Who We Are

We have a knack for Siemens Software solutions and process based training.

Since 2005, our focus has always been to ensure our customers are well versed in design and manufacturing. Increasing your company’s profitability is our top priority by providing solutions and recommendations on maintaining an efficient manufacturing process.

With the CAD / CAM / CAE / PLM / PDM capabilities we’ve utilized over the years (and an invaluable technical team to back it up), our team at Swoosh Tech tailors processes that project results to your bottom line.

These Experts Make Up Our Technical Team

The best training isn’t always about tips, tricks and menu picks. As a result of feature based training, it leaves users with trivial knowledge that may or may not be applicable to their manufacturing process. So how is our training different, then? Process Based Training.

Our thought leaders have emphasized a process based training approach for decades. We believe in changing the way design engineers and manufacturers learn and leverage Siemens Digital Industries Software tools by highlighting the right features for your company.

With an impressive, combined 185 years of Siemens PLM experience, our team will take you beyond the basics with strategies you can take back to the office.

That’s our training mantra.
