Introducing the SIMUL8 Online beta

Today we’re thrilled to announce the beta launch of SIMUL8 Online. For the first time ever, not only will you be able to run, visualize and analyze simulations online, but you can also build entire simulations in a browser without the need to install any software!

SIMUL8 Online gives you the same leading feature set, drag and drop interface and fast results as our flagship desktop simulation software. It’s a powerful and unique combination of 25 years of feature development and modern, flexible working – in the cloud and in collaboration with others.

As well as easily being able to build simulations securely wherever you have access to a browser (yes, even on Macs!), with SIMUL8 Online you’ll always be on our very latest release without having to go through IT to install updates. But don’t worry, our desktop software isn’t going anywhere. SIMUL8 Online is designed to complement SIMUL8 for desktop, giving our users even more ways to drive process improvement in their organizations with the power of simulation.

25 years of SIMUL8 feature development, now delivered completely online

This beta launch marks the latest milestone in SIMUL8’s industry-disrupting history. Founded in 1994, we made simulation more accessible as the first to offer an intuitive drag and drop interface that made it easier and faster to build visual simulations. Roll forward to 2010, and in another first, we delivered the ability to run and share your simulations online, completely download-free. And now with this exciting launch of the SIMUL8 Online beta, the way our users build, communicate and engage with simulation is set to radically transform again.

Frances Sneddon, SIMUL8 Corporation CTO says: “We are proud to launch the world’s first online process simulation tool with an unrivaled depth and breadth of business modeling options. We always strive to set industry trends and not just follow them. That’s what guides our product R&D and sets us apart.” She adds, “Our users use our software for continuous improvement in their organizations and we believe our software should continuously improve too because our users deserve the best. SIMUL8 Online is another prime example of evolving our products to exceed our users’ expectations.”

“Great ideas can strike in the unlikeliest of places. More and more, technology is enabling people to put their ideas into action anywhere. SIMUL8 Online enables you to build, run, experiment immediately and show your simulations to stakeholders no matter where you are. If you want everyone to be involved in decision-making you need to get simulation into the hands of many, not the few. The most effective and efficient way to do that is online.” adds Frances.

Laura Reid, SIMUL8 Corporation CEO says: “SIMUL8 Online is another huge step in helping every organization to embrace this decision-making power of simulation. Wherever and whenever inspiration strikes, SIMUL8 will be available to help you test, refine and implement your process improvement ideas.”

“This is an exciting time because the beta is only the beginning; it is a stepping stone to even greater things. This is the start of a new era of simulation where the possibilities are endless. From the students using our software in college to our loyal users of 25 years, this online technology offers something for everyone and we can’t wait to tell you more about what we’ve got planned over the next 12 months!”

Ready to get your hands on the beta?

The beta roll-out starts today and users on SIMUL8 Annual Maintenance will be first to receive exclusive access via email invitation. For those not on Annual Maintenance, you can register your interest to take part in the second phase of testing in the coming months.

We can’t wait to have you join us on this exciting journey and to hear your valued feedback over the next few months. If you have any questions, please take a look at our SIMUL8 Online FAQs page or get in touch with our team.
