New colleague, new software
"Why don't we use Advance Steel?", Asked Marc Verstraten when he joined Breetec International in As, Belgium. Because with that program he had worked with at another company with great pleasure. Verstraten got green light and his employer never regretted it. Not even when Matrix Software became the dealer of the software. Breetec worked for the arrival of Verstraten, who is responsible for engineering and production at the company, with a standard version of AutoCAD. As a newcomer, he quickly discovered the shortcomings of that program. "I missed the things I could do with my previous work with Advance Steel and now no longer. Working smoothly in 3D, creating connections, generating lists, quickly creating 2D parts and having calculation work done automatically for example. With Advance Steel, that was all possible. With these functions, Breetec could save itself a lot of work and therefore money. "
Get started quickly
With that promise, the switch was quickly arranged. Verstraten has been working with Breetec for over fifteen years. "Modeling in 3D is very easy. Standard connections can be called up quickly and can then be easily adapted. The software can also easily be set up on company-specific matters. Even more important; when the model is ready, everything is ready. You do not have to do a lot of calculations afterwards for the employees of production. That has already happened. And if you want to work out details at a detailed level, that is a fraction of the work that was needed in the old program. Our assembly colleagues can quickly get started with the drawings we make. "When Breetec opted for Advance Steel, Matrix Software was not yet in the picture. "We then had to deal with another dealer. As a customer you are more or less forced to make the switch to the new dealer, Matrix Software, but I am very happy with it. The helpdesk is really much better than that of the previous dealer. Matrix has quickly deepened itself in the new software and assists us with advice and action. I myself have not been able to experience how Matrix functions as a trainer, because I already knew Advance Steel and did not need a course. But recently a colleague of mine followed a course at Matrix. He was satisfied with it and will soon be working with Advance Steel. "
Working with Advance Steel has a nice side effect for Breetec and other Belgian companies. "Companies that work with the software have a lot of contact with each other. That is handy, because that way you can exchange some usage tips. But those contacts have also led us to get to know each other's companies better. And thus we can sometimes outsource work to each other. It has not started, but it is nicely included. "
