SolidProfessor, a SolidWorks Solution Partner, has developed a custom training and support solution integrated inside the SolidWorks design environment that compliments the first class training and support services offered by CATI. Now CATI training and support services will include on-demand multimedia content developed by SolidProfessor’s team of certified SolidWorks Professionals and Instructors. CATI customers will have access to SolidProfessor’s proprietary Learning Management System (LMS) that includes quick search functionality; real time course updates, semi-monthly Tips and Tricks, automatic progress tracking, a custom course builder, online testing and reporting, and exercises with downloadable part files. In addition to the LMS, SolidProfessor includes the first of its kind “Search- On-Demand” productivity add-in for SolidWorks that allows users to access training at the click of a mouse without ever leaving the SolidWorks design environment. Installed as an add-in and accessible through the SolidWorks Task Pane, SolidProfessor’s new “Search-On-Demand” enhancement for SolidWorks 2007 makes it easier than ever for CAD Professionals to get their design questions answered with the least disruption to their work flow.
David Ptak, President of SolidProfessor remarks, “We’re very excited to be able to contribute to CATI’s overall training and support program by customizing our solution to integrate with the services they already offer. Today’s design professional requires a blended training and support solution where on-demand knowledge augments the live class experience. Quick answers to best practices are key to the productivity gains customer’s demand. Working together with CATI we look forward to continuing to develop innovative solutions to help their customers stay ahead of the curve.”

A key component of this formula is the ability to extract as much value as possible from technology purchases, both upfront and over time. Our customers have stated that direct access to technical content at their desktop is a requirement, not a luxury. When combined with CATI training and support, our partnership with SolidProfessor fulfills that request.” said Rich Werneth, President of CATI.
