GUELPH, Ontario, Canada, October 15, 2009 – Cadsoft Corporation, the leading developer of Building Information Modeling (BIM) software for the professional residential design market, today announced an integration partnership with 20-20 Technologies Inc., the world leader in 3D interior design and furniture manufacturing software, that will allow designers, remodelers, and builders to communicate with the kitchen and bath design industry.
Phase one of the 20-20/Cadsoft solution now allows Clients who use Cadsoft’s Envisioneer software the ability to pass data to the 20-20 Design system, thus saving time in having to redraw the structure.
The two organizations are committed to further integration efforts to better serve their respective industries bringing together designers, builders, remodelers, and kitchen and bath designers. This integration will also be instrumental for the lumber and building materials (LBM) dealer network for transferring data within the various facets of the supply network.
“Cadsoft is excited about working with 20-20 on this collaborative relationship” states Brad Finck, Vice President of Cadsoft Corporation. Both Client bases will benefit from the increased collaboration ability, which is the first step towards improving the communication of the construction industry as a whole. By reducing data duplication at each phase of the design process, we will also save our Client’s time and reduce potential errors.”
Craig Yamauchi, Executive Vice President of North American Sales Manufacturing & Residential Solutions for 20-20 Technologies adds “working with Cadsoft is a natural extension in our end-to-end solution integrating our entire design, sales, supply chain and manufacturing processes. By opening up communication with additional segments of the construction market, we become more effective to our core interior design business as well as servicing new markets.”
