Connect & Construct Chronicle OTC Edition 3 Tuesday, March 5, 2019 Tracy's View "Our vision of a more complete, integrated Autodesk construction platform serving all phases of construction will drastically improve productivity, deliver great software to people who deserve it, and create real value for our world." Customer Success Highlight Clancy Construction According to Aidan Maher, Contracts Manager at Clancy Construction, they are already recognizing the benefits of BIM 360 – especially after the successful completion of a high-profile project. Here's what he had to say: "The introduction of BIM 360 has brought about a better system for the company to deal with quality, project data recording, checklists and much more. The ability to use the software on the computer, tablet and even phone app makes it a very user-friendly system. I have found it very beneficial for creating and closing out defects on projects that I have worked on. Our greatest challenge with the software is getting each project team to utilise it fully. Like all new procedures and technology, it can take time for any system to get up and running. Recently we have also asked design teams who we work in partnership with and who work for our clients to use the system for their quality checks during the project. This has added great value and information flow. Collaboration on a project is very important and I feel that BIM 360 field can enhance this. To sum up, generally speaking the company can see the benefits from the system and I am sure we will be using BIM 360 Field going forward year on year." Congratulations to the account team led by John Bennett and Customer Success Specialist Kristina Poluyanova - keep up the great work!
