New Online Support Service for Vertex BD Free Trial Users
Global construction has slowed during the COVID-19 pandemic, but that doesn’t mean design and planning prep has come to a standstill. Quite the opposite has happened; in the last six weeks, we’ve seen an increase in inquiries about Vertex BD — our automated Building Information Modeling (BIM) software for commercial and residential construction.

Why the influx in interest?
Many firms are using this time to research new technologies that could grow their business over the long term and, with its speed and accuracy capabilities, Vertex BD stands apart from other design software options. Plus, it’s streamlining communication and keeping everyone on the same page from start to finish. This is an invaluable benefit, as more and more people will be working remotely for the foreseeable future.
At Vertex, we see this time as an opportunity to bring the best customer service to our BD clients. Starting May 4, every individual who signs up for a free trial of the Vertex BD software will be able to join our new online community hosted by Slack.
Just sign up, and you’ll have complimentary access to:
- An online chat platform where you can ask questions and get answers from both Vertex BD experts and design professionals
- An easy way to connect with other users of the Vertex BD software to share challenges, success stories, virtual projects, and product advice
- Educational materials to help you learn the software from your remote location
Finding the best ways to support and educate our customers is always our top priority, but it’s especially important during this challenging time. By combining free access to our team of experts as well as other members of the industry, we hope to help you better prepare for the future of construction — whatever that future may look like.
To avoid mistakes that can both cost you time and blow your budget, construction firms are focusing more and more on impactful pre-construction practices. Before even breaking ground, meticulous plans are put into place to keep your project on track from start to finish.
With any type of construction, meeting — or missing — a deadline can make or break a project. This is especially true with an off-site build, where efficiency and accelerated timelines are touted as major benefits. These benefits are often the reason the building method is chosen over traditional construction in the first place.
The benefits of off-site construction are undeniable. From more efficient processes to quicker training and safer conditions, the inherent advantages of this unique building method speak for themselves. Still, much of the traditional construction industry has been slow to adopt off-site construction — even in situations where it would be ideal for a particular market.
