Autodesk, Inc. has signed its final agreement with Pype that will allow them to fully streamline the project management process.
FREMONT, CA: Autodesk, Inc. recently announced that it has engaged in a final agreement to obtain Pype. They are a provider of cloud-based solutions for automating construction project management workflows. The purchase will allow the general contractors, subcontractors, and owners to achieve even more value from Autodesk Construction Cloud. It can be done by automating critical construction workflows like submittals and closeouts to increase productivity and mitigate project risk.
According to the CEO of Autodesk, Andrew Anagnost, “I could not be more optimistic about the future of the building industry.” “Even in challenging times such as those we are currently facing, Autodesk remains focused on making the jobs of people who build easier. Pype’s robust machine learning capabilities will empower Autodesk customers to connect workflows across the building lifecycle in new ways and optimize their businesses for long-term resiliency.”
Pype’s collection of software decreases the dull labor-intensive entry and even the mistakes conducted by humans, which can lead to rework that will increase the expenditure and delay the construction project schedule. The organization’s technology influences artificial intelligence and machine learning to automatically analyze and gain relevant construction data like project plans and conditions that can be utilized all through the lifecycle of the project. However, by automating the outdated manual workforce and transforming the real-time data into actionable information, the construction teams have the authority to enhance their teamwork and project efficiency. The customers of Pype consists of top general contractors like Barton Malow, JE Dunn, McCarthy, Mortenson, and Skanska, among others.
The CEO and co-founder of Pype, Sunil Dorairajan, said that “we’re incredibly proud of the rapid growth Pype has experienced since its founding in 2015.” He further said, “We’ve launched four widely adopted solutions to-date, each rooted in our ongoing mission to automate manual construction workflows for increased productivity and reduced risk. Now as part of Autodesk, we look forward to expanding these automated capabilities to ensure construction teams efficiently progress through projects, from design to closeout.”
