Autodesk Reseller & BIM Services

Microdesk was founded in 1994 as an Autodesk Reseller with a simple mission – to assist Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Owner/Operators (AECO) and GIS firms with overcoming the challenges of implementing and utilizing design, construction and geospatial technology. Today, that mission still holds true, and Microdesk remains a cutting edge technology consultancy with 13 offices worldwide.

Our relationships with industry leading software manufacturers, including Autodesk, IBM, Bluebeam, Panzura, Microsoft, and Eagle Point, make us the most qualified and comprehensive provider of professional services to the industry. We are a Platinum Autodesk Reseller, Platinum Bluebeam Reseller, and an Authorized Solutions Training Center for Autodesk. Microdesk has been awarded numerous Autodesk honors, including the 2015 Platinum Club award for Highest Percentage Sales Growth in 2014,  2013 Platinum Club award for Top Overall New Business Growth, and in 2012 was named Autodesk North American Partner of the Year. Additionally, we are a member of the Autodesk and ESRI Developer Networks with over 160 Technology Consultants dedicated to the Architectural, Engineering, Construction, Asset Management, FM and GIS marketplaces.
