Ensoft, Inc., was established in Austin, Texas in 1985 by Dr. Lymon C. Reese with the principal aim of developing and applying computer-based solutions to complex engineering problems and has since built a strong reputation as a leader in this area. Ensoft has applied advanced technology, much of it based on recent research, in the writing of software for the solution of complex problems that arise in geotechnical and structural engineering. Notable among Ensoft's computer programs are those that address the analysis and design of foundations employing piles and drilled shafts.
CESDb currently lists 15 software developed by Ensoft, including LPILE, GROUP, APILE, DynaN, StablPro, UTEXAS.

APILE is used to compute the axial capacity, as a function of depth, of a driven pile in clay, sand, or mixed-soil profiles.
DynaMat uses a three dimensional hybrid method to estimate the equivalent dynamic stiffness and damping of machine foundations.
DYNAN can be used for the dynamic analysis under transient and random loading in the time domain.
Program DynaPile was developed to compute the dynamic stiffness of single piles or pile groups.
Process raw CPT data, generating and exporting soil layering and properties to LPILE.
2D finite element analysis with ability to perform soil-structure interaction and staged construction.
GeoMat is aimed at the solution under static loading of two classes of problems encountered in structural engineering: a soil-supported mat or a soil-supported structural slab.
GROUP has been well accepted as an useful design tool for analyzing the behavior of piles in a group subjected to both axial and lateral loadings.
LPILE is a special-purpose program based on rational procedures for analyzing a pile under lateral loading using the p-y method.
PYWALL considers soil-structure interaction by using a beam-column model and can analyze the behavior of a flexible retaining wall or soldier-pile wall with or without tiebacks or bracing systems.
SETOFF analyzes foundation settlement of both, shallow and deep foundations, using commonly-accepted procedures.
SHAFT is a computer program used to evaluate the axial capacity and the short-term, load-settlement curves of drilled shafts or bored piles in various types of soils.
STABLPRO has been developed specifically for users to ease their modeling process and to enhance the graphical observation of slope boundaries and critical slip surfaces.
TZPILE implements the well-known method of soil-structure interaction, commonly called the t-z method, where t-z and Q-w curves are used respectively for load transfers in side resistance and end bearing.
UTexas4 is a computer software application for computing the stability of earth and earth-rock slopes and embankments.
