Best of Class Tool Tests

Why take an expensive risk with enterprise and design tools when we can test them for you. Welcome to Plasmechanica’s Living Lab. Save the frustration of costly mistakes and sub-optimal choices.


Make sure-footed software choices, because errors cost time, and money.

Don’t just take our word for it. Follow the progress of our case studies as they produce the kinds of results you want.

We’ll demonstrate best-of-breed tools. You’ll see them in action – in some cases, in side by side comparisons.

Not every tool with a common purpose will do things in the same way. Our objective is to show you the variations so you can make appropriate choices for your specific needs. We’ll highlight the pros and cons.

Decision Factors

Measure twice, cut once


There are many needs common to all business, but yours is unique. You have strategic goals that set you apart from your competition. The tools you select must reflect your specific objectives and fit your operational processes.

This is no time for random choices and spontaneous response. As the carpenters say, “Measure twice before you cut.”


Our tests focus on market leading tools. But just because they’re popular doesn’t mean they’re right for you. We apply exacting standards in key areas that include:

  • Cost of entry
  • Scaling costs
  • Utility & performance
  • Ease of use
  • Integration
  • Technical support
