating a more seamless experience in software integration. BuildIT 2018.5 now provides the ability to register Focus Laser Scanner data files directly during import. Removing the need of a registration software for various site workflows and enabling an on-site validation process within one software solution results in an efficient workflow. It is a key differentiator for BuildIT as it reduces the time from capturing reality to the validation report by half while also drastically reducing the steps.

Autodesk® Revit™ File Import

BuildIT Construction 2018.5 features the ability to AEC professionals are now able to import native Autodesk® Revit® files from version 2015 - 2018.5. This result in a faster process for model comparison due to native file import from one of the major BIM design tools. Another benefit of this Revit™ File Import includes the avoidance of lost information due to data conversion limitations and improving traceability using the object’s project ID within various software platforms as well as in validation reports.

Support of IFC File Import

In addition to the Revit File Importation feature, BuildIT 2018.5 also allows users to import IFC 2x3 and IFC 4.0 files. Since IFC files are a common standard in the construction industry, the practice of validation against design models is made more efficient and straight-forward.

Tolerance Evaluation

BuildIT Construction new tank volume analysis command gives construction professionals the ability to analyze various tank forms. By understanding the volume of tanks, users will now document correct volume in a trusted and traceable way. Facility managers can calculate and create tank volume charts for calibration based on specified height intervals. Customers will also be able to perform important inspections accurately and quickly that range from inspection of floor flatness and levelness, topographic curves to measuring the deformation of constructed object.

Customized Visual Representation

Exporting colorized models in standard E57 file format allows BuildIT Construction 2018.5 users to transfer analysis results as 3D model into project manager BIM model viewers like Autodesk® Navisworks® and others. This enables a complete new way of issuing visualization in common viewers, simplifying construction project management and uncovering issues quickly with traceability. In addition, the 2018.5 version of BuildIT Construction gives construction professionals the capability to customize the color scale in deviation heatmaps to local standards or project requirements. With this, areas out of tolerance can be detected even faster based on the assigned colors. Finally, this will lead to a seamless identification of project areas that require rework or fixes such as floor flatness, beam camber or deviations.

BuildIT Construction 2018.5 empowers project managers to compare construction site reality with design data and older status to uncover discrepancies and deviations in a traceable way to finally take proven decisions sooner. In the end, they can keep their construction project on time and in budget with less stress and wasted material. The new 2018.5 version with the new registration workflow during scan import and the ability to read IFC-files is streamlining user workflows even more and addresses now the entire construction BIM design software market.

Asia’s largest cybersecurity conference recognizes LABS/02 portfolio company ITsMine

BEIJING & JERUSALEM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ITsMine, a cybersecurity company focused on protecting organizational data has been named one of the top ten most innovative cybersecurity startups at China’s 2018 ISC Conference. ITsMine, the only company selected outside of Asia, was recognized for its new approach to data protection, and the first fully automated DLP solution.

TsMine CEO Kfir Kimhi said, "China's cybersecurity market is growing very fast – more than thirty-percent in 2017. This growth has led to an increase of investments in R&D by large companies, as well as increased investments in startups. It is a great honor to participate in the largest cyber event in Asia, and to be chosen for this prestigious award."

Kimhi who delivered the 2018 ISC keynote speech on “insider threats,” warned the audience that their networks are under attack from the inside and explained what red-flags companies should look out for to protect their data.

“Today, companies treat internal and external threats in the same manner, when in fact they are very different,” said ITsMine CEO Kfir Kimhi. “Insider threats cannot be prevented with a defensive approach, and organizations must move to an offensive approach in order to secure their data.”

Tan Xiaosheng, Executive Chairman of 2018 ISC said, “Data is the new currency. Today, the ten largest enterprises in the world produce nothing other than data, and yet all of this data remains vulnerable. In conjunction with the conference, we selected the top ten most innovative cybersecurity startups, one of which was ITsMine, an Israeli startup, which offers a cutting-edge solution to this major problem of data vulnerability. It’s important to note that ITsMine was the only company outside of Asia selected for this honor.”

Links with KHUR, Mongolia's state information exchange system

TOKYO - (ACN Newswire) - MobiCom Corporation, a subsidiary of KDDI CORPORATION, has recently introduced fingerprint authentication enabled by compatibility between the KHUR state information exchange system and MobiCom's sales management system.

MobiCom is the first telecommunications service provider to establish compatibility with the KHUR state information exchange system. It enables MobiCom to provide more than 100 service offerings to Mongolians, who are able to complete the personal ID authentication process using fingerprint verification only, without the need to present an ID card.

The KHUR state information exchange system also allows MobiCom to save the time and efforts expended in sales outlets and back-office operations managing customer ID card information, in favour of constructing the necessary data wharehousing facilities.

KHUR state information exchange system was developed as an integrated national population database managed by government authorities for registration, taxation, social insurance, and other services for improved utility and transparency. Use of an open-source platform ensures connectivity for private-sector firms that meet compliance standards.

Issued free of charge, the Mongolian national ID card is required for public procedures, such as voting. The cards include personal information such as digital photograph and fingerprints, which is securely stored to an embedded microprocessor. By linking its sales management system to KHUR, MobiCom can use information integrated with KHUR to enable personal ID authentication through fingerprint verification alone.

