“I am here to stay and will continue in Bricsys” – Erik de Keyser after the Hexagon acquisition
After the mega news of Bricsys acquisition by Hexagon, CEO Erik de Keyser assured the audience the he is here to stay and is not going anywhere, and will continue to steer the Bricsys ship.
Hexagon’s strategy is to acquire companies that offer them complementary capabilities and reach into markets and industry segments and this acquisition is to groom and build the BricsCAD brand to new heights. Our understanding and assurance is that the existing team will continue to work and build on the BricsCAD brand while new initiatives and roadmap from Hexagon will help the product scale new heights and reach better visibility and scale.
Rick Allen of Hexagon, in his address earlier to Sales Partners and Developers, where the first announcement of this acquisition was made, told us that one of the key reasons why Hexagon chose BricsCAD is because of the high level of API compatibility that it offered. The other reasons, of course, is the product roadmap, technical support and stability that the product offered.
