Bentley new Mobile Apps for ProjectWise
Mobile Apps for ProjectWise
Bentley Mobile Apps will soon provide 'Cloud' access to ProjectWise content to iPad and other devices.
The iPad apps demonstrated at Be Together will be available by August (through the Apple App Store, a Passport holder will be able to download ProjectWise Explorer for the iPad and Bentley Navigator for the iPad) bringing users, respectively, collaboration and review and markup, now anywhere.
Project Collaboration, Now Anywhere ProjectWise Explorer enables users to work in collaborative workflows, providing managed, synchronized, and secure access to project content such as i-models (containers for open infrastructure information exchange), Microsoft Office documents, PDFs, images, and movies.
With the new iPad apps, users can have these capabilities anywhere.
Furthermore, any browser-based user of Windows 7 tablets and laptops can access ProjectWise functionality using ProjectWise Web Parts and use Bentley Navigator, available anywhere.
ProjectWise Web Parts can be incorporated into any website and integrate with Microsoft SharePoint.
This capability is supported on all the common browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Chrome, and doesn't require flash.
In the near future, Bentley plans to introduce i-model renditions and apps for other mobile devices, such as the Android and Playbook.
