The Stockpile Reports Lite iPhone app has been rolled out in the UK, Ireland, South Africa and New Zealand, according to a statement from Stockpile Reports. The app allows site engineers to measure stockpiled materials using an iPhone at a fraction of the costs of traditional methods.
“We’ve been serving the large enterprise construction materials industry around the world since 2012 with our inventory management platform,” said David Boardman, CEO of Stockpile Reports. “Now we’re making our patented measurement technology available to everyone.”
After downloading the app – which is available by searching “Stockpiles Lite in the app store” – users point the iPhone camera at the surface of the pile and walk around its perimeter. The app captured high-resolution imagery that is then uploaded to the cloud and processed to generate a report.
Stockpile Reports is now targeting roll-out to further international markets through the year.
According to the company, independent tests have shown the measurements to be within 1% - 2% of LiDAR surveys. The app is designed to work with free-standing stockpiles of up to 3000 m3.
