Axium, a leading developer of accounting and project management software for A/E firms, today announced the acquisition of ArchitTrek™, a web-based project collaboration tool for the architect and engineering market. ArchitTrek provides a platform for architects, engineers, owners, clients and contractors to collaborate, share documents and communicate project progress with additional tools for electronic bidding and change order management. The acquisition is the latest strategic move by Axium to expand capabilities for A/E firms among both existing and new clients.
“We purchased ArchitTrek because the company, culture and product it represents are a great match for Axium and our shared focus on customer satisfaction,” said Chris Heim, Axium CEO. “The team at ArchitTrek joins us with the confidence that we can accelerate the growth of the product and client adoption as it solves a real pain point experienced by A/E firms today.”

“This announcement marks the next positive chapter for ArchitTrek,” said Jerry Hebert, President, ArchitTrek. “We created ArchitTrek in response to the growing need A/E firms have for collaboration tools. We are convinced that Axium is the absolute right company to grow the business and solution.”
