AEC professionals enabled with new data management and collaboration cloud-based tools will be able to better deliver on a project’s vision, cost, and schedule with increased accuracy, fewer tradeoffs, and higher satisfaction for all stakeholders" says Arol Wolford, CEO, and founder of VIM.

OpenBOM™, a leading SaaS digital network-based global collaborative platform, and VIM, a leading provider of real-time visualization platform for AEC announce the partnership and formation of AECBOM to develop an online platform for the construction industry to help architects, engineers, and project managers to organize project information, manage product components, and purchase equipment and components from contractors and suppliers.

AEC value chain is disconnected. Engineers, Architects, Project Managers must communicate using a wide range of information coming from different places (general contractor, manufacturing reps and manufacturers, etc.). There is no place to manage holistic data about the projects to present all structured information about the product. There is no simple way to purchase equipment and communicate with manufacturers and manufacturer representatives.

AECBOM provides a SaaS data management and collaboration platform combined with a unique real-time visualization technology developed by VIM. A combined integration solution provided by AECBOM also includes out-of-the-box and ready to be used integrations with CAD and other design software.

“AECBOM is built on top of flexible OpenBOM™ platform providing a multi-tenant data management foundation, patented real-time collaboration and data sharing technology. AECBOM connected to multiple applications and services used by general contractors, architects, engineers, and trade contractors,” says Oleg Shilovitsky, CEO and co-founder of OpenBOM.

“Data is the foundation of the tremendous improvements AECBOM is going to bring to the construction industry. Now, with emerging technology, social awareness, and creativity, such situations present innovation opportunities, particularly those that enable tighter interdisciplinary collaboration that prevent compromise to environmental objectives. We feel that all AEC professionals enabled with these tools will be able to better deliver on a project’s vision, cost, and schedule with increased accuracy, fewer tradeoffs, and higher satisfaction for all stakeholders,” says Arol Wolford, CEO, and founder of VIM.
