D.L. Howell and HowellKline Surveying Strategically Employ Synergis Engineering Design Solutions Civil 3D Success Program to Improve Processes and Cut Drafting Time in Half

QUAKERTOWN, Pa., Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The Synergis Engineering Design Solutions Division of Synergis Technologies, Inc. today announced that it has helped Pennsylvania-based D.L. Howell and Associates, Inc. and HowellKline Surveying, LLC transition from Autodesk Land Desktop 2004 to AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008 software with its Civil 3D Success Program. Through the unique program Synergis certified experts provided on-site custom training and implementation services to help the company achieve success with AutoCAD Civil 3D, from initial assessment through post-training mentoring. The Synergis program allowed the 16-person design team at D.L. Howell and HowellKline to fully adopt new technology without bringing workflow to a stop, thus minimizing its impact on current design efforts.

"This software is not something we can learn from the book. We wouldn't be able to make this transition by ourselves -- Synergis' training was absolutely essential," said John Hubickey, System Administrator/Designer III, for D.L. Howell and Associates, Inc. "To be up and running at the end of our first three months and solely using Civil 3D at the end of the next three months is pretty darn aggressive and we're right on track to our goal. Within six to 12 months, we expect to be able to cut drafting and revision time in half, greatly improve our accuracy and do fewer manual revisions, further helping to reduce errors. Because of Autodesk software and Synergis training, our new process will help us get our jobs done better and faster. We'll be able to take on bigger jobs with same amount of CAD people."

AutoCAD Civil 3D gives D.L. Howell ( http://www.dlhowell.com) and HowellKline ( www.howellkline.com) -- which provide complete civil engineering, land planning, environmental and surveying services -- a streamlined workflow and improved collaboration capabilities between the surveying and engineering segments of its firm to increase productivity, stay coordinated throughout projects, and deliver better results for its clients. In addition, D.L. Howell and HowellKline are also treating the transition as an opportunity to adopt national CAD standards.
