    The buzz around AI, VR, and Digital Twins in manufacturing can be overwhelming. In reality, these technologies can add real value to your firm. Even though 73% of manufacturers believe digital technologies will increase ROI, more than half have yet to implement them. Autodesk Foundation and Microdesk Co-Innovation Lab partnered with Pallet Shelter, a rapidly growing startup with a mission to combat homelessness, workforce development and promote sustainable communities. Through this collaboration, Pallet Shelter is strengthening channels of communication & means of storing and sharing data by implementing solutions from the Autodesk Ecosystem. With centrally accessible documentation and built-in business procedures, unifying the firm on a Common Data Environment (CDE) gives key stakeholders insight into the design process. This infrastructure supports the company's rapid and long-term expansion.
