Siemens PLM Software Expands CADIMP Relationship

S-HERTOGENBOSCH, Netherlands, March 23, 2009 – Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced that CADIMP, an existing software training partner, will expand its offering to include consultancy services for the implementation and use of Siemens PLM Software solutions.

CADIMP has been offering training and e-learning services for Siemens PLM Software for the past twelve years. The company provides training in NX™ and Teamcenter® software, Siemens PLM Software’s comprehensive digital product development and digital lifecycle management solution, respectively. CADIMP uses online assessments in order to determine the skills and knowledge of software users.

As a training partner, CADIMP is closely involved in implementation projects and has a good understanding of working methods and processes used by Siemens PLM Software’s customers. The move to provide consultancy services was a natural next step in the expansion of the relationship.

“CADIMP is a proven partner with in-depth knowledge of our industry-leading PLM technology,” said Edwin Severijn, vice president and managing director Benelux, Siemens PLM Software. “The expansion of our partnership to include consulting services will bring additional benefits to our customers.”

As part if this expansion, CADIMP has founded a new business unit: CADIMP Consulting. This new unit will work closely with Siemens PLM Software on implementation projects. CADIMP also provides support to end users and the CADIMP consultants advise companies in building successful working methods and processes.

“CADIMP is pleased to expand our relationship with Siemens PLM Software,” said Gerard Smulders, managing director at CADIMP. “During the last twelve years, we have proven to be complementary partners. With the introduction of CADIMP Consulting next to CADIMP Training, we can now better support companies that use Siemens PLM Software technology. We can now offer services from project research to software installation, defining working methods and training in e-learning format. It’s an approach that will offer integrated advantages to our customers.”


CADIMP offers training, e-learning and consulting solutions for efficient use of Siemens PLM Software. For CADIMP ‘Knowledge is Power’ is not an empty statement but a work philosophy. Only when users know how they can use software practically and efficiently, they have the right tools to optimally perform their job. CADIMP’s training is more than an overview of ‘features’ and ‘functions’. Working smarter and efficiently is key. This way the step from training to practice will be smaller.
