AFMG Assumes German Distribution for EASE, EASERA and SysTune

AFMG Office Building AFMG will assume the German distribution of its software packages EASE, EASERA and SysTune as of January 2011. This conscious decision will join sales of AFMG´s complete software products in the hands of the maker, thus greatly simplifying the approach for customers in German speaking countries.

Former German sales partner audioone will continue sales and support through March of this year to guarantee a smooth transition. "Our relations with audioone are very cordial." remarks Stefan Feistel, managing director of AFMG. "We have made this move with great accord to provide continuous and extensive support to our customers now and in future. All our software from audio measurement through to acoustical simulation will now be available from one distributor."

Historically AFMG has been the distributor of their applications EASE Focus, EASE Address and EASE SpeakerLab for a long time. Additionally several interesting new versions and programs will be available soon – all of them with groundbreaking improvements in the fields of acoustical room simulation and calibration of sound systems.
