Unifying Project Data at All Phases with Egnyte and Autodesk

A successful building project requires vast data, from architects' drawings to engineers' calculations to builders' material lists. Projects can quickly become chaotic without a platform to unify and manage this data as important information gets lost in the shuffle. That's why it's vital to have a system for unifying design and construction project documents. By unifying all the data in one platform, everyone involved in the project can easily access the information they need when they need it. This not only saves time and prevents frustration but also helps to ensure that the project is completed on schedule and within budget. In short, unifying project data is essential for ensuring the success of any building project.

As anyone who has ever worked on a building project knows, architects, engineers, and builders often work with many different information sources. In the past, this data was usually stored in separate applications, making it difficult to get a holistic view of the project. By integrating those applications you are helping to ensure that everyone is on the same page and that no critical details are overlooked. This also helps to streamline the construction process by eliminating the need for manual data entry. As a result, building projects run smoothly from start to finish.

Egnyte Autodesk accelerates the pace of project activity. When integrated with Autodesk's Revit, AutoCAD, and Construction Cloud, Egnyte's solution unifies, protects, and controls all project data, making it easy for architects, engineers, and builders to collaborate on projects and ensure that everyone is working with the most up-to-date information. Working in concert, Egnyte and Autodesk improve project coordination, reduce errors and omissions, and accelerate project delivery.

The Egnyte Autodesk integration provides capabilities to access files at any time and any place:

For Revit files

  • Preview files without using specialized software, including the ability to quickly rotate, zoom, and measure within the file.
  • Develop custom workflows.

For AutoCAD files

  • Users access, update, and create new files all from within AutoCAD. 
  • Users can save drawings back to Egnyte for enhanced file sharing and management. 
  • Users leverage Egnyte's robust versioning control and security settings to ensure you are constantly working on the right file at the right time.

For Construction Cloud

  • Create custom integrations that intelligently synchronize documents between Egnyte and your PlanGrid, BIM 360, Pype, and Autodesk Build projects. This helps teams organize information and stay updated. 
  • Automatically push marked-up drawings from Autodesk Construction Cloud into Egnyte. 
  • Ensure all project documents are in a single location and enforce compliance and governance policies across your organization, including archive and retention policies.

Egnyte’s native integration with Autodesk is a dream come true for architects, engineers, and builders who want to unify their data. By integrating the two systems, accuracy is increased, efficiency is gained, and time is saved. Architects can easily find the files they need with the help of the search function, and engineers can quickly retrieve the data they need for their projects. In addition, builders can use the revision history to see which drawings have been changed and make it easy to stay updated on the latest changes. Thanks to the Egnyte Autodesk integration, working with data is now easier and more efficient than ever.

"The combination of migrating our project data to Egnyte, and then integrating Egnyte with our Autodesk environment, improved our operations so much that our executive team took notice. That success gave us the credibility to propose other ambitious IT projects." — Blaine Crawford l Director of IT, C.W. Driver Cos.

C.W. Driver integrated Egnyte and Autodesk Construction Cloud to ensure project teams both in the office and on project sites work with the most current information. By deploying this integration, they connect the project teams and share information more efficiently. As a result, they can deliver better results to our clients in a shorter amount of time. And that's something everyone can benefit from. Read their case study to learn more about C.W. Driver's journey.
