Helsinki, Finland (June 27, 2005) -- Graphisoft N.V., a publicly listed company in Budapest exchange has announced that it will acquire Finland based Dynamic System Solutions Oy (DSS). Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

DSS has been very successful with their software for schedule planning and project control products (DynaProject).
