Collect, report, manage, visualize, and analyze your data when and where you need it

Already using OpenGround? OpenGround applications allow you to collect, report, manage, visualize, analyze, and access your geotechnical data when and where you need it.

OpenGround has a collection of role-focused application bundles to customize your access that work directly with OpenGround, Bentley’s collaboration platform for geotechnical data management. Virtuosity offers these OpenGround applications, so you can collect, report, manage, visualize, analyze, and access your geotechnical data.

Note: In order to run OpenGround applications, you need an OpenGround Instance. If you need an OpenGround Subscription, please contact a product sales specialist.

OpenGround Collaborator

Provide your teams across the supply chain with controlled access to a single source of truth to significantly increase collaboration and efficiency.  Improve access and reliability to avoid drilling the same location twice by accessing valuable knowledge from past projects. Your team can make more informed bids and lower risks with reusable archived information.

OpenGround-Data-Collector-video-thumbnail

OpenGround Collector

You can connect the field to the office with Collector.  Your drilling crews collects the data once and the data is immediately made available to your teams when they need it.

OpenGround Cloud

OpenGround Manager

Take advantage of fully connected workflows and standardizations. Between your team and offices, you can manage and control sharing the most current data in standardized formats to fully optimize resources to save.

OpenGround Cloud

OpenGround Integrator

Leverage technology to reduce costs by integrating your GIS, analysis, or visualization tools.

Testimonial_Quote_Marks
“[OpenGround gives us] the ability to determine and cross-reference the organization’s geotechnical parameters and correlations with those available from literature sources. Tender design is made more efficient and [we] can consider a wider range of site properties leading to reductions in geotechnical risk.”
