Endeavors Technology's On-Demand Applications Technology Now Delivering Autodesk's Revit 6 Software for Full-Product Trial 

IRVINE, Calif. & CAMBRIDGE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 25, 2004-- 

- Autodesk Revit is latest product to be trialed by customers via Endeavors' on-demand streaming software delivery and management solution 

Endeavors Technology today announces 
Autodesk has launched a new trial site to stream the latest version of its building information modeling software, Autodesk(R) Revit(R) 6, to customers and prospects over the Web using Endeavors' AppExpress secure, advanced on-demand technology. The site is located at www.autodesk.com/streamingtrial-revit. 

Autodesk selected Endeavors' AppExpress product as the optimum method of providing customers and prospects with full-product evaluations of Revit 6 software because AppExpress is able to support concurrent trials with no application conflicts or degradation in performance. 

Autodesk Revit 6 provides architecture, interior design, and design-build firms with a competitive business advantage by assisting them in securing new projects, retaining existing clients, and increasing profitability. New features in Revit 6 enable building industry professionals to develop compelling design proposals more quickly than with traditional design and drafting software, while enhancing design decision support and client communication once projects are under way. This latest release of the industry's only design platform that is purpose-built for building information modeling also provides added support for design team collaboration and enhancements to improve construction document coordination and quality. 

Endeavors' on-demand technology has been in use by Autodesk for three years, beginning with AutoCAD(R) 2002 and continuing through to AutoCAD(R) 2004 and Discreet(R) 3ds max(R) software. As an early adopter of AppExpress technology, Autodesk now views the product as the optimum delivery mechanism when launching trialware or implementing marketing initiatives to expand its customer base. The vendor has realized triple-digit ROIs from AppExpress based on increased sales, shortened sales cycles and lower launch costs. Case studies on Endeavors' and Autodesk's successful trialware union have been published by Microsoft and Intel. 

With the addition of the Autodesk Revit 6 product trial, Endeavors is fast creating a sound and repeatable business model for ISVs looking for a piracy-free, trackable method of putting full product software in the hands of prospects in the shortest timeframe, at reduced cost.
