Global PIM vendor Akeneo GmbH and information management expert BIMsystems are working together to expand joint interfaces. Customers should thus be able to realize a central source of information for their product data. The integration of PIM into the BIM system creates an efficient workflow for manufacturers. In addition, the cooperation between Akeneo and BIMsystems offers a further expansion stage in the digital development of sustainable information management as well as new services.

BIMsystems and Akeneo connect the fields of BIM and PIM even more strongly with each other - for efficient information management.
The construction industry is under pressure to adapt to the new work requirements of the market. This is because digital construction is moving integrated work to center stage. Building Information Modeling (BIM for short) is changing and shaping digital construction! But this brings certain challenges for the players in the construction industry. They have to restructure and centrally organize the endless product data with increasing digitalization and networking. Central and digital management of product data is still a challenge for many manufacturers. Akeneo's PIM system provides digital solutions for manufacturers. And the BIM system can build on these solutions.
With the BIM system by BIMsystems - a cloud-based software for intelligent information management - the BIM content is created and managed centrally and efficiently. BIMsystems creates sustainable synergies from BIM and PIM (product information management) with its partnership with Akeneo GmbH and the interface to their PIM system. Manufacturers thus maintain their product information efficiently in one central location - in the PIM system. With the BIM/PIM interface, the data is then made available to BIMsystems' intelligent BIM solution for construction participants as BIM content.
Akeneo is a global leader in Product Experience Management (PXM) and Product Information Management (PIM) solutions that help manufacturers and retailers deliver a unified and consistent customer experience across all touchpoints. As a specialist in digital product data, buying processes and the customer journey, Akeneo sees BIMsystems as a suitable development partner for the expansion of further information and data management solutions.
What are the opportunities of the cooperation between BIMsystems and Akeneo?
The BIM system enables optimized planning, realization and management of construction projects with the help of software solutions. The digitized organization places considerable demands on the structure, content and availability of product data. In order to enable high quality, transparency as well as homogenization of product data, a digitalized product management is required.
The PIM system helps construction stakeholders to efficiently process large volumes of complex product information. Product information distributed across multiple systems and sources costs valuable time and increases the risk of errors. With PIM, construction players have more time for their core tasks. This is because the quality and consistency of the data is guaranteed across all systems. Time-consuming searching for information and managing different systems is a thing of the past.
With the synergies from BIM and PIM, processes are facilitated by creating streamlined and more efficient workflows for the construction industry. In addition, better collaboration including shorter planning and construction times with all stakeholders is ensured. The global company's PIM system integrates seamlessly into existing IT landscapes and connects all data sources. All data sources are bundled in one place. Quite simply.
The result of BIM and PIM: Construction actors are always up to date with all their product data and efficiently gain complete control over information. Internal processes of construction stakeholders are streamlined and new ways of managing product information emerge.
