Honored to be awarded by Ministry of IT of Nizhny Novgorod

February 02, 2017

СAD Exchanger received an award ‘IT project of the year’ in the contest hosted by Ministry of Informational Technologies of Nizhny Novgorod region.

Last year was full of wins for our team. We received 2 patents on parallel computations, which is important milestone for every tech company, revamped our GUI and received mass of positive feedback on it, released Android application, added support of several CAD formats (including the latest versions of currently supported formats) and as a cherry on the cake, we were awarded in the “IT brand NN” challenge. Minister of Information Technologies, Mr. Sergey Kuchin congratulated us with the «IT project of the year in the sphere of manufacturing and production» certificate.

IT Brand NN is the initiative of the Ministry of Information Technologies of Nizhny Novgorod. It is hosted annually and considered as central event in the local innovational ecosystem. The jury contains top-level executives and managers from well-known tech companies like Intel or HARMAN and representatives of Ministry of IT and other municipal foundations.

We have been invited to this challenge during one of the local events related to the development of regional IT infrastructure. We didn’t really expect to win or even be featured, as this challenge is mostly aimed to the companies with the decade-long rich track record. Our competitors were recognized local software vendors in the fields of manufacturing and production, enterprise resource management, informational security etc. Nevertheless, we decided to jump in and signed up for a challenge. Surprisingly, two months later we have been informed that we passed first round and invited for the awards ceremony, which is to be held in the regional tech park Ankudinovka. Organizers decided to keep the intrigue and didn’t announce the winners at that point. This were really exciting news for us. A couple of weeks later we took our seats at the Ankudinovka’s conference hall, watched the opening of the ceremony and was really excited about the announcement of the winners. A bit later hosts declared the winners and CAD Exchanger was among them.

We are honored to be recognized and that our solutions are appreciated not only by our users and customers, but by third-party organizations, including Ministry of IT as well.
