Advance Steel customers point out as main benefits, the positive impact on their technical office productivity, the documentation quality improvement and the error reduction.

Regardless of the selected platform, all the essential functionality of the software is retained, as well as DWG® compatibility. This major change has also allowed GRAITEC to simplify the user interface by focusing on and organizing the industry specific functionality of the software and the BIM integration.
