Hundreds of thousands of architects around the globe are being asked to work from home during this global COVID-19 pandemic. To help the AEC industry cope technically with this emergency most CAD and BIM companies with cloud technology are offering solutions to their customers.
GRAPHISOFT for its part is offering BIMcloud as a service (a software as a service, specifically) to its users and offering up 60-free days for users who will need the service but currently don’t use it.
A Best-in-Class Solution
GRAPHISOFT has worked to expand the availability of its BIMcloud technology as a service working worldwide. This will immediately help architects, no matter what country they are working in, reconfigure their project teams for working from home during this global health crisis.
“To help our users adjust to working together while at home, we are offering free 60-day emergency access to BIMcloud as a Service to all commercial ARCHICAD users worldwide,” said Huw Roberts, CEO, GRAPHISOFT.
