We are joining the thousands heading to Las Vegas and the 2011 running of Autodesk University with extra excitement. Why? Well, we have just released version 10 of our CodeBook platform (read our news release). The revamped application now supports SQL Server database tools, among a whole host of new capabilities, and we will be showing it on stand 4C at AU from 29 November to 1 December.
CodeBook version 10 adds CAD and BIM support for ArchiCAD 15, AutoCad Architecture 2011 and 2012, Bentley Architecture V8i, MicroGDS 2011, Revit Architecture 2011 and 2012, and Revit MEP 2011 and 2012. It also supports Word and Excel 2007 for reporting purposes; Windows XP and Windows 7 64-bit operating systems are both supported, and CodeBook v11 also now offers SQL Server as a database option.
Of all the new capabilities, we are most excited about the SQL Server option. CodeBook has been used by thousands of industry professionals to capture data about complex buildings using Microsoft Access. By adding SQL Server support, we are taking the product to a new level, opening up the potential for simultaneous, multi-user access to share BIM information during program, design, construction and handover processes.
Our product roadmap for 2012 includes further enhancements to make CodeBook genuinely enterprise-class, and to support more distributed team-working. Web support for data entry and reporting, and better facilities management tools will extend CodeBook’s value for designers, contractors and building owners and operators alike.
Come and see us on stand 4C at Autodesk University 2011. We are looking forward to talking to both existing and prospective new users about the application, and also want to talk to potential new resellers about distribution opportunities. I will be accompanied by CodeBook CMO Andy Hamer and by Cyril Verley of CDV Systems, one of CodeBook’s staunchest supporters.
