    Autodesk Bim 360 is well suited to the majority of construction projects in my opinion. On the construction side I could see how the straightforward nature of the platform would be well liked. The new update with the widgets is a great touch and allows for ease of site visits by showcasing good to know info like project location on a map and the local weather. You can also customize the "widgets" as you see fit to add more information if necessary to the home screen. From my experience as a LEED consultant, Bim 360 does not differ much from other platforms used for submittal review like Procore. It is easy enough to search for what you want but searches do take a while and you need to move the cursor over every time you search and do not find what you're looking for, which seems very unnecessary. Overall it is fine for reviewing documentation but isn't anything extraordinary.

    Very convenient to manage jobs, quotes, and clients' profiles. There is a home for improvement for project management. So far, I am not really happy with the Gantt chart feature, it is not very customizable and we end up with another system for that. It would be also great if there was a project management dashboard where we could have an overview of the most critical projects and their status.

    Pros

    Autodesk Bim 360

    • Live updates between design teams. This keeps the team up to date for quicker design and frees up personnel from having to do file transfers.
    • The cloud-based platform gives your company a little bit of a break on computer requirements.
    • Allows multiple offices and/or cloud-based consultants to collaborate on a design as if they are one office or one company.

    • Billing: straight from a closed, complete job. Carries overall equipment, hours, takes one click to bill.
    • simPRO retains notes on all emails; notes can be entered by anyone to track communication with clients.

    Cons

    Autodesk Bim 360

    • Bim360 is extremely unintuitive and frequently confusing to end users.
    • There are multiple avenues of sharing and collaboration for models and information. The advantages/disadvantages of each and how to perform even the most basic of tasks requires extensive training and mentoring for even the most advanced of users.
    • There are many enormous limitations and constraints to BIM 360 that are not immediately obvious and even contrary to published marketing materials and even product naming.
    • Development cycles of the product are seemingly monthly, but incredibly minor. This makes the desperately-needed and glaringly obvious massive usability, capability, and performance improvements into deal-breakers and hair pulling events. Change cannot come fast enough.
    • There are no integrations into Microsoft's Azure AD SSO or other 3rd party SSOs available for SMBs. This makes the provided MFA a huge headache for all SMBs.
    • There are no integrations into the Microsoft 365 ecosystem for SharePoint/OneDrive or Outlook. This is desperately needed for most organizations using Bim360.

    AutoDesk support is slow and if you are not an enterprise customer they will likely tell you to go to forums and post for help pushing the support on the high-level end-users (some of which are AutoDesk employees). I haven't actually had issues requiring support with docs altough there are some features I wish it had

    It is a great option for solar project management. It needs some improvements for real-time one-page reports, inventory management, scheduling and custom views. I believe these will come because they listen to their customers. I would also like to see some better training and not be expected to pay out of pocket for it.

    Alternatives Considered

    Autodesk Bim 360

    The saving in reduced field changes/mistakes quickly paid for the license plus some. The software allows for easy data collection, especially at project completion for field software by checklist creation. Furthermore, the internal punch-list tracking, tracking completion lists and punch lists created for us by others is optimal compared to the competition. We chose Bim360 over other options due to its ability to import out of other software programs directly into the system, adding reports in one location and then distributing it to subcontractors and internally from there to fix deficiencies. It does the tracking, importing, markups of pictures and document viewing well and fulfills our needs.

    Motorcentral, a software that is part of Trade Me and helps car dealer to manage their stock. Based on my experience, simPRO has way more features and better customer service. Motorcentral doesn't have help to keep most tasks under one system, the only real advantage is that they integrate with the car dealer website so that the stock is always up to date.

    Return on Investment

    Autodesk Bim 360

    • Positively we use for all safety items, so its potential to save money is really something cannot be quantified. It has helped document trends, big items leading trends and odd ball cases which overall helps perfecting process to eliminate those trends and save time.
    • Negative impact is we need to pay for another program to handle budget, submittals and bidding so we are paying for two systems and paying for all employees to learn each system and possible make errors since there are differences in the systems.
