Genium Establishes Relationship with ADDA for Discounted GD&T Practice Exams
June 10, 2002 - Genium announced today a new relationship that allows American Design Drafting Association (ADDA) members to receive special discounts on Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) Practice Exams. The relationship gives ADDA, a national membership organization for the professional designer drafter, discounted access to Genium's on-line GD&T Practice Exams. Genium is a well-recognized publisher of industry standard drafting references and tools and this new relationship represents the first in a running series of collaborations by the two organizations. ADDA members are now able to receive a five-dollar discount off Genium's on-line GD&T Practice Exams found at: http://www.draftingzone.com/gdtzone
Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing is one of the most difficult and widely implemented drafting principles and there is an ever-increasing need for drafting and design professionals to have solid working knowledge of its principles. ADDA members, the drafters and design professionals, are expected by their employers to have an understanding of critical GD&T concepts, due to the increase of management and quality control initiatives like Six Sigma and just-in-time. Genium provides the drafting and design information tools and resources, like the on-line GD&T Practice Exams, to help these ADDA members understand and do their job more efficiently.
"Specially-discounted Practice Exams mark the beginning of a meaningful relationship with ADDA and it also demonstrates Genium's pedigree as a world-class provider of drafting and design information products," said Michael Cinquanti, President of Genium. Continued Cinquanti, "Since the introduction of our on-line Practice Exams, we've received many requests from ADDA members who wished to employ Genium's web-based GD&T testing tool to assess understanding of one of today's most critical topics in drafting. Genium's special discount is a direct response to this widespread demand by ADDA professionals and a way acknowledging a important part of our customer base."
