At the start of the new year, I want to thank you for taking the time to engage with us and for helping us deliver on a successful 2016!
Reflecting on the past year, we have a lot to be thankful for. First, 2016 was an important year of change for SCIA. We established a new management team and together we developed the SCIA core purpose to delight our customers by helping them create the best structural designs. We created our "2020 Vision and Strategy" and started to integrate this into the departmental strategies. We released SCIA Engineer 16 and 16.1 and both were very well received in the market. We did many conferences and webinars, helping us to connect with you and to get to know you and your needs better.
Looking forward into the new year, we will continue to build on our core values – we place our customers first, drive innovation and craftsmanship forward and do so with a results-oriented mindset while ensuring we walk the talk. Our product leadership strategy is focused on improving your productivity by making the end-to-end workflows better, more automated and easier to use.
A highlight of 2017 will be our next User Contest "The Art of Structural Design"' and we invite you all to participate in this exciting opportunity to get recognition for your projects. Registration is still open, so make sure your projects are entered in time!
We are more than ever dedicated to help you create the best structural designs and develop the products you need now and in the future.
Excited to serve you in 2017, we wish you and your family a happy and healthy New Year!
CEO of SCIA
