January 14, 2015 by Ann Finlay

 Portland, Ore. – Jan. 14, 2015-Viewpoint Construction Software announced that Synchro Software, Ltd. has joined Viewpoint's Market Partner Program to offer building and construction markets a solution that unites the latest BIM model data with CPM scheduling and 4D visual project management capabilities. Using building information models, Synchro Software affords the entire delivery team the ability to see, validate and verify the sequence of activities that need to happen during project execution. When used in conjunction with Viewpoint's BIM Manager, which uses IFC enabled Common Data Environments to deliver the most current view of project data, project activities are easily identified and coordinated providing a "dress rehearsal" of building the project before ground is even broken. This capability leads to greater quality control during project execution, and consistently provides improved productivity and cost and resource management.

Both Viewpoint and Synchro Software work with OpenBIM standards; the benefits achieved by using the solutions together further demonstrates that reliable and comprehensive BIM workflows are being achieved using models from a variety of BIM technology platforms.

"Viewpoint and Synchro's solutions are naturally complementary and fulfill critical elements of the planning, design and construction workflows required for effective project completion," stated Matt Harris, Viewpoint's senior vice president of strategy and corporate business development. "Both Viewpoint and Synchro are active evangelists of OpenBIM standards-based applications which enable solution providers to collaboratively bring to market impactful software offerings for the building and construction industries. We are very happy to welcome Synchro as the newest member of Viewpoint's Market Partner Program."

"The ability of our mutual customers to get immediate, reliable automated data tracking and status updates extends the benefits of BIM in construction project planning and management. Through strategic alliances with industry leading firms such as Viewpoint, the combined ecosystem of Synchro Software and its partners bring best-in-class competencies in industry processes and technical domains," said Tom Dengenis, CEO of Synchro.
