Like many of you, the Ideate Software team recently returned from Autodesk University energized by successes, excited about possibilities, and yes, a bit exhausted.
Along with several of my colleagues, I attended learning sessions to hear about what’s new at Autodesk, discussed Ideate Software solutions with Revit users and celebrated with customers at our Customer Appreciation Party.
In addition to demonstrating our Revit productivity tools, we were honored to welcome the following top industry influencers to our booth to share their experiences with our software and thank them for their outstanding support and exemplary use of our solutions:
- Brian Mackey, BD Mackey Consulting
- Duygu Yenerim, Page
- Jeremy Skalitzky, Eppstein Uhen Architects
- Nirva Fereshetian, CBT Architects
- Veronica Quintero, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates
- Graham Condit, Skanska
Many attendees said that they appreciated hearing industry professionals talk about real projects with real deadlines and the potential fiascos averted with Ideate Software tools.

We also gave away no-cost, one-year, single-user subscriptions to IdeateApps; offered a hard-to-resist “get-to-know-us” incentive on a single, six-month stand-alone subscription to all five of our products; and had several prize draws for the purpose of generating fresh ideas.
For me, our most interesting promotion was the one where we asked daily Revit users to describe a Revit workflow they would like to see automated. As the Director of Software Development, I’m always seeking ideas that address the needs of AECO professionals, and the best way to get those ideas is to ask the people directly involved. We got a lot of responses, and we will be pleased to announce the winners soon. We’re already discussing the possibility of including them in future releases.
