February 7, 2007

Setauket, New York & Bangalore, India – February 07, 2007 – Aurigo Software technologies today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Microsoft to jointly offer solutions to the AEC industry. The solution is a web based construction ERP Suite developed through integrating Aurigo BRIX, Microsoft Project Server and Microsoft Dynamics AX. Infrastructure, Real Estate and Facilities Management professionals can now gain access to a comprehensive 360 degree business automation solution that caters specifically to their vertical needs. The solution helps streamline the construction process from land acquisition and estimation to project fulfillment by connecting project sites, enterprise and supply chains all on a single unified platform.

“When compared with other ERP solutions in the market place, we believe that the Microsoft-Aurigo solution fits into a sweet spot where construction houses are demanding higher scalability, dependability and cost effectiveness. What users also get is software that is surprisingly friendly to use since it is based on the familiar Microsoft Outlook user interface design”, said Balaji Sreenivasan, CEO, Aurigo Software.

Aurigo and Microsoft have co-invested significant time and resources into building seamless connectors between the three product suites. Most solutions in the market deliver solutions rigid construction management workflows which offer little to no flexibility, or enterprise resource planning solutions which need extensive customization. The Aurigo-Microsoft joint offering solves this problem through BRIX providing the complex construction management workflows spanning the critical processes of land management, estimation, construction management, inspection and facility management. Microsoft Dynamics AX provides the framework for a robust ERP solution bringing the necessary Financial Management, CRM, Supply chain and HR automation abilities to the combined solution offering.

Further, BRIX’s hot pluggable and dynamically loadable modules help for faster deployment scenarios. Aurigo therefore has a jump-start advantage factor where the Aurigo-Microsoft solution is already far down the road in terms of customer needs.
