Software Vendors Team Up To Expand BIM’s Capabilities

Text size: A A

Two software vendors, CMiC and Vico Software, are forming a partnership to develop integration between their offerings for “enterprise resource planning” and building information modeling. The effort, if completed, would result in a framework for design and construction users of BIM tools to integrate BIM data with business functions, such as procurement and contract management, throughout the construction cycle between all operational departments of a firm, say the vendors. The goal is a product that will allow BIM information to flow seamlessly across an entire organization, not simply within an organization’s specific project. This would eliminate the need for re-entering data and reconciling data from multiple applications. Vico sells project-based estimating, budgeting, scheduling and change management tools, and CMiC sells enterprise-focused management and controls tools.
