Topcon and DynaRoad Announce Release of Planning Software Print E-mail
Written by Topcon Positioning Systems and DynaRoad Oy   
Tuesday, 15 November 2011

Livermore, Calif. – November 15, 2011 – Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) and DynaRoad Oy, a software company in Helsinki, Finland, announce the release of DynaRoad v5.2 construction scheduling and planning software.

Earlier this year, TPS purchased a significant share in DynaRoad Oy, which develops project management software specially designed for large-scale construction such as highway, tunnel, railway, area development and harbor projects.

Juuso Makinen, CEO of DynaRoad Oy, said, “Version 5.2 has improved planning tools with a map view for visualizing project progress week by week. The software also has industry specific tools. For example, for earthmoving, the new version allows the importing of quantity data directly from a Microsoft® Excel spreadsheet so within minutes, the user has developed a mass haul plan.”

He said that the new version also provides a “new look and feel in graphical views and has added interactive planning tutorials and sample projects.”

At the time of the purchase, Ivan Di Federico, TPS chief strategy officer, said, “Contractors and designers use DynaRoad products and services to save time and money by optimizing and controlling the production of large and complicated earthworks projects.

“The DynaRoad solution combines mass haul optimization, location based scheduling and production control.”

Prior to the purchase agreement, DynaRoad and TPS worked together developing products for asset management, planning and scheduling.

More information on the release and free trial is available at www.dynaroad.com/5.2.
