FMDesktop and Autodesk

Wow, just heard about this. Autodesk has acquired FMDesktop and merged it into their Building Solutions Division. Autodesk will support existing users and honor subscription agreements. Bob Fahlin and Dusty Smith will be working in the BSD now, too.

If you are an existing FMDesktop customer, you can check out the FAQ on their site. For those who are not currently customers, you can purchase from resellers listed here for now.

I am excited about this acquisition as it's an even more overt support from Autodesk for Facilities Management. Not everyone will like the idea of big old autodesk taking over another company, but, for lifecycle and interoperability issues, I'd rather we got something from Autodesk themselves.

I had a wonderful Christmas and am off to a great start in the New Year! and I hope the same for you.
