Full Support for Half the Cost of a Cup of Coffee
We have officially launched the worlds best value CAD software support program. For just AU$1.30c per day (that’s about US0.97c) clients have access to full expert technical support via phone, email and web communication. Clients may choose a monthly payment plan with support supplied on a per nominated user basis. This allows for companies with multiple users to nominate just one or a few key support personnel.For those who just want to pay a single fee each time they use the support service rather than subscribe to the annual plan a AU$37 (about US$28) per use fee applies. Mr Bill Murch heads CAD Training and Support; he said, “Clients get the best from their software by subscribing to the new support plan… Questions are dealt with more quickly and written solutions to clients issues are made available so all subscribers benefit from the answers. We can no longer provide unlimited free support as we now have so many clients…we want to be able to give the best service possible”. CAD International’s CEO Nigel Varley puts the price of the support into perspective, “You can’t even buy a cup of coffee for the price we ask for support. It represents fantastic value and clients love having an expert at their fingertips.” To purchase your annual support plan call: USA 1-800 699 0942, Australia (02) 9973 4499, International +612 9973 4499 or email Celine.

A new feature that has snuck into RealCAD’s rendering option, is the ability to set the size of the image being rendered regardless of the number of pixels on the screen. This allows the software to produce large format images that can be printed big with crisp edges and great clarity. Files can be large and rendering time is increased of course, but the results are magic. You will need to download the latest version of the cad.exe file from the web site. (CAUTION: Only download this file if you are running v5 of the RealCAD Pro+ . This file will not work with v4 or earlier).
