Southwire Releases New BEM Electrical Software Solution

CARROLLTON, Ga. — Southwire Company, LLC announced it has
signed an agreement with Applied Software, a member of the Autodesk Reseller
Network, to be the exclusive reseller of Southwire’s new line of building information
modeling software products designed to greatly improve back office and field
productivity.

Southwire BEM™ (Building Electrical Modeling) software will help the
electrical industry by taking what has always been a very manual process and
automating it. The BEM solution is built on the software platform Southwire recently
acquired from GSN Technologies. “BEM is a comprehensive and fully-integrated
solution that delivers streamlined automation to every step of the installation process –
starting from the cable takeoff, through the feeder schedule, installation planning and
ultimately, through all of the required procurement steps,” explained Jerry Nestler,
founder of GSN Technologies and Southwire BEM technical expert. “BEM fills a critical
gap within BIM (Building Information Modeling),” added Nestler.

Southwire has been partnering with its customers to better understand the opportunities
that software and electronic solutions provide to the wiring process. Prior to introducing
its new BEM Software Solutions, Southwire spent time enhancing the company’s ability
to provide software and other electronic solutions through its mobile
apps and line of tools.

“The BEM software solution is a major jump forward for building information modeling
and fills the gap between raceway physical design, cable takeoffs, and installation
planning,” said Jeff Herrin, president of Southwire’s Industrial Division. “The partnership
with Applied Software is a logical next step to our becoming a leading partner for design
and installation services for our industrial channel partners and their customers.”

“The addition of a true electrical software solution further extends our investment in
developing a full suite of solutions designed to improve productivity, profitability, and
safety for electrical contractors,” added Norman Adkins, president of Southwire’s
Electrical Division. “We are excited about the potential this investment has to take this
new capability into the field and back office in a way like never before.”

Applied Software, in conjunction with its partner network, will provide nationwide sales
coverage, training, and support for the product line.
