Mumbai, December 23 2013: 3D design and engineering solutions leader Autodesk has unveiled Autodesk360 --a new project centric avatar of its flagship collaboration product at the first ever Indian edition of its design industry forum, Autodesk University, held in Mumbai last week. The product was developed at its its India research and development facilities at Hyderabad. It is designed to help professional as well as amateur designers streamline their workflows, effectively collaborate, and quickly access and share their work anytime and from anywhere on a real time basis.
Autodesk 360 allows all project collaborators access from any device, including desktops, tablets and mobile phones.
New features include the ability to create project groups and invite team members to collaborate on projects and designs; share and organize all project data; collaborate on design data right on the web or your mobile device without any additional tools and perform deep search into design data and access critical design information.
Says Patrick Williams, Senior Vice-President, Autodesk, APAC: “It’s an indisputable fact that majority of our customers work in teams on extensive and sophisticated projects and we realize that till now there has been a considerable lack of infrastructure to support them. With the newAutodesk 360, we are positioning the project in the center of the workflow, bringing together people, data, and activities in an unprecedented and innovative way that works for all personas in the project.”
Adds Pradeep Nair, Managing Director, Autodesk, India and SAARC:“India is among the top five users of Autodesk consumer products in the cloud through mobile and smart devices. The role of India research and development effort in the development of Autodesk 360 is a reiteration of the role and importance of this country in the growth of Autodesk globally. The Cloud is a strategic priority for Autodesk and we recently introduced a cloud-based rental model for pay-as-you-go access to our technology.”
