New York, NY (PRWEB) March 27, 2010
Archaio LLC (http://www.archaio.com), a world-class software company specializing in digital technology and true scale building intelligence, together with its overseas licensee The Darvesh Group, today entered into an agreement with WSP Group Proprietary South Africa Ltd. WSP Group South Africa (WSP) is a subsidiary of WSP Group plc, a global management and consultancy firm with offices in 35 countries.
The agreement licenses Archaio's The Digital Building TM system to WSP, which will promote, market and install Archaio's products in South Africa. The Digital Building system comprises The Digital Building and Archaio's document viewer. Additionally, WSP has rights to provide training and maintenance to clients in the agreed upon territory.
"We are excited to have the opportunity to up-sell Archaio's revolutionary patented technology, especially with the upcoming World Cup Tournament this June. WSP will approach new venues in South Africa as well as existing clients and provide them the opportunity to purchase this remarkable product as a value add to our traditional services," said WSP Group Managing Director Andrew Mather.
Using Archaio's patented technology, WSP will digitize buildings plans from paper blueprints, CAD files, or other electronic sources and create true scale 2-D and 3-D building models. Upon the conclusion of training in Johannesburg, South Africa, WSP will commence working towards a goal of digitizing 700,000 square meters by year-end 2010.
"Licensing our software to WSP is significant in bringing our ground breaking technology to this region of the world. We expect to digitize hotels, convention centers and several stadiums for the upcoming World Cup Tournament this summer," said Chief Executive Roy Judelson. "Public safety will be a top priority during the World Cup and having immediate access to critical building information will be extremely important for planning and response in the case of an incident."
