Why does ALP use ARES Commander?
Automotive is an extremely competitive market. They need to adhere to very strict deadlines. As a result, it is critical that they use the appropriate tools at all times. For ALP’s choose ARES Commander for this reason for their design stage.
I would recommend it to any company currently using other CAD software to take a look at ARES Commander. It helped us and I am sure it will help them as well.Mr. Bharat Kulshrestha, AGM – SAP & IT, ALP Nishikawa Co. Pvt. Limited
Transition from AutoCAD to ARES Commander
Most of ALP’s users were previously familiar with AutoCAD. The transition to ARES was smooth. Most of them were able to start their work with ARES from day one, as it offers a similar look and feels and familiar keyboard commands.
ARES Commander network licenses
It was also very important for ALP that ARES Commander is available with network licenses. It provides them with the flexibility to share a set number of licenses among multiple users to optimize their costs. In ARES the network license setup is simple and the Graebert Customer Portal provides them with full control of their licenses.
Features of ARES Commander
The time-saving features such as Mouse Gestures, Power Trim or the Smart Dimension tool contribute to making ARES more user friendly. The PDF Import feature is also quite popular among ALP users. They use it to edit their old PDF files. With this command, they are able to convert PDFs into DWG and make quick changes as required.
Advantages of ARES Commander
Interestingly, ARES Commander not only helped ALP to optimize their costs. ALP increased its productivity by 10 to 20% with time-saving features.
