Avatech Wins Autodesk Award in Visualization and Gives American Structurepoint New Competitive Edge

BALTIMORE—(BUSINESS WIRE)—April 6, 2009— Avatech Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: AVSO), America’s leading professional services company for design and engineering technologies, has been inducted into the Autodesk Platinum Club 2009, an honor that recognizes top software sales and growth in the Americas. Avatech was recognized for Top Media & Entertainment Visualization Product Sales Growth in North America.

“The Platinum Club inductees have performed at a consistently high level, in spite of the economic challenges,” says Steve Blum, Autodesk senior vice president of Americas sales. “They continue to deliver world-class service and technical expertise to help customers fully experience their ideas virtually through Autodesk solutions.”

Bringing this expertise to bear, Avatech has also created a winning design visualization environment for American Structurepoint in Indianapolis, Ind. This 11-time winner of Engineering News-Record’s Top 500 Design Firms specializes in architecture, civil engineering, structural engineering, transportation, planning, environmental design, surveying, and construction administration.

American Structurepoint contracted Avatech for more than 100 hours of consulting expertise to improve their rendering and animation capabilities. Focusing on employee education, developing new rendering methodologies, and incorporating best practices, Avatech has helped American Structurepoint to realize tremendous productivity gains—cutting rendering times from hours to minutes. This has enabled American Structurepoint to bid on and handle more projects without adding more staff, while offering a new animation component that competitors just can’t match.

“When we show stakeholders an animation of a proposed public project, we get ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs,’” says Cash Canfield, transportation department manager, American Structurepoint. “Thanks to Avatech and our IT services division, we streamlined and optimized our rendering process. There’s a lot of trust in our relationship with Avatech, which helps us keep up with technology and stay several paces ahead of the competition.”

“Helping firms like American Structurepoint stay on the cutting edge of technology is one of the things Avatech does best,” says Bruce White, senior vice-president at Avatech. “People expect to see what their projects will look like in every detail before they invest time and money, and design firms need to meet those customer expectations. Three-dimensional, photo-realistic renderings and animations mean more winning proposals for our customers.”
