PADT Named ANSYS North American Channel Partner of the Year and Becomes an ANSYS Certified Elite Channel Partner

The ANSYS Sales Team at PADT was honored last week when we were recognized four times at the recent kickoff meeting for the ANSYS North American Sales orginization.  The most humbling of those trips up to the stage was when PADT was recognized as the North American Channel Partner of the Year for 2016.  It was humbling because there are so many great partners that we have had the privilege of worked with for almost 20 years now.  Our team worked hard, and our customers were fantastic, so we were able to make strides in adding capability at existing accounts, finding new customers that could benefit from ANSYS simulation tools, and expanding our reach further in Southern California.  It helps that simulation driven product development actually works, and ANSYS tools allow it to work well.

Here we are on stage, accepting the award:

PADT Accepts the Channel Partner of the Year Award.

We were also recognized two other times; for exceeding our sales goals and for making the cut to the annual President’s Club retreat.   As a reminder, PADT sells the full multiphysics product line from PADT in Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and Nevada.  This is a huge geographic area with a very diverse set of industries and customers.

In addition, ANSYS, Inc. announced that PADT was one of several Channel Partners who had obtained Elite Certified Channel Partner status. This will allow PADT to provide our customers with better services and gives our team access to more resources within ANSYS, Inc.

Once we made it back from the forests and hills of Western Pennsylvania we were able to get a picture with the full sale team.  Great job guys:

We could not have had such a great 2016 without the support of everyone at PADT. The sales team, the application engineers, the support engineers, business operations, and everyone else that pitches in.   We look forward to making more customers happy in 2017 and coming back with additional hardware.
