Today Autodesk announced their partnership with FM:Systems, a company that has focused on facilities management for over 25 years. FMDesktop users can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that they can move forward without the fear of losing their FM product – they can use FMDesktop until they are ready to transition to FM:Systems tools.
The preferred industry partnership between Autodesk and FM:Systems ensures continued customer support for Autodesk FMDesktop software users. The terms of the agreement state that FM:Systems will provide extended support to FMDesktop users as well as the option to migrate to FM:Interact Workplace Management Suite.
The announcement is a step toward integrating BIM and FM so that owners, architects, engineers and contractors can participate in the process.
