Graebert, the software developers of the rising ARES Commander-based DWG native CAD technology, and solutions, has announced this week it is celebrating four successful years of business in India and double-digit growth in one of the largest economies in the world.

A Team of 40 and Growing

Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Robert Gräbert, invited developers from Germany, Russia, and India to meet in Grabber India’s new headquarters in Noida to discuss future development plans for Graebert’s CAD technologies.

Dr. Gräbert noted that four years ago the company opened its Indian office with a small team of 10 developers. Now that office has over 40 full time software professionals. The development center in India is closely working with two other development centers, one back in the main offices in Berlin and the other in Russia. All three offices are collaborating on the most important strategic efforts in the company.

Mr. Rajash Garg, Managing Director of Graebert India explained how Graebert is attracting talented developers highly motivated to work at Graebert to shape the future of CAD with Mobile and Cloud CAD technologies. The pace of growth (400 percent) at Graebert’s Indian office says a lot about Graebert’s overall growth as a company.

Strong Demand for ARES Commander in India

The Berlin-based software developer has announced that when it closes its fiscal year in March, Graebert India is expecting to close with a 80% growth in sales of ARES Commander, Graebert’s highly competitive, native DWG file CAD system for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The company also announced the Indian market specifically is showing a growing interest for the company’s mobile and cloud technologies and solutions.

Architosh Analysis

In 2010 India made the list of the world’s 10 largest economies entering at 9th with %1.7 trillion USD, half the size of the 4th largest economy, Germany, at $3.4 trillion. In 2016 India is projected to rise to 7th largest world economy at $2.5 trillion USD, the same size as France and just a wee bit smaller than the United Kingdom. By 2020 India’s economy is projected to be 6th in the world at $3.6 trillion USD, far larger than 10th place Russia at $2.1 trillion and ahead of France.

Like China, India is a mega opportunity as part of the developing world in the far East. Graebert’s foothold in this economy looks excellent for growth at both the development office level and at the customer level. With very competitive pricing and what will likely be the company that has the most flexible licensing options in the industry, emerging markets like India make be a boon for growth of their platform.

In just four years Graebert has thrust itself onto the world stage for computer-aided design (CAD) software with leading partnerships with Dassault, Corel, Onshape and others. Its upcoming ARES Kudo technology will bring full, native DWG CAD drawing to the cloud through the web browser, while its ARES mobile technology runs on Android and soon iOS.
