Business Description

Industry: Application Software » Software - Application
Compare: » details
Exa Corp is incorporated in the state of Delaware. The company was founded in 1991 and began its operations in 1992. The company develops, sell and support simulation software and services that vehicle manufacturers use to enhance the performance of their products, reduce product development costs and improve the efficiency of their design and engineering processes. Its solutions enable its customers to augment or replace inefficient and expensive methods of evaluating alternative designs, such as wind tunnel testing using physical prototypes, with accurate digital simulations that are more useful and timely. Its core product, PowerFLOW, is an innovative software solution for simulating complex fluid flow problems, including aerodynamics, thermal management, and aeroacoustics, or wind noise. PowerFLOW relies upon proprietary technology that it refers to as Digital Physics, which is based on algorithms known as the lattice Boltzmann method. Its proprietary technology enables PowerFLOW to predict complex fluid flows with a level of reliability comparable to or better than physical testing, with results that are more accurate and useful than those of alternative computational fluid dynamics, or CFD, methods. The company is currently focusing mainly on the ground transportation market, including manufacturers in the passenger vehicle, highway truck, off-highway vehicle and train markets, as well as their suppliers. Over 80 manufacturers currently utilizing its products and services, including 13 of the global top 15 passenger vehicle manufacturer groups such as BMW, Ford, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan, Porsche, Renault, Toyota and Volkswagen/Porsche; truck and off-highway vehicle manufacturers such as AGCO, Hyundai, Kenworth, Kobelco, MAN, Peterbilt, Scania and Volvo; and suppliers to these manufacturers, such as Cummins, Denso and Magna Steyr. The company is also beginning to explore other markets in which it believes the capabilities of PowerFLOW have broad application, such as the aerospace, oil and gas production, chemical processing, architecture, engineering and construction, power generation, biomedical and electronics industries. The company sells its products and services primarily through direct sales force, including sales executives and applications engineering teams deployed near its customers in the United States, Europe, Japan and Korea, through distributors in China and India and through a sales agent in Brazil. The company's sources of revenue come from License revenue as well as from project revenue. Its revenues mainly consist of subscription fees for access to simulation solutions under annual, usage-based licenses. The primary driver of its license revenue is its core product, PowerFLOW, which is an innovative software solution for simulating complex fluid flow problems, including aerodynamics, thermal management, and aeroacoustics. It also derives revenue from fees for project-based services, which it perfo
