In 2022, we once again achieved our goal of quickly aligning our Ideate Software solutions with the latest version of Revit (and 3 previous releases) while introducing new products and features that respond to requests from Revit users:
- Perform time-intensive tasks in the background with Ideate Automation 2.0
- Review 2D annotations and clashes with Ideate Annotate, a new tool within IdeateApps
- Find Revit elements by their respective tag values with Ideate Explorer
- Maintain model health more easily with Ideate BIMLink, Ideate Explorer, Ideate Annotate, and Ideate Automation using our Revit Model Health Check
- Review Revit Parameter information with Ideate StyleManager and Ideate BIMLink
- Publish PDF information with ease using Ideate Automation

An Outstanding Customer Experience Delivered by an Oustanding Team
The leadership at Ideate Software knows that our success is based on our tremendous employees who take great pride in delivering value to customers, coworkers, the company, and the AECO industry overall.
To thank our employees for their hard work and commitment, the leadership team was pleased to host an employee retreat in Hawaii this year. Team members and family members reconnected after long absences or met in person for the first time and spent some quality time getting to know each other. This team-building event recognized the contributions of the team and energized everyone for continued opportunities to develop and support innovative software for Revit users around the world.
As we close out the year, we send sincere thanks to Ideate Software employees, customers, consultants, partners, and others who helped us achieve our 2022 goals. We look forward to 2023 being another year of collaboration, innovation, and success.
