Client and Customer Testimonials
Dr. Rudi Stocker, P.Eng., Senior Engineer/Developer, Fekete Associates Inc.
"The numbers we're getting have exceeded our expectations for accuracy..."
"We made the right decision in going with Virtual Materials Group. The thermo package has both been easy to work with on a standalone basis and as a link into our applications. The numbers we're getting have exceeded our expectations for accuracy. VMG has been very responsive to problems, receptive to suggestions, and worked closely with us to resolve any issues. We are already seeing significant benefits to ourselves and our clients from the incorporation of this package in our software and we look forward to an ongoing collaboration with VMG."
Professor Yoshinori Hisazumi, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Osaka University
"Where VMGSim excels in comparison to other simulators is its user-friendly process calculator and unit operations."
"At Osaka University, we use VMGSim as an invaluable teaching tool to help students understand exergy design study. Where VMGSim excels in comparison to other simulators is its user-friendly process calculator and unit operations. I will continue to use VMGSim for exergy design study, which no doubt will help the next generation of process engineers find new ways to save energy."
Doug Mackenzie, P.Eng. General Manager, Gas Liquids Engineering Ltd.
"We installed VMGSim on every workstation and haven't looked back."
"Our engineers evaluated several process software packages but everyone was so impressed with VMGSim's features and user support that we stopped testing the others. We installed VMGsim on every workstation and haven't looked back."
Dan Villarreal, Senior Process Engineer
"For simulation performance, results, and price, check out VMG—you will be amazed."
"Say what you wish about the current leading brand of process simulation. At the end of the day, it boils down to performance, results and price. Using several gas processing models, I compared VMG simulation results against a couple of well known competitors, the differences were negligible or insignificant. VMG's simulation results are every bit as good as the competition. To remain competitive in today's economy virtually every engineering company has employed cost-cutting measures. VMG can help because they are priced to compete. For simulation performance, results, and price check out VMG, you will be amazed."
Girish S. Joglekar, President, Batch Process Technologies
"Versatile, rigorous, and exhaustive."
"The chemical engineering thermodynamic software components developed by VMG are versatile, rigorous and exhaustive. We were able to integrate them into our packages in a very short time and they've provided tremendous added value to our customers and end users. What impressed us the most was a well thought out plan for future enhancements and commitment to customer support."

"Working with VMGSim is easily the best experience that I have had in my career with any new technical software and support.”
"We have used VMGSim to answer a variety of questions related to accounting in the hydrocarbon production and processing business. Learning to use it was an efficient undertaking and the support received from the people at Virtual Materials Group was responsive and always addressed the exact issue that was raised. Working with VMGSim is easily the best experience that I have had in my career with any new technical software and support.”
