Staff Report From Metro Atlanta CEO

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

Applied Software, a leading systems integrator and consultant to the AEC, construction and manufacturing industries, announced its acquisition of Technical Sales International, LLC, an Autodesk Gold Partner specializing in fabrication and construction solutions for the MEP industry. The purchase solidifies Applied Software as a premier MEP fabrication solutions provider in North America.

Headquartered in Rocklin, California, TSI offers sales, consulting, training, data and support services for Autodesk fabrication software products Fabrication CADmep, Fabrication ESTmep and Fabrication CAMduct, among others. TSI was a pioneer in the use and development of fabrication solutions and data content for the MEP fabrication and construction industry. Its early partnership with Micro Applications Packages Limited (MAP Software), a U.K.-based provider of CAD, CAM and estimating software for the MEP industry, led to its partnership with Autodesk upon Autodesk's acquisition of MAP Software.

"We're combining the talents, relationships and technologies of these two leading MEP fabrication and construction specialists in the industry," said Richard Burroughs, president of Applied Software. "The acquisition will enable us to better serve our clients throughout North America in many ways, including access to more robust expert consulting resources and a broader range of offerings from a single source.

"TSI's consulting and support team will be joining our team," added Burroughs. "Our new TSI clients will still be connected to their familiar specialists, but in addition they'll also now have access to the Applied Software team. We're looking forward to providing our clients the best customer experience possible."

"We're very excited about what this acquisition will mean for our customers and for the industry," said Technical Sales International CEO and CFO Tammy Ford. "For our customers, we anticipate a seamless transition for each of you in working with Applied Software, combined with a significant expansion of the offerings and services available."
