Knowing and utilizing the reverse gear in your car adds a whole new level of functionality and efficiency. Understanding what the “R” means on your dashboard may not change the way you use your car 97% of the time, but it makes your use of the car easier, saving you time and money.
Unfortunately, that’s the case with a lot of technology. Whether it’s a smart phone or an integrated software package, users frequently don’t delve below the topline functionality of new technology unless compelled by a need or an authority (i.e., management only gives you one software system or demands that you use it).

The challenge, however, is to stretch – not break – your comfort level. A good first step is to take time to understand what’s available. Different people have different processes: some may read the user manual; others may click an icon and wait to see what happens; others want to be walked through the system by an expert. Most take many different routes to discovery. Whatever your path, the important thing is the curiosity and the willingness to learn and discover new functionality and flexibility.
By digging deeper into building information modeling processes using Revit, for example, you can discover that you have additional functionality you’re not using, from communications to inventory to design changes. The more you can effectively utilize the features of a platform, the fewer problems you’ll face regarding interoperability and the more savings you’ll realize in time and money.
The eVolve Electrical and eVolve Mechanical consultants know how to guide contractors like you through an easier transition to BIM processes and take full advantage of the features of construction project software, like Revit – from spooling to conduit bends, kitting to hanger layout, pipe alignment to auto-routing, and standardized content.
