Kenesto Announces PDFBilt Connect Integration with Autodesk Construction Cloud to Boost Efficiencies for Construction Workflows

September 20, 2022 — Boston, MA:  Kenesto announced today the integration of Kenesto PDFBiltTM Connect with Autodesk Construction Cloud, a portfolio of software and services that combines advanced technology, a builders network and predictive insights for construction teams.

PDFBiltTM Connect allows contractors to import and export drawing sets with Kenesto’s PDFBilt application to split, link, mark up, slip-sheet, and share multi-sheet construction documents for use with Autodesk Build, Autodesk Docs, or BIM 360. Documents can be saved to Autodesk Construction Cloud applications as a bound set or in a directory of the component sheets. PDFBilt facilitates annotations, team markups and issue reports in a web-based environment, to use within Autodesk Construction Cloud. Other features include automatic table extraction from PDF documents to Microsoft Excel for log creation and real time register tracking.

“Users who are currently using multi-step (OCR, label, split, link) semi-manual workflows running on their local PCs and laptops, will find speed improvement and efficiencies through automatic processing in PDFBilt.  Security teams will sleep better knowing access to documents is both controlled and monitored.  Project leaders will benefit from all team members having access to a comprehensive record set,” said Kenesto CEO Mike Payne.

“Construction firms need a central repository for their project documents and data that connects them to the processes and workflows that drive their businesses,” said James Cook, director, partner integrations at Autodesk Construction Solutions. “Integrating the document tools of PDFBilt with Autodesk Construction Cloud further enhances the value and usefulness of the documents in key construction workflows.”

For more information about Kenesto’s PDFBilt Connect for Autodesk Construction Cloud, please visit kenesto.com/pdfbiltconnect or call +1 781 780 7400.

PDFBilt Connect for Autodesk Construction Cloud is also available in the Autodesk® App store.
