Fisher Unitech Awarded Solidworks Elite Club For Outstanding Sales And Support

January 20th, 2022

Fisher Unitech, one of the world’s largest technology providers of 3D design software tools and 3D printers, announced today that it has received two SOLIDWORKS Elite Club awards. Both Prism Engineering (now Fisher Unitech) and Fisher Unitech each received recognition from Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS Corp. for outstanding sales and support services. This is another example of how well aligned the companies were when Fisher Unitech acquired Prism Engineering in June of 2016.


The two SOLIDWORKS Elite Club awards were presented to Fisher Unitech at the SOLIDWORKS World 2017 conference held February 5-8 in Los Angeles, California. Fisher Unitech’s Subscription Manager, Chad Vannatta, and Director of Software Sales, Chris Tarka, accepted the awards on behalf of the company.

The awards recognize Fisher Unitech as one of the top SOLIDWORKS technology and services providers in North America. Membership in the SOLIDWORKS Elite Club signifies that Fisher Unitech exceeds the highest standards for customer retention, subscription support renewals, and software technical support.

“This is truly an accomplishment and not an easy task,” said Suzanne Wolgast, Director of Customer Experience at Fisher Unitech. “To receive the SOLIDWORKS Elite Club award a SOLIDWORKS technology and services provider needs to achieve a subscription service renewal rate of 95% accompanied by an initial attach rate of 95% for the entire year. I am proud that both Fisher Unitech and Prism Engineering each won the award and look forward to continuing our dedication to the best customer experience.”

Why Fisher Unitech

When asked what it is that makes Fisher Unitech stand out above other SOLIDWORKS technology providers, Esteban Gaytan, the Director of Technical Services at Fisher Unitech said, “We pride ourselves on how we support our customers. This is an example too of how Prism Engineering’s mission of ensuring high customer service standards continues now with Fisher Unitech.”

Fisher Unitech customers now have access to one of the largest technical support teams in its industry. “Each team member whether originally from Fisher Unitech or Prism Engineering brings deep expertise and a lot of passion that we all thrive on,” said Gaytan. “Not only are our customers getting software from us, but they are getting world class training and technical support to ensure they get the most value out of the technology.”
