What you see is what you get

PORTER is connected to the interior finishing product databases of brand-name manufacturers with their actual collections at fixed prices. This gives all project stakeholders maximum planning security and cost control – already during the planning stage.

Because PORTER is cloud based, the planning databases and manufacturer product ranges are always up to date. Algorithms running in the background enable area ratios to be calculated in real time and quantity/parts lists including pricing are generated.

PORTER upgrades the BIM process

PORTER is fully compatible with BIM as a management and planning tool. The databases that are created in PORTER can simply be integrated into the overall concept. The supported file format is .ifc.
