Software Support

When you make an investment in engineering software through PADT you are buying more than a tool to run on your computer. You are also purchasing local support from consulting engineers who use the same products every day on real world problems. 

PADT Technical Support

PADT's software support works the same for all of the products we represent.  When you call or email our engineers your inquiry will be responded to as soon as possible and usually right when we receive it.  We do not have a queue or automated ticket system. You work directly with our engineers.

Once you engage with our engineers you will find that PADT goes above and beyond what most companies offer in terms of support.  We answer the install, crash, bug, and simple usage questions that are normal for technical support.  We also go one step further and spend time helping you access the full power of your product, giving advice, examples, and even software scripts to help you be more productive.

All calls are entered it into our technical support database and every interaction we have with you on that topic will be added to your case.  Throughout the process you can contact the engineer assigned to your issue directly through email or over the phone.
