Customer Retention Higher Than Ever at 100%

We simply canít get higher than that! More and more civil engineers are trusting Civil Designer for their critical design work and our client retention was 100% last year! We only experienced one SA company being bought out by an Australian company who dictated they use other software that they previously owned. However, we know and are aware that the SA guys are still using our older 2011 version as they say it's better than the latest software release of our competitors. So technically our client retention was 100%. Our clients are making it clear that they simply can't get the job done as efficiently without Civil Designer. It's only a matter of time before companies who experience other software revert back to Civil Designer and often consolidate throughout their branches. With customer loyalty this high, we know we are doing something right!

Exchange Rate makes Civil Designer even better value compared to imported products

Not only are we the number 1 solution for civil engineering infrastructure software, but due to exchange rates, our software is comparatively very well priced too! Our local clients benefit from not having to pay higher prices due the weakening Rand, and our international clients are having a field day at being able to buy our software at a cheaper rate due to the Rand's value... it's a win win situation for all! At current exchange rates being above 10.7 to the dollar, we are aware of the fact that our competitors are going to do another price hike before end of February, so you will probably be looking at 2 price hikes for the year! Ouch! Not with us however ;)

Make sure you purchase additional copies of Civil Designer before the end of the month when we have our annual price increase. You can purchase direct through one of our account managers. Email with your requirements.
