Quantapoint Announces Latest Integration of Laser Models and Laser Images Into AVEVA NET

Faster and More Intuitive Access to Critical Facility and Operations Information to Reduce Break-Even Time, Improve Productivity and Manage Risk

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - February 8, 2010) - Quantapoint (http://www.quantapoint.com) -- provider of Digital Facilities™ that improve safety and decision-making for building, managing and upgrading facility assets -- today announced the latest integration of Quantapoint 3D laser scan data into AVEVA NET using AccessPoint™. Quantapoint is the world's most experienced 3D laser scanning company, having completed nearly 1,400 projects / 200,000 man-hours of incident-free laser scanning worldwide for the architectural, process, power and offshore industries.

AccessPoint enables Quantapoint Digital Facilities™, composed of photo-realistic Laser Images™ and high-definition Laser Models™, to be accessed via the web using AVEVA NET and directly linked with facility and asset information without requiring CAD remodeling. AVEVA NET is a powerful, information management hub to control, link, evaluate and deliver all types of data and documents in a secure environment, regardless of application and format. AccessPoint and AVEVA NET provide a number of capabilities to access critical facility knowledge, including:

    -- QuantaCAD for the Web:  AccessPoint is a "web-enabled" version of
       QuantaCAD, Quantapoint's software for accessing 3D laser data in
       AVEVA PDMS and other CAD packages, so it will automatically include
       new functionality.
    -- Link Directly from 3D Laser Data:  Link to relevant facility and
       asset information from the 3D Laser Data itself without requiring
       CAD remodeling, for faster and more intuitive access to critical
       knowledge.
    -- Automatic Linking:  Automatically crawl and integrate relevant
       facility and asset information from your network, intranet,
       databases and other data sources.  It is like having a search
       engine for your facility.
    -- Virtual Site Visits:  Measure points, distances and pipes in both
       Laser Images and Laser Models during virtual site visits.
    -- Built-in Viewers:  Built-in viewers for 2D drawings, 3D CAD models,
       Word and Excel, so users can view information without having the
       programs installed.

By using AccessPoint to put reality into AVEVA NET, companies can minimize downtime by providing intuitive and rapid access to facility and operations information, improve safety by accessing the most current information and increase productivity by improving collaboration and accessing 3D laser data directly.
