Japanese AEC giant, Takenaka has collaborated with KUBUS to translate the entire BIMcollab ecosystem of BIM industry software to the Japanese language. This includes the popular BIMcollab Cloud and BIMcollab ZOOM, which are used by more than 90,000 BIM professionals worldwide.
Rising BIM in Japan
Japanese BIM professionals are growing rapidly as BIM becomes a more common practice in the Japanese AECO market. Now these BIM professionals have a top of the line issue management system with integrated model validation and requirement-sharing without having to contend with a language barrier issue.
“Our partnership with Takenaka marked the beginning of our dedicated focus on supporting BIM professionals in Japan with our solutions,” says Erik Pijnenburg, CEO BIMcollab. “After helping industry leaders in Europe and other parts of the world, we are honored to assist Takenaka and other Japanese firms on their BIM journey.” (see: Architosh, “Vixel and BIMcollab announce new partnership using Virtual Reality for a simplified collaboration for BIM-models,” 7 Dec 20)
Built for Takenaka
With BIM on the rise in Japan, Takenaka needed a custom made solution to meet their needs. In particular, they needed features added to BIMcollab that benefit enterprise-level customers. The partnership between KUBUS and Takenaka resulted in not just a translated version of the BIMcollab ecosystem of products but new features added via API integrations useful to Takenaka.
“Together with Takenaka, we aimed to create a perfect issue management solution for the Japanese design and build industry,” says Paul Deckers, BIMcollab Product Owner. “Most notably the addition of several new APIs have allowed Takenaka to integrate BIMcollab seamlessly within their own BIM environment.” The entire user-interface in BIMcollab is converted to the Japanese language so that Takenaka employees and partners can work seamlessly in the system using their native language.
