Autodesk, leading producer of AutoCAD, has introduced its latest version of Design Suites to members of the Nigerian Society of Engineers, NSE, at a reduced price.
Design suites include bundles of Autodesk products applicable to industries workflow.
The proposal of the new design software to the NSE is being undertaken by Autodesk Authorized Value Added Distributor, Worlds View Technologies.
Presenting the proposal to the NSE on Tuesday at the NSE building, Victoria Island, Lagos, southwest Nigeria, Mr. David Haslam, Director, Worlds View Technologies said â€œwe believe that leading with suites in any offering to professional bodies is essential.â€
Some of the suites being introduced at premium and ultimate editions are product design suite, factory design suite, building design suite, infrastructural design suite and plant design suite.
â€œThe Autodesk volume distributor has secured pricing in Nigeria where seats of AutoCAD 2012 with subscriptions will be available for $499 for a limited time period. This offer will be made available through all current Autodesk partners.
President, NSE, Engr. Olumuyiwa Ajibola said the body planned to partner with Autodesk in the past, saying that â€œwe set up a workstation to partner but because of the high cost, it did not work.â€
He commended Autodesk for ensuring international standard in AutoCAD distribution, adding that the NSE would introduce the new offer to its members so that they could subscribe to it.
â€œWe all need to be AutoCAD compliance and we take this offer very seriously. I recommend it to all engineers so that we can at last move into the legitimate use of AutoCAD. It is only within the legitimate environment we can seek redress,â€ he added.
