Business Values

The value of Tandem for AEC Firms

Unlock the power of data to open new revenue streams, win repeat business and drive client relationships forward with digital twins.

How Tandem Drives Your AEC Business Forward

Offer digital twin delivery as a paid service

Today, handovers are slow, complicated and do not provide intuitive data visibility for owners and operators. Now you can produce greater value when delivering digital twins to clients. Leverage the work your team puts into creating a digital twin by promoting it as additional, specialized service that adds significant value to building operations.

Build long-lasting client relationships with multi-year contracts

After the handover, digital twins still need to be maintained. As facilities evolve, assets may need to be replaced or upgraded, and new systems can be installed. By proposing to keep the digital twin updated on behalf of your client, AEC firms can cultivate an ongoing relationship with owners and facility managers – opening new revenue streams through multi-year maintenance contracts.

Gain a unique competitive edge

Win more business at the RFP stage. Digital twins offer unique benefits for owners and operators, and as they mature, your clients gain added value. By making digital twins a part of your offering, you’ll win more business and referrals.
