Responding to a gradual change in business direction, Accurate Die Design, Inc. has changed its name to Accurate Die Design Software, Inc. With the name change, the company has introduced a new corporate logo and launched a new website, www.diedesignsoftware.com.
“I started the business 15 years ago as a die-design company and within a few years it started to transition into a software company.” says Raymond Proeber, president of the Brookfield, WI, company. “We stopped designing dies six years ago so we decided to change our name to reflect that we no longer do die design as a service but rather are now a software company that sells, trains and supports die-design software.”The company’s new website focuses on SolidWorks-based Logopress3 die-design software and related forming-simulation and flat-blank-prediction software. Along with software information as well as training and support services, the site includes numerous case studies and a searchable video page containing real-time, narrated videos that demonstrate the software products.
