New AllenCAD Software Projected To Help Market Leader Achieve Record Growth Through Delivery of Easy To Use Countertop Design and Automating Cutting Solution Using PowerCAD Embedded Technologies
Allen Datagraph, a leading designer and manufacturer of precision motion control and cutting systems for the sign making, monument, graphic arts and industrial markets is set for record growth this year following the official launch of their AllenCAD(TM) automated measuring and cutting solution. Driven by GiveMePower Corporation's (OTCBB: "GMPW") PowerCAD(R) Embedded(TM) computer-aided design technologies, AllenCAD fully automates the recording, design, plotting and computer-controlled cutting process to exacting standards for professionals in the burgeoning countertop manufacturing and installation markets.
Previously a cumbersome and labor-intensive process open to human error at several points, AllenCAD automates the entire countertop measurement-to-cutting process with laser-precise accuracy. Designed to be user-friendly and intuitive, users can become immediately productive with substantial cost savings seen from increased labor efficiencies and decreased material waste.
"The response has been truly phenomenal," states Mike Elliott, President of Allen Datagraph. "AllenCAD solves significant issues in this industry. What used to take 3 hours from field to finish, now takes about 15 minutes. We were already taking orders before we had a finished solution ready for market."
Elliott further comments, "The key for our company was the development time to market. We chose GiveMePower's PowerCAD Embedded engine as our technology development platform for that very reason-rapid deployment. It integrated with our technologies very easily, and we were able to drop in or strip out the components that we needed very quickly to complete our customized solution in 6 months."
With a market size conservatively estimated to be in excess of 13,000 potential companies in the granite-counter industry, Elliott comments, "We've only just scratched the surface."
AllenCAD Pro Version 6.0 is an easy to use, full-featured two and three-dimensional computer-aided design ("CAD") program offering the ultimate productivity tool for countertop design, presentation, cutting and installation. The addition of Allen DirectCut(TM) Tiling makes producing templates as easy as clicking a button. The user friendly one-step operation saves time and material. No other commercially available CAD program has this unique capability.
