AutoCASE® was launched today in San Francisco by Impact Infrastructure at the Autodesk Gallery.
AutoCASE calculates the full triple bottom line of infrastructure projects by monetizing the associated financial, environmental, and social impacts.
AutoCASE is a cloud-based valuation tool that both automates and standardizes cost-benefit analysis for infrastructure projects. With the plug-in for a plug-in for Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® design software, your capability to develop business cases from within the design environment is greatly enhanced. You can confidently justify and garner support for greener projects and deliver far-reaching impacts for people, planet, and profits.
The first module of AutoCASE that focuses on stormwater management is now available worldwide in English only, with data to support projects in the United States. Enjoy a free trial until February 1, 2015 with subscription pricing thereafter. Register at autocase.wpengine.com
Transit, building and other infrastructure modules are to follow soon.
