Partnership to help provide building and construction firms with ‘improved project control using BIM data’
Synchro Software has joined Viewpoint’s Market Partner Program to offer a solution that unites the latest BIM model data with Construction Project Management (CPM) scheduling and 4D visual project management capabilities.
Using BIM models, Synchro Software can be used to view, validate and verify the sequence of activities that need to happen during project execution. When used in conjunction with Viewpoint’s BIM Manager, which uses IFC-enabled Common Data Environments to deliver the most current view of project data, project activities are said to be easily identified and coordinated, providing a “dress rehearsal” of building the project before ground is even broken. Viewpoint claims this capability leads to greater quality control during project execution, and consistently provides improved productivity and cost and resource management.
“Viewpoint and Synchro’s solutions are naturally complementary and fulfil critical elements of the planning, design and construction workflows required for effective project completion,” stated Matt Harris, Viewpoint’s senior vice president of strategy and corporate business development. “Both Viewpoint and Synchro are active evangelists of OpenBIM standards-based applications which enable solution providers to collaboratively bring to market impactful software offerings for the building and construction industries.”
“The ability of our mutual customers to get immediate, reliable automated data tracking and status updates extends the benefits of BIM in construction project planning and management,” said Tom Dengenis, CEO of Synchro.
