In Their Own Words
“I received a call from Josh Belden, Account Executive, in 2017 explaining the type of services and partnership we would develop by switching our AEC Collection and AutoCAD Civil 3D seats over to ATG,” said Valerie McCaw, President of VSM Engineering, LLC. “We previously paid $1000 for training with another reseller, which was a lot of money for my firm of seven. Our people missed some major concepts due to pieces missing from the training. When ATG offered the assistance of AEC Technical Specialist Jason Artley, it was a huge time-saver and accelerated our workflows tremendously. We utilized the LIVE360 training, which allowed us to go back through and re-watch the trainings.” Jason explained, “I created a customized Civil 3D template that focused on workflows for a project VSM was working on, along with layers and object styles to help automate their design process. It was a really cool thing to be a part of, considering their entire firm utilized it.”
“Josh also helped explain to us that the AEC Collection was perfect for automating engineering. We were encountering some issues with drafters not understanding the engineering side of the software and the AEC Collection resolved this problem in a way that was time-efficient and immediately profitable for us. The value add-ons that I have received from ATG, whether it’s the software, Global eTraining, or Team Augmentation services make me feel like I have a true partner in helping my firm grow. ATG is an excellent choice for an Autodesk Platinum reseller,” said Valerie.
