BIMsmith®, the leading building product research platform, and AVAIL™, a leading digital content management platform for building professionals, today announced a new partnership to develop new integrations for users of both platforms.
The partnership, announced at Digital Built Week North America in Seattle, WA, involves new integrations between BIMsmith and AVAIL that will facilitate easier transition between the two platforms that are each used in separate phases of the design process. AVAIL users will benefit from direct access within the AVAIL interface to manufacturer BIM content and technical documents found on BIMsmith. BIMsmith users will likewise find the BIMsmith platform equipped with new functionality to allow them to more easily save and share BIM content to their AVAIL accounts.
“BIMsmith and AVAIL are natural partners,” said Randall Stevens, CEO of AVAIL. “Each platform occupies adjacent portions of the design lifecycle, so building a bridge between the two of them only adds value to both the platforms and the users.”
“AVAIL and BIMsmith both operate with the same principles of efficiency and time savings,” said Benjamin Glunz, CEO of BIMsmith. “By forming direct connections between both platforms, this partnership will enable designers to save even more time and effort in their daily workflow.”
