ATLANTA, July 12, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — Applied Software®, a leading systems integrator in the AEC, construction and manufacturing industries, today unveiled eVolve™ Fabrication, a new fabrication software solution for electrical contractors.
Developed by electrical contractors for contractors, eVolve reduces waste by facilitating detail-level as-built drawing production, and by automating shop drawing sheet set creation with linked bills of material using a single click – no extra effort. eVolve also makes Just-in-Time delivery a reality for both the shop and the field, virtually eliminating the need for pre-stocking inventory.
"Most electrical contractors are on the lean journey for greater efficiency, but are struggling to see how requiring BIM adds value to their operations," said Richard Burroughs, president of Applied Software. "eVolve will allow our clients to fabricate faster at a lower rate and install faster, as well."
"With eVolve Fabrication, we tracked and documented a reduction in rework from 50 percent down to 2 percent as we moved fabrication from the field into the pre-fabrication shop, where safety issues and installation inefficiencies were mitigated simply by fabricating in a fully controlled environment," said Aaron Thompson, director of Operations at Corbins Electric, based in Phoenix, Arizona.
eVolve's easy-to-use interface uniquely enables AutoCAD® users to migrate to Autodesk® Revit® while maintaining their proficiency, thus allowing contractors to confidently make the transition. eVolve is the perfect complement to Applied Software's portfolio of electrical design and fabrication products, tailored specifically for electrical designers and contractors. The combination of these products offers a complete workflow from design to fabrication. For more information, go to asti.com/eVolve.
