Autodesk and Trimble Sign Agreement to Increase Interoperability

Trimble  and Autodesk, Inc. have entered into an interoperability agreement aimed at saving customers time and reducing project costs typically associated with workflow inefficiency across different suppliers’ technologies. This will benefit architects, engineers and contractors, and importantly, project owners by enabling more freedom to optimize technology workflows needed to meet the complex requirements of today’s construction projects.

Autodesk and Trimble have a shared goal of meeting the evolving needs of the building and infrastructure industries. Reliable, fluent exchange of information among multiple stakeholders and platforms is essential to this end. The Trimble and Autodesk collaboration demonstrates their ongoing commitment to support open industry standards such as Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) and Construction Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie), and can enable current and prospective Autodesk and Trimble customers working on the same projects to work together seamlessly through optimized file compatibility across applications.

Trimble Buildings Presents: The Budget is the Bank

Managers at Adolfson & Peterson (A&P) state that each project is paid for by budgets that are defined at the beginning of the project: a series of bank accounts that contain the money that is allocated to the various construction phases. Exceed the budget and you overdraw – something we all want to prevent, and Prolog can help.

In this webinar, you will learn how A&P’s Kevin Lind and Rick Poston analyzed and solved the challenge of cost status and predictability. Explaining the steps their organization went through to put a highly accurate system in place, our guest speakers will (re)introduce you to Prolog’s powerful budget and cost management features.
