The Graphisoft + EntreArchitect Partnership

I am excited to announce that Graphisoft is now an official partner of EntreArchitect and The EntreArchitect Community. I’ve been meeting with the Graphisoft team for months preparing for this partnership and I can confidently say that our friends at Graphisoft are fully committed to supporting our small firms… and our transition to Archicad and BIM.

Archicad BIM software enables design, collaboration, visualization, and project delivery – no matter the project size or complexity. With flexible licensing options, and a dedicated support team to guide us along the way, Archicad is an ideal choice for firms and projects of any size. That’s why I am personally committed to finally making the move to BIM myself, from CAD to Archicad. (I’ll share more on that as I progress.)

I encourage you to reach out and talk to the folks at Graphisoft today by visiting our own dedicated webpage at Graphisoft.com/us/EntreArchitect. There is even an exclusive special offer waiting for our community of architects. Go now to Graphisoft.com/us/EntreArchitect and see how Graphisoft is positioned to help make YOUR architecture firm a success. That’s Graphisoft.com/us/EntreArchitect.
