Applied Software® announced today that its proposal to custom-develop an add-on for BIM 360 DocsTM was selected by Autodesk as part of a recent "BIM 360 TechBox" competition. The Autodesk® program tasked Autodesk partners with building tools on the BIM 360 platform that solve business challenges specific to the construction industry. Only two proposed solutions were chosen.    The new Applied Software tool, "360Sync for BIM 360 Docs," is anticipated to be available in May and will synchronize files to/from local servers/computers with Autodesk's BIM 360 Docs.    "Construction projects require an enormous amount of document and file management," said Applied Software President Richard Burroughs. "While cloud-based services such as BIM 360 Docs have emerged as a great way to make these documents available on-demand, there is a challenge in how to keep the files hosted on these services up-to-date with the latest available version. 360Sync for BIM 360 Docs will simplify this issue, making it much easier to create and maintain a 'single version of the truth.'"   With 360Sync for BIM 360 Docs, users can simply leverage what they're already doing and push ...

ATLANTA, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Applied Software®, a leading systems integrator in the AEC, construction and manufacturing industries, today unveiled eVolve™ Fabrication, a new fabrication software solution for electrical contractors.