By establishing links with KHUR, MobiCom will be able not only to improve its service quality, but also to aspire to provide new telecommunications and finance services, thus contributing to the development of Mongolia.

- Further reveals world's first Modular Mobile Parcel Locker

NEXT Future Transportation Inc. ('NEXT'), the world's only modular electric vehicle solutions provider, today announced a groundbreaking automated logistics solution for Smart and Connected Cities : https://youtu.be/DZ7QeZAIoOM

NEXT is proud to announce the introduction of its fully automated multiservice 'online-to-offline' (O2O) platform, including a modular vehicle solution and the supporting operating system required to bring an ecosystem of logistics services to market at scale.

"To date NEXT has entirely focused on creating innovative solutions for the municipal mass transportation market. Today NEXT enters the global USD $2.3 trillion e-commerce market, which is driving a rapid transformation of the traditional retail supply chain," said Emmanuele Spera, CEO of NEXT.

Built on NEXT's patented modular transportation platform, the logistics solution is an automated electric vehicle system that is designed to be customizable and scalable for a wide range of Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) applications. A fully integrated logistics solution, NEXT compliments warehouse optimization strategies, and workflow environments of Third Party Logistics (3PL), Retailers and Manufacturers. The unique modular platform seamlessly integrates with mixed fleets of autonomous mobile robots existing operating systems.

Upon completion of the automated warehouse loading process, individual vehicles autonomously connect to form a fleet, thus allowing the joint internal space to be utilized. While in route, parcels may autonomously shift amongst vehicles to ensure optimal final delivery.

"NEXT's approach fundamentally differs from all current Autonomous Ground Vehicles or e-Shuttles in that our vehicle's open interior design layout can flexibly adapt to accommodate specific needs. Furthermore, NEXT's fleets may be operated by a human driver, a remote human operator, or autonomously. Therefore we plan to operate on public roadways in the near term," said Tommaso Gecchelin, CTO of NEXT.

To meet the growing global market demands of future multi-mode transportation and business applications, NEXT is introducing the world's first Modular Mobile Parcel Locker.

"Our unique locker solution will provide retailers with more control, while reducing the overall costs of delivery. The public will benefit from superior flexibility and ease of use as delivery locations are determined by customer proximity," said Sven Hackmann, EVP of NEXT.

NEXT believes that the future of innovation is defined by co-innovation and co-ownership. Consequently, it is collaborating with several partners on various developments on a wide range of applications. With offices in Europe and the United States, NEXT has identified China and the Gulf region as its primary growth markets.

"We are encouraged by the lifting of restrictions on the business scope of foreign startups, which is a path to ensure fair competition in China. From 2008 to 2015, China's same-city delivery was the fastest growing sector among various logistics businesses, with a 44% annual growth rate, according to China's State Post Bureau. It is expected the market will reach over RMB200 billion (USD$29 billion) in 2020, and we are excited to participate," said Spera.

NEXT is preparing to announce its formal China market entry.

A statement from a coalition of local and international bodies across agriculture, commerce and trade September 11, 2018

HANOI, VIETNAM - (ACN Newswire) - Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc recently called for Vietnam's agriculture sector to become one of the top 15 most developed in the world in just ten years and utilise scientific and technological advances. His Excellency further emphasized that more innovation is needed to generate new drivers for growth to ensure macroeconomic stability. Such an ambitious agenda can be achieved only if the government embraces agricultural innovation.

Unleashing the possibilities of modern agriculture to support sustainable, inclusive development requires enormous investment, collaboration and a stable policy and regulatory environment. All three factors are critical in the context when Vietnam harnesses cutting-edge technology to accelerate its development.

Putting exciting new technology such as data science in the hands of farmers also relies on allowing them to continue using the tools that have helped to feed billions over recent decades. More people have access to safe, quality food than ever before in Vietnam and worldwide because farmers continue to have access to technology developed over the years.

To this day, crop protection tools such as pesticides play a critical role in producing more food using fewer resources. Without these tools, more than half of the world's crops would be lost to insects, diseases and weeds, leading to enormous economic and environmental damage. To increase the competitiveness of Vietnamese farmers as well as to ensure the future investment in innovation, Vietnamese farmers should be encouraged to have access to safe crop protection products supported by high quality training and education. This will ensure that farmers continue to produce safe, affordable and nutritious food for the community and export.

Against this backdrop, we call on the government to ensure that crop protection tools are properly assessed through a consistent, scientifically rigorous process in line with internationally accepted methods and standards. Such assessments need to be conducted by scientific experts and a suitable timeline should apply to allow for a thorough review. This is consistent with the direction recently set by the Prime Minister when His Excellency called for the removal of unnecessary government procedures that can stifle production and trade while reinforcing the need for transparency.

The industry takes its responsibility seriously and offers its commitment and support to help the Government achieve its food safety objectives. This includes continuing to research the development of alternative natural products, to promote the importance of the responsible use of crop protection products in Vietnam's agricultural sector, as well as providing a scientific and international standards-based approach towards achieving the government's objective of 30% reduction of product registrations by 2021 without sacrificing the sustainability and competitiveness of Vietnam agriculture. Also, it is important that proper police controls are reinforced to prevent illegal imports to Vietnam.
