ProModel Launches its Autodesk Business Division Top
The partnership between Autodesk and ProModel continues to grow, as does the tightening of the integration between our technologies. It is in this spirit that we have created the ProModel Autodesk Business Division, which Mike Jolicoeur has recently come on board from Autodesk to run.
With the size of Autodesk’s customer base, we are building out our business-development and customer-service capability by using a Value-Added Reseller (VAR) approach globally for this division, in addition to ProModel’s direct sales force and consulting teams. This will further improve the customer experience as the VARs will be able to not only support the simulation workflows, but the layout workflows, as well utilizing Autodesk Factory Design Utilities.
Applied Software Technology Inc., is our first Autodesk VAR in the US, and Point JSC is our first Autodesk VAR in Europe - with more signing up in the near future. With the power of the new ProModel AutoCAD Edition and Autodesk Factory Utilities, we believe the ProModel-Autodesk partnership will greatly benefit and delight both ProModel and Autodesk customers. Please don’t hesitate to contact Mike if you have thoughts or ideas about how we can make this new division and its products the most valuable for you. email@example.com

We are pleased to announce update 10.8.14 to Process Simulator. This update has many important improvements to the software. Check out the details at the product What’s-New Page.
New License Entitlement System Provides Access to Latest Upgrades and Soon to be Open New Solutions Café.
We transitioned to a new, improved identify-based license entitlement system in 2020 for our ProModel / MedModel and Process Simulator products. Access to your software in the new system is based on creating your own login credentials consisting of your work email address as your username and a password that you define. If you access your software now by logging in, then you have already made this transition. If you have not yet done so, please convert over at your earliest opportunity by using the simple one-time procedure detailed in the ProModel Identity-Based License Entitlement Transition Procedure blog post.
Rest assured, all of your existing models will continue to work. You are simply switching how you access your software!
By switching to the new system, you will be prompted within in the software, to stay up to date on the latest upgrades, improvements and techniques associated with your products. In addition, you will gain access to the soon-to-be-launched New ProModel Solutions Café. We will be phasing the old one out shortly after the new one opens.
If you have any issues with the transition process, our Tech Support team will be more than happy to help you. You can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
