dRofus Web – Changing the way you access data in the AEC industry
You now have the ability to view and edit your dRofus project data on any web browser and on any mobile device using dRofus Web. Do you remember a time when you were on site or on the road and needed to access or edit a vital piece of information and couldn’t? Now you can search, view and edit your dRofus project data on any mobile device, at no additional cost and with no download required.
Let’s take a deeper dive…
Building owners need dRofus Web
dRofus Web has been proven useful to project owners as it gives them access to information that really matters. Through the intuitive platform it is easy to gain a high-level overview of a project. For example, if you organize groups in dRofus, you can visualize floor plans in the IFC viewer. If you have a group for floor types with a colour map, in the 3d viewer you will see how they are placed in the project. The building owner has the chance to spot an incorrect entry and make a correction. When the database is synchronized to ArchiCAD, Revit or any BIM authoring tool it will obtain the correct values.
Edit data at any time
A major breakthrough is the ability to edit data on your browser. You’re able to make quick edits and minor changes when you may need them most. This is incredibly useful for when you need to update the database and don't have a desktop nearby.
‘On-the-go’ collaboration with team members and key stakeholders
Collaboration is key in the modern AEC landscape and with dRofus Web you have ability to easily search and share links to specific sections in the database. For example, if an architect is looking to find information on an air handling unit, it is simply a quick search, click to copy the link to your clipboard and share with a team member or contractor.
dRofus Web is Free
