July 19, 2012 - Mt. ZION, IL. – Hagerman & Company, a 28-year Value Added Reseller (VAR) serving the Midwest, South and California, announced today that it has earned the new Autodesk Simulation Specialization designation for VARs from Autodesk, Inc., a world leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software.
As an Autodesk Consulting Specialized Partner, Hagerman & Company has made a significant investment in their technical staff, has provided customer references and a solid consulting business plan, and has demonstrated a high level of knowledge and support to customers in manufacturing.
“We are pleased and very proud to add this to our resume for achievement and expertise in the industry,” said Dennis Hagerman, CEO and chairman of Hagerman & Company. “As a company that strives for the highest level of service to support the products we sell, we welcome this opportunity to provide our community of customers with the Autodesk standard for excellence.”
Autodesk Simulation software delivers a fast, highly accurate and flexible approach to predict, optimize and validate designs earlier in the design process. The portfolio of products serves as a comprehensive set of simulation software tools that are easy to integrate into each phase of the product development process — from mechanical stress, vibration and motion to computational fluid dynamics, plastic injection molding and multiphysics.
“We recognize that simulation is the next logical step in the manufacturing CAD world,” said Forrest Judd, Hagerman & Company solutions engineer. “While the majority of our mechanical customers currently use 3D designs, they are still primarily using it for communications and basic design purposes only.”
The new Autodesk Partner Specializations enable partners to highlight and brand their expertise in delivering services in key industry areas. By completing the required curriculum and training, as well as meeting required levels of service and standards set by Autodesk, Hagerman & Company has demonstrated what it means to be a trusted adviser to Autodesk customers throughout the world. Hagerman & Company has also earned specialization status in Consulting, Process Plant, Autodesk PLM 360 and Autodesk Factory Design.
Judd said, “We see the Autodesk simulation tools as a way to bring Simulation to the engineer’s average desktop (where appropriate) while simultaneously providing advanced simulation capabilities to specialized simulation experts. We’ll leverage our large existing 3D customer base to show them the value that simulation can bring to new and existing design processes.”
