The first quarter of every year is the perfect time to revisit and reestablish business goals. And if you’re intent on boosting productivity, accelerating adoption of digital tools, and upping your bottom line, our latest integrations may help you get there.
Most construction professionals recognize the importance of integrations. According to JB Knowledge’s 2021 Construction Technology Report, 85% of construction professionals consider mobile integrations as either “Important” or “Very Important” when purchasing software.
That said, integrations continue to be underutilized, which highlights a major opportunity for most firms. JB Knowledge found that over 51% of construction professionals are still manually transferring data from different apps. If you fall into that category, you probably already realize that your processes leave room for error, you’re spending a lot of time on repetitive tasks, and overall, it’s costing you more money than it should.
By adopting the right solutions and integrating your construction apps, you can reap the benefits of a tightly-connected platform that saves you time, reduces human error, and improves productivity. Here are several recently-released integrations worth checking out:
With this integration, teams can access AnchoRock’s safety and compliance management software from within their Autodesk Build or BIM 360 Project Home dashboards for a single, comprehensive overview of project performance. Gain comprehensive safety and compliance management from any device. Manage your entire day-to-day safety program from one location. Complete every field safety requirement and maintain OSHA compliance without ever skipping a beat.
Subcontractors often get the short end of the stick, forced to come out of pocket for labor and materials months before getting paid for their work. Not anymore. Billd allows you to take complete control of your cash flow and run your business on your terms. Access Billd’s financing solutions directly within Autodesk Construction Cloud, alongside key project workflows. You can easily embed Billd in an Autodesk Build or BIM 360 Project Home dashboard to access their financing solutions. The integration displays cost information alongside key construction data from ACC to give you a more streamlined view of your project finances.
BIMSearch visually connects the quantity data of a building and the model. All you have to do is select your search fields or use a predefined search template, and BIMSearch does the rest. The results are highlighted on the model and listed in a table that can be exported to Excel. BIMSearch is an easy-to-use app that makes BIM accessible to everyone.

what3words is a human-friendly way to talk about location. It has divided the world into a grid of 3m x 3m squares and has given each square a unique 3 word address. Embed the what3words online map in Project Home dashboards to help communicate any precise location using just three words, from a site entrance, delivery drop off, incident, asset or team member.
