Sept. 1, 2016 – Rand Worldwide, a provider of technology solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology requirements, has announced a strategic partnership between its IMAGINiT Technologies’ Design Simulation and Visualization Services Group and the Canadian Centre for Product Validation (CCPV).

According to the parties, the partnership will help clients “compress the product commercialization gap and reduce the time and cost involved in moving products from concept to market by combining IMAGINiT’s simulation expertise with CCPV’s state-of-the-art innovation lab that offers leading-edge validation technologies, prototyping and testing equipment.”

“Our facility shares a common goal with our manufacturing customers and that is to help organizations be competitive on the global stage by supporting the entire innovation process,” said Ben Cecil, chief business officer, CCPV. “Our partnership with IMAGINiT and their expertise in the area of design simulation now creates a one-stop-shop for product innovation, testing and validation. IMAGINiT will help manufacturers mitigate risk with a suite of simulation services, including Computational Fluid Dynamics and Finite Element Analysis and CCPV will solidify the validation and commercialization process at their innovation facility. This enables clients of both organizations access to a complete range of design review and validation expertise resulting in design changes earlier in the process when the cost of change is lowest and the chance for innovation is greatest.”

“The process of bringing a product from an idea to commercial reality is filled with risk,” said Jason Pfeiffer, director of design and simulation services, IMAGINiT Technologies. “This partnership helps product manufacturers mitigate some of these inherent risks by providing customers with direct access to teams of experts that are experienced and focused on reducing design flaws that delay product launch timelines.”
