...in response to..."Should we install Revit 2016 and upgrade our projects?
Given the performance improvements in 2015 and again with 2016...any team or firm that doesn't upgrade their projects is willingly poking themselves in the eye all day, every day. The very idea of working in 2014 (or worse 2013) after using 2015/16 makes me sad.
"But Steve, EyeTee doesn't like having to install the software every year, and gosh there has been so many updates this year."
Okay, what other software does your firm use every minute of every working hour of every week to generate income? EyeTee shouldn't be getting agitated about keeping software up to date for the people who generate the income of a company. Besides installing software and keeping it up to date is in the job description isn't it? "Um, I don't like answering phones. What? You're the receptionist!!!" It's a bit like objecting to servicing your car and you drive a limousine. You depend on it to make a living but don't want to take care of the means to an end?
If a project team won't upgrade the project...they don't get to whine about poor performance... If IT won't install it then they need to revisit their priorities. Are they too busy to increase the chances of everyone else being more productive?
