Last week, the construction app BIM 360 Docs was unveiled at Autodesk University Las Vegas. The industry is still buzzing about the announcement and the response has been so positive, we just had to share what others have been saying about the cloud-based document management solution.
“More than a few customers are already anxious to use the new tool, which will not be offered commercially until early next year. In fact, several designers, general contractors, engineers, owners and operators all participated in its development and testing, providing feedback throughout.” – BuiltWorlds
“One potential advantage of Autodesk’s BIM 360 Docs over ProjectWise is that it will probably work well with Autodesk products and affiliates. For those in the AEC industry who find themselves beholden to Autodesk products, this holds quite a lot of potential.” – Engineering.com
“Clearly aimed square at competitors such as Bentley ProjectWise, Bluebeam Studio and Newforma, this marks a sophisticated, modern commitment to document and model sharing at the construction site or in the office in ways that former solutions like Buzzsaw and Design Review could not have made traction.” – ParadigmShift
“Formerly known as Project Alexandria, BIM 360 Docs takes a lot of the pain out of rework (a task that takes up to 25% of any construction project) and reduces materials that are wasted during the process.” – TechnicallySpeaking
“In the keynote address at Autodesk University, the company’s Stacy Scopano, a senior strategy manager for construction, explained that features included the ability to automatically extract 2D pdf documents and plans from a Navisworks design model, and allowing them to be viewed side by side on any device.” – BIM+
“Solving the “single source of truth” problem in the AEC industry is really the biggest productivity hurdle that exist in construction. Another construction industry software provider has cited research that says that the actual “wrench time”—the time when builders are actually building—is just 30 percent of the day. The other 70 percent of the day is spent solving issues like logistics of materials and manpower, organizing construction workflow and obtaining the correct information.” – Architosh
We sure do love press, but we love hearing directly from our customers more…
The AU crowd certainly did not hide their enthusiasm for the new construction app. In fact, many expressed their happiness verbally to the BIM 360 crew working the booth.
“Where have you been all my life?” – Unknown
“I’m kind of obsessed with this product” – Anonymous
Sure, we could go on, but there will be plenty of opportunities to share customer experiences and media sentiment as more users get onboard and we approach 2016 commercial release.
