TOP 5 REASONS TO LOVE BIM SERVER

TOP 5 REASONS TO LOVE BIM SERVER

From the very beginning I am in love with BIM Server. Let me explain why?

1- Remote access is a game changer! You know we have 3 offices and from time to time, our Dubai Team should support the project that Cairo Team is working on, or vice versa. We used to pay a lot for travel and accommodation of the team to go to the other branch and support them a couple of weeks. Now it's hassle free. They just connect tot he server and work on the project without traveling. The other point is our relationship with the clients. We give the client Viewer Access to the project so that they can regularly check our progress. This is such a relief and trust builder for the client. Actually I heard the same comment from many other ArchiCAD users. 


2- Easy to Setup! Even a 10 year old can make the setup. (I am not exaggerating. I have experience with small kids learning & using ArchiCAD as you remember from BIM for Kids post.:)  

3- Does not require super expensive hardware. I think this one is self explanatory:)

4- Flexible: You can access remotely....
you can create a travel pack....
you can set different access rights for different users...
you can assign project specific roles to the users....
you can represent users with any color you want...
 you can see only the objects reserved by you, 
you can can can can and can.... 


5-Internal Messaging System is  great tool for arranging lunch! Apart from it's functionality it brings fun to the office. As you remember during one of our implementations we were deciding on  lunch with the help of BIM Server's internal messaging:))) 

Enjoy your Monday Syndrome :)
