Each year, Autodesk Authorized Training Center (ATC) Partners and Instructors are recognized with awards based on their instructional performance and customer feedback. This year, Applied Software's trainers were awarded top instructor awards for 2008.
Rick France was named Autodesk Authorized Training Center Instructor of the Year for the Americas Group. He surpassed more than 3,300 other instructors to win top honors.

Applied Software's Revit instructors received the North America award for distinguished performance in Autodesk Revit Architecture. Revit is the industry's leading platform for Building Information Modeling (BIM). Applied Software's instructors are at the forefront of helping architectural, engineering and construction firms migrate from traditional approaches to BIM.
BIM is an innovative method of generating and managing building data during a building's lifecycle, from design through construction to facility management. The BIM process was developed to bridge communication between the architecture, engineering and construction teams and the owner to streamline workflow, increase productivity and improve quality during the design and construction of buildings as well as provide valuable facility information to building owners.
"One of Applied Software's primary missions is to help our clients leverage Autodesk solutions in their business. Effective training is vital to our client's success and I am honored to have these dedicated and skilled instructors on our team," stated Applied Software President Richard Burroughs.
