ecolearn infobase uses ProMaterial product data with bSI UniversalTypes

ecolearn intends to categorize product data of construction materials in the infobase with the UniversalTypes of buildingSMART International and ProMaterial, among others. For this purpose, ecolearn has access to manufacturer data directly from the ProMaterial technology network for the construction industry.

In the ecolearn infobase, suitable building products, services and media can be published centrally and intelligently networked so that daily work is more efficient. Anyone can use the infobase to quickly and purposefully offer and find reliable, transparent information and to contact project partners in a targeted manner. The intelligent networking saves research time and thus enables quick access to current specialist topics.

In order to enable manufacturers to make their building products available to other target groups, such as specialist planners, architects and tradesmen, at no extra cost, ecolearn has created a technical solution for integrating data from the ProMaterial network. Essential product information, article texts, product images, data sheets, declarations of performance and more will then be available in high quality. In the ProMaterial Network, products are uniformly described and categorized by an international industry standard - the UniversalTypes of buildingSMART International.

About ProMaterial:
ProMaterial is the new technology network specialized in e-sourcing and online distribution of building products. The innovative SaaS technology supports manufacturers and distributors to present and efficiently sell construction materials and products with excellent data quality via various channels on the Internet. ProMaterial itself is a technology supplier and not a market participant. All groups of buyers find information about the products in the required form, in industry software solutions, online marketplaces, BIM or calculation systems or more simply via web shop. Professional customers and end users can more conveniently order a wider range of products. Under the auspices of buildingSMART International (bSI), ProMaterial is working with the industry to develop a new manufacturer-neutral description format for the properties of construction products. UniversalTypes, supported by many other software partners, are introduced in 25 country organizations of bSI.
