ACCA-WiseBIM: AI and machine learning in BIM processes
WiseBIM joins up with ACCA to deliver artificial intelligence solutions in the world of openBIM®
12 December 2022: Guido Cianciulli, ACCA software’s founder, Tristan Garcia and Frédéric Suard, co-founders of WiseBIM, have recently announced the entrance of WiseBIM in the ACCA group in advance of a significant equity investment by ACCA software in WiseBIM alongside a shared strategic development plan.
ACCA software is one of the leading BIM software companies. Fully committed in the development of open standard based software and services and a fully supported openBIM® set of workflows and processes. ACCA software is currently market leader in Italy and is growing strongly also at an international market level.
WiseBIM is a French company specializing in artificial intelligence and deep learning for BIM. Among its developments are unique and innovative technologies to automatically generate BIM models from existing 2D drawings or images.
ACCA and WiseBIM, with their easy-to-use solutions, encourage all types of building professionals to switch to BIM.
Both European companies share the same missions, visions and a strong attitude towards innovation focussing on data management with particular emphasis on the use of open formats and openBIM® in order to provide interoperable solutions for all stakeholders involved in BIM.
WiseBIM contributes to ACCA’s business ecosystem with a strategic know-how in artificial intelligence and a qualified presence in France. At the same time, ACCA software will be providing WiseBIM with in-depth knowledge and expertise of BIM processes and a wide range of solutions to support the digitization of all types of buildings.
Upcoming developments will be strongly focussed on various strategic actions including:
- application of artificial intelligence in the management of BIM models and processes to simplify and support information exchanges, particularly in openBIM® formats;
- building up a more significant presence of ACCA software technologies across the French territory in order to support products, services and customized developments for larger clients;
- conduct R&D projects developing innovative technologies based on artificial intelligence;
- a joint contribution in the further development of openBIM® and transitioning from BIM to openBIM® methodologies at a global level.
This alliance is based on the common vision to provide AECO professionals with easy-to-use, online, openBIM® and cost-effective solutions.
Together, ACCA software and WiseBIM will mark the beginning of a new era for architecture, engineering, construction, operation and maintenance.
“This partnership is a real opportunity for WiseBIM to grow alongside a leading software company that shares our values. I am confident that together we will continue to expand the use of BIM at a much larger scale.“.
Tristan GARCIA, WiseBIM CEO
“I am convinced that artificial intelligence and machine learning applied to BIM models and processes significantly increase the value that the AECO sector can gain from the ongoing digital revolution. WiseBIM’s entry into the ACCA group immediately allows the implementation of new solutions to facilitate the digital transition of the building sector and to develop products and services adapted to the major changes that await us in the near future”
