transcosmos inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda; hereafter, transcosmos) and its subsidiary APPLIED TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD. (Headquarters: Osaka, Japan; President and CEO: Toshiro Funahashi; hereafter, Applied Technology) released a BIM*1 total service package, “to BIM”*2 for the Japanese market on September 20, 2017.
The “to BIM” is a BIM total service package which enables the two companies to offer their respective strengths effectively. Specifically, “to BIM” delivers transcosmos’s strengths in BPO services and talent development, coupled with the superior system development capabilities of Applied Technology by dividing the package into 5 categories, namely, “BIM Implementation Services”, “BIM Utilization Services”, “BPO Services”, “System Development” and “System Delivery”. transcosmos and Applied Technology support various companies, including ones that start the implementation of BIM and others that aim at driving its utilization.
Through offering “to BIM”, the companies promote the Japanese construction industry to make a digital transformation, whilst further improving clients’ productivity.
With its pilot programs already underway at several clients, transcosmos and Applied Technology aim at achieving sales of over 500 million yen in FY2018.
transcosmos and Applied Technology are pushing the concept, “Connected BIM”*3, which aims to connect the whole construction production processes with BIM at the center. There should be 100 different BIM solutions for 100 different companies. With this mindset, the companies will build “to BIM”, making a customized BIM for each client by combining their total power. “Which operations process should be changed by using BIM?” Fully considering the objective of utilizing BIM together with clients, transcosmos and Applied Technology offer custom-made BIM solutions for each client.
