Graphisoft Recruiting North American Resellers
New Business Opportunities for CAD Software Resellers Making 3D BIM Technology Accessible to Everyone
Boston, MA - November 12, 2007 – Graphisoft Inc. is seeking qualified CAD software resellers who wish to tap into the fast-growing market for Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology.
The new Graphisoft Reseller Program offers companies new revenue opportunities through selling and supporting ARCHICAD, an industry-leading building design, simulation and collaboration software solution for the architectural and construction industries.
The award-winning ARCHICAD is sold in over 80 countries and in 22 languages for both Windows and Macintosh operating systems. Graphisoft, which already has a substantial North American customer base, is expanding rapidly in the region thanks to the company's increasing brand awareness and an innovative business model that makes 3D virtual building design accessible to more businesses and individuals.
For example, Toronto-based Graphisoft reseller Ardent Technologies, which services the Northeast U.S. and Canadian regions, has seen its ARCHICAD business growing 25 percent annually while watching the buzz about BIM growing apace among its customer base.
"We knew that if we could combine our methodologies and services with the right software partner, both we and our new AEC customers could make a lot of money," said PJ Lennon, Ardent's vice president of sales and marketing. "The best software partner was Graphisoft."
Lennon believes that BIM is quickly becoming a transformational revolution. "Once they set up a pilot ARCHICAD implementation and see the huge productivity and ROI potential, they immediately become believers. They recognize the opportunity to become a more valuable firm to their clients by creating better buildings at less cost," he said.
"Customers realize the tremendous benefit to their business in moving to BIM. Helping users make the transition to BIM is proving that resellers earn margin far above the traditional commodity business of design software. We provide the tools for our VAR's to help customers achieve success," said Patrick Mays, Vice President of Graphisoft North America. "Our customers have realized millions of buildings with our software. We have tremendous knowledge of what it takes to help firms be successful."
