US: Procore Technologies, a leading provider of cloud-based applications for construction, today announced the acquisition of BIManywhere, a visual BIM collaboration platform for construction and facilities management. Based in Oakland, CA, BIManywhere was co-founded in 2012 by Peter Wu and Winson Chu.
Through an optimized mobile app and web application, the BIManywhere platform offers an intuitive 3D viewing engine that streamlines communication across project teams, giving everyone access to valuable BIM information.
“Procore and BIManywhere share a common goal to provide seamless access to information for everyone who needs it on the jobsite,” said Tooey Courtemanche, founder and CEO, Procore. “What we’re seeing with most large construction projects utilizing BIM today is that the model plays an enormous role in the construction process by providing a central location for critical project information. We’re excited for the opportunity the BIManywhere product and team brings to Procore users and the wider construction community.”
“Joining Procore is an exciting milestone for our company and the work we’ve already done in the BIM space. We’re all looking forward to working with the Procore R&D team to help further the impact of BIM within the construction industry and create greater access to information,” said BIManywhere co-founder, Peter Wu.
Both co-founders and all BIManywhere employees will join Procore working on the R&D team.
