Gent, Belgium October 7, 2009 - Bricsys announced the release of Bricscad V10, a milestone version for the DWG based CAD market. Bricscad is recognized as the number one DWG CAD alternative by offering a complete and recognizable feature set to professional users. The combination of DWG compatibility, a recognizable interface, real day-to-day support and a reasonable price for new licenses and upgrades were key to its success so far. Bricscad V10 now adds innovation by introducing eBridge for teams.
eBridge starts where eTransmit ends. Instead of just collecting file dependencies in a folder or a zip file to be emailed, eBridge gives the user file versioning, file history, sharing files with others, control on access rights, the fastest online viewer with annotations history, workflow processing and much more. eBridge is a SaaS service integrated in Bricscad V10 and extends desktop CAD with online CAD management. It makes Bricscad V10 the perfect CAD-platform for teams. Bricsys will soon release a plug-in for AutoCAD®. Companies using both AutoCAD and Bricscad side by side can implement it in their day-to-day job. For more info on eBridge visit http://www.bricsys.com/en_INTL/bricscad/ebridge.jsp

“Bricscad V10 shows that Bricsys is not just a slavishly follower for DWG CAD but has the intention for innovation while continuing our strong support for the DWG legacy investments of the CAD community.”, says Erik De Keyser, CEO of Bricsys. “eBridge is just the start of integrating new team-collaboration tools into CAD. At the same time we continue to extend our technology offer for application developers and let them use and integrate these new technologies in their software via a SOAP API. And this is just the start.”
All previous versions of Bricscad are upgraded to V10: Bricscad Classic, Bricscad Pro and Bricscad all-in. A new top version is introduced as Bricscad eBridge, including all features of Bricscad Pro + 1 year eBridge service + 1 year updates and upgrades + 1 year next business day response time email support + the e-book “Customizing Bricscad” by Ralph Grabowski. Existing Bricscad users can subscribe eBridge as a separate feature, available in the Bricsys e-store.
