Eagle Point had its beginnings in civil engineering. Its first product was RoadCalc for surveyors and engineers. Led by President and CEO John Biver, a degreed civil engineer, Eagle Point now concentrates on educating users on Autodesk products. It still holds live classes, but usually promotes its Pinnacle series, which for $750* gives a user access to all of their training material for their industry (civil, architecture structural and MEP). Eagle Point is eager to be viewed as process-oriented as it expands beyond mere CAD and into the business of the enterprise. This echoes similar intentions heard from a few CAD companies, from big ones like Dassault and those as small as IronCAD.
Eagle Point’s tutorials appear extensive on the software it covers. The Pinnacle Series Personal Edition lists over 150 tutorials, live online instructor-led classes and “cheat sheets” with shortcuts. You also get unlimited access to live support with phone, chat and email — which may be unique among training vendors.
Eagle Point tutorials run on iOS and Android devices. Eagle Point counts Jacobs, Siemens and HOK as customers.
