Bricscad - GeoTools e-Newsletter # 141:


October 24, 2012

On October 15, 2012, Bricsys released the English language version of BricsCAD V13 for the Windows® operating system. As detailed during the conference in Amsterdam, this V13 release coincides with the major rebranding effort including a refresh of the website

Guy Vancollie, the new Chief Marketing Officer of Bricsys provided us with some background information and the underlying rationale behind the rebranding effort. "After some ten years in the market, the BricsCAD offering has evolved from what started as an IntelliCAD®-based clone of AutoCAD®, to what is now a leading provider of dwg-based Unified CAD software, based on a solid foundation of both in-house software and components from the Open Design Alliance", said Guy Vancollie. "So the time had come to reflect the company’s changing nature in the industry, from a second tier player to a major contender, and translate this into a fresh new look, which will carry the brand forward for the next ten years!" is what Guy Vancollie had to say.

Bricsys decided to focus the branding efforts around the company’s main offering, the CAD software BricsCAD and Chapoo (the erstwhile Vondle). The new logo, the new look and feel rolled out earlier in the week throughout the company’s social media and web presence, reflect the contemporary and forward looking nature of the company.

Bricsys believes this is a thoroughly 21st century business model, sources the best development resources throughout Europe, Asia-Pac and the Americas and delivers its software solutions and support services through an online business platform with local sales points in more than 70 countries worldwide. "As we finalize the rollout of our branding refresh, we will now focus on expanding our messaging to better reflect the leadership nature of the BricsCAD software platform, and its uniqueness in providing customers with a single dwg-based CAD platform to take care of all their design needs from simple 2D drafting to advanced 3D direct modeling. We expect to do this together with you so that we can also stress the breadth and depth of the solutions brought to market by the BricsCAD Solution Partner community", said Guy in a message that strongly conveys his urgency to improve the communication, visibility and awareness of Bricsys and BricsCAD, that may have been lacking in many geographies.
