FOCUS ON INTEROPERABILITY - agcXML
The Construction Open Software Alliance (COSA) is a community of construction industry professionals who support open integration standards in construction software. COSA believes in facilitating an uninhibited flow of information between the complementary software applications construction professionals depend on most. A one-stop-suite is not always the best choice and it is much more efficient for the end user to operate multiple applications when they integrate seamlessly. This is possible through open application standards that are developed and implemented by construction technology providers to facilitate the transfer of cross-application data.
