From Arthur Sexton
CEO of Ingenea - Founders of Solid Mastermind
The creators of Solid Mastermind are Ingenea a limited company owned and operated by Jon Sutcliffe, and me Arthur Sexton.
We have both been supporting, training, and marketing Solid Edge since it was first released in April 1996.
We have conducted hundreds of training courses and answered probably thousands of support questions covering both technical and commercial issues. We have helped companies evaluate Solid Edge, justify the purchase of Solid Edge, install, implement and upgrade Solid Edge.
Jon and I are engineers who have been using computer assisted methods all of our working lives... and those lives started long before 1996.
We have lived the same experiences as you and probably suffered the same frustrations.
Most importantly over that time we have attended many training courses, asked many questions and liaised with a multitude of software developers and vendors both as users and business partners.
And change has been constant. Advances in technology have been immense. The first computer I worked with after graduation when decommissioned was donated to the Science Museum in London. Today my mobile phone probably has as much computing power. I can’t see that turning up in a Science Museum.
The first solid modelling software I used on a personal computer back in 1987 could model a single part of limited complexity but now there is Solid Edge with Synchronous Technology.
In 2007 we started looking at how we could really embrace the internet and social media to the benefit of the worldwide community of Solid Edge professionals whilst providing an improved service and saving them money. Yes, saving you money.
We looked at what was being provided for Solid Edge users in terms of community, user group, on line services including training, tutorials, documentation, forums, Q&A, help desk, webinars, etc. and how this was being delivered using the latest web based technology.
Nowhere was this being provided in a single, dedicated, focused and coherent environment, indeed even if it existed at all.
So as foremost experts with Solid Edge we decided to combine our knowledge and expertise with technology to deliver flexible, efficient but highly effective on-line resources for Solid Edge clients. That is Solid Mastermind.
Solid Mastermind is unique and is the most comprehensive, current, and expert on-line resource and community for you the Solid Edge professional.
Our techniques are proven by our track record and the success of our clients. We have included testimonials in many locations around this site or you can access a comprehensive collection here: View Testimonials.
We look forward to welcoming you as a member of Solid Mastermind.
