Case Peikko

How Peikko could improve their support towards architects and engineers

Starting point Over thousand files

Peikko offered hundreds of Revit models and over a thousand CAD files to help designers’ work. The content was distributed through Peikko.com

The Problem Keeping content up to date

  • Manually maintained block libraries were hardly ever up to date. Peikko faced several cases where project had been designed using products that were no longer manufactured.
  • Other issue was the lack of product data. CAD blocks didn’t contain any information except main dimensions. No actual information required for best possible product selection.

The Goal Managing and distributing content centrally

  • Manage and distribute CAD and BIM content centrally
  • To ensure that designers have always the latest products in use and information to choose them.
  • Get information of actual usage, to support future product and content development.

The solution A product information platform

Peikko decided to start developing content distribution in collaboration with ProdLib. The Peikko product library in ProdLib was created together and published in 1.10.2014.

Today Years of successful content sharing

Today Peikko distributes design content for thousands of engineers through ProdLib. The library consists of CAD files, Revit and Archicad objects + pdf content.

During 2018, already over 65.000 products or product details from Peikko had been inserted to projects using ProdLib.

Main benefits for Peikko Effective and reliable content sharing
