Project software now available in free trial versions

05 February, 2020

The computer-aided engineering specialist Eplan is offering free trial versions of its eView and eBuild software packages, and is planning to release a series of webinars and training videos to help users to make the most of the trials.

“We believe we have outstanding solutions that can revolutionise the way engineers think, work and collaborate”, says Eplan’s UK director, Ken Christie. “With our range of free value-added products, we want to encourage as many people as possible to get involved and try for themselves the benefits of eView and eBuild.”

eView allows designers and users to work closely together on projects, helping to speed up the design review procedure as well as reducing the need for design revisions and reworking, resulting in cost savings. It also allows engineering projects generated using the Eplan Platform to be accessed via the cloud. Project data can be viewed anytime, anywhere, and by anyone who with approved access.

A red-lining function allows customers, shopfloor workers and maintenance engineers to suggest changes to a project, which are then accessible to the design engineers.
