Committed to recognizing top Autodesk Value Added Resellers (VARs), Autodesk Inc., a design and digital content creation company, announced the first of the Autodesk Authorized Resellers that have been given the distinction of Premier Solutions Provider (PSP). Premier Solutions Providers are an elevated level of Autodesk Value Added Reseller (VAR) that incorporate Autodesk software solutions along with proven and measurable technical expertise in a specific industry or unique business. PSPs provide their customers full solutions from pre and post sales, support, and training, to implementation and customization. PSPs work closely with Autodesk to insure a customer's investment in Autodesk software solutions is returned.

"Sterling Systems has shown a long-term commitment to their customers, their people and Autodesk," said Dave Rhodes, vice president, Autodesk U.S. Sales for Infrastructure Solutions Division. He continues, "They are leaders in providing total solutions to their customers' toughest CAD and GIS problems. We are excited to work even closer with them to grow our business."

To qualify for the Autodesk Premier Solutions Provider status, VARs must demonstrate technical and industry expertise that includes a strong knowledge of the customers business needs in the area of civil solutions and mapping. Each PSP has demonstrated the ability to meet rigorous sales, personnel and customer service measurements. A special Autodesk Committee that includes the channel directors and divisional vice presidents thoroughly evaluates each reseller's abilities. Those chosen PSP status have been deemed experts at implementing Autodesk Solutions for the given solution division. They also have proven customer references and testimonials that attest to their level of expertise and commitment to customer success.
