Nor-Tech Integration Expertise

Putting it all together, Nor-Tech has one of the most highly respected technology engineering teams in the world—capable of everything from minor tweaks that solve big problems to complex hardware and software integrations that other engineers won’t touch. Linux expertise is one of the many areas where we excel.

Application Integration

With most hardware proposals, integration expertise is a deciding factor; the fact is, many technology companies can sell the hardware, but very few can leverage it for maximum productivity. Integrating applications in a distributed parallel environment is extremely complex and requires a collaborative team of experts. Most of our engineers have been with us for a decade or more and work closely with industry partners such as Dassault Systèmes,

Hardware Integration

We source hardware from the industry’s leading developers, such as Intel; working closely with these partners to engineer an optimal configuration that is reliable, powerful, scalable and cost-effective

Fast, Accessible Support

The same Nor-Tech engineers that build your technology are readily accessible during business hours to answer questions and explain complicated procedures in terms that even those without a technology background can understand. Our engineers get to know our customers—there’s always a friendly, familiar voice on the other end of the phone line.

Intel, Dassault Systèmes and Nor-Tech Collaborating for top performing, cost-effective simulation solutions.
