ALEXANDRIA, Va., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CADD Microsystems, an Autodesk Platinum Partner, today announced that it has launched the CADD Community, an online customer-only portal that integrates on-demand training, applications and extensions, videos and additional value-added content exclusively for its customers.
The CADD Community was developed from a vision to provide customers access to not only on-demand training, but also a wealth of resources built over more than 25 years in the industry. This vision came to fruition through a partnership with Global eTraining, the world's leading technical training platform for on-demand Autodesk training. Global eTraining excels at reaching students with varied learning styles through text, audio, demos, exercises, and videos, engaging all the senses and anchoring learning with action.
Through the CADD Community, CADD Microsystems is able to provide its customers with online, on-demand training for Autodesk products. In this deadline-driven industry, having access to learning resources when and where it's needed it is vital to completing projects on time and on budget. These on-demand courses complement CADD Microsystems' award-winning classroom training, which is thoroughly vetted by Autodesk, and was recently rated by students as the top training center in the Mid-Atlantic region.
"We did exhaustive research to make sure we selected the best education partner and found that Global eTraining offered a true learning management system, providing powerful reporting features and assessment capabilities on an integrated platform, which are all critical components of professional development programs," said Susan Thomson, CFO of CADD Microsystems. "Not all customers have the same learning and education needs, and this gives us more flexibility in creating custom solutions that uniquely address each of our clients' professional development plans."
"Not only that, but we've built this training offering around the CADD Community, which gives our customers access to additional content, expertise and resources that we have built over the last 25 years," Thomson continued.
"CADD Microsystems' commitment to customer success is one of the reasons we are excited to partner with them, and believe it's a true differentiator for them," said Steve Wenzel, CTO at Global eTraining. "They see our on-demand training services and the CADD Community as part of a comprehensive education offering and overall success plan for their customers. We are working on some great customer programs together, blending cutting-edge technology, online training experience and industry expertise to ensure CADD Microsystems continues to help their customers achieve their professional development goals."
The combination of classroom training coupled with the new on-demand offering and additional training programs plays into CADD Microsystems' philosophy on professional education and development being vital to the success of any organization.
"We look at training as just one part of an overall professional development plan," explained Thomson. "We're not just helping our customers train their employees. We are helping them recruit quality people, retain their employees, and open up new business opportunities through professional development. These are all proven benefits of corporate development programs and we are thrilled to be able to expand our offerings in this area."
