Throwing BIM pearls before...
Yesterday’s post was too specific yet cryptic.
That’s the feedback. Well, let me clear the message I hid so well (badly) only few may have got:
Some BIM products’ sellers should be allowed to set an entry test for their users before they were offered to buy them.
A minimum level of BIM IQ – a threshold of understanding of the approach, below what the clever software was not an option to purchase.
Maybe. Supply and demand are strong drivers of markets. Limited distribution of a BIM-toolset to only those that use it properly could ultimately turn into a wise decision for a developer.
It is not unusual for educational institutions to select whom they would take on as clients.
Could this not be applicable to BIM suppliers?
Does not tend to be, unfortunately.
The reason I did not spell this thought clearly out yesterday was partially because it was about Vico, and I am unsure of its current abilities, stability, robustness etc...
So, I could not suggest that they take up such selective marketing as to test their prospects before they offer-up for purchase.
But then, little old me, I’m happy to say that I have my own threshold I carefully maintain when I choose for whom I will work for.
Sadly, this had not always been the case and may change too.
