Revgen.tool, Innovative Solution From Cove.tool, Designed for Building Product Manufacturers

cove.tool | January 16, 2023

In a recent announcement, leading architectural design and construction solutions provider, cove.tool launched a cloud-based software, revgen.tool, designed to make it simple for building product manufacturers to attract qualified leads, effectively market their products, and drive revenue. This unique, industry-first solution allows manufacturers to build relationships with engineering, architecture and construction (AEC) professionals with verified advanced building performance engines. This helps manufacturers make informed product decisions earlier in a project’s lifecycle. Product performance within a project can be highlighted via the revgen.tool by manufacturers, and market their products for specific needs. Harnessing advanced analytics, the software sifts through thousands of building designs within architecture 3D models, which also includes BIM, to assist teams in identifying the best match for their products. This allows building product manufacturers to connect with the right engineers and architects and strengthen relationships. AEC teams can access real-time data to identify new products, which in turn helps them save time and resources. As a trusted third-party partner shares the data, it is easier for manufacturers to build trust and establish relationships with AEC professionals by sharing accurate data for projects and products. Patrick Chopson, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at cove.tool, “Driven by the urgent need to rapidly reduce carbon emissions and take climate action, there are political, economic, regulatory, and climate-driven macros on a global scale driving a massive shift in the design and construction of buildings. To help meet the targets before 2030, it is essential for manufacturers to partner with architects and engineers.” He further added, “With revgen.tool, this is finally possible. Manufacturers and design teams can now better align on what products may best fit with real-time, project-specific performance analysis. Newer, high-performance products can be highlighted, encouraging adoption that helps create more comfortable, efficient, and sustainable buildings. Our system enables manufacturers and design teams to forge stronger, more successful relationships based on data.” (Source-Businesswire) About cove.tool Cove.tool platform helps with the entire building lifecycle, from analysis to design and construction. Their point-based solutions link to build a connected eco-system that enables teams to collaborate on project data, resulting in more cost-effective decisions.
