January 22, 2019 - Corporate News

What an incredible year it’s been with RIB and iTWO opening so many new opportunities for our clients, not to mention our revolutionary products. With great anticipation we start 2019, but let’s look back at some of 2018’s achievements!


Sizable Revenue Increase



In the first 9 months of 2018:

  • Group revenues grew by 18.1%
  • Revenues in the iTWO segment rose by 15.1%
  • Recurring revenues increased by 14.8%
  • Guidance for FY 2018 estimated to come in at €124 million – €130 million


New Cutting-edge Technology Release


Together with Microsoft this has marked a milestone of RIB entering the next leap of development in our platform. MTWO vertical cloud combines RIB iTWO 5D BIM technology with Microsoft Azure in an enterprise solution for developers, contractors, and owners to speed up their digital transformation journey. MTWO provides everything an organization needs in a subscription solution to meet your business demands.


RIB and Microsoft’s Hackathons have been a great success! Talents from both sides came together focusing on pitching ideas and addressing opportunities in the McTWO artificial intelligence which is an ever-evolving field, to empower McTWO to offer more to the market.  


We are super excited to share the journey to develop the world’s first AI-powered engineer in the coming year. Powered by artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning, McTWO can support onsite engineers on their daily tasks, dive deep into the project data to provide smart analytics and insights for construction management, bringing unprecedented productivity and substantially reducing project risk for companies in the industry. This is another milestone to revolutionize the building, construction and infrastructure industry.


Inspiring Partnership Success Stories


To accelerate the international roll-out of the MTWO technology, RIB is committed to developing its global MSP partner network. The MTWO MSP partner network aims to help companies in the construction industry achieve productivity gains through digital transformation on the cloud.


Through the cooperation, the YTWO Platform integrates and works with iTWO PPS (Production Planning & Scheduling) to actualize Myhome’s overarching goal of streamlining prefabrication productions, precast factory management, and lean manufacturing across their nation-wide factories.


We are proud to acknowledge the iTWO technology contributing to China Railway Engineering Consulting Group’s BIM project Ji’nan-Qingdao high-speed railway, which started operation on Dec 26, 2018.


Strategic Investments


Since 2003, Exactal Group has been developing software specifically for the quantity surveying and estimating market. Jointly we can strengthen our market position, whilst continuing the excellent business development that our stand-alone products have seen over the last years.


Datengut designs, develops and distributes unique software solutions, enabling a completely new way of working for clients with a focus on mid-sized and large construction companies. Through the participation, we intend to establish a competence center for mobility for the DACH region with a focus on the iTWO app-development.


By integrating IMS’ facility management solutions with the cloud-based iTWO 4.0 technology, we will raise efficiency throughout the entire life cycle of buildings and infrastructures to a new level. The existing know-how on both sides ideally complements each other, especially in the areas of IoT, sensor technology, robotics and smart technology, and extends the consistency of our solution from planning and construction through to operation.


Landmark Events


RIB sponsored and contributed to Die Deutsche Bauindustrie 2018, in which we highlighted MTWO – the world’s #1 vertical cloud for the construction and real estate industries and the vision for AI solution to further accelerate the digital transformation of the construction industry.


In Nov 7-8 RIB successfully hosted the 6th iTWO World Conference in Guangzhou, China, with over 40 speakers discussing cutting-edge technologies with new insights. The world’s first artificial intelligence engineer – McTWO, made its gorgeous debut at the conference.
