02. Web platform & viewer

BIM Track’s web platform is a browser-based workspace where all of your projects' real-time issue information can be accessed by the team. BIM Track’s web platform is ideally suited for those acting as PM on a project such as GCs or experienced owners or any stakeholder that doesn’t have access to BIM/CAD software. A user-friendly issue list with classification features makes it easy to prioritize and organize issues & helps you engage more people in the BIM process.  Users can see overall issue resolution progress, with the ability to drill down to issue specifics as required. They can also see full issue context in the model using BIM Track’s web viewer:

BIM Track’s web viewer allows you to import, display and navigate multiple IFC models from different BIM/CAD authoring software programs to create a federated model, complete with revision history. You can also import 2D plans from PDFs and overlay them with the models for maximum issue context and to include all relevant teams. This gives your chosen users access to an issue’s full context in the model, including all details, such as due date, person assigned, comments and much more. No expensive authoring software required.
