Asia’s leading field management software developer has announced an integration with Autodesk Construction Cloud.

Novade‘s proprietary platform will be connected to the Autodesk cloud, which offers a portfolio of software and services that combines advanced technology, a builders network, and predictive insights for construction teams.

The integration seeks to break down data silos between office and field teams on construction projects by connecting information between Novade and BIM 360, a construction management software in Autodesk Construction Cloud. 

On the announcement, Denis Branthonne, CEO of Novade, said: “This exciting integration between Novade and Autodesk Construction Cloud is the start of our journey to deepen relationships with technology partners built towards truly connected construction.

“Tech companies have to move with the times – our customers want their data to move seamlessly between their favourite systems and applications.

“The more we can help the construction industry remove data friction, the faster the industry will achieve digital transformation.”

Novade digitises construction processes in the field such as safety inspections, permits to work, and quality inspections.

Autodesk BIM 360 is widely adopted by construction teams worldwide looking to collaborate throughout all project stages.

Both tools are trusted by many of the world’s largest contractors, property developers, and facility operators – particularly across Europe and Asia. 

By connecting the Autodesk and Novade platforms, users should be able to share their safety and quality data from the field in Novade with other construction stakeholders in BIM 360.

Novade users can also incorporate the latest drawings from BIM 360 within their field-based workflows and minimise rework issues arising from field teams using the wrong drawing.

James Cook, head of Integrations at Autodesk Construction Solutions, said: “Construction projects move quickly, so office and field teams need to remain in sync to ensure everyone is working from the latest information.

“By enabling customers to connect their project data and documents between BIM 360’s construction management workflows and Novade’s field workflows, office and field teams can streamline collaboration to minimise miscommunications and rework.”
