I have just tried to buy a second seat of Solidworks office pro from a different Var to the one that we have at the moment, this is due to the lack of technical knowledge of our present Var. You would think that they would jump at the chance of a sale. But no, they said that they couldn't sell to me, as I already have a contract with my current Var! Even if they could, they would only sell at list price with no discounts. As a new customer without any other contract, they could offer me a discount! This is all due to the current Solidworks policies, they said! Bloody cheek! excuse me Solidworks, but I am the customer and if you want to keep my business, I would suggest that you change your policies, before I start looking elsewhere!
