Engineered Software Releases New PIPE-FLO Version 12

Lacey, WA, April 06, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Beginning February 28, consumers will be able to utilize the enhanced user experience that PIPE-FLO Professional 12 has to offer, including a new fully customizable user interface and a wide range of workflow improvements.

“This is more significant a release than a few new features and buttons, it’s a rethinking of how the PIPE-FLO program can fit into our customer’s job. This rewrite is more than two years in the making and a complete overhaul of the software’s programming code as well as user interface, will come as a welcome surprise to some of our long-time users,” says Michael Blondin, Chief Operating Officer at Engineered Software. “The program rewrite allows improved program release scheduling as well as more flexibility in adding new features in the future and opens up increased program integration opportunities.”

PIPE-FLO Professional 12 features an entirely new dynamic Start Screen that gives one-click access to the most recent documents, tools and announcements users care about most. Creating a new piping system model can now be started without first entering technical design data. New licensing management has also been introduced to increase security for customers.

“Each change made to the workflow and user interface was based on years of feedback and research from our customers and support engineers. We took into consideration how our customers preferred to use the previous versions and how they perform their jobs. I think we have created the most intuitive version of PIPE-FLO product yet,” says Christy Bermensolo, Vice President of Engineering for Engineered Software, Inc. “It has never been so easy to create a system from scratch!” she said excitedly.

PIPE-FLO Professional 12 is Customizable

· New User Interface. The PIPE-FLO Professional 12 interface is fully customizable with moveable and dock-able windows.
· Custom Printed Reports. PIPE-FLO Professional 12 has a new Report Designer and comes with 6 standard reports.
· FLO-Sheet Text. Now all text on the FLO-Sheet can be adjusted to fit your needs, including Font, Style and size for individual items or system wide.
· Password Protection. PIPE-FLO project files can now be password protected and opened in both the Demo and Full Versions of the software. The Viewer program will no longer be needed to create “View-only” projects for sharing.
· Default Project Files. Create and save default project files to streamline the creation of new piping system models.
· DataLink Export. Export model information to any application that can read ODBC databases.
· Change System Units Anytime. Piping system model units can now be changed at any time during the design process and all unit conversions adhere to NIST.

PIPE-FLO Professional 12 is Intuitive

· FLO-Sheet Functionality. The familiar FLO-Sheet in PIPE-FLO Professional 12 may look untouched, but is truly the next generation in PIPE-FLO modeling. Copy and Paste, Group Select and Group Edit all mean that designing a system is a snap.
· Streamlined Pump Selection. Integrated pump selection is now completed in fewer steps, meaning a system designer can work even faster and access the largest pump database in the world directly through the PIPE-FLO Professional 12 program.
· Property Grid. The new Property Grid in PIPE-FLO Professional 12 streamlines design data entry and minimizing the dialog boxes found in earlier versions. Here users can view calculations results, change device data, adjust text settings, modify symbol settings and create notes.
· Messages Window. All the calculation messages and warning are now available in one accessible location and include full details to easily identify and resolve issues within the piping system model.
· List View Window. Keep all system design information in the forefront.
· Dynamic Interaction. The information between the FLO-Sheet, Property Grid, message Window and List View Window keeps the focus on the selected device in the piping system.
· In-depth Help File. PIPE-FLO Professional 12’s Help file is more than just a place to go for assistance. The new Help File includes details about the programs calculation methodology and tips for using expanded DataLink functionality.
