Central data management as common denominator: BIMsystems and Contentserv enter into partnership

Contentserv, the leading provider of Product Information Management (PIM) solutions, and BIMsystems, the expert for BIM data management, are now working together to create a "single source of truth" for data. A central point of access to data for all parties involved and intelligent interfaces are intended to make the management and maintenance of data more efficient in the long term, both within the company and externally for BIM, for example. The partnership-based collaboration will open up forward-looking opportunities for digitized construction planning for component manufacturers and planners.

The digital transformation has long been in full swing! Many companies have already taken the first steps. In the process, the construction industry is increasingly under pressure to adapt to the new work requirements of the market and jump on the bandwagon of digitalization.An exemplary development that digitally influences construction planning is Building Information Modeling (short: BIM). All parties involved in the construction project face the challenge of digitizing their construction processes. Due to the infinite product data and their different data statuses, it is up to the manufacturers and dealers to restructure and organize data centrally with increasing digitization and networking.

Contentserv und BIMsystems möchten nachhaltige Synergien aus PIM und BIM schaffen

Together Contentserv and BIMsystems are disrupting the construction industry in a positive sense! With Contentserv's PIM solution, manufacturers can efficiently maintain their product information in a central location and make the data smoothly available to the intelligent BIM solution from BIMsystems for construction participants via interfaces.

BIM enables optimized planning, realization and management of construction projects with the help of software solutions. Relevant product data for construction planning and building management are made available and networked with each other in a central data model. This digitized organization places demands on the structure, content and availability of product data. In order to enable high quality, transparency and homogenization of product data, digitalized and well thought-out product data management is required.

Component manufacturers maintain their product information in a PIM system. Using the interface to the BIM solution linya from BIMsystems, they generate BIM-capable data. Through the PIM system, product-related information is stored media-neutrally and centrally in a database, so that it can be entered only once, enriched and output multiple times in a wide variety of channels. This means that the data is stored centrally, always up-to-date and complete in one place, the "single source of truth". With BIMsystems solutions, they create a one-time BIM connection and the BIM content is automatically updated. The result: digitized storage of construction information in high quality using the BIM planning method!

Holistic approach and innovation as components of the recipe for success

By connecting both systems from BIMsystems and Contentserv, manufacturers automatically learn in their BIM solution how the BIM content they provide is being used. "Together, BIMsystems and Contentserv are creating an ideal product management and planning experience for a digital future of the construction industry for manufacturers under maximum transparency," says Gregor Müller, CEO BIMsystems. In partnership, they are working on an all-round carefree package for digitized product data management!
