Australia phone access to 3D headquarters

To better accommodate our growing number of software users located in or near Australia, 3D Inspection Systems is pleased to announce the addition of a new direct Australian phone number to our United States headquarters. Although our operating location and hours is based from Florida, USA, with its vast time zone difference from our "mates down under", we anticipate the new Sydney, AU based number will facilitate easier calling. You'll find our new AU number, hours information, as well as the local Florida, USA time on our Contact information page.
