Collaboration between BricsCAD reseller and virtual desktop provider demonstrates growing interest in CAD in the cloud
Online PR News – 21-April-2021 – Nurnberg – Brixtech and designairspace today announced a new reseller agreement that will help designers use BricsCAD software in the cloud. Brixtech is the leading reseller of the popular BricsCAD software in the UK, while Germany’s designairspace provide virtual desktops that let designers load CAD software and work on designs remotely. The reseller agreement will augment Brixtech’s offering by allowing customers to use BricsCAD anywhere.
Until now, designers who use BricsCAD would need to run the software on local computers in their office. But this new partnership means Brixtech can support the remote work revolution and give customers more flexibility. It will now be possible for users to ‘rent’ time on designairspace’s cloud-based virtual desktops and run BricsCAD (and BricsCAD BIM) over the internet.
This partnership demonstrates how the market for CAD and BIM in the cloud is beginning to expand. Brixtech are a leading BricsCAD reseller, so their decision to partner with designairspace shows they believe the market is ready for this new approach to running CAD and BIM programmes in the cloud.
Following a year of remote working and a ‘new normal’ of hybrid office/WFH expected for many design jobs, this reseller agreement allows Brixtech to meet customers where they are. By letting designers create and edit large BricsCAD files in the cloud, it will be much easier for design businesses to shift to this new staffing model.
Brixtech CEO Shan Chaudri explains why Brixtech chose to collaborate with designairspace: “With remote working on the rise, we could see our customers were in need of a solution that would let them work on design files anywhere”. After reviewing the options, Chaudri says designairspace was the obvious choice: “We thoroughly assessed the designairspace platform to verify whether it would meet our customers’ demanding expectations. We feel it is a solid, reliable and secure solution that will help designers work remotely with ease”.
A designairspace spokesperson said: “We are delighted to partner with the Brixtech team. Choosing designairspace to let their customers use BricsCAD remotely is a vote of confidence in our technology”. The spokesperson added that: “With major resellers like Brixtech now offering a virtual workstation solution, this demonstrates that the CAD in the cloud revolution is truly beginning”.
