Bentley EADOC: Cloud-Based Construction Management

After the AEC dotcom boom and bust debacle in the late 1990s to early 2000s, the last few years have seen a remarkable resurgence in the growing number of cloud-based solutions for different aspects of design and construction. One cloud-based solution that has remained largely out of the spotlight until now is EADOC, a collaborative construction management application that was just acquired by Bentley a few months ago. Not only does EADOC include construction management functionality that Bentley’s flagship project management and collaboration application, ProjectWise, does not have, it also integrates this functionality with project financials and cost capabilities, making it very unique in comparison to other construction management solutions as well. This review takes a closer look at EADOC to explore how these two sets of capabilities are integrated.
