Vico Software Announces the Signing of Significant Partnership Agreements in the Middle East


Dubai and Boulder -- April 9, 2008 -- Vico Software is delighted to announce the signing of a significant partnership agreement in the Middle East: Synergy Software Systems in Dubai. This agreement follows the recently announced partnership with AtOne in Bahrain.  Synergy will provide technical resources in the Middle East for deployment of Vico's award winning 5D virtual construction process. 


Mark Sawyer, CEO of Vico said "I'm very pleased to be working with Synergy. This partner brings a wide range of experience and skills established over many years that will be of great value to our construction customers.  We at Vico strongly believe in the need for accomplished Project Managers with direct construction experience in order to provide the best possible client support; Synergy has clearly demonstrated that they have these skill sets plus the resources to deliver."


Stephen Jones from Synergy commented, "Synergy Software Systems has delivered leading construction solutions to the Middle East for over 10 years. The challenge of skill shortages and material inflation are greater than ever. 5D modeling and line of balance planning will integrate construction management and slash the massive waste and lost time endemic in the industry. Lean construction is now a reality and we are delighted with end user response to Vico Software."


Vico has also outlined an innovative programme for all Colleges and Universities in the Middle East.  Vico Software will make available to all academic institutions, for both professors and students, the latest 5D Virtual Construction software free of chargeAll educational institutions can apply for this software and will also be provided with free Interactive Training Guides.  In addition any tutor may also attend a free training course at Vico's development office in Budapest.


Mark Sawyer added "we believe that the Middle East is the most progressive and dynamic construction environment in the world today.  The pace of construction which has to date been extremely rapid is forecast to make a quantum leap in the near future.  This will put enormous pressures on existing technical resources in the construction industry.  We therefore believe that one of the ways in which Vico can play a part in helping resolve this potentially enormous problem, is to train existing and future students on the latest technologies designed to improve overall productivity of the industry".
