App Seamlessly Links Architects, Engineers & Contractors with Building Product Manufacturers Within Autodesk Revit®
NEW YORK – January 20, 2016 – For more than a century, Dodge Data & Analytics’ Sweets (http://sweets.construction.com/) has connected architecture, engineering and construction professionals with the latest offerings of building product manufacturers. Now, Dodge offers a faster way for the two to collaborate within Autodesk Revit® building design and construction software via Sweets app for Revit®, available now for download at Sweets app for Revit and, coming soon, in the Autodesk App Store.
For architecture, engineering and construction professionals, Sweets app for Revit operates within one of the most widely used architecture and design software tools in the world. Available at no cost to end users and based on Sweets’ extensive database of manufacturers’ BIM content, CAD files and specs, it enables users to search, select and annotate product data directly within the design application without interrupting the workflow, having to manually input data, or weighing down the project file with heavy BIM content.
For building product manufacturers, this innovative application offers products to key influencers of design and selection earlier in the design process, while simplifying product selection and reducing errors and omissions. It also provides valuable metrics on product usage. Early implementations of ProductTAG include Allegion, Construction Specialties, Excel Dryer and Taco, Inc.
“Sweets is changing to meet design professionals where they work. Our new in-app extension for Revit makes the product selection process easier, faster, more accurate, and more cost effective, by integrating within the project design workflow. Sweets app for Revit was met with very positive feedback when previewed last month at Autodesk University,” said Sharon Lubrano, Sweets Vice President and General Manager.
Sweets app for Revit is the first app created by Dodge in partnership with Global Product Data, LLC, as part of a strategic focus on product development. Sweets app for AutoCAD is planned for release later this year.
