Product Manager, Mark Evans, reports that the three main components of Autodesk® FMDesktop 7, Facility Manager, Facility Link, and Facility Web characterize a very exciting release that demonstrates revolutionary concepts for the Facilities Management software market. Here are some quotes from customers who have seen version 7 in the last 2 months:
From facilities managers:
- "No polylining is phenomenal! The long term cost is probably 30% less on that alone."
- "The way you put graphics in a work order… I’ve never seen that before."
- "This seems intuitive. I like the Outlook look and feel."
From our channel partners:
- "Overall publishing and the web page itself have definitely matured! Extremely happy!"
- "Dynamic Hatching. Excellent A+++ on this one, it gives me the flexibility to produce great reports."
- "Overall, A++ for demos, A- for real use"
From architectural firms:
- "I am impressed by the simplicity of all this."
- "I’m not sure there are any competitors if this is as easy as it looks."
- "It’s just a matter of time before we want to use this with one of our clients."
- "Being integrated with Autodesk is going to change the world of CAFM."
- "This would be a clear, clean, deliverable – better than DWGs and Xrefs that are nearly unusable for a facility manager."
- "As for Little, we definitely see this as a major step towards the inevitable future. As you probably already know, we are becoming heavy Revit Users and all of our projects going forward will be done in Revit. Having FMDesktop as an instant value add only improves our position with current clients as well as new ones. "
Mark goes on to say that the ease of use and powerful graphics that our customers love wouldn’t be possible without DWF. Thanks Mark!
