Simpson Strong-Tie Brings Remote Collaboration Solutions for Job Starts and Options Management to 2020 Autodesk University

Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, is bringing to the 2020 Autodesk University and Conference a suite of software innovations designed to facilitate remote collaboration on job starts, options management, and product specification. The conference takes place this week Tuesday through Friday, November 17–20.

A first-of-its-kind global digital event, the 2020 Autodesk University and Conference is expected to bring together more than 60,000 innovators, designers, engineers, and builders to explore new ways of imagining, designing, and constructing the built environment.

Simpson Strong-Tie will have four live-demo webcasts as part of this year’s conference, focusing on LotSpec Remote, LotSpec for AutoCAD Architecture, LotSpec for Revit, our new options management plugin and what it accomplishes in different design environments. Simpson Strong-Tie will also be showcasing its Drawing Finder Plugin for AutoCAD that enables specifiers to insert up-to-date Simpson products directly into their AutoCAD drawings.

“We’re pleased for the opportunity to bring our ideas and innovations to share with the global audience of architects, engineers, and designers at Autodesk University,” says Simpson Strong-Tie Director of Customer-Facing Software Tim Beckman. “Our solutions were designed for scalability and remote collaboration, and we’re excited to see how they can drive performance as business opportunities and processes shift in these changing times.”

Autodesk University attendees who are interested in attending any of the Simpson Strong-Tie demo presentations can join live webcasts according to the following schedule:
