ASCON, 1C partner to form Renga Software for BIM solutions

October 3, 2016 – ASCON Group and 1C Company announced a joint venture for BIM software development. The new company, Renga Software, will develop and promote the Renga product line, along with developing new BIM solutions purpose-built for the Russian market. Development of the Renga design system for AEC (architecture, engineering, construction) will be synchronized with development of solutions from 1c Company for managing and accounting at construction companies, as well as the integration of the two product lines.

ASCON Group is Russia's largest developer and integrator of professional AEC, MCAD, and PLM systems. 1C Company one of the largest developers of business software. Renga Architecture is an existing AEC architectural system for structure and engineering systems design.

The two partners will participate on an equal basis, in which ASCON Group contributes intellectual property, in the form of rights to the Renga software program, and members of the Renga development team, all of whom will join the new company. 1C Company will provide investment funds and the resources for developing, marketing, and distributing the software. The CEO of the new company will be Eugeny Shuvalov, ASCON Group's previous Channel Director. Renga Software will use the distribution channels of both companies in Russia and in foreign markets.

The implementation of BIM technology is supported by the government of Russia, but in the past has proven to have a high cost and be difficult to integrate with ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems. Without the integration, it is impossible to optimize costs and deadlines, and holds back wide acceptance. The new Renga Software firm is working to eliminate these problems. Both firms see opportunities in their strategic partnership to quickly develop and release effective BIM solutions to the market.

Renga Software will be able to offer users a full compliment of BIM solutions. Renga design software will be integrated with 1C:ERP construction organization management software, as well as other products from 1C Company. The company's construction software is already in use by thousands of design, construction, and management organizations in 25 countries.
