Here from our customers.My experience with Rational Technology, Inc. is that they are always helpful, professional, and friendly. In particular, Alex Wood, Manager of Training & Technical Support Services, continually provides prompt and accurate responses to questions and generously offers advice and instruction from his seemingly endless knowledge of AutoCAD. I could not be more satisfied with ACAD technical support than I am with the support I receive from Rational Technology, Inc.”

We had just started working with Rational Technology Inc. when I asked about purchasing additional licenses of AutoCAD Civil 3D. The RTI representative asked several questions about our license history and our use of other design software. He suggested we have Autodesk perform a serial number search which uncovered several AutoCAD licenses that had not been used and were available for upgrade purchases. He also suggested a competitive upgrade of an older version of Microstation for an even bigger savings. Because of the extra time and effort our RTI representative used to investigate our unique situation, he was able to approve the purchase of two additional licenses at a significant discount through the Autodesk upgrade program and the competitive upgrade program. I enjoy working with a representative that is willing to put forth the extra effort to save us money and alleviate stress. We appreciate the conscientious manner with which RTI conducts business.

After I received training from Rational Technology I found exceptional value in the 30 days of free follow-up training support that’s standard with every class. I utilized that support while working through the training materials and on a new project. By phone, email or through web sessions the support reinforced the subjects covered in class and I quickly became proficient with the new tools in Civil 3D. The follow up support is a great service provided by the Rational Technology staff!

I thought the course (Customized Civil 3D Essentials) was great, I learned a lot and feel like I could use the software on my own now.
Lisa Walton, Great West Engineering, Helena Montana
This (Customized Civil 3D Essentials) met our expectations of getting this info to all different groups-surveyors, drafters, designers - Alex put in much prep time to tailor the class to our company and it’s specific needs. I think even those more versed in C3D learned new and usable info.
Billie Marinovich, Pioneer Technical, Butte Montana
Good overall. Well organized.

We have benefitted from Rational Technology’s expertise as our CAD reseller for many years. This time included a period of rapid growth in our company, acquisition of another firm and expansion to multiple office locations. Throughout, Rational Technology was extremely helpful as we forecast our needs, consolidated existing software licenses and tracked our Autodesk assets. Most importantly, Rational Technology showed us ways to maximize these assets and ultimately we enjoyed significant savings. We appreciate the professional advice and assistance we receive from RTI.
The Land Group, Inc., Brent Daley, CAD Manager
We knew designing in Civil 3D was going to be completely different than the process we used with Autodesk Land Desktop. We’d had several staff members in different offices working on a Civil 3D template but it was hard to coordinate efforts and keep up with projects.
RTI came on site, evaluated our Civil 3D template and worked with one point of contact in our organization to complete our template allowing us to keep up with project deadlines. RTI scheduled a class for our team using their mobile lab with our company template and data from a project we had completed using Land Desktop that everybody on our team was familiar with.
We found their project-based class to be much more effective than classes we’d taken in the past and with their post-class support we are confident we can fully adopt Civil 3D and increase our productivity with the powerful new tools in Civil 3D.”
Sean Haggerty, Sunrise Engineering
Rational Technology Inc (RTI) provided an on-site update class for us on core ACAD 2008 to 2009 functionality and an on site assessment of how we use Map 3D to access internal and external data. RTI demonstrated how by utilizing tools in Map 3D we could access data we store in a proprietary database. With their assistance we were able to identify many ways to improve our processes by linking our plant to our customer information and integrating external data sources.

Coming from an Eagle Point platform using AutoCAD 2004 we knew we would face challenges adopting Autodesk’s AutoCAD Civil 3D. We solicited bids from several vendors. Representatives from Rational Technology Inc. (RTI) came to us and described their project based concept to our team.
They demonstrated strong product knowledge and asked questions to better understand our design process. We chose them based on their structured, project based approach. RTI helped us develop our Civil 3D template and incorporated data for a series of classes from a project we had completed with Eagle Point. With their continued training support we feel our implementation will be successful with minimal disruptions to our productivity.
