Based in Atlanta GA, USA, Global Product Data (GPD) operates one of the largest
Building Information Modeling focused manufacturer directories in the USA,
called THESource. It collates manufacturer product data from various sources and
communicates it to subscribers through GPDTools, an Autodesk Revit add-in.
GPDTools-users can search, select and annotate building product data directly
into generic BIM content in their projects.

BIMobject® is the leader in developing high quality, highly parametric and smart
3D-CAD content and offers a complete cloud solution for manufacturers with
development, integration, publishing and re-distribution of BIM objects -
digital products - as well as pre-sales Analytics and Private Cloud services.

The re-distribution is a very important part of today's digital marketing
strategy. As a company owning a brand and digital content you want to see it
distributed and at the same time you want to be in control and always know that
the Architect or designer can download the content and data from one single
reliable source. Furthermore, maintenance of product data is a big challenge for
the whole building industry, trying to keep all supplier information up to date
with correct and accurate data is an ongoing challenge.

With these challenges in mind, this agreement was signed between GPD and
BIMobject® to ensure an optimal solution. It will give manufacturers of the
BIMobject® Portal access to a large number of additional BIM users in the US,
without any extra work from the manufacturer's site. All re-distribution is
based on the fact that the BIM object and product data is one single source and
in sync between both systems.

"A key benefit for GPD users is the immediate access to the BIM objects and
product data from the cloud based system of BIMobject® from both THESource
product library and GPDTools ProductTAG", says Mike Collins, President of GPD.

"This is an important step for us to get closer to the US market and we look
forward to working together with the team from Global Product Data", says Stefan
Larsson, CEO of BIMobject AB.

This agreement will allow both companies to leverage their respective technical
resources to improve and enhance not only the BIMobject® Portal with new
innovative product developments and adjustments that will be applied to US
standards and classifications, but also extend the reach of GPD's ProductTAG
tool to the BIM community. Both companies will assist each other in pre-sales
and marketing activities for the BIM object solutions offered to manufacturers.
