Additional language packs for French, Slovenian, Dutch and Czech are available. Other languages can be integrated with little effort in the context of a customer project.
For international use, not only the program languages are relevant. The software must also be able to adapt to the customary measuring system. Ingenious works with both the metric and imperial (Anglo-American) systems of measurement. Entries and calculations are possible in mm, cm and inch / foot.
Companies that sell across borders also benefit from the multi-currency capability of ingenious software.
