Overall Satisfaction with Bim360

COFICO has been using Bim360 for most of their live projects. At the moment, we are running Bim360 Docs and Bim360 Field for 2 building projects, which is getting more and more benefits from one of the most useful CDE platforms. Bim360 is used by project team members. This helps us to share our BIM models and drawings to shareholders, review, and get the thing in right without any clashes prior to carry out on-site. Besides, with Bim360360 Field, we can improve our quality control system by changing to a digital solution with quick accessibility and huge data storage, which is great to reduce paperwork on a checklist, issue items, etc.

Safety on-site is managed better with Bim360 Field, particularly in collaborating all sub-contractors in site condition issues, safety requirement, safety root causes... From that recorded data every day, the company/project safety system will be definitely improved. Eventually, Bim360 could save us time and money, because it helps to improve the coordination and communication on the field, and it lets us see the issues and problems before they get more expensive for us to pay.
  • Well-integrated with BIM softwares from Autodesk, keeps the BIM workflow run well from design to construction on site
  • A lot of great features and functions as per each Bim360 software
  • Ability to customize for our own format on checklist, drawings, etc.
  • Need more link-able options between all softwares in Bim360
  • Need to improve performance with huge data models on mobile devices
  • Need the ability to share licenses between all softwares in Bim360
  • We've consolidated the BIM process with a cloud CDE
  • Saves us time and money with communication among shareholders on the field
  • Has improved the BIM profile of the company, business development, and marketing
Bim360 is a CDE in the overall BIM softwares from Autodesk. If you are using Revit, Navisworks or Building design suite from Autodesk, it's highly recommended that Bim360 be the CDE of choice to get your project into BIM technology.
Good for
  • Viewing drawings and BIM models on the field across all shareholders
  • Systematic QA/QC and safety checklists
  • Auto-generating reports for better improvement
  • Reducing paperwork
It is not suitable for tender, though.
