Gamma Technologies frequently receives requests from companies who wish to outsource GT-SUITE simulation projects. While we are pleased to receive such requests, GT’s primary focus has always been on providing the best and most advanced simulation software, rather than on consulting services. For this reason, GT refers such requests to professional consulting firms. It is in this spirit that we have established the “Consulting & Services Providers List” program, listing high quality consulting firms experienced in the use of GT-SUITE, which have built long term relationships with Gamma Technologies.
