BIMList Server – Enterprise Revit Content Management

From the CAD Technology Center website...

BIMList Server provides the ability to connect multiple users to the same BIMList database. BIMList Server will handle distributing database updates to each connected user – including those in remote offices – supercharging BIMList into a true enterprise content management solution.

The Pain Point

The lack of a central content management solution leaves many firms struggling to organize their content in a folder structure. Folder structures are inherently inefficient for accessing family files, as most of the meaningful data about a family is not accessible outside of Revit.

Key Features

Share the Data: BIMList Server allows efficient sharing databases between multiple users, even when those users are not in the same office.

License the Server: User machines have the tendency to be less stable than servers. With BIMList server, only the server is licensed, not the end user machines. Whether your users have multiple machines, receive new hardware or lose access to their machine due to a virus or hardware failure, the BIMList Client software will just work, no need to register or connect to a license server.

Simple Search: When a search is executed the list of families and their types will be filtered to show only the results matching the search criteria.

Lightweight: BIMList Server installs as a windows service and is not processor or resource intensive.

Accessible: BIMList Server can be utilized in multi-office firms as long as VPN or equivalent network infrastructure is in place. Family content is not stored in the database ensuring database, changes can be synced to users quickly without bogging down the network.
