Profox Navistools for Navisworks is our add-on solution for asset and plant lifecycle management, construction management and FM (facilities management). Navistools includes our Data Management and Reporter modules running a Navisworks-like graphical user interface built around an SQL database that can be easily integrated with other database applications.
Navistools provides the means to manage an entire project containing information and documentation into a single manageable resource that can be handed over or transferred between project stakeholders throughout the design, construction, management and lifecycle phases.
Running Navisworks with Navistools provides the functionality to search, link, tag and report on information stored in Navisworks models or BIMs, as well as the ability to add new construction and maintenance data captured on-site
Navisworks with Navistools can be used throughout the fit-out process for QA/QC, progress monitoring, commissioning, inspection and maintenance.
Navisworks with Navistools used as a Field BIM application using the above process facilitates continuation of the BIM process after the design phase for construction, fit-out and then FM. Building and associated information is added to the model during fit-out and subsequently handed over to the operations team.
Navistools is a tool for builders, planners & subcontractors. Information collected in Navistools Data Manager helps define a comprehensive digital model that can be handed over to the project’s owner/operators as a deliverable, thereby allowing our customers to offer extra value to their clients and help them win more business.
