FotoIN brings its patented photo documentation system to save BIM 360 Docs project teams 75 percent of the time on site photos
ATLANTA, June 7, 2018 (Newswire.com) - FotoIN Mobile Corporation (FotoIN), today announced completion of the integration with Autodesk Forge platform. FotoIN's patented, best-in-class, construction photo documentation solution is now directly connected with BIM 360 Docs file management to further simplify photo documentation capture and management across photo-heavy use cases in AEC.
BIM 360's open platform is built on Autodesk Forge, a cloud developer and API platform that enables customers and third-party developers to easily integrate construction apps and tools to connect workflows, including preconstruction, fabrication, site execution, handover and operations.
Construction teams generate extraordinary amounts of data, including thousands of photos documenting issues and progress of a project. FotoIN's integration with the Autodesk BIM 360 project management platform allows our shared customers to break down data silos and bring all of their photo documentation into one place alongside all other project information. We are pleased to have FotoIN as a partner and look forward to bringing added value to our customers.

By automating and streamlining the connection to BIM 360 Docs, project teams will be able to capture and manage photos and associated data across enterprise using FotoIN mobile, web and desktop applications with the photos and data automatically organized to appropriate folder hierarchy in BIM 360 Docs, saving users 75 percent of time in the field and office.
"Construction teams generate extraordinary amounts of data, including thousands of photos documenting issues and progress of a project," said Sarah Hodges, senior director of Autodesk's construction business line.
