San Rafael, Calif., & Alexandria, Va., July 11, 2008-Autodesk announced that it has selected CADD Microsystems, Inc. as Reseller of the Quarter for the first quarter of fiscal year 2009. The designation recognizes the reseller not only for its sales performance and dedication to customer service, but also for the growth of its operations and its investments in the business of selling Autodesk software. Autodesk selected CADD Microsystems from among more than 100 resellers throughout the Americas.

"We do more than simply sell software to our customers. For more than 21 years, we have listened to our customers and developed an educational approach to helping our clients implement the proper Autodesk design solutions that enable them to achieve their goals,” said Jeff Gravatte, CEO of CADD Microsystems. "This recognition from Autodesk is a great validation of our commitment to our customers and to growing our business."

Based in Alexandria, Va., and serving the Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Northern Virginia area, CADD Microsystems provides software to customers in architecture, construction, civil engineering, facilities management, GIS (geographic information systems), mapping, visualization and government. In addition to its status as an Autodesk Authorized Training Center, CADD Microsystems is also an Autodesk Premier Solutions Provider, the top tier of the Autodesk reseller channel for civil engineering, building architecture, federal government and state and local government.

CADD Microsystems partners with its customers to help ensure the best solution for their design needs. For example, CADD Microsystems worked closely with Ayers/Saint/Gross Architects + Planners to help with the firm’s adoption of building information modeling (BIM) and Revit-based software. The firm has had great success using Revit Architecture and Autodesk 3ds Max software on several high-profile projects. Working with CADD Microsystems to implement Autodesk solutions has helped Ayers/Saint/Gross improve workflows and efficiency.

"Reseller partners like CADD Microsystems are vital to Autodesk," said Steven Blum, senior vice president, Americas Sales, Autodesk. "CADD Microsystems’ performance demonstrates the value of going above and beyond in its dedication to its customers and its investment in its business."

The Reseller of the Quarter designation is based on factors such as quality of customer service and support, overall sales, vertical sales and overall growth. Customer adoption of integrated solutions and 3D design technologies like Revit Architecture software has helped to propel CADD Microsystems’ growth.
