Dodge Data & Analytics Receives Best of Show Award from Architosh for Sweets Apps for Revit and AutoCAD

Award recognizes apps’ potential for workflow transformation through seamless integration of building product data

NEW YORK, June 14, 2016 – Dodge Data & Analytics’ Sweets apps for Revit and AutoCAD were awarded Architosh’s “BEST of SHOW” honor in the Building Information Modeling (BIM) software category at the AIA Convention 2016, May 19-22 in Philadelphia.

The annual awards given by Architosh, a leading trade publication serving CAD and 3-D design professionals worldwide, highlight examples of excellence, innovation and emergent paths for technologies in architectural practice.

Dodge was recognized for the elegant integration between Sweets data and the Autodesk applications Revit and AutoCAD, which enables users to bring Sweets’ richly annotated products directly into their design tools at an early stage.

“We saw huge potential for a product integration tool to help add structure and efficiency to the architectural workflow as BIM content and product information proliferates,” said Mike Petrullo, CEO of Dodge Data & Analytics. “Long before the advent of BIM and CAD software, Sweets was a trusted source of product information for architects. We believe the Sweets apps enable us to provide this value to a new generation of design, and this award is a validation of our efforts.”

Launched in January 2016, the Sweets app for Revit provides product integration for the 3-D design software’s 400,000-strong user base, while Sweets for AutoCAD, previewed at AIA and launching later this year, offers support for 2-D design projects and will be available to millions of AutoCAD users worldwide.

The Sweets apps are a key component of Dodge’s commitment to simplify design professionals’ workflow by delivering Sweets’ richly annotated products right into their design tools. A number of key partner companies have already adopted the Sweets app for Revit, including Allegion, C/S Group, Sloan, Armstrong Ceilings, Excel Dryer, and Maxxon Corporation. Since AIA, other firms such as AMX by Harman, American Specialties, Inc., and Terrazzo & Marble Supply have also begun implementing the new software.
