S. M. Wilson & Co. (S. M. Wilson) has built its reputation on creating amazing client experiences through trust, integrity, and open communication. With gaps in its previous construction management software, S. M. Wilson needed a holistic solution to connect key office and field workflows. By adopting Autodesk Build within Autodesk Construction Cloud™, S. M. Wilson increased transparency across project teams, saving time, money, and energy.
A New Project Management System for Greater Collaboration
S. M. Wilson specializes in projects that vary in size, but non collaborative construction management solutions from multiple providers made it difficult to share project data across teams. This created inefficiencies, potential for rework, and overall frustration.
“The entire project team from architects to engineers to trade partners need to work in unison to solve problems,” says Jamie Berzon, Construction Technology Manager at S. M. Wilson & Co. “We look at technology as a way to enhance tasks and streamline processes to allow our teams to focus on more value-added areas of the project. The software we were using for project management wasn’t as collaborative, and we had difficulty getting buy-in. We want technology to be transparent and easy to use; our teams shouldn’t have to struggle.”
With the availability of Autodesk Build, S. M. Wilson decided to centralize all of their workflows within one solution to streamline construction management activities. With a connected construction management tool that’s scalable across projects, S. M. Wilson could support speed, efficiency, and collaboration across its projects.
“We loved PlanGrid for its sheets and accessibility to drawings but were using a different project management software that was cumbersome and clunky. When Autodesk acquired PlanGrid, we said, ‘Let’s keep an eye on this.’ And as you started to develop Autodesk Build, we were 100% bought in.”
