What do you like best?

After being in the Reseller channel many years ago, the main thing that the AEC Collection Solves is having access to all platforms without a huge overhead. This is pivotal for those clients that execute every aspect of a project but maybe only need a certain software 5% of the time. Clients were more inclined to not utilize certain tools because their frequency of use did not match the cost that was associated. This allows them to confidently access many tools in their toolkit while optimizing overhead costs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One of the downsides that I see to the AEC collection is that the Installations are still very large. This poses issues to those that are utilizing a number of the tools in the collection as it put a strain on the hardware requirements. Having more flexibility to virtualize the software and licenses would be beneficial. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are able to, evaluate what products are going to be used by each user or user group and optimize how you package your deployments from there. This will help the IT team immensely when a new hire is brought on board so that they are operational right out of the gate instead of waiting for the installs to happen. Also, you want to make sure that the users have access to the updates on a regular basis so that they are in line with the other team members and using the same build of the software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main problem that we are able to solve is being able to give access to a large toolkit for the teams to leverage in all aspects of the project. This allows us to train and execute more work internally which increases efficiency and productivity. Standardizing the platform that we are using as well instill in us confidence that we are going to see minimal to no information loss when passing files back and forth between all members of the team.

What do you like best?

The collection gives us access to our most commonly used titles and having more seats than we might likely have if we purchased individually allows us to cross train designers to move from AutoCAD to revit or try out Infraworks Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some titles we could use are missing like a basic inventor for 3D content and I wish BIM360 was bundled with, or an option to save on BIM360 Design if we are AEC collection subscribers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Provides a lot of licensing flexibility for less cost than 2 titles alone. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating our water wastewater project designs. We are a full service firm so we do survey, architecture, mechanical, electrical and process design. Recap pro has been good to have to take advantage of the ever more common point cloud. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

One stop shop for all the applications needed to provide services to my clients. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Price point and interactivity between applications. Efforts should be made for a universal database that all apps pull from so changes from one are reflected in the others, thus reducing re-work and keeping on budget for clients. This will allow for more deliverables, in shorter time for the same money. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are a small consulting business providing Civil Engineering and Surveying services, you will have all the tools needed to collaborate in our industry with this collection. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having all the tools that a large company can afford in one suite, permits a sole proprietor to compete. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The AEC collections gives the best value for your buck.

When a company is about to purchase more than one software of the Autodesk's flagship programs it is better to use one of the collections Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The addition of the collections in turn got rid of the software suites and packages.

This is a nightmare to manage as an administrator.

The autodesk deployment timelines have almost doubled with more attention needed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The AEC collections gives admins the ability to pick and choose what software is installed on an end user's computer. This is able to save space on a computers computer and less of a performance degredation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Using Architecture is a simpler platform for me to use as opposed to Revit, the other software used in my office. There are always multiple ways to do each command, which helps customize the use for each user. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I recently needed to insert 3D columns into a project, and the library was difficult to understand. I couldn't find square HSS tubes in the list, which was very confusing. I think the library for these items could be better organized. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My work goes much faster when using the Architecture program versus when I was using LTE a year ago. I am able to better utilize my time, and it also has fewer "fatal errors" compare to LTE. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the ubiquity of the software throughout the industry. I feel pretty confident that we'll be investing in tools with compatibility as a result. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As an electrical contractor, the lack of features I need to to my job efficiently is downright painful. I don't like having to invest thousands of dollars in SysQue as an add-on for a feature set I feel should be available out of the box with Revit. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We interface with a lot of other subcontractors, general contractors, and clients. From preplanning, to modeling, prefabrication, digital point layout, and records, I think we're using AEC Collection products at every stage. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes too much is just too much. A user may need more than one platform, but not all in the package. It means I am buying more than I use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
