“Sweets app for Autodesk Revit®” Now Available on the Autodesk App Store

App Revolutionizes the Way Architects & Design Professionals Search, Select & Annotate Building Products

NEW YORK, March 11, 2016 -- Dodge Data & Analytics today announced its Sweets app for Autodesk Revit software is now available for download on the Autodesk App Store.

The Sweets app for Revit is the latest innovation from Sweets, the interactive building product database that reaches hundreds of thousands of design professionals through its website and workflow integration solutions. Available at no cost to architects and design professionals and built on Sweets' extensive database of manufacturers' BIM content, CAD files and specs, the new app enables users to search, select and annotate product data directly within their design without interrupting the workflow or having to manually input data.

For building product manufacturers, this application extends their connection to the key influencers of design deeper into the workflow, making discovery and selection more convenient than before. It also provides valuable metrics on product usage. Early implementations of Sweets ProductTAG include Allegion, Construction Specialties, Excel Dryer, Kimberly-Clark and Taco, Inc.

"The Sweets app for Revit is a game-changer for today's design professionals and building product manufacturers. By immersing product selection directly in the workflow, this innovative application places products in front of design professionals at the earliest possible stage, while simplifying product selection and reducing errors and omissions," said Mike Petrullo, Chief Executive Officer, Dodge Data & Analytics.

"We welcome Sweets as a participant in the Autodesk App Store," said Jim Quanci, senior director of the Autodesk Developer Network. "The Sweets App for Revit is a full function add-in to Autodesk Revit software, offering more functionality to all Autodesk customers in the industry who rely on Revit for their design projects."

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 integrating data and insight seamlessly into the workflows of the design and build communities.
