AVEVA E3D Insight enables project decision makers in the power, process plant and mining industries to view and approve AVEVA Everything3D™ (AVEVA E3D™) designs from a mobile tablet device. For the first time ever it is possible for a worker on a construction site to contribute directly to an evolving 3D plant design. AVEVA E3D Insight demonstrates AVEVA’s commitment to anticipating and meeting changing customer requirements by offering the ability to inspect, comment upon, and approve designs at any time, from anywhere around the world.
The UK tech awards celebrate the success, reward the achievement and raise the profile of the UK tech community. The event has evolved from the very successful techMARK Awards, sponsored by PwC, which concerned only quoted tech companies and which had been held for 13 consecutive years since the launch in 2000. The UK tech awards are positioned to broaden the tech universe and includes not only publicly quoted “techMARK” companies but also AIM tech companies and fast growing and innovative private tech companies.
