FARO® partners with Siteco Informatica to launch a breakthrough in affordability and flexibility for mobile mapping applications in construction

LAKE MARY, Fla., Oct. 10, 2016 /CNW/ -- FARO® (NASDAQ: FARO), the world's most trusted source for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for factory metrology, product design, construction BIM/CIM, public safety forensics and 3D solutions and services applications, announces an extended partnership with Siteco Informatica to bring affordable mobile mapping, using FARO Focus3D Laser Scanners, to users worldwide.

This partnership pairs FARO's worldwide sales network with Siteco's technical expertise in mobile mapping systems to launch the new Road-Scanner C "Compact Edition". Under this partnership arrangement, FARO will provide a global sales network to market the Road-Scanner C and Siteco will sell, install and support the systems.

The Road-Scanner C is a state-of-the-art system that is more flexible than competitive systems and priced to appeal to a broad market of users who need to capture existing infrastructure for applications such as utility pole location, electric transmission and distribution lines, etc.

The system is equipped with two FARO Focus3D Laser Scanners, a 30 megapixel 360° spherical camera and Siteco software. The flexibility to detach the Focus3D Laser Scanners and use them independently as stand-alone laser scanners sets this solution apart from conventional mobile mapping systems and greatly improves the ROI for customers.

"We at Siteco are very excited about our new collaboration with FARO and its world-wide sales and marketing network. This network will help Siteco expand into geographical regions beyond our reach while championing the popular FARO brand into an exciting and growing mobile mapping market," stated Augusto Burchi, CEO of Siteco.

"At FARO, customers are the center of all our activities and we continuously strive to meet their needs," stated Dr. Simon Raab, President and CEO of FARO. "We have customers inquiring about mobile mapping solutions and, through our collaboration with Siteco, we can now help them solve more of their applications."
