Bimforce develops software solutions that support and improve BIM processes, such as our BIM content generator VerteX, and our project data management platform Grids. Bimforce also develops custom solutions in the areas of IFC, Revit, Linked data and semantic databases.
VerteX and Utopis® Platform fit seamlessly together, so that your system information can not only be shown in specifications, but also in BIM. Directly in the software or from your website. You do not have to model yourself with VerteX and Utopis® Platform. Your product data is linked to, for example, Revit and ArchiCAD. This saves costs, but more importantly: you can independently ensure that the information remains up-to-date.

With S-Bestek, the first online specification writing software was introduced. Systhema was the first to respond to STABU Bouwbreed and is now working further on its software.

The open communication between the companies guarantees for the future a further integration between the mutual software packages.

ZeeBoer has been a member of the Dutch Association for Specification Writers (BNB) since its foundation in 2001. The BNB is an association, for both individuals and companies, who practice the specification in everyday building practice. Through membership, ZeeBoer endeavors to maintain a structural contact with the specification-writer market so that the wishes of the specification writer can be maximally taken into account in the development of new products. ZeeBoer considers the BNB to be the independent interest group for tenderers in the Netherlands.
Ketenstandaard (Dutch for chain standard) manages the Sales standard for transaction data, the ETIM classification for a generic product choices and the STABU specification system. ZeeBoer has its roots at STABU. Our predecessor Reindert de Boer came up with the manufacturer product specification (FPS) in the early 1980s. We still have a lot of contact with Ketenstandaard. Incidentally, we are also a bit of competitors, because Ketenstandaard not only monitors standards, but also exploits them commercially.
KOMO is the specialist in objectively determined quality of products, realization processes, services and people in residential, infrastructure, water and utility construction.

The KOMO® Foundation is still of great influence on quality assurance. CPR has not dismissed this. The KOMO specification service offers specification writers the right specifications for certified products. KOMO uses the neutral Open Specification Format (OSF). Many STABU specifications are written in the Cube Spexx program. Users can consult the KOMO catalog directly in that program.
