CAMFest 2016 impresses Siemens partners and sales teams

By Stephanie Aldrete

The annual “CAMFest” training week for our partners and Siemens PLM Software sales teams was held January 18 – 22 at our offices in Cypress, Calif.  CAMFest is an opportunity for these teams to learn about the new and exciting capabilities in NX 11 for Manufacturing software which will be available to customers later this year. Developers, product managers, and field people put a range of software through its paces and prepare for launch.

“I think all of the attendees look forward to the yearly CAMFest event – I know I do.  Not only are we learning all about the new software updates, but we have a great group of CAM enthusiasts and experts from all over that tell stories and trade tips and best practices. It is great to share the week with all of these folks, and then go back to the office ready to deliver and support the latest and greatest software,” said Uwe Roosz, Janus Engineering.

CAMFest was first conceived nearly two decades ago as an intense training week for training and help desk support teams, to ensure those customers’ questions were correctly answered as new software shipped out.But it quickly grew to include sales support teams from all over who wanted to be included in the information-rich sessions. And because these application engineers each represent many different customer environments and situations, the software gets a very thorough exposure to hundreds of potential user scenarios.  It is the very definition of synergy!

Was it worth the trip?  Uwe Roosz’ feedback was typical. “It is well worth the trip and time spent – in fact I would not miss it!  I’ll be here again next year, I’m sure.”
