HP and AUGI
Partnering for your success
HP has been a long-time supporter of Autodesk User Group International (AUGI), and a major sponsor of many AUGI activities. That commitment is based on HP’s belief that working closely with the AUGI community can have a positive affect on both its members and HP.
Participation in events like Autodesk University and AUGI CAD Camps gives HP an opportunity to share the latest information about its solutions, as well as future product directions. As important, it gives HP a chance to hear directly from the AUGI community itself.
Through workshops, training sessions and demonstrations, HP personnel gain insights into how HP products are used in the workplace, what works and what doesn’t work. HP product developers also have a chance to understand what new functionality users would like to see, which can translate into specific product enhancements.
The relationship between HP and AUGI complements the close alliance the company has had with Autodesk for more than 20 years. This relationship allows for AUGI members to have the products, including workstations and large format printers, that work better and faster for Autodesk applications.
HP is committed to providing solutions to the AUGI community that are specifically designed for Autodesk applications. That commitment includes assigning dedicated personnel to test, optimize, certify and support those solutions, and to work with Autodesk to ensure absolute reliability and performance. HP also shares product road maps so that new Autodesk application functionality will be supported in HP workstations.
HP established an engineering process to test Autodesk applications on HP workstation configurations in order to optimize those applications. In addition HP submits workstations to several Autodesk sites for application certification, including Autodesk® AutoCAD®, Autodesk® Revit®, Autodesk® Inventor®, Autodesk® 3dsMax® and Autodesk® Maya®. Unlike many of our competitors, these workstations remain at Autodesk support centers so customer problems can be exactly replicated on HP workstations if needed.
In addition, Autodesk has standardized on HP workstations and uses them to develop its software and test its applications. Autodesk's keystone products have all been built on HP workstations, a clear demonstration of Autodesk's confidence in HP.
