Free access to a selection of online training courses is just one of the new benefits available to holders of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence’s PC-DMIS software maintenance  agreements.

Customers are now being offered the opportunity to study either metrology fundamentals or take a CMM operator course via Hexagon’s e-learning portal.

The leading measurement solutions provider is also giving away free membership to the metrology network at its Silverstone Park sub-contract facility with the added bonus of preferential contract inspection rates for SMA customers.

Other new incentives include a special discount off Hexagon’s extensive range of classroom training courses, a six-month free trial of Q-DAS software and free delivery on orders of spares and accessories over £100.

Hexagon’s improved SMA programme builds on existing features such as service pack and warranty updates, online and telephone technical support, webinars and annual training events.

Lapsed SMA holders can take advantage of a special amnesty in which no back charges will be applied as long as they take out a new, three-year contract by December 31.

“We’re always looking to find ways of improving our services to customers and this package of benefits for SMA holders is probably the best ever,” commented Melissa Cope, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence’s SMA product line specialist.

The enhanced deal coincides with the launch of the latest version of Hexagon’s flagship PC-DMIS software which includes a range of new tools that are designed to provide a more focused user experience and improve workflows.
