Autodesk will continue to support and transition Autodesk FMDesktop customers to FM:Systems. Under the terms of the agreement FM:Systems will provide Autodesk FMDesktop customers with extended support as well as an option to migrate to the firm’s FM:Interact Workplace Management Suite.

There's even a special web site created for current FMDesktop users to get more information on FM:Systems.
