Description

Description

As with many software as a service (SaaS) providers, Autodesk offers products that support cloud-based collaboration and enable application deliverables right to your desktop or mobile device. As customers, we need to understand what these tools can do for us and how to apply them to our corporate needs. What does Autodesk® PLM 360 cloud-based data management look like to our company? Will BIM 360™ Field or BIM 360™ Glue® cloud-based software help us to better manage site or subcontractor products and deliverables? How can we capitalize on Fusion 360™ software for project-based collaboration between manufacturers and construction teams to solve real-world problems? What about mobile apps, such as Autodesk® FormIt™ for site-based problem description and resolution for project managers? What does it really look like to be able to access any of my work from anywhere: at my desk, in the boardroom, or what have you? Join us for a panel discussion on these powerful new technologies.
