Smart Measure

With the Orgadata app „Smart Measure“ having bits of paper everywhere at the construction site is a thing of the past. As a Logikal user you can transfer the element positions to an iPad/iPhone and digitise them directly. You can enter the site dimension data for single positions and revise it directly in the app. Since the app also handles site dimension pictures the user is kept informed about the allocation of dimensions. Via Internet all data can be transferred to the computer in the office. In case of a subsequent site meeting the determined data will be in the office sooner than the person who measured them.
