Viewpoint Acquires BIM Collaboration Software Maker 4Projects
4Project’s product portfolio will become available in Viewpoint’s existing markets in the United States, Canada and Australia. The United Kingdom-based 4Projects has 61 employees who will join Viewpoint; it has more than 40,000 unique monthly users employing its software.
The acquisition provides the opportunity for Viewpoint’s products to reach across software architectures, including on-premise, multitenant cloud and mobile to enable delivery of the right functionality on the right platform, to optimize the end-user experience.
Diverse project stakeholders and geographically dispersed construction team members can use 4Projects’ cloud-based product to access project-related information, such as the ability to manage, distribute, mark up and audit drawings, submittals and other construction and pre-construction documents.
"I believe bringing 4Projects’ products and their employees under the Viewpoint umbrella completes a large piece of the software puzzle facing contractors and their project stakeholders today," said Jay Haladay, Viewpoint's CEO. "Viewpoint has taken a holistic approach to providing efficiencies to solve the challenges of the global construction industry. We ... will be focused on delivering game-changing technology solutions to ensure that our customers can take full advantage of their rising backlogs or order book."
Portland, Ore.-based Viewpoint was named Oregon’s Best Software Company 2012 by TechAmerica.
