UGS PLM Software is making a serious offer to entice users to upgrade to its finite element analysis (FEA) software.
Targeting users of standalone FEA products like Algor, Ansys DesignSpace and CosmosDesignStar, UGS is offering a trade-up program for its Femap software, which is the CAE component of its UGS Velocity Series portfolio aimed at small and mid-size customers. The offer enables them to receive a credit for a portion of their existing investment, seat for seat, against the cost of purchasing Femap with UGS NXTM Nastran. The result can be up to a 75% savings on the software purchase, depending on their current product and level.
