BIMobject® Hercules is a cloud solution for large companies to develop, organise, structure, standardise and manage their own BIM objects, and also publish and syndicate these in a controlled way to project groups anywhere in the world.
Hercules provides a cloud-based content management solution to support digital construction. It is intended for contracting, construction, consultancy and architecture companies to manage and control their BIM content in a cloud-based environment, allowing thousands of users to share the same BIM content.
Hercules has been developed as a platform and is an integrated part of the BIMobject Cloud. It enables companies to self-manage an extensive range of BIM content including documentation, CAD files and BIM objects, and to have a Single Source of Truth, version handling, structured data, support for languages and various classification systems.
As a cloud solution, Hercules is available in any location and on any device through a web browser or from within CAD/BIM packages through our BIMobject® Apps. It is an easy and proven way to publish objects and information to project-specific user groups. Manufacturer-specific objects already available in the Public Cloud can be linked into Project Sites by the project owner. It makes it easier and faster to give access to high-quality BIM objects controlled by the owner.
The platform is extremely scalable with various user roles and cloud apps. Project owners can upload their own proprietary corporate BIM objects to various Project Sites, then attach different property sets such as COBie. With user groups, the owner can deploy these into the internal organisation or to external design teams.
