The inability of different software solutions to operate and interact with one another has long been a source of frustration for the construction industry. With the increasing adoption of mobile jobsite and BIM technologies, it is becoming even more important for data to flow between applications in order for users to capture value from them.
That’s why StratusVue has joined two separate initiatives, the agcXML and Construction Open Software Alliance (COSA), both of which are actively working to create and open standards for the benefit of the entire industry.
“We understand the importance of this issue for the industry as a whole, which is why we’re putting our full support behind both of these efforts,” said John Goecke, President and COO of StratusVue. “We believe in the mission of the agcXML and its efforts to develop standards for vendors to follow, as well as the COSA community’s belief that open standards will lead to improved application integration for users. In our minds, both are worthy and complementary initiatives and we’re excited to be an active part of them.”
Led by the Association of General Contractors (AGC), the agcXML’s mission is defined as such:
“With participation and sponsorship from a constituency of AGC members, software developers, the construction industry, and related associations, the agcXML mission is to develop and maintain open source interoperability standards for the commercial construction industry.”
As a grassroots effort from the software industry itself, COSA is described as such:
“The Construction Open Software Alliance is a community of software developers and providers who support an open standard in construction software applications, in order to provide the most useful, integrated solutions to the end-user.“
