CloudCalc, Inc. would like to invite all those attending this year’s NASCC — the Steel Conference (March 22-24, 2017 in San Antonio, TX) to visit us in Booth 8095. Once there, you will learn exactly why CloudCalc — Structural Analysis in the Cloud –was selected by the AISC/Modern Steel Construction Magazine as one of the Hot Products of last year’s NASCC show!
CloudCalc, the Cloud-based structural analysis software, brings the following benefits to your steel design process:
- CloudCalc promotes collaboration. Learn how using CloudCalc ensures that all project team members have access to the same data and the same version of the software so everyone can work in sync. Plus structural models are easily shared with others!
- CloudCalc promotes mobility. See how CloudCalc allows you to access, modify, and analyze your models from any device that supports a modern browser – whether that is the PC in your office, or a PC at home or in your client’s office – or a Mac, a tablet (Android or iPad), or even a smartphone. Consider how much better informed your decisions could be if alternatives could be analyzed right on the spot with your mobile device, rather than waiting until you get access to your PC.
- CloudCalc is always up-to-date, all without IT support. CloudCalc has been adding new functionality at a rapid pace, with an update being released approximately every five weeks. The advantage of a cloud-based app is that you always have access to the latest version whenever (and from wherever) you log on — without having to wait for your IT department to perform any installation or upgrade. Many studies confirm that the cost of IT support for software typically runs between 2 and 5 times the license cost of that software, so consider how much money you could save by selecting software that requires no IT support at all.
- CloudCalc provides licensing flexibility. Engineering firms are used to experiencing a cyclic project workload – how easy is it for you to balance your software licenses against the cyclic workload? With the business model of perpetual licenses and mandatory maintenance charges that PC-based software typically offers, it is not very easy. Unlike PC-based software, the cloud embraces the pay-as-you-go SaaS (Software as a Service) model. With CloudCalc it is very easy to add licenses as needed, simply log on at cloudcalc.com and you are ready to go.
Come by Booth 8095 to see what CloudCalc can do for you! If you can’t attend the NASCC, please check out CloudCalc, the scalable, collaborative, cloud-based structural engineering software. www.cloudcalc.com – Structural Analysis in the Cloud.
