Transcend’s mission is to transform the way engineering firms, utilities, and technology suppliers assess and design critical infrastructure.
As these firms adopt Transcend software they are able to lower costs, increase revenue (bid on more projects, faster, with more detail in less time), and free up engineers to evaluate innovative technologies and sustainable design approaches, transcending the standard and sub-optimal solutions of years past.
Our roots start in the water industry, where our CEO, Ari Raivetz, had spent decades investing in and building water businesses to help heal our broken planet. But his team of expert wastewater engineers had a problem: an unbelievable amount of detail was required to engineer innovative wastewater treatment infrastructure, which left little time for our engineers to innovate and focus on work they enjoyed.
Rather than copy pasting, Ari and the engineers collaborated with software developers to develop the Transcend Design Generator (TDG). This cloud-based, proprietary software is the only SaaS platform that fully automates the preliminary design of water, wastewater, and other critical infrastructure facilities in 8 hours or less.
With a limited set of configured, client-controlled inputs, the intelligent solution validates thousands of data points to ensure global quality and consistency of designs. The complex set of decisions then goes through several iterations before running complete static and dynamic process simulations. Once the set of parameters are confirmed, the software optimizes critical decision making to generate a full set of engineering quality documents including Process Schematics, P&IDs, BIM & 3D Models, Civil BOQ/BOM, and many others.
TDG has now designed over 10,000 water & wastewater treatment plants and has thousands of active users around the world.
With TDG I no longer feel like a glorified copy-paster. I now have the freedom to engineer.
Transcend is a fully-remote, diverse blend of 50+ infrastructure engineers, computer programmers, successful entrepreneurs, and incredibly talented operators.
