ArchiFM Debuts with CADALYST Magazine's Top Ten Award at A/E/C SYSTEMS 2000
San Francisco, CA - June 22, 2000 - Even before Graphisoft's ArchiFM 2000 has shipped in the United States, CADALYST magazine singled it out as a Top Ten product for CAD users at A/E/C Systems 2000.
CADALYST editors lauded Graphisoft's new computer-aided facilities management (CAFM) solution as the point where "Object-oriented design starts to deliver on its promise through links to ARCHICAD 6.5 architectural objects and by allowing direct use of the original design data for facilities management."
ArchiFM 2000, now available in several European countries, will be released in the third quarter of 2000 under the joint effort of Graphisoft US and the recently acquired Drawbase Software, whose leadership in the CAFM industry will play an important role in quickly establishing market share for Graphisoft's latest offering.
