GiveMePower Corporation Drives Competition in Design-Build Cad MarketExtends the use of CAD into emerging business engineering and management solutions (November 08, 2001)
Leveraging exceptional compatibility with market leader AutoCAD, by Autodesk, Inc., GiveMePower products serve traditional design-build markets, and through unique developer partnering programs, extends the use of CAD into emerging business engineering and management solutions.
Utilizing core technology from FelixCAD, a popular CAD outside North America with over 60,000 users in 40 countries, GiveMePower spent 2 years re-designing their new PowerCAD(R) Professional system to squeeze 100% of AutoCAD's functionality in about 90% of standard use cases - for less than 20% of the cost. Currently PowerCAD Professional sells for $395 with AutoCAD retailing at $3,295.
"Although AutoCAD products are justifiably known for their excellence and have been widely accepted as the industry standard, the cost is simply prohibitive for many users," says Bill Walton, Founder and CEO of GiveMePower. "The market is ready for what we're about to deliver."
PowerCAD will be distributed through the company's retail products division. Patterned after Microsoft developer initiatives, a scalable component-based software development system called PowerENGINE(TM), is available at even lower cost to commercial, corporate and government clients for integration into tailor-made solutions of their own design.
"Millions of dollars have been spent protecting the existing investment of millions of CAD users. By redefining the cost and licensing mechanism for professional CAD, we are making advanced vector graphics available to a mass market we feel is currently under-served by our competitors," says Walton. "We plan to be the undisputed price-performance leader in the market. "
With over 300 two and three dimensional commands, PowerCAD Professional virtually eliminates the learning curve for AutoCAD familiar operators. By providing complementary technologies versus replacement technologies, the full line of PowerCAD products can operate as independent CAD solutions or work in shared PowerCAD/AutoCAD environments. PowerCAD serves as the foundation for a broad set of scheduled vertical market solutions currently under development.
GiveMePower Corp is a rapidly emerging software and services company delivering price-performance leading desktop, portable and wireless solutions for the multi-billion dollar design-build industry.
