“From planning, control, resource management, quality analysis, and analytics: everything can be created from our platform.” Franco Giaquinto.
Franco Giaquinto -founder and CEO of Ipsum, was in the process of developing a mobile application that could assess the prestige of construction professionals when he discovered that there were many challenges in the industry.
At first, he created several software products that offered solutions to different areas; after combining them, he finally obtained an integral platform, with web and mobile versions, to manage both engineering and construction projects based on BIM and Lean Construction methodologies. Getting the construction companies to adopt the use of this type of technology has represented a huge challenge for Ipsum, as it implies a great cultural change in the way of working. However, more and more companies, mainly large, are open to doing so.
Even though they spent two years planning, learning and executing work plans, it was in 2016 when they developed the current version of the software, and during 2017 they grew to have 5 times their original size. In its third year of life, the platform is already being considered one of the 100 startups that are revolutionizing the construction industry globally, according to the specialized site CB insights.
