SEOUL, South Korea and SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — 3i, Inc. and its flagship product, Beamo™, an enterprise-grade Digital Twin solution for mission-critical facilities and remote sites, announced a new distribution agreement with the Japanese Visual Communication solution company, NTT BizLink, Inc. 3i is a member of Born2Global Centre.
Under the terms of the agreement, 3i will provide NTT BizLink license to promote Beamo 3D Digital Twin solution to enable and accelerate the digital transformation of the construction, manufacturing, and facility management industries in Japan.
NTT BizLink will distribute Beamo, a service that allows engineering and construction managers to easily and instantly create, manage, and navigate digital twins or immersive “3D views” of buildings (commercial facilities, production facilities, etc.) using off-the-shelf 360° cameras and smartphones. NTT BizLink is set to carry Beamo in its portfolio beginning August 10, 2021.
This service was developed in collaboration with 3i during the 2019 NTT Communications open innovation program, also called “ExTorch Open Innovation Program”. Beamo is the first service to be commercialized as a result of this program by NTT BizLink, a subsidiary of the NTT Com Group which has gathered a strong offering in Visual Communication solutions.
With Beamo, NTT BizLink will promote the digitization of manual workflows in facility management by modernizing the way field surveys and inspections are conducted. Indeed, conducting a remote site survey is considered to be near impossible, especially for the purposes of construction and maintenance of buildings and critical facilities.
Beamo can be used for
- Equipment management & Field Survey: More efficient site surveys, planning, post-reports, central repository of information regarding sites and equipment
- Education & Training: Creation of training materials using the Tag function in the 3D Workspace
- Safety management: Highlighting of hazardous areas before visiting the site
- Visit & Audit: Guided tours of buildings and audit support
With the expansion of this service, Beamo and NTT Com aim to create a world where all workers can choose the optimal workstyle and play an active role in the digital transformation of their company.
