All of our advertising and documentation is printed in black and white. (Unless the color is provided to us without added cost.)
You don’t pay for the glitzy look of full color advertisements and fancy packaging.
We sell lots of software.
BeamChek’s ease of use appeals to a larger market, including builders and home designers, not just engineers and architects. Our distribution is through national CAD software re-sellers, construction and technical bookstores, and internet software specialists. Word of mouth advertising generates lots of BeamChek sales too. Volume sales of BeamChek equate to lower costs and a savings for you.
Tech support is a major cost to software companies.
Our costs are low because most users find technical answers quickly by using the software ‘instant help buttons’ and the simple manual. We also ship several examples with the manual explaining how to enter loads into the program. Of course, we do respond quickly if you happen to have an engineering question or a computer problem.
Returns from dissatisfied customers are costly.
Returns of BeamChek are so rare that we are able to guarantee your satisfaction or you may return the manual and software within 30 days and you’ll receive a full refund (less shipping, of course).
You can have a voice in the continuing development of BeamChek.
Over sixty software enhancements in BeamChek are direct requests by designers from around the nation. Some folks call us on a regular basis with suggestions. When they call, they speak directly to the developer, Al Cohen, who is a registered architect specializing in residential remodeling and custom homes.
