Customer Testimonial

At KNAPP AG, we use Dell Precision Optimizer in various departments for AutoCAD (2015, 2016, 2017) and PTC Creo. The Dell Precision Optimizer application works really well. It is a very nice tool to boost ISV application performance and to install all the necessary Dell updates for the machine.
