EarthCam partners with WakeCap to harness IoT tech for construction

EarthCam, a leading provider of construction camera solutions, has collaborated with WakeCap, a leader in smart solutions for construction site management, in a move aimed at integrating its visual data and WakeCap’s connected worker solutions in building sites across Saudi Arabia.
This initiative is part of EarthCam’s expanding presence in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, leading the industry with fast-to-deploy solutions for project monitoring and time-lapse documentation. 
EarthCam’s visual data from job sites has helped keep generations of construction workers safe while providing the most highly regarded construction time-lapse videos worldwide. 
Its new edge computer vision and AI object-detection software continue to improve worker efficiency and risk mitigation for stakeholders.
Both companies, each technology leader in their respective fields, are excited to join forces to enhance their offering for the construction industry in the kingdom, said a top company official.
"Our visual data combined with WakeCap’s telematics solutions will deliver powerful new insights for construction project management teams," remarked Brian Cury, the CEO and founder of EarthCam. 
"EarthCam continues to innovate to improve safety and efficiency on job sites. This alignment with WakeCap will provide new capabilities for our shared clients in the KSA and beyond," he added.
The collaboration between WakeCap and EarthCam, Inc. was facilitated by Monsha'at, the Small and Medium Enterprises General Authority established in Saudi Arabia in 2016 to regulate, support, and develop the SME sector in the Kingdom. 
It operates independently under the Ministry of Commerce and aims to increase the productivity of SMEs and raise their contribution to the GDP from 20% to 35% by 2030.
"WakeCap’s technology solution, with its easy-to-implement software and hardware, has demonstrated significant improvements for our construction clients," remarked its CEO and Co-founder Dr Hassan Albalawi.
"WakeCap digitizes data collection, allowing site owners to understand exactly what’s happening on complex, large-scale projects, harnessing real-time insights to streamline operations," noted Albalawi. 
"Uniting with EarthCam, a world leader in live streaming video, timelapse cameras and AI analytics, will allow both companies to further enhance their ‘contech’ offering," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
