Last month, hundreds of global users gathered at the Gaylord Texan in Dallas for Revizto’s first-ever user conference - RevUP 2023. The event united innovative and passionate AEC industry members and leaders from around the world to build more collaborative organizations. It also showcased the latest cutting-edge technologies, thought-provoking panel discussions and inspiring keynote speakers. If you missed it, here are five highlights from #RevUP2023.
#1. Revizto’s Phone App Announcement
During his conference opener, Arman Gukasyan, Founder & CEO of Revizto, revealed one of the most exciting product updates that had attendees buzzing: the Revizto fully functional phone application. With the app, users can access all of their project data, including sheets and 3D models, and track issues from their phones. This enables them to review and collaborate on project information from anywhere, anytime, without being tied to a desktop computer.
The app's intuitive interface and user-friendly features make it easy for anyone to use and will be available for Revizto users to download from the App Store and Google Play on April 12, 2023. Here is what some of the users that tested it out at Revizto’s booth had to say:
“I used the app for five minutes and definitely left thinking it would lead to more adoption in the field by our internal project teams as well as the subcontractors. Being able to fly the model with how light/easy it was while going through issues in both 2D and 3D will definitely help.” - Shaun Carollo, Hoar Construction
“Revolutionary app that will help push construction into the 21st century. A surprisingly quick way to view models from your phone!” - Jeff Kocinski, SCB

#2. New Certification Program
The first global user conference also celebrated Revizto’s brand-new Certification Program in partnership with Global eTraining. The exam and course to become Expert Level 1 certified was successfully launched during RevUP 2023 and was an exclusive perk for attendees. The highly demanded and sold-out certification course and exam will be available online in the near future for RevUP 2023 attendees to take at no additional cost. Revizto then later plans to roll it out to all users. More information on becoming certified and its cost will be published soon. Expert Level 2 certification will be launched during RevUP 2024.
#3. Connections & Collaboration
Revizto stayed true to the mission of Building Better Together by offering RevUP 2023 attendees ample opportunities to network, connect and brainstorm. From the Welcome Reception and the RevUP Rodeo, to conversations by the Barista Station and open discussion white-boarding sessions, users were able to connect and build relationships to keep pushing boundaries in the AECO (architecture, engineering, construction and owner) industry.
The 2022 Collaborator of the Year Awards ceremony was the cherry on top of the exhilarating conference. These awards celebrated the collaboration, creativity and excellence that has been a hallmark of the Revizto community in 15 different categories. Winners include:
