2019 has been an extremely busy year so far at UNIFI Labs! We’ve been working hard on several major releases that represent significant steps forward towards our goal of facilitating common data environments for building lifecycle stakeholders. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have delivered the ability to Search By Parameter to our users a few months back. In addition, we recently released our Project Analytics and Content Management APIs, and are enjoying seeing how our customers leverage these offerings to build on and customize our platform.
Speaking of our amazing customers, one of the most frequent questions they ask us at events is, “How’s business?” We recognize that the growth of our platform is a critical factor in enabling fluid data collaboration for our customers, as each new organization on our platform represents another building lifecycle stakeholder whose BIM content can be seamlessly shared with their selected design partners through UNIFI.
With that in mind, I’d like to step out of character for a moment and rather than geek out on our tech, share a quick #humblebrag about three major growth milestones we’ve recently achieved which speak to the scalability of our platform:
•Over 300 organizations now leverage UNIFI to manage, structure and search across their BIM data. We’re storing over 17 million Revit files, and the ability to granularly index the parameter data associated with this magnitude of content has been no small feat! Our development team is dedicated to ensuring our platform scales seamlessly to support the ever-expanding libraries and datasets that our customers are managing to successfully deliver projects.
•We have over 10,000 monthly active users accessing the platform from around the world on a monthly basis. What does that mean in terms of ROI for our customers? Well, if the average designer searches for content just 5 times a week and saves 2 minutes over their legacy method of accessing content, that means our customers are saving over 1600 hours of wasted time per week!
•Amidst this rapid pace of growth, we’ve realized a 98% customer retention rate. This number is what gives our team the most pride, as it represents the results of our commitment to journeying with our customers. A new customer is exciting, but a renewal means the most to our team because it means a company didn’t just sign up for our platform – they successfully deployed to realize the full ROI of their investment in our platform and team.
In closing, a huge thank you to all of our customers. Whether you’ve been with us since day one or are just beginning to bring Better BIM ™ to your organization with UNIFI, we wouldn’t be here without you. You make everything we do worthwhile, and we sincerely appreciate you trusting us to build a better now and enable a better future for your organization.
