PRESS RELEASE – September 1, 2017
LONDON, UK, September 1. eRDS SOLUTIONS & SERVICES LTD APPOINT PAUL GOODMAN-SIMPSON AS CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (CEO). Following the completion of a management buyout of the ownership interest of the company eRDS Solutions & Services Ltd (eRDS) and its intellectual property, Goodman-Simpson has joined the business to guide its development into the converging room data and BIM sectors.
Co-founders Derek Ednie & Steve Foott commented “We are extremely pleased Paul has joined us in a formal role as Managing Director, after having been a consultant to the business since 2016. His wealth of experience in the BIM (Building Information Models) industry with software developers and as a consultant delivering projects, means he is well positioned to manage our BIM integration strategy and guide the company to the next level backed up with funding from our private equity partner”
Goodman-Simpson commented “As the BIM, asset and facilities management sectors converge, room data is gaining increasing value within the chain as a source of management information. Its use is vital for successful and efficient fit-out during construction, and then onwards during handover and building maintenance and operations.” We have already created a robust integration between Revit and eRDS room data, and our strategy is to repeat this for all other BIM vendors through direct integrations and Open BIM IFC”. This is an exciting time for me personally and for the company. We are fortunate to have the financial backing that will allow us to reach our objectives quickly, and I’m looking forward to releasing the new products scheduled in our development roadmap.”
