Zutec announces that it is one of the first organizations to gain certification to the new BSI Kitemark for Building Information Modeling (BIM) software.
FREMONT, CA: Zutec, a construction software provider, has announced that it is one of the first organizations to gain certification to the new BSI Kitemark for Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. This Kitemark is a global standard for promoting BIM compliance, and the company earned it after undergoing rigorous, independent testing.
Zutec had to demonstrate that its software met high quality, data protection, and usability standards and assisted its clients in accomplishing BIM standardization with ISO 19650 compliance to protect the Kitemark. Zutec also had to highlight its data-security strategy, as the organization is ISO 27001 certified. This is the only international standard that specifies an information management system's conditions to show that a company has implemented best-practice information security procedures. Aside from that, the company had to show its customer-centricity by providing independent proof of client satisfaction.
Tom Boland, Global Head of Digitalisation at Zutec, says, "This new Kitemark is a significant moment for the construction industry. As digital rapidly becomes the norm, there is an increasing need for software tools that add real value to construction workflows. Zutec has been at the forefront of digital construction for over 20 years, so when an opportunity arose to prove just how good our software is, we were keen to achieve Kitemark certification. This mark of trust allows new and existing customers to be confident that Zutec will support them in their BIM journey, shows them that it is easy to use, and allows their teams to collaborate seamlessly on one platform."
He adds, "Our software supporting BIM standards also offers customers peace of mind that their data will be managed properly and be secure. Security is part of our company culture and ensures resilience against cyber threats to protect customer information and data, thus reducing business and project risks."
Andy Butterfield, Managing Director of Built Environment at BSI, comments, "As the demand for digital transformation in architecture, construction and asset management continues to grow, and the number of potential software support tools escalates, it is becoming increasingly difficult for organizations to identify appropriate software to support their needs.
"Zutec has become one of the first organizations globally to achieve this mark of trust and I would like to congratulate them all for their commitment to encouraging a collaborative approach across the life cycle of a built asset."
