The company’s construction-focused, cloud-based data management tools will be integrated within Autodesk BIM 360
Autodesk has announced the acquisition of Assemble Systems, a developer of SaaS tools for general contractors which support the construction phases of a project. Assemble’s software enables construction professionals to condition, query and connect data to key workflows across bid management, estimating, scheduling, site management and finance.
Only last year Autodesk made a strategic Forge investment in the company. To follow so quickly with an acquisition is an exceptionally rapid move for Autodesk, which would indicate that Assemble was doing something customers really liked.
Founded in 2011 and incubated with a construction firm, it’s quoted as having 174 unique customers, in nearly 1,000 sites and offices working on 12,700 projects, a quarter of which are in the ENR top 400 firms. From those that have used it for cost comparison between models and for pricing up jobs, we have only heard rave reviews.
Over time, Assemble Systems’ solution will be integrated within Autodesk’s BIM 360 platform and will be sold globally. It will strengthen Autodesk’s BIM 360 offering for the project lifecycle by connecting the preconstruction and site execution phases, enabling team members to access critical parts of project data.
