Configit A/S and Cadac Group announced last week that they will be forming a strategic partnership that will bring a range of powerful configuration solutions to the construction industry. Configit A/S are the leading configuration lifecycle management company in the world, and Cadac Group is known for being a leading solution provider for creating, managing and sharing digital design information. The new partnership that has been formed by the two businesses is expected to leverage the value of configure-to-order workflows.
The CTO at Cadac Group, Paul Smeets has said that the company noticed a convergence of trends between the construction and manufacturing industries. In order to make the most of this convergence, the Group looked into the different ways that could be utilised and help their customers to leverage these efficiencies. After further exploration it was found that a partnership with a company that has the same corporate vision as well as the technical know-how for such a partnership would be beneficial. The only company that has both of these requirements is Configit.
Cadac Group specialises in Building Information Modeling, or BIM, and Digital Manufacturing. The company has managed to develop an integration for Configit’s configurator with Autodesk Revit and Autodesk Inventor, a solution has then been made accessible via the Cloud. This groundbreaking solution has been called Cadac Modules Suite and is already in use by Royal BAM Group, the largest construction company in the Netherlands. This solution will also be offered to Cadac Group’s 1,600 customers from November this year.
The new partnership that has been formed between Cadac Group and Configit is beneficial for both companies. It is important to Configit to use their technology with vision and adaptability, therefore the creation of this modular solution fits in with the business ethos. The Configuration Lifecycle Management by Configit will help their customers to get their products to market quicker as well as sell them in a more efficient way.
