Hear From Past Winners

“Being able to share the technology in an open fashion with someone who is not a customer or an internal stakeholder – someone who is purely looking for a sign of a great game-changing technology - is what makes the Automotive News PACE Award unique, and, in my opinion, highly respected.”

“Our patented technology that won the PACE Award changed the benchmarking business. What was once dominated by static pictures and metadata of vehicle subsystems became an engineering process. Suppliers could run their simulations and cost analysis using Caresoft’s digital-twin OEM. This is what our customers wanted, not pictures. And the PACE Award for Caresoft took the message to the world.”
