“We deliver function, not just drawings”
“We work closely with our customers in order to deliver what they require, which is a pleasant indoor environment with optimised investment and running costs. Of course, drawings are used in the process, but it’s always the end result that counts. ÅF primarily draws its competitive strength from a well structured work process that safeguards quality throughout the project. This means, of course, that we place high demands on our design tools,” says Björn Qvist, Business Area Manager Installations at ÅF.
“MagiCAD has steadily improved over the years and we feel that the program supplier is a good listener and understands our business. The latest MagiCAD versions for AutoCAD and Revit also provide us with the flexibility we need.”
MagiCAD at ÅF
The 3-year agreement that ÅF signed with Progman’s Swedish supplier CADCOM in June 2010 covers all MagiCAD modules for AutoCAD and Revit. The agreement also includes support for MagiCAD as well as the Autodesk products AutoCAD and Revit. Several levels of training are also provided. In addition to direct design support, CADCOM meets with ÅF project managers and executives to lay out MagiCAD’s potential for improving profitability by means of a faster and more efficient design process.
