Question for UK users



I am a newbie here. I am about to buy my first Solidworks licence and I want to ask UK users if all sellers in the country are basically the same (price and service) or are some better than others? In my profile they have assigned a re-seller but I am not dealing with them. Are the re-sellers regional?

The company called Solidsolutions has a current offer of a discount of up to 35%. Is this kind of thing genuine or is it like DFS sofas?

Whilst there is at least 1 other reseller, SolidSolutions basically has the UK wrapped up. The price you will get across any of the resellers will be the same as it's usually determined by SW itself, but the additionals they offer can make the difference (training and support primarily).

As for the discount, you will find that comes around most years, I suspect with the current situation it may last longer / come round again.
