Going Beyond the Call for Better Business Outcomes
Eric Colbert & Associates (ECA) is a growing firm that has been using CADD as a full-service partner for more than a decade. When transitioning to Revit, ECA turned to CADD for implementation services and training. CADD’s deep understanding of ECA’s business led to an implementation that went much further than the standard transition from AutoCAD to Revit.
When moving forward with new software workflows, ECA wanted to be strategic and ensure that its implementation had a positive impact on the bottom line without causing any setbacks for current projects. CADD viewed this transition as an opportunity to optimize processes across the board.
During ECA’s transition to Revit, CADD looked to improve productivity through automating as much as possible without affecting the quality of work. CADD developed custom Dynamo scripts to automate workflows and led live Dynamo training sessions to ensure that the ECA staff would fully understand the impact the new tools and processes would have on their manual workflows.
CADD’s Dynamo script development and script enablement trainings have led to considerable automation within their Revit workflow, cutting out 4 hours per day of work that was previously done manually. We estimate that improvements to their workflow has saved ECA approximately $15,000 in billable hours per month.
CADD and ECA’s partnership is unique in that it has always pushed past the status quo. What started out as a run-of-the-mill Revit implementation, led to a full-scale automation project that has had a measurable impact to the bottom line. As a result of CADD’s proactive approach to consulting, ECA was able to maximize the return on their software investment and create immediate observable improvements to their workflow.
