Intercad announces record 2006 results
SYDNEY, Australia, February 19, 2007 - Intercad Pty Ltd, Australian computer-aided design and manufacturing specialist, has achieved a record financial result for the calendar year of 2006. The results reflect year-on-year growth of more than 35 per cent on a solid 2005 result.
According to Intercad’s newly appointed Managing Director, Scott Frayne, this result reflects the success achieved by the company’s customers in Australia and New Zealand as they continuously evolve their product design capabilities to remain globally competitive. Frayne said, “With 35 per cent growth for 2006 and similar projections for 2007, our community of SolidWorks users will exceed 10,000 by the half-year mark. We are privileged to work with so many talented, resourceful and innovative companies.”
Intercad is the sole distributor of leading 3D CAD software SolidWorks in Australia and New Zealand.
“Our CAD/CAM/CAE solution, with SolidWorks at its core, is designed to make Australian and New Zealand designers and manufacturers more productive and creative so they can better compete in a tough global market.
“Together SolidWorks and our suite of complementary applications create a complete engineering workflow from conceptual design right through to manufacturing, including product data management and marketing solutions,” said Frayne.
Ved Narayan, Vice President of SolidWorks’ Asia Pacific operations, reflecting on an outstanding year for SolidWorks across the Asia-Pacific region, and specifically in Australia and New Zealand, said, “Twelve years of successful partnership between SolidWorks and Intercad is built on the cornerstone of helping our customers design better products and achieve greater success. Intercad has again exceeded expectations in overall volume and has won an award for achieving one of the highest product penetrations in Asia-Pacific for SolidWorks Office Premium - a high value 3D product design solution - reflecting savvy and progressive decision making by customers.”
SolidWorks World 2007, recently held in New Orleans, showcased 2006 customer successes and previewed exciting new functionalities in the SolidWorks 2008 release. Grant Preston, Intercad’s technical lead who attended the event said, “The SolidWorks organisation is uncanny in its insights and responsiveness to customer feedback. The SolidWorks product family continues to lead the industry with its high-end functionality complemented by its ease-of-use.”
Intercad held the inaugural SolidWorks World Australia and New Zealand Conference and Exhibition in Sydney in September 2006. Frayne confirmed the event would be held again this year.
