September 8, 2009

Setauket, NY & Bangalore, – September 08, 2009 – Aurigo Software Technologies Inc, a Microsoft Gold certified partner and leading software products and solutions provider in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) vertical, strengthens its presence in Middle East and North Africa (MENA) regions through its recent partnership with Right Group and Synergy Software System. Both the partners will market, implement and support BRIX 2009 across the region. Right Group has offices in Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Synergy Software Systems has offices in Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE and Yemen. Through these value added reseller arrangements, Aurigo will be able to offer end-to-end construction ERP solution to its customers and expand its reach in the region.

BRIX 2009, the latest version of Aurigo’s construction management and inspection system, was recently awarded ‘Certified For Microsoft Dynamics’* (CFMD), Microsoft Corp.’s highest standard for partner-developed software. BRIX 2009 is an Industry add-on to Microsoft Dynamics AX and the combined solution makes a powerful Industry-ready ERP solution for the Architecture, Engineering and Construction Industries worldwide. Aurigo’s solution, BRIX 2009, is targeted at Project Owners, Real Estate Developers, Government Agencies, Project management companies, Architecture & Interior Design Firms and General Contractors. With BRIX 2009, they can manage a variety of construction related activity including infrastructure development, Roads and Highways, Airports, real estate, ship building and even power plants.

With attractive business opportunities and liberal government policies, the MENA construction market is witnessing tremendous growth in the construction sector. According to a recent report published by ACWmag, there are now 3339 projects estimated to be worth $2.8 trillion underway in the region. Residential construction comprises a perhaps surprisingly large share of the region’s construction activity. Thereby creating a huge potential for automation of land management and facility management, automation of project cost estimation and other construction management processes.
Balaji Sreenivasan, founder and CEO of Aurigo Software Technologies Inc said, “Our partnership with Right Group and Synergy Software System will help us further strengthen and expand our presence in Middle East and Africa region. With large projects and higher infrastructure spends, MENA region has been one of the fastest growing construction markets. With the new and improved BRIX 2009, we intend to penetrate deeper to scale and attain market share in Middle East and Africa.

“Synergy Software Systems provides integrated end to end solutions across the region for the construction real estate and PSA sectors.
