Excitech DOCS Featured in AEC Magazine for the Second Time
They wrote a positive review of the system following our launch event in 2017 and have re-visited it again two and a half years down the line. Hear what they thought...
As stated, our document and drawing management software solution Excitech DOCS was reviewed by Martyn Day of AEC Magazine just after its launch back in 2017. Read the previous article here
Two and a half years later, he begins the new article by stating that:
"While all the main CAD vendors are pushing all singing, all dancing cloud-based ‘collaboration’ services, there’s a lot to be said for having an internal management system that sits within your firewall and is completely under your control. Martyn Day revisits Excitech DOCS."
He continues "As we write this, big things are happening to Autodesk’s reseller network. In its move to subscription, the net effect has been that its reseller channel (sometimes called Value Added Resellers or VARs) started to condense into larger dealerships. This month Addnode Group announced it had acquired Excitech, which also owns Symmetri, already a huge pan-European software and services reseller to the construction and manufacturing market. In one of the biggest deals of this type, it seems the brands will continue as is, but all firms will benefit from economies of scale.
Within this changing nature of dealerships, many have stepped up their focus on providing consultancy for major projects and also developing their own in-house software. Excitech has always offered high-level consultancy, but the company is now establishing a reputation as being a key player in document management.
Excitech DOCS was launched in September 2017 and in the last two and a half years has continued to expand its capability and reach. With customers come feedback and feature requests and the software has grown from a fairly simple drawing management and transmittal system to a Swiss Army Knife for data collection, management and processing."
