MODUL-PLAN Adds ArchiFM to its Software Tools
ARCHICAD and ArchiFM are the basis of the firm's planning and building construction management activities
BUDAPEST/MUNICH, May 3, 2001 - MODUL-PLAN, a business management firm for the building industry, has relied on Graphisoft products for years to plan, consult on, and manage residential, commercial and industrial construction projects. With the combination of ARCHICAD, ArchiFM and HouseMap, the company offers its clients an efficient, all-encompassing service.
"All the building data created during the planning process in ARCHICAD - our software solution for architects - is useful for ArchiFM and represents a tremendous savings in time and expense," explains Abraham König, director of product management at Graphisoft Germany. "The seamless connection between Graphisoft software ideally suits MODUL-PLAN's project requirements, where a complex view of objects is needed."
MODUL-PLAN has been working with ARCHICAD for more than six years. Using it in combination with the precise survey software HouseMap allows changes in design to be assigned immediately among costs and material expenditures. In contrast to other facility management solutions on the market, ArchiFM uses up to 100 percent of available ARCHICAD data. The cooperation of these three products makes it possible for MODUL-PLAN to provide customers with complex services, including managing construction costs and controlling the project.
"Since the foundation of our company, we've been using Graphisoft's products, as they enable easy coordination of our projects and serve as the backbone of our efficient working methods," explains Gabriele Rausch, CEO of MODUL-PLAN. "Particularly, the logical connection of the software, the ease-of-use and the variety of application possibilities have convinced us that this is the perfect solution for us."
