Interview with Todd Hicks, Wolters Kluwer, tool builder

This week’s podcast features Todd Hicks from Wolters Kluwer.  I’ve been looking forward to this podcast for a long time. Todd Hicks has been an Arbortext community member for a long time. Todd presented at AUGI and at PTC/User conferences. He started out supporting a division of Wolters Kluwer but now supports their global Arbortext deployment. He’s built custom applications and extensions to Arbortext that even PTC wanted (then developed).  Long-time community members never miss a presentation by Todd Hicks or one of his team at WK. They’re always doing something special, innovative, and technically spectacular.

It’s been my pleasure to get to know Todd better over the years and it’s a greater pleasure to share his knowledge, experience, and advice with the community through this podcast today. Continue reading “Interview with Todd Hicks, Wolters Kluwer, tool builder”
