Reseller Meeting & Training, 2015
SPRUT Technology recently held its 4th European SprutCAM Conference in Frankfurt/Main, Germany which took place from 02 to 04 November and gathered European key resellers to highlight the soon to be released SprutCAM 10.
SprutCAM resellers converged at SprutCAM Europe offices to attend the SprutCAM Reseller Meeting & Training.
The Resellers Meeting
During 3 full days, more than 25 partners, representing 17 companies from over 10 countries met and reflected on the many accomplishments of 2015 and discussed the road ahead for 2016 and beyond. Resellers flew in from as far away as Turkey and Brazil.
Yuriy Vishnevsky, Head of Sales for SPRUT Technology used the occasion to present the company’s results and outline the roadmap for the future.
The Resellers Meeting was a great opportunity for both long established as well as new SprutCAM Resellers to share their many success stories which included:
Success story from Aurelio Vinciguerra and Livio Pettiti, Italy
Livio Pettiti, CEO of Sintesi (Italy), reported an increase in sales for the region.
His company is the longest established distributor for SPRUT Technology. Several of their prestige customers use SprutCAM to manufacture parts for the likes of Bugatti and Ferrari.
A success story from Bruno Grappeggia, Technical Expert for Comac (Brazil)
This year, for the first time at our annual SprutCAM seminar there was a presentation from Latin America. The impressions and experiences were shared by Bruno Grappeggia, a technical specialist from the company Comac that is based in Brazil. Comac joined the SprutCAM Team around a year ago. During this year they showed impressive results for a new SprutCAM reseller. Their success is based on their many years of experience in distributing CAM software such as MasterCAM and RobotMaster. In the words of Bruno, “The choice of SprutCAM was pragmatic, practical and competent”. Bruno also stressed that for them, a very important criterion for the selection of a CAM product was the availability of advanced programming features for industrial robots, and they didn’t make a mistake when they chose SprutCAM in this respect as it far exceeds any of its competitors.
Success story from Andreas Reitz, CEO of CAD/CAM Systeme Datentechnik Reitz GmbH & Co KG (Germany)
There was a bright and very interesting presentation held by Andreas Reitz - founder and CEO Datentechnik Reitz GmbH & Co KG. Andreas shared his recipe for success and highlighted the many strengths of the SprutCAM system.
