Sensera Systems, a manufacturer of solar-powered job site monitoring and site security products, has integrated its SiteCloud software with Autodesk BIM 360. The integration saves time and improves accuracy of job site documentation by fully automating the collection and archival of as-built progress images and enabling direct comparison with design plans.
Trimble and Autodesk, Inc. have entered into an interoperability agreement aimed at saving customers time and reducing project costs typically associated with workflow inefficiency across different suppliers’ technologies.
