Leaders in digital marketing solutions, Thomas Enterprise and BIMobject partner in North America to help mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) manufacturers become BIM-ready.
Thomas comes with over 110 years of history helping manufacturers broaden their audience and deliver their product details to drive leads, specifications and ultimately orders. The partners bring technologies and services designed to meet the complex needs of engineers, fabricators and contractors.
"MEP product manufacturers face unique challenges over their architectural counterparts in becoming BIM-ready", says David Bandi, Director of AEC/BIM Solutions at Thomas. "Products are often highly configurable with detailed performance characteristics and connections. BIM users in MEP need a variety of file formats and a deeper set of details to commit products to their projects."
The joint offering from Thomas and BIMobject gives manufacturers the ability to provide multiple formats of BIM data while accessing a growing audience of users through the BIMobject portal with over 100,000 registered users. Most importantly, manufacturers gain visibility and market insight through a powerful analytics dashboard and CRM integration.
"We are excited about this new partnership with Thomas. We are enhancing the digital customer experience for all users in design, fabrication, construction and even facilities management which helps MEP manufacturers drive more business from BIM," says Alan Akman, President of BIMobject Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of BIMobject AB. "Our solutions can increase a manufacturer's ROI through extended reach and an ability to capture revenue opportunities from BIM projects."
Thomas will be a full business partner with BIMobject Inc. in the North American marketplace and will sell BIMobject solutions, including web publishing services and analytics, all integrated to Thomas' proven configuration and multi-format CAD & BIM content platform.
