Dear Advanced Solutions Autodesk Customers,
Since my very first use of AutoCAD, DOS Version 9.0, as a sophomore in engineering school in 1988, I’ve been amazed at the technology Autodesk, Inc. has created. In the last 30 years I’ve had the great privilege to witness and experience a drafting software product evolve into an intelligent 3D modeling technology platform that enables engineers and architects to design, collaborate and innovate in truly remarkable ways.
The last 14 years I’ve been a proud advocate and evangelist of our customers using the Autodesk technology. We’ve worked extremely hard at Advanced Solutions to hire gifted subject matter experts, develop intellectual property to automate workflow and support user experiences that extend value beyond the box of software.
The merging of Advanced Solutions Autodesk business with IMAGINiT enables a new era of capacity and capability for our Autodesk customers and employees. It greatly expands the value proposition for our customers to realize even greater competitive advantages with their Autodesk investment. I’m a big fan of Larry Rychlak, President & CEO of Rand Worldwide, and Bill Zavadil, COO of IMAGINiT. They are high integrity leaders that share common business values and beliefs of mine. I’m confidently entrusting not only our Autodesk customers to them, but also the future of the employees, many of whom I have known for years. I am confident this partnership will be good for everyone involved.
Advanced Solutions, Inc. will continue to focus on and develop our BioAssemblyBot®, Slot3D™, Xpedient® and Student Sheet™ technology platforms and while I will miss the day to day with the Autodesk business, I am committed to staying involved with the IMAGINiT team, the employees and customers as required.
Thank you for your loyalty and trust.
My best to you,
Michael W. Golway, P.E.
Advanced Solutions, Inc., Chairman & CEO
