Autodesk has extended its building information management (BIM) document management solution BIM 360 Docs to the Android mobile environment. The move comes a year after the product was initially released for desktops and the iOS (Apple) mobile environment.
BIM 360 Docs is a web service for managing construction documents. It uses cloud technology to provide a single point of access to all documentation to any location the information needs to be seen.
According to data published by JBKnowledge, 66% of construction companies in the USA own iOS based devices (iPad/iPhone), while the percentage of Android users is currently around 33%. The report acknowledges that Android use in construction is climbing rapidly as more industry-specific apps arrive on the Android.
As with the iOS version, BIM 360 Docs will have a free version (one project) or a professional version (unlimited projects).
