Transcend for

EPCs, AECs, and Consultants

As the industry transforms, the amount of "free" engineering required during the pursuit of new business is rapidly increasing.  These non-billable hours are a significant burden, eating into margins and demotivating key staff with extra hours that tilt the work-life-balance scale in the wrong direction.  At the same time clients are demanding you assess more and new options at the early project stages, while the hours allocated for this work are never enough to do a thorough analysis.  TDG significantly reduces resources spent during pursuits and early project stages by letting software do the monotonous aspects of design – increasing margins and freeing up engineers for more innovative, cost recoverable work.
