Vrex’s team has developed an integration with Newforma Konekt that syncs issues and markups to your Newforma Konekt account and to the VR meeting rooms to ensure up-to-date information allowing you to collaborate in real time. You can teleport directly to issue locations to discuss resolution options with your team, and then resolve them in your everyday software using Newforma Konekt’s add-ins.

In this article, you’ll learn how to set up the integration.
