MEET THE PARTNERS

Saturday, July 22, 2017

Partners

  

  

In 1990, AMR commenced its association with the architectural and engineering (AE) community – by sourcing and implementing project management and accounting systems. In these early years we worked with a system called Wind2. By the mid-1990s our AE product expertise expanded to Sema4. Deltek's flagship product for AE and professional services industries, Deltek Vision, was added to our repertoire in 2001.

Through the years we have assisted hundreds of AE and similar organisations evaluate, select, and implement project-based information systems – becoming the leading firm of its kind in Canada – and developing many long-standing professional and personal relationships.

We’re fortunate to have a number of distinguished organisations as business partners. They play significant roles in helping AMR achieve our primary objectives – and ensuring we provide customers with the best possible solutions and service levels. It’s our pleasure to profile them in this area of our website.
