Seemingly overnight, accelerated technological changes are impacting the AEC industry. With this digitalization shift, the building lifecycle process encapsulates new point solutions for the people who design, engineer, construct, and operate in the built environment. As data, documents, and deliverables flow through the various project stages, an interpreter is needed to help navigate this new tech landscape.
At AU 2020, Autodesk unveiled new products known as Autodesk BIM Collaborate, Autodesk BIM Collaborate Pro, Autodesk Takeoff, and Autodesk Build that reside within the Autodesk Construction Cloud™ umbrella. This goes much deeper than a rebranding campaign of a product by providing an entirely new “Unified Platform” designed to build better.
Together we can discover the importance of how this platform translates across design, engineering, and construction workflows, the purpose behind each product, and why the Unified Platform is vital for connectivity and collaboration across the AEC space.
Join Chad Close, Don Quinn, and Bianca Holtier Coury as we share Unified Platform insights from the perspectives of an architect, engineer, and construction manager. During this webinar, we will unpack:
Tiffany Willard, Business Development Specialist
Tiffany works with global organizations in the AEC and manufacturing space to identify systems that are broken or need improvement to advance tech adoption, overall productivity, project quality, communication, collaboration, continuous learning, and new hire onboarding. In short, she helps organizations pinpoint where they can improve to boost their bottom line.
Tiffany began building her sales career Chicago, IL, and Dubuque, IA following her graduation from Capri College in 2001. While working in recruitment advertising she realized the need for online communication and collaboration, and how vital it would be for the future workplace. It’s this value of innovation that led her to join the Eagle Point team in 2009, and continues to power her discussions with individuals who are responsible for driving digital transformation at their organizations.
