Winning this award is really an example of the long and fruitful partnership with Graphisoft that both companies have built over the last 30 years.
Amy Senew, Vice President of Global Sales for Graphisoft said “Central Innovation was selected from ~100 partners globally because they consistently make a difference. In 2021, their strong business results, coupled with continued investment in Graphisoft and demonstrated leadership as innovators, made them the obvious choice for this recognition. We are proud of and grateful for Central Innovation’s professionalism and admirable representation of our products and services with customers throughout Australia and New Zealand.”
Today, Managing Director of Central Innovation ANZ (Ci), Mike Russell, said “Our businesses have won the prestigious Distributor of the Year through the New Zealand business in 2013 and Australia in 2014. Now, the combined Ci ANZ businesses have been announced Distributor of the Year 2021 by Graphisoft. It’s really a great achievement by the Team and an acknowledgement of their hard work.”
The award recognises the service that Ci has provided overall in Australia and New Zealand but specifically calls out the Ci Team‘s success in promoting Open BIM in Australia and New Zealand, providing excellent sales and customer service, and successfully helping many customers in Australia and New Zealand modernise their practices and achieve design freedom by using the world’s leading Open BIM architectural authoring software, Archicad, by Graphisoft with our exclusive Ci Tools.
