Adapx Announces New Capturx Customers and Hands-On Lab at Autodesk University 2008

Capturx Software Helps Architects, Engineers, and Contractors Speed Design Updates and Improve Change Documentation Using Autodesk Applications, Microsoft® Excel, and Digital Pens

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2008) - Adapx (, the company that is changing the way architects, engineers, and contractors collaborate and collect field data, today announced new customers and Hands-On Lab sessions at Autodesk University at the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, NV. The Hands-On Lab will be co-presented with Autodesk in two sessions on December 3 and will show attendees how Capturx for Autodesk Design Review and Capturx forms for Microsoft® Excel can speed design review and improve change documentation.

Deployed by leading engineering, architecture, and construction firms such as Theiss Construction and KPFF Consulting Engineers, Capturx solutions help teams keep projects on schedule, avoid costly mistakes and rework as well as improve documentation of issues and changes. Capturx supports projects designed with AutoCAD, Revit platform for Building Information Modeling (BIM), and other Autodesk products through seamless integration with Autodesk DWF software. Teams print or plot designs on ordinary paper and mark them up with digital pens, leaving a physical record while also automatically integrating redlines in the original DWF files.

Capturx Forms for Excel automates punch lists and change orders using forms designed in Excel, ordinary paper, and digital pens. Handwritten entries on forms from multiple team members are automatically aggregated into the original Excel files with data matching the original Excel formatting. Teams get a physical paper record of changes and immediate access to digital data which can be used in Excel for reporting or integrated into other databases, punchlisting, or backend applications.

KPFF Consulting Engineers, one of the largest engineering firms in the U.S., is using Capturx for Autodesk Design Review to help with some of their mixed use commercial high rise projects. Steve Voorhees, senior engineer, said, "We're impressed with Capturx because it works the way we do -- designs are printed on standard large format paper or regular 11X17 laser printers and then marked up with digital pens in the field. But the real magic happens when we connect to our computers -- all of the data is instantly digitized and seamlessly integrated into Autodesk Design Review and Revit structures. With Capturx, our teams don't have to wait for paper markups to be couriered, faxed, or re-keyed which means we can reduce the number and extent of change orders as well as make faster design updates."
