Coming Soon To 360 Sync!
Written By Michael Reuter

In the previous blog post, we talked about some of the most recent improvements we’ve made. You can check out that blog here. We’ve updated 360 Sync an awful lot lately, but we’re not stopping there. Here’s what our next year’s roadmap looks like: an Excel Integration, PlanGrid, Cloud Deployment & Data Transfer.

We are going to be super-busy for the rest of the year!

Excel Integration

Our next improvement is going to be between Autodesk Docs (or BIM 360) & Excel.

360 Sync will be able to download the Issues from Autodesk & export them to an Excel file for easy editing. All of the data will be in an easy to use, easy to edit Excel template. Then, when you have updated all of your Issue data, you just save the template. You can choose when/how often you want to sync the data back to Autodesk with our scheduling tool. Then, when the data is uploaded, all of the issues are modified per the Excel sheet.

We will be looking to build this out further with our other integrations (like Procore, Bluebeam, Newforma, PlanGrid, & more).

PlanGrid Integration

I feel like I’ve been saying this for a while, but a PlanGrid integration is coming. So all of you General Contractors & subcontractors who know, use & love PlanGrid, get pumped! You will be able to copy files & folders to or from PlanGrid. Document management with PlanGrid will be easier than ever!

Cloud Deployment

Soon, you will be able to use 360 Sync in the cloud via eVolve Foresite! You’ll be able to upload or download files to or from the data sources you use every day, just like our desktop app.

But the real kicker for this is that a cloud deployment means an almost real-time file sync – 360 Sync users will no longer have to rely on scheduled tasks to sync – an updated file in one place will be synced in almost real-time to another data source!

Data Transfer A Cloud Deployment also allows us to do even bigger things like transferring data on demand, or on demand, when a specific status is met! Soon, with 360 Sync, not only will you be able to transfer documents from one place to another, but also the data associated with those documents. We plan to transfer files + data for the following workflows:
  • Documents
  • Drawings
  • Submittals
  • RFIs
  • Issues
  • More!
This is great. How do I learn more? If you’re interested in learning more about 360 Sync, find out how you can get in on our early beta testing program, would like to see a 30-minute or less demo showing off 360 Sync, want pricing information &/or would like to try out our software on a trial, please reach out to us.

Tips to Improve Safety On Site

Safety shouldn’t be something that management talks about, but doesn’t enforce. Jobsite safety should take precedence over every other aspect of your company, and if it is not a priority in your company, it needs to be. Making safety the most important thing not only helps to reduce costs, but it can also improve productivity on site. Because accidents lead to additional costs as well as delays in projects, when you make safety a priority, you lessen the chances of accidents occurring on site, and you save money in the process.

360 Sync Error Blog: Index was out of range

Usually, what happens when you see an “Index was out of range” error, it’s because (1) your root folder was deleted or changed names, (2) there is already a folder or a file name in the destination location & there can’t be 2 files or folders with the same name, (3) the file or folder name contains a restricted character (like < > ^ \ / ), or in some rare cases, (4) a folder was inadvertently uploaded as a file.

How To Build A Best In-Class Fab Shop

There are many advantages to improving your fab shop, one being efficiency. A fab shop should be a structured outlet designed to efficiently organize material and easily send it out to contractors on the field. Having a best in-class fab shop will create a more efficient system that helps your company. Another benefit of having a best in-class fab shop is safety. Because the fab shop is operating in an organized and efficient manner, it won’t be necessary to have as many people working in the shop. And as a result, Bauman explained that, “the less people you have on a jobsite, the safer it is.” To go along with this, improving your fab shop leads to more organization, which allows you to complete the same amount of work with less people and save money in the process.
