GRAPHISOFT is the pioneer and leader in developing Virtual Buildingâ„¢ solutions. For 25 years, GRAPHISOFT has been empowering the broadest community of architects to deliver model based projects that are better designed, more predictable to construct and less expensive to operate.
Since 2007 GRAPHISOFT has been part of the Nemetschek Group.
GRAPHISOFT is firmly established in the world's three largest AEC markets: the United States, Germany and Japan; yet approximately one-half of its revenues come from smaller markets often neglected by other companies.
GRAPHISOFT's global experience and presence carry an even deeper strategic value as the world's building and software markets transcend national boundaries. Whereas most of GRAPHISOFT's competitors have relied historically on their domestic markets and tailored their products to domestic architectural standards and market priorities, GRAPHISOFT has quickly learned to identify and respect market differences. In the rapidly evolving world economy, companies such as GRAPHISOFT are ideally poised to exploit opportunities in local markets around the globe.
Close alliance with local partners
GRAPHISOFT relies on its network of independent distributors to meet current and future business goals. Their trust and investment allow GRAPHISOFT to focus on product quality, and their efforts in establishing solid markets for GRAPHISOFT products throughout the world are the cornerstone of the company's success.
GRAPHISOFT works with dedicated distributors in 80 countries and hundreds of Value-Added Resellers (VARs) and Systems Integrators who ensure that customers receive support and personal attention wherever they are.

GRAPHISOFT's â€žbiggest not-so-secret weapon is its staff of developers [who] focus enormous talent on a niche, which Westerners can't match.â€
Jonathan B. Levine, Business Week, USA
â€žIt's passion, and a good deal of business sense, that helped turn GRAPHISOFT into a global player.â€
