Altiva Software’s CADconform complements ModernTech’s goal
to help engineering clients increase efficiency and profits
May 29, 2007 (Knoxville, Tennessee) -- ModernTech is pleased to announce their acceptance as the first reseller partner for Altiva Software. Altiva’s CADconform software is designed to enforce compliance to Computer Aided Design (CAD) standards in an engineering environment.
ModernTech has provided leading-edge technology solutions to the architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) markets since 1988. With a primary focus on design and engineering software from Bentley Systems, CADconform will complement ModernTech’s existing product and service offerings enabling engineering firms to reduce design time and increase profits.
CADconform is add-on software that works seamlessly between MicroStation® from Bentley Systems and Autodesk’s AutoCAD®, the two leading CAD platform software packages, to promote and enforce 100% conformance to CAD standards. ModernTech is the largest value-added integrator of Bentley products in the U.S. supporting more than 22,000 users throughout the southeast.
CAD data, which is intellectual property stored in engineering and design drawings, is a valuable asset that can serve a company throughout the entire lifecycle of a facility, from engineering and design, throughout operations, maintenance and decommissioning. But to achieve this value, the data must conform to CAD standards. During design, engineering and construction, nonstandard CAD data can lead to costly errors and unpaid rework.
“ModernTech is excited about this partnership with Altiva Software,” commented ModernTech General Manager Jim Carroll. “A crucial part of our business is finding and providing new and innovative solutions that complement our Bentley offerings. CADconform is just such an innovative find, and we know that 100% conformance to CAD standards using CADconform will contribute significantly to our goals of improving efficiency and cost savings for our clients.”
“We are delighted to enter into this agreement with ModernTech,” said Altiva Software CEO Philip Hurlston. “It is really an honor when another company recognizes the value of your product and approaches you to be a reseller. This agreement is a win-win for ModernTech and Altiva. But the real winners are the AEC firms that use CADconform to achieve 100% conformance of their CAD data, then reap the efficiency, cost savings and value that standardized CAD data provides.”
Since 1988, ModernTech has been providing the AEC markets with CAD software, professional services, support and training. Headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, ModernTech has offices and training centers across the Southeast. Representing leading engineering technology providers such as Bentley Systems, Z Corporation and Riverbed Technology, ModernTech’s mission is to serve our clients by continually offering new applications, new technologies and new products that are designed to help them to increase productivity, profits, and to gain a competitive edge. ModernTech is one of two divisions of Modern Technology Corporation with 62 employees and over 15 million in revenue. ModernTech’s sister division, ModernTech Mechanical, serves the mechanical design and manufacturing markets.
