More on Autodesk's Vault Collaboration for A/E/C

I would think that reprographers, especially those who are offering - or those who are thinking about offering - “document management” software and services (such as ARC’s PlanWell Collaborate and ReproMAX’s cMAX) would be interested in knowing what Autodesk is doing in that same space.

That said, for those of you who are interested in knowing more about Autodesk’s recently released Autodesk “Vault Collaboration for AEC” products, the first document I think you should take a look at is the one called Top Ten Reasons to Add Vault Collaboration AEC to Your Workflow”, as this document is one that your A/E/C customers are being exposed to.

Here’s a link to that particular document:

Going a bit further, here’s what Autodesk says about its “Vault” products:
