BIMobject AB (“BIMobject”) announces today that it has signed an agreement with Autodesk regarding transfer of the operations of the Autodesk® Seek business to BIMobject. As part of this arrangement, BIMobject will assume the operational responsibility of providing Autodesk® Seek customers with high quality building information modeling (BIM) content services on the BIMobject Cloud.
Visitors to the Seek.autodesk.com web site will be re-directed to bimobject.com which will assume hosting and publishing of Seek customer content. Former Autodesk® Seek customers on the BIMobject Cloud platform will be provided package offerings equivalent to, if not more robust than, Autodesk® Seek Silver, Gold and Platinum packages. For example, Autodesk® Seek customers will now be able to access BIMobject Publishing, Product Sites, Digital Marketing Solutions and BIManalytics Core. And Autodesk® Seek Platinum customers will receive SpitFire 1 with the new business matching function on product pages in their package. Finally, BIMobject’s anticipated connection to Arcom One that connects to MasterSpec is also an important potential future benefit for customers transferred from Autodesk® Seek to the BIMobject Cloud.
All former Autodesk® Seek customers on BIMobject will also benefit from the BIMobject platform’s live administration, call home function including version control, pre-sales features, business intelligence, unlimited downloads and actionable leads.
BIMobject is an avid developer on the Autodesk® Forge platform, a groundbreaking tool for solutions like Mosquito, which offers an unbroken information flow from manufacturing to digital product marketing, and BIMscript & LENA.
BIMobject’s new release BIMsupply®, also developed using Autodesk® Forge platform technology, will be an additional future option for building product manufacturers. With BIMsupply, customers can capture new business opportunities with increased communication with designers, engineers and specifiers direct from the BIM models and project information.
BIMobject remains committed to Autodesk® technology and will continue to develop state of art content using Autodesk® Revit and Autodesk® AutoCAD, to support Autodesk Fusion 360 with BIMscript & LENA and to further develop the BIMobject Cloud and BIMsupply using the Autodesk® Forge platform.
The new arrangement with Autodesk also ends the Autodesk® Seek reseller agreement signed between Autodesk, Inc. and BIMobject Inc. in May 2016.
“It is an honor for us to take over the Seek business from Autodesk. We are committed to the BIM content business and will do our best in giving both manufacturers and Autodesk users the best possible customer experience and business value. Our commitment to Autodesk technology and solutions is stronger than ever with our future solutions based on Autodesk Forge and Fusion 360. Finally we thank Autodesk and its management for this opportunity, said Stefan Larsson, CEO and founder of BIMobject”
“BIMobject is one of the most active developers on the Autodesk Forge platform, so they were a natural choice for our Seek customers. We are confident that through this agreement and continued collaboration with BIMobject, building product manufacturers and designers will continue to have a BIM content platform that solves the challenges of today and tomorrow,” said Scott Reese, Autodesk vice president of cloud products.
