sa.global expands strategic AEC investment with help from Microsoft
Multi-faceted engagement highlights commitment to the AEC industry and the significant opportunity for aec360 as the AEC platform of the future
Atlanta, GA – February 20, 2020
sa.global, author of the aec360 business management suite, announced that it will work with Microsoft to expand its support of the Architecture, Engineering, Construction (AEC) business applications market beginning immediately. This relationship will include significant go-to-market investments across multiple channels designed to accelerate the AEC industry’s adoption of Microsoft Dynamics 365 and related Microsoft cloud services.
aec360 is a pre-configured version of Microsoft Dynamics 365 designed specifically to meet the unique needs of AEC firms. This broad suite includes best-in-class features that help firms integrate their marketing and business development, project management, accounting, and human resource management processes to drive efficiencies and improve visibility across the firm. Built on Microsoft Dynamics 365, aec360 runs as a native Azure cloud service, and tightly integrates with Office 365, Power BI, LinkedIn, and other Microsoft cloud services to embed productivity, collaboration, and advanced intelligence directly into the context of a firm’s business processes.
“We’ve seen a lot of success in the AEC industry over the past 10 years with our aec360 platform,” explained Whit McIsaac, Americas CEO at sa.global. “But never before has the market seen the current level of disruption as the legacy business applications vendors sunset their products and force their clients to move to unproven cloud solutions. This represents a major opportunity to further increase our momentum and help AEC firms take advantage of the possibilities that Microsoft Dynamics 365 and the Microsoft cloud offer.”
“The AEC market is still in the early stages of digital transformation,” explained Ashley Haynes-Gaspar, General Manager – Business Applications at Microsoft. “From our cloud-based business applications and productivity solutions to our advanced intelligence tools and even HoloLens, the breadth of Microsoft’s integrated offerings provides AEC firms with the ability to truly transform their business and reach their full potential.”
