IES structural software tools are customer-proven and customer-driven with sophisticated features, but they are very simple for engineers to use.
We pay attention to details, like allowing you to enter data in any unit system. We provide immediate error-checking of input to prevent minor errors from becoming major mistakes later.
Software should stay out of your way. Engineering is difficult enough! You do not have time or energy to be jumping through 'software hoops' or struggling with 'black box' errors. Our products implement only the most commonly required features. Not everybody uses the same codes, so building codes and specifications are optional and customizable.
IES tools are designed to keep you on task. We have succeeded, because over 3000 engineers use our products every day. By the way, we handle all the technical support for all our customers and free-trial users in just a couple hours a day. Our tools just work.
Not every structural project is a cookie-cutter building. You need customization of shapes and materials. You need high quality reports are customizable and help you validate your work. And you need tools that integrate well with spreadsheets, BIM (Building Information Modeling) tools and CAD programs.
IES tools are flexible enough that you can build, create, improvise and solve a very wide range of problems with a minimum of fuss.
With VisualAnalysis and ShapeBuilder alone you can solve just about any civil/structural problem. We offer specialized products to get you in-and-out of a design much more quickly--if you need it, but these two 'general' tools are the hammer and screwdriver in your structural engineer's toolbox.
