TeamSystem Construction Project Management (CPM) available in the Cloud with Microsoft Azure
CPM, the management platform by TeamSystem Construction – leader in the AEC industry – is now available in Software as a Service (SaaS) mode on Azure, the Microsoft Public Cloud platform. A new, agile and intuitive approach that fully exploits the functions of CPM in the pursuit of interoperability in the BIM environment.
Founded on the consolidated experience accumulated by the STR brand, TeamSystem Construction is the new TeamSystem brand in the field of construction project management software.
CPM is the TeamSystem Construction management platform for generating quotations, managing project costs, planning and scheduling jobs and supporting works and site management.
From today, CPM operates in a new dimension: in fact, the platform is now available in the Cloud in Software as a Service mode on Microsoft Azure, the Microsoft public cloud platform that offers the IaaS, PaaS and SaaS models of cloud computing service.
This strategic choice will enable the most effective possible use of big data and the BIM approach in the planning, construction, management and maintenance processes with a view to the increasing digitalization of design, execution and management processes in a completely new way; this will facilitate maximum interoperability with the main 3D CAD packages through the adoption of the IFC standard, and will give all the benefits of an immediate web-based usability that maintains and fully exploits all the 4D and 5D functions of CPM. This is achieved by a cloud solution specifically designed for the construction industry, offering optimized performance for BIM modeling and project data management to support the work of professionals and companies.
This new cloud-based means of using CPM is part of a strategy promoted by TeamSystem Construction, which will shortly be enriched by new solutions. Announcing this is Cristiano Zanetti, General Manager of Vertical Business at TeamSystem: “the availability of Project Management on the Microsoft Azure platform is an important step in our Cloud strategy, which from next September will be featuring a new player: Estimating Cloud, a solution entirely conceived in the logic of Software as a Service which will offer its users Accounting and Estimation functions in the BIM environment. These will be available to use on the Web through any browser, with full interoperability with the most widely used three-dimensional CAD packages. All this will come with a totally new user experience based on an easy and intuitive approach. It is designed for all professionals who come into contact with Building Information Modeling and who need a simple but also complete and innovative solution“.
In its new Software as a Service user mode, Project Management will continue to offer users all the advantages that have made it the solution of choice among some of the most important players in the construction industry such as Pizzarotti, CMB, Metropolitana di Napoli and many others. At the same time, however, it is within the reach of organizations of all sizes, creating a new generation system that exploits the most advanced digitalization technologies and BIM methodology to manage all steps in the building process, from design to cost estimates, from job planning to procurement, from timing and cost control to the execution of works, all in a single digital ecosystem.
“Operating on the cloud means choosing flexibility and accessibility, two differentiating drivers that we are sure will contribute to the success of CPM, offering a competitive advantage to the clients of TeamSystem Construction. Thanks to Microsoft Azure, operators in the construction sector can leverage an advanced tool providing scalable business support and access their wealth of business data on the move, anywhere and at any time, as well as the applications needed to generate quotations, manage contracts, plan works and direct site activities. All with the assurance of interoperability and maximum security”, declared Mattia De Rosa, Cloud & Enterprise Business Group Lead at Microsoft Italia.
