REI’S STAAD.Pro RECEIVES TOP HONORS FROM INDUSTRY PUBLICATIONS
YORBA LINDA, CA – August 19, 2003, Research Engineers International (REI), a division of netGuru, Inc. (Nasdaq: NGRU), provider of STAAD.Pro and other world class engineering software for structural design and analysis, today announced that it has received two prestigious awards within the past month recognizing STAAD.Pro 2003 with OpenSTAAD for its breakthrough technology and innovation in the engineering industry. Modern Steel Construction and CADENCE magazine bestowed STAAD.Pro 2003 with these unique honors.
With its new open architecture environment, STAAD.Pro has become the standard on which many of the larger engineering firms customize their products as well as integrate STAAD.Pro with other third party applications to fit their specific needs. Modern Steel Construction, a leading magazine for the structural engineering community, in its August 2003 issue, awarded STAAD.Pro its annual “Hot Products Award” in recognition of the OpenSTAAD technology enabling engineers to customize the product and integrate it with other applications using simple scripting languages within the STAAD.Pro environment. CADENCE magazine, a leading publication for the Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and mechanical engineering industry, recognized STAAD.Pro 2003, in its July 2003 issue, with its “Editors’ Choice Award,” hailing STAAD.Pro 2003 as one of the products that raise the bar on technology innovation and development quality. Others who have won this award include mainstay CAD companies such as Autodesk, Bentley and PTC (Parametric Technology).
Commenting on the development, Mr. Amrit Das, Chairman & CEO of netGuru said, “STAAD.Pro continues to be the world leader in structural analysis and design software. Two prestigious awards from leading publications in different vertical industries reinforce this claim. More importantly, the awards indicate that STAAD.Pro’s open architecture technology is being widely accepted by engineers looking for flexibility in their software. It is almost impossible to fulfill the requirements of customers in 85 countries. With the OpenSTAAD technology, users can take matters into their own hands and utilize STAAD.Pro’s flexible architecture to accommodate their modeling and design requirements. We are honored that our technology has been acknowledged by organizations that have continued to serve our industries for more than two decades.”
