FPT Software | August 04, 2021
FPT Software has recently become a third-party developer of Solibri, the Finland-based market leader in quality assurance and quality control for digital construction. Vietnam’s leading IT firm aims to support more enterprises in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry with customized solutions to solve their specific issues regarding quality assurance and control.
FPT Software is the first company in the Asia-Pacific region to join Solibri’s third-party developer network. The two sides plan to address specific development needs stemming from business sensitive cases, local building requirements and regulations. Granted with Solibri’s Not for Re-sale license, FPT Software can also help businesses in the AEC industry save annual license costs for deploying Solibri Office. Solibri Office is a quality assurance software solution that validates the integrity, quality and physical safety of architectural designs based on Building Information Modelling (BIM), thereby enhancing the productivity and cost-effectiveness of digital construction processes.
To be qualified as a third-party developer, FPT Software had to undergo a two-month training and examination process on Solibri’s solution and construction expertise. With its proven expertise in digital technologies and in-depth domain knowledge, the Vietnamese IT firm has also actively interacted and proposed suggestions to improve the model checking solution on Solibri’s forum.
“We are proud to join Solibri’s efforts in accelerating the adoption of digital technologies in architecture, engineering and construction companies. This is a testament to our capability and also aligns well with our strategy to expand the service portfolio to serve a wider range of businesses”, said Nguyen Duc Kinh, FPT Software’s Senior Vice President, Head of Automotive & Manufacturing.
“Growing the Solibri ecosystem with skilled development partners is necessary to be able to answer to the raising customer need of tailored and custom rules and functionality. FPT is already trusted by our key accounts and also has been working successfully on Solibri assignments in a common project.” Ville Kyytsönen, CEO, Solibri, Inc.
Earlier this year, FPT Software launched a joint venture with Japanese Smart Holdings, aiming to expedite the development of smart cities by focusing on the key industries, including manufacturing, automotive, and construction. The company sets to become a world-class digital transformation and IT services provider.
