Autodesk Inc. announced that Portland Precision Instruments, located in Portland, Oregon and Kent, Washington, has won the Autodesk Channel Partner of the Quarter Award in the first quarter of fiscal year 2004. Portland Precision Instruments exceeded their overall quarterly sales targets by more than 250 percent, growing their business 190 percent from the previous quarter. With a strong sales program, Portland Precision’s hard work is well-deserving of this award. The Channel Partner of the Quarter award recognizes Autodesk business partners for outstanding service, support, and sales growth.

“Portland Precision has exceeded Autodesk sales expectations despite being in the midst of a weak economy,” said Steven Blum, vice president of Americas Sales at Autodesk. “This award reflects their hard work and commitment to helping customers get the most out of their Autodesk solutions. We congratulate them on their impressive success.”

To win the quarterly award, Portland Precision Instruments competed against Autodesk Systems Centers (ASCs), Value Added Resellers (VARs), Education Resellers (AERs), and Distribution partners throughout the United States. Companies were judged on overall sales, vertical sales, and overall growth.

"At Portland Precision we are committed to delivering quality solutions to our customers. In addition to top-level expertise and service, we offer our customers the solutions needed to help them meet and exceed their business objectives,” said Tigue Howe, Portland Precision’s principal. “We are honored to be recognized by Autodesk with this prestigious award.”
