Fukui Computer and Bentley Systems partner to support digital transformation in Japanese infrastructure10 October 2022
Fukui Computer Inc has entered into a strategic partnership with Bentley Systems to help accelerate the adoption of digital workflows in the Japanese construction industry and support the promotion of digital transformation (DX) in the infrastructure field.
In Japan, there are concerns about the increasing shortage of labor in the infrastructure field, which is impacting the ability to take measures to mitigate aging infrastructure. This situation is further aggravated by the intensification and frequent occurrence of natural disasters. To help combat this, Fukui Computer will leverage the Bentley iTwin platform to augment its cloud-based data sharing service CIMPHONY Plus with 3D/4D visualization, simulation, and digital twin capabilities. The company will launch a digital solution that supports the entire infrastructure lifecycle, spanning project management, design, construction, and maintenance. Fukui Computer will also launch TREND ROAD Designer for road design, a new 3D application that will leverage Bentley’s OpenRoads Designer, an industry standard for road concept, design, construction, and operations.
“Collaborating with Fukui Computer benefits all parties,” said Carsten Gerke, senior vice president of strategic channels with Bentley Systems, “End users will benefit from cutting-edge, world-class digital technology and trusted local expertise. Bentley will address the demanding Japanese infrastructure market and i-Construction regulations through the market leader in Japan, while Fukui Computer will provide the most innovative digital twin solutions to dramatically improve the construction industry in Japan.”
Tadashi Sugita, president of Fukui Computer, added: “The strategic partnership with Bentley Systems will allow us to introduce cutting-edge digital technology to the ICT field in the construction industry in Japan. As a software company being trusted by the construction companies who support the infrastructure in local communities, we will strive to contribute to society by providing useful products and valuable support services.”
