BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ARCHIBUS, Inc., the #1 developer in the world of real estate, infrastructure, and facilities management software, today announces its inclusion in Software Magazine’s Software 500 ranking of the world’s largest software and service providers, now in its 32nd year. ARCHIBUS, Inc. is ranked #55 on the list, with total annual software and services activities exceeding $2.3 billion.
“The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers, and IT staff research and create the short list of business partners,” says John P. Desmond, editor. “It is a quick reference of vendor viability. And the online version, now posted at www.softwaremag.com, is searchable by category, making it what we call the online catalog to enterprise software.”
The Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world’s largest software and services suppliers, targeting medium to large enterprises, their IT professionals, software developers, and business managers involved in software and services purchasing.
“Our prominence on the Software 500 list is clearly an indication of the growing importance of real estate, infrastructure, and facilities management software in helping organizations of every type, and every location around the world, achieve their strategic goals,” said ARCHIBUS, Inc., Founder/President and CEO and founder Bruce K. Forbes.“
“ARCHIBUS research and development efforts, by far the largest and most extensive in the industry, are guided by input from the ARCHIBUS Federated Eco-system of Business Partners, ARCHIBUS Solution Centers worldwide, and affiliated software developers, as well as more than 7 million ARCHIBUS users who manage over 18 million buildings and properties from more than 44,000 customer sites,” added Forbes. “Organizations using ARCHIBUS continue to report real estate, infrastructure, and facilities-related cost savings as high as 34% and, subsequently, are able to invest 5% of these savings in environmental sustainability initiatives — making them remarkable global citizens.”
ARCHIBUS addresses over 90 application areas and has seamless connectors to over 5,000 legacy systems and disruptive technologies. Some of the most rapid growth areas within the ARCHIBUS portfolio of offerings include: expansion of the ARCHIBUS Mobile Framework™; the ARCHIBUS Performance Metrics Framework™; and Enterprise Information Modeling with BIM 4.0™. These product capabilities enable intelligent asset lifecycle management, improve environmental sustainability and compliance, increase human capital productivity and profitability, and more.

The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue from the 2013 fiscal year. This includes revenue from software licenses, maintenance and support, training, and software-related services, and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware. Financial information is gathered by a survey prepared by Rockport Custom Publishing, LLC, using public documents and company input.
