Recognized in Planning & Management Software category for BQE CORE ARCHITECT Software

TORRANCE, Calif., Nov. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- BQE Software, Inc., a leader in project management and accounting solutions for architects and other professional services firms, was recognized in late September as a Best of Products 2020 by The Architect's Newspaper, a leading publication for news and cultural reporting on the built urban environment. The publication takes submissions each year for products and services for the industry and selects winners based on innovation, aesthetic, performance, and value to their readership. BQE CORE ARCHITECT was chosen as the winner for the Planning & Management Software category.

The BQE CORE ARCHITECT software platform and mobile app helps architectural firms with time and expense tracking, billing, project and budget tracking, accounting, and project management. The solution gives architectural firms the capability to easily track time and budgets, predict profitability, and manage invoices and percent-complete billing processes.

"Our mission is to continue improving the work lives of architectural firms," says Steven Burns, FAIA, Chief Creative Officer of BQE. "We do so by allowing users to quickly and easily receive insights into their projects, employees, and businesses. These insights lead to more efficient and effective business decisions. We look forward to continuing to provide the best and most user friendly products for the marketplace."

"This is a big advancement in business management technology, and essentially a one-stop-shop for firms," says jury member Tom Kundig, Principal of the internationally acclaimed architectural firm Olson Kundig. "It's exciting to think about being able to do so much across the firm with just one product."

The Best of Products awards from The Architect's Newspaper (AN) offers designers, manufacturers, and other service providers for the architectural industry the opportunity to reach their audience of one million subscribers, if selected. Submissions are reviewed by a jury of industry professionals and AN editors. The digital publication with all the winners is available now, with a print version debuting in December 2020.
