Webinar: Additional Information:

UNIFI’s newly released features ensure you’ll have a content management solution to scale & manage your growing BIM library.

With designers clamoring for new content daily through UNIFI, the size of your firm’s BIM content libraries will continue to rapidly grow. That’s a good thing! However, growing libraries can pose organizational challenges with existing and newer objects, especially as the quantity of objects potentially grows into the thousands. Through this growth, it becomes increasingly important that approved, high quality content is always at your fingertips.

This webinar will delve into how these new features, including Batch Tag Management, UI Improvements, Revit 2017 Support, and key infrastructure improvements will further support your team as you expand both your library and your content management strategy.

In addition, we will review our process for collecting customer feedback through our Ideas Portal and discuss how you can continue to help us make UNIFI the leading global Content Management Platform.
