Overall Satisfaction with Bim360

We use BIM360 extensively for our coordination work between our subcontractors. We have our modeling departments resolve conflicts between trades and then by building off the models that we access in the field using BIM360. This helps us to get everything in right and without any conflicts the first time and it saves us bundles of time in our schedule. We also use BIM360 for our quality control particularly during the constructions progress to cut down on the amount of punch list items that would need to be addressed at the end of the project.This saves us time and money as we are often able to catch issues early on before the small problems grow into the big expensive ones.
  • Model integration and field viewing
  • Quality Control Checklists
  • Issue creation and distribution
  • Drawing viewing and storage
  • Issue notifications and reminders
  • Daily Reports
  • It saves us time and money on our quality control
  • It helps us deliver better products to the owners and as a result win more work for them
  • It is simple and easy to use and it saves us time and money in training our crews
I think BIM360 has much better quality control tools that are much more streamlined than what is available on Procore. However the RFI, Submittal, Drawings tools in Procore are much easier to use and the drawings are much easier to access and view in the field using Procore. BIM360 however has in field model viewing capabilities that Procore does not have.
I think BIM360 is an excellent tool for quality control and in field model viewing for construction purposes. The checklists, issue generation and punchlist tools are amazing and you would be hard pressed to find a better quicker and simpler software for these tools. The daily reports and drawing storage and viewing are not BIM360's strongest fields.
