ARC A Engineering Solutions Ltd. is a company working in the field of Electrical design engineering (installation, programming, safety systems integration …) which operates in the UK and the rest of Europe.
The company chose SEE Electrical for its ease of use, the wide range of functionalities offered and the ability to expand functions. Moreover, the technical support and ease of access to that support was a key point for Arc A Engineering Solutions.
IGE+XAO’s Electrical CAD software is used for the production of new electrical designs, and to upgrade the existing drawings in PDF, DWG/DXF and paper formats.
According to Richard Kear, Director of Arc A Engineering Solutions, SEE Electrical is both powerful and easy to use. It can be used as a basic package to make minor modifications to existing drawings by personal maintenance, even if produced with another package, but also as a full blown package to produce a full set of comprehensive drawings for a panel builder to produce to.
“Putting the quality of the product to one side, the level of support provided by the UK is outstanding. Being a contractor, I have tight deadlines and work some unusual hours, nevertheless, the UK office has never failed to support me when I have needed assistance. IGE+XAO Ltd’s manager has depth knowledge of the product and provides us excellent service.
In times when he struggled, he arranged a call from the service centre in France who is also excellent (top level of technical support on this product…second to none).
The product needs no selling, just download the demo and ask M. Avezard for a couple of videos showing you some features and you’ll be sold.
From a price point, it is cheaper than some of its German competitors but loses none of its functionalities. Great product!”

Chemring Countermeasures needed an Electrical CAD Software package that delivered quality results, was intuitive to use, and was competitively priced, for these reasons they selected SEE Electrical.
For George Williams, the main benefit of SEE Electrical is that “it is a very user friendly program. The core program can be added to the purchase of optional adds-on packs and is available in different levels. This gives the flexibility to purchase what is required for the task without having to buy a high end program that contains functions that you do not need but you nevertheless have to pay for. The program’s manual is comprehensive and support is available from the manufacturer that is prompt and responsive.”
“I would thoroughly recommend this program to anyone looking for an Electrical CAD package whether they are an experienced user or an absolute beginner. It is easy to use yet powerful, and creates accurate well laid out drawings with a minimum of fuss”, said Mr. Williams.
