All BIM solutions be it Archicad or Revit are still in phases of development. The question I ask each vendor - How good is a BIM solution to me if my sub-consultants are yet not on Archicad or any other BIM Solution ? One of the main advantages of BIM is that you can integrate all services and make changes in an instant. If my plumbing and HVAC consultants still use 2d drafting what use will it be in a BIM software.

BTW from what I hear Archicad is drastically reducing prices in India.
