This week in Las Vegas, Autodesk employees, executives and our channel partners gather for the One Team Conference. This annual event brings together all of the people who collaborate to bring our award winning design, engineering and entertainment software to our customers and keep our millions of users productive through support, training, development and subscription.
This year we are honoring 17 new partners for achieving the milestone of 25 years as an Autodesk partner. It is rare for a software company to have a quarter century relationship with its partners, so we’re especially proud to have such a long history of success with our partners. They have developed amazing expertise in 3D design and used this expertise to help companies large and small realize the benefits of 3D to solve critical business challenges.
Autodesk supports a number of initiatives for its global channel partner network, including establishing a renowned reseller recognition program; implementing a customer engagement program which has assisted in increased partner solutions sales; investing in channel capability through training; and forming a channel partner web portal designed to deliver resellers fast, easy access to a wealth of resources, program material and news.
Autodesk is also recognizing the impressive business results from some of our partners with the 2013 Platinum Club winners. Our Platinum Club partners deliver world-class service and technical expertise, helping make their customers more efficient, competitive and innovative.
