The number of individual entries in Dode Data & Analytics ’ Sweets database of building product has just surpassed the 100,000 threshold, while the launch of a related app now makes this information accessible during design workflows.
According to Mike Petrullo, CEO of Dode Data & Analytics , the accumulation of more than 100,000 product entries follows more than 100 years of operation by Sweets, making the database the most comprehensive resource of its kind for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industries.
“Surpassing the 100,000-product threshold, and having 96 percent of Architectural Record’s top 300 design firms registered, is proof that Sweets is fulfilling its promise.”
Sweets currently has a registered user base of more than 300,000, enabling it to provide the latest product metadata for key brands, including Allegion, Armstrong, CertainTeed, Nystrom and Sloan.
In addition to containing a wide range of product entries, the interactive database also provides detailed information for each product’s BIM content, CAD details, catalogs, installation guides, specifications and warranties.
In order to facilitate access for members of the AEC sector, the Sweets database can be accessed online via a standard web browser, or during the design process itself via the Sweets apps for Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD.
