AUTODESK ADVANCES ITS VISION FOR AUTODESK CONSTRUCTION CLOUD
At CONEXPO, Autodesk shared fresh updates that further enable a consistent, connected, end-to-end experience for our customers—from design to preconstruction to build to operations.
Since the launch of Autodesk Build in 2021, Autodesk has been rapidly delivering on its vision for a connected construction experience with Autodesk Construction Cloud (ACC), where solutions for the entire digital building lifecycle come together.
In the last year alone, Autodesk delivered nearly 300 product updates to ACC, adding new capabilities and connecting critical workflows to help its customers meet the world’s rapidly expanding building and infrastructure needs.
Streamlined submittals process in ACC
One of the biggest updates that Autodesk announced was the addition of AutoSpecs in ACC, giving users a cohesive and connected submittal experience within ACC.
With this new product, users will be able to generate submittal logs in minutes. AutoSpecs automates a manual and error-prone process that can take project teams weeks to complete. This means that teams can spend more time understanding project specifications and focusing on high-value tasks, while still ensuring an accurate and robust submittal log.
Additionally, construction teams can leverage AI to identify missing submittal items before they’re costly errors. AutoSpecs’ suggested submittals, powered by Construction IQ, analyzes the current project specification against historical project data to suggest potentially missing submittals from the project specifications.
Users who purchase the ACC for Construction Operations bundle will have access to AutoSpecs in ACC following its general availability release on March 21, 2023.
Aligning mobile and web experience with the next phase of Autodesk's vision
With ACC, Autodesk is focused on connecting teams, data and workflows across all phases of the project lifecycle on one solution. The company is making these connections stronger every day, enabling data to be streamlined across project stakeholders. Successful project execution means teams in the office and field are connected. Mobile is key to that success.
With that in mind, Autodesk has updated the name of its mobile app to Autodesk Construction Cloud. The ACC mobile app offers users one place to access all their project information from Autodesk Build, Autodesk Docs, Autodesk BIM Collaborate, or PlanGrid–whether online or offline.
Teams can leverage the app to navigate drawings and BIM models, collaborate on issues and checklists, create markups, link project photos, and much more.
Creating a connected experience
These updates add more functionality and present customers with a cohesive experience, as well as enable them to customize or enhance their experience with ACC. It also gives customers an opportunity to revisit their clients’ needs as they continue to run, innovate, and grow their businesses.
