Germany’s think project! SaaS platform now offers a Google Map interface and a BIM starter pack.
Munich, Germany-based SaaS project platform provider think project! has released a new version of its cross-enterprise collaboration solution. Version 8 makes it possible to easily view comprehensive project data via MapDash – a new visual interface for the presentation of project information – and also provides a BIM Collaboration starter pack.
MapDash is an entirely new optional interface that puts visual representation of their project at users’ fingertips. Projects can be displayed on a Google Map to provide quick overviews of their current status as well as project details, photographs, project progress, deadlines, costs and related documents.
The starter pack for BIM Collaboration encompasses three modules first launched in July 2015 (post) aiming to enable more effective collaboration.
- BIM Exchange simplifies exchange of models between project participants
- BIM Coordination enables coordination of partial models and allows them to be enriched with information
- BIM Review allows verification of models directly from a web browser.
Visualisation also plays an important role, with the inclusion of a high-performance viewer in the BIM starter pack – so no specialist software is required to view models and users can work on-site using a tablet.
Jochen Maurer, Head of Product Management at think project! says:
“Our most important goal of the new release was to make complex project information easier to understand by presenting it visually. Rapidly accessible and reliable information is the foundation for a myriad of decisions made on a daily basis throughout a project, and we wanted to simplify the decision-making process. Our most recent innovation of MapDash offers an entirely new way of visually presenting the valuable information saved in think project!. At a glance, you can see all the important information relating to each of your construction project, as well as relating to the different parts of a major infrastructure construction project.”
