SORDA switches from AutoCAD to Autodsys IntelliCAD, purchases 270 seats
Portland, Oregon — Autodsys, Inc. (http://www.autodsys.com/) announced today that the Southern Oregon Regional Drafting Alliance (SORDA) has switched to Autodsys IntelliCAD 6 Professional.
SORDA is a group of ten high schools in Oregon which previously used AutoCAD in their vocational training classes but due to rising costs decided to switch to a more cost-effective solution. Rick Wickersham, co-chair of SORDA, said “IntelliCAD Professional is a specific "AutoCAD-like" software program that our regional high school CAD programs could afford to own vs. face the existing challenges of annual escalating costs of leased user licenses” He added, “IntelliCAD . . . better matches the majority of our region's high school computer hardware and network capabilities.” Ron Prepchuk, President of Autodsys, Inc. said “We worked closely with SORDA to resolve technical issues that were specific to student accounts in a networked environment.” As a result Rick proclaimed “Autodsys is a CAD software company which has been able to provide significantly more personal immediate technical support to the school-based not-for-profit user sites.”
Autodsys IntelliCAD has a Suggested Retail Price of $149 to $349 depending on features. IntelliCAD provides an alternative to high-priced CAD software without sacrificing .DWG compatibility or the commands and features users have come to expect.” IntelliCAD provides DWG file support as well as support for industry standard commands, menu files, script files, shape files, text fonts, hatch patterns, linetypes, LISP programs, SDS/C++ programs, and VBA programs.
