What is Autodesk Inventor R2?

November 25, 2015 By April Raque Leave a comment

For months, all anyone has talked about is R2... And for months, I've had no idea what they meant by R2. Was it a new droid in the upcoming version of Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Is it the new R2D2?

How Do You Collaborate?

August 21, 2015 By April Raque Leave a comment

Working together to perform tasks to achieve an end goal is just the beginning of collaboration. Where you begin and what tools you use in the process can define the results.

Technology can help the collaboration process between teams across the city, state, nation and world. Having offices and team members across the U.S. has lead Advanced Solutions to seek out the most cutting-edge technology for collaboration across all channels.

Visual Collaboration for Manufacturers

August 04, 2015 By April Raque Leave a comment

The Manufacturing industry has seen a rise in competition, putting pressure on companies to find new ways to effectively communicate with skilled laborers and engineers located all over the world. Analyzing and visualizing complex data, while getting teams connected and collaborating at all stages of a project, is essential to the effectiveness of the development cycle.

Meet the Woman: Jordan Holt joins the North Carolina AEC Team

March 16, 2015 By April Raque Leave a comment


Jordan Holt
ASI Business Development Manager
North Carolina

For the past four years, Jordan has worked with the North Carolina Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). She worked closely with 2,100 Architect members, across the state, as well as partnering very closely with other organizations, such as: Carolinas AGC, PENC, and ACEC. She gained insight and experience through her involvement with the chapter’s activities, other industry events, and the many contacts she gained, along the way. Jordan has a background in commercial photography, which, given the many parallels, helps her relate to her Architecture clients. Her skills and experience in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry, stem directly from working alongside industry professionals who've educated her about the various aspects of their day to day issues and concerns.

Jordan sees the biggest hurdle, within the AEC, being effective communication. As projects become larger and more defined, with different working parts, involving several companies and contractors, the communication can become convoluted and cause delays, and in some cases, additional costs. She knows it has become imperative to ensure information is accurate throughout the project life and readily available to all parties involved, even after the project is complete.
