First let me start off saying I love SoftPlan and have for the last 25+ years however more and more these days I find myself competing with AutoCAD based firms for clients.
Often when companies find out that I don't use AutoCAD they won't even talk to me. AutoDESK has done such a good job marketing their products they have become the generic names for CAD and anything that is not AutoCAD is just crap!
Tech schools teach AutoCAD so young people start their careers expecting to use AutoCAD or worse yet Revit in the work place so businesses convert to AutoDESK because it is easy to get previously trained employees not because AutoCAD is the more appropriate software for the task at hand.
Does anyone have any suggestions how I can compete with the "AutoCAD" mind set?
I am so darned frustrated, how can we fight it?
