BIM software, also known as building information modeling software, is the method of adding and preserving data in a project from the start to its completion. The software comes equipped with a 3D model that consists of detailed data for each component. The software provides users with privilege of accessing data whenever required, and also allows them to integrate data with other designing software without any risk of errors.

360QUADRANTS COMPANY EVALUATION METHODOLOGY
best BIM Software Companies have been rated using the following methodology:
A highly experienced team of researchers and senior analysts conducts extensive research to generate a list of vendors.
An algorithm is used to collect inputs from key stakeholders—industry experts, buyers, vendors, and 360Quadrants analysts—based on criteria for Product Maturity and Company Maturity.
Criteria under Product Maturity include breadth and depth of product/service offering, product features and functionalities, product differentiation, and their impact on customer value.
Criteria under Company Maturity include geographical footprint, partner ecosystem, financial stability, and client coverage, or sector footprint.
Approximately 80+ in-depth parameters will be considered for research for the best BIM Software. These parameters will be updated every six months to ensure the latest developments are taken into consideration.
A weight is assigned to each stakeholder based on information gathered pertaining to the above criteria as well as inputs from stakeholders. These inputs follow the order of priority given below:
The inputs are analyzed, and a final rating is assigned to each vendor
After the finalization of ratings, each vendor is placed in the most relevant quadrant based on its score.
