Arcadis forms alliance with RedEye to digitize built asset industry
(3 April 2017) – Arcadis Australia Pacific today announced a strategic alliance with Australian tech innovator RedEye to transform the Australian built asset industry’s use of data.
The strategic alliance will see Arcadis integrate RedEye’s innovative cloud solution into its strategic asset management offering, bringing a tangible digital solution to public and private organisations that own, operate and maintain critical infrastructure.
RedEye provides an enterprise mobile solution that transfers “as-built” engineering drawings and related data to the cloud. The revolutionary platform allows teams to easily collaborate and find, markup, back draft, review, approve, use and manage their data from anywhere, and on any device.
Stephen Uhr, Client and Corporate Development Director, Arcadis Australia Pacific: “The industry is crying out for digital to go beyond a buzz word and to contribute to resolving real business problems. Building information modelling (BIM) is slowly beginning to meet its promised potential, but what of all the existing data?
“Too often we wait for the next big project to start our digital journey. We are yet to see the industry truly embrace a holistic digital solution; this provides an outstanding opportunity to bring together a global consultancy with Australian developed cutting edge digital products.
“RedEye are the unsung heroes of the engineering industry. In a short time, Wayne Gerard and his team have helped many in the industry to unravel the power of their data. With RedEye, you don’t have to wait for the next big project but can act immediately to bring existing engineering data into the digital world in a useable form, by making your existing drawings cloud-based and mobile. This saves time, improves safety and collaboration, saves money and provides your first essential and tangible step into digital solutions.
“It’s time we stop talking about digital in engineering as a theory and start using it smarter to add more value to what we do.”
Wayne Gerard, CEO, RedEye: “Arcadis is setting a new industry benchmark using our cloud and mobile solutions to provide value and real insights to their clients and the industry.
“We’re excited to be working with a global industry leader that shares our values, it’s a perfect fit for us and the industry. Arcadis is an innovative design & consultancy firm with 27,000 people operating in over 70 countries. RedEye is the disruptive market leader in asset data and digital workforce management solutions for built assets.
“Our unique solutions sit within the rapidly growing big data market, one of the fastest growing enterprise markets with a projected global value of US$48.3 billion by 2018. The alliance has the scale and depth of experience to transform the way built assets are operated and managed all over the world.”
