Our new release of ADR 2010 will have some great new features! I'm really excited about Digital Signatures, PDF Viewing, the Save Markup Summary details. This will make thing much easier in the electronic plan review process.
Thanks to Joseph Volker for posting this info for us! Please check out Beyond the Paper for additional ADR news.
If you've been following this blog a while, then you're used to a steady stream of pithy insights about collaboration, the building industry, and random Internet musings -- from a team of highly educated but barely professional correspondents.
Well, you might have read the news, but if you didn't, the short answer is that Autodesk unfortunately laid off a few people in the economic downturn and has been restructuring itself.
Of course we work for Autodesk, so this impacts us directly. Still I know you might be looking for an update so let me assure you that we're still here, working hard on CPM and DWF and all the other wonderful things we try so hard to produce for you guys.
It's just been a little weird around here lately. But we are wasting no time getting back to form, and in fact are already sprinting forward towards new releases, new technologies, and new markets. More to come on that very soon.
I hope this economic environment isn't hurting your business too badly. I have spoken with several of my clients over the last six months and most of them are, well, pretty worried. A lot of my good friends have been laid off, their companies bankrupt or closing its doors. Autodesk has shrunk, pay has been cut or frozen, and our stock is in the tank. Did I miss anything?
It's tough right now, but my attitude is this: every day that you take a breath is a good day, so get up, get yourself to work (in your old job, in a new one, or on something else), and keep planning for the future. It's going to be a bright one, even if the present is a bit dark.
