ConTech Quotable Quotes:

"There’s been an explosion of innovation in the construction industry over the past couple years. There’s so much out there and there’s no one company that’s going to be able to pioneer all of that. And that’s in fact why… the Forge platform was created, to allow other companies to innovate, but still connect into the same project database so that customers are getting value all the way through." 

- Peter Billante, Autodesk BIM 360


The most important thing is to make it easy for our customers to get value. Our customers have a lot of photos and videos in Autodesk products and in other products. What we’ve seen is there’s a lot of construction technology out there that’s gathering this data, so it’s a very important part of our strategy to integrate with all the possible sources of data.

- Josh Kanner, Smartvid.io


It has to be easy. We know our customers, construction guys, don’t have a lot of time to spend on this stuff…So this concept of having the Forge App Store be able to plug in integrations [within 90 seconds] is really critical. 

- Peter Billante, Autodesk BIM 360


I have to tell you, I didn’t believe it could be that easy. But I did go up and try it out, and lo and behold, it really is that easy.

- Jeff Sample, The ConTech Crew
