Online job site tool saves construction, engineering firms money, time


Topcon launches real-time web portal for end-users to manage job site assets

Topcon Positioning Systems, Inc. (TPS) announced Monday a new online portal – – designed for general construction and engineering companies to allow users to access job site status and create new or updated job site parameters, view movement of machines on the job, and manage and control every aspect of Topcon’s 3D machine control systems anywhere in the world.

The Livermore, Calif.-based firm is a subsidiary of Japan-based, $1 billion Topcon Corporation and the world’s largest manufacturer of precision GPS and GNSS systems, commercial lasers, and optical instruments for the global surveying, civil engineering, asset management, mapping, construction and agriculture industries.

The subscription-based, on-demand software can be accessed via computer, tablet or smartphone. The ability to send and receive job data and make instantaneous decisions or corrections regarding onsite progress saves companies time, fuel and money, TPS said.

Primary features and benefits of Sitelink3D include file transfers, messaging, machine tracking, remote support and training, real-time cut/fill mapping and acquiring and storing real-time survey data.

“While Sitelink3D is a complete site communications systems providing data control, machine tracking and a reporting system in one solution, gives complete site management power in real time and provides remote information access to and from any piece of enabled equipment regardless of location,” said Richard Jackson, vice president of machine control applications.

Most machines currently equipped with a Topcon 3D-MC system can be included in the Sitelink3D network by adding the SL-100 radio modem. New Topcon 3D-MC systems can be ordered with the modem pre-installed. Users of Topcon Pocket3D and 3D Office software can also be included in the Sitelink3D network.
