Avatech Experiences Increased Demand for Dynamic Modeling Services
Avatech Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: AVSO), the nationwide technology expert for design, engineering, and facilities management, announced today that the company is experiencing greater demand for its professional services offering as an increased number of civil engineering firms adopt 3D dynamic modeling. Leading engineering companies like Marbach, Brady & Weaver, as well as Hanson Professional Services Inc. have selected Avatech Solutions to implement AutoCAD Civil 3D design technology.
Dynamic modeling presents a completely new design approach, which requires a review of CAD standards, an overhaul of current workflows, and intensive training. The benefits are many, because with model-centric technology at the core, design changes are automatically reflected across and entire project, helping to keep the whole team coordinated. Dynamic modeling also presents the opportunity to increase competitive advantage and slash engineering time while providing enhanced levels of service to clients.More and more firms are turning to professional services teams to help them make the transition to a completely new way of working. Avatech specializes in getting companies up and running in the most cost-effective way possible to reduce downtime, while at the same time providing long-term value through careful planning.
"Our civil solutions professional services group offers customers a unique blend of business and industry acumen with in-depth technology expertise," said Bruce White, Executive Vice President of Sales for Avatech Solutions.
Marbach, Brady & Weaver, a pioneering Elkhart, Indiana-based civil engineering firm, contacted Avatech to implement this new technology, "We knew this would be a big change for us and so we are relying on Avatech for their expert assistance in training and implementation," said Chris Marbach, president at Marbach, Brady & Weaver.
Hanson Professional Services, an employee-owned, Engineering News Record 500 firm, also hired Avatech. "When we made the decision to standardize our aviation services on Civil 3D, we knew we wanted Avatech Solutions to lead the implementation," said Craig Reed, CADD Administrator at Hanson Professional Services. "They live up to their 'Altogether Smarter' tagline. We got the right expertise for the various types of design work we offer and are convinced that by choosing Avatech, we minimized down time and are able to provide our clients with improved engineering services."
Dynamic modeling technologies provide real-world drawing objects that maintain relationships with other objects within the model. When changes inevitably occur, they propagate throughout a drawing set. Gaining the ability to view complex 3D relationships between roadways, elevations, piping, and other systems enables engineers to instantly visualize and circumvent problems that simply were not evident in just two dimensions.
