If you’re a smartphone user, you understand the concept of apps. By itself, the phone fills needs that most people have, but maybe you need more. When you download and install purpose-built apps, they can address your specific needs that a smartphone doesn’t perform out-of-the-box. The right app can expand the functionality of your device and improve its efficiency, effectiveness and performance.

A similar situation exists in the AEC industry with popular established products like Autodesk Revit®. Revit is a fantastic product that can do so much. It’s very mature in the industry. However, like most solutions, it performs even better when combined with purpose-built apps. The apps can extend the software’s capability so users can do more with their Revit software than it is able to do out-of-the-box.

When you want to become more efficient and more productive, solve a specific problem, automate a process, offer unique value on projects, or achieve complex processes like file and data sharing, apps are the way to go.

Apps  enhance the platform, whether it’s Revit or some other Autodesk bestseller. Software developers can utilize an open API to enable additional functionality for solving specific challenges.

Sorting through the options and choosing the most useful apps can be a time-consuming job.

An example of collections is Graitec PowerPacks. These collections of apps perform very specific tasks, processes, workflows, or manage specific functionality.
