Testimonial

"We have been very happy with STRUMIS. It has worked together efficiently, from the preliminary take-off, to the detailing and fabrication, and finally erection; the material can be tracked, even if the piece marks change. This system is also great for keeping track of older inventory in order to utilise all the materials available. Also - out of all the estimating programs I have used this is by far the best."
Rick Blattner - Blattner Steel Company
