ArtiCAD – Easy does it!
Continuously developed over the
course of more than twenty years, ArtiCAD-Pro and its sister product, BathCAD, rank amongst the widely used CAD software products for the KBB sector. More than 7,000 systems have been supplied in the UK alone, and the products are also storming ahead in Australia, South Africa, Ireland and the USA. From independent designers to major industry names, housebuilders and retailers, ArtiCAD’s products are helping our customers to sell more, and sell more easily, every single day of their working lives.
Making life easy
And probably the word ‘easy’ is one which has the most resonance in the KBB sector. Software should be easy to use, regardless of your previous computer experience. It should make it easier for you to design (and sell) your concepts, without forcing you to compromise your creative ideas or skills. It should make it easier for you to deal with manufacturers and other suppliers – armed with an accurate plan and parts list – and when you arrive on site, it should make it easier for you to install the new room without any unpleasant surprises.
Easy is, and always has been, the watchword for ArtiCAD’s products. They are so easy to use – a kitchen or bathroom can be designed in just ten minutes by anyone (without previous computer knowledge) following the one day training course which is included as part of the purchase price. And crucially, ArtiCAD-Pro is proven to make it easier for you to sell your designs to your customers. Multiple vibrant, accurate designs can be produced at the click of a button – including working plans, elevations, multiple 3D perspectives, photorealistic impressions and detailed parts lists. Your customers will know exactly what their new room will look like – giving them the confidence to give you the go-ahead.
Partnerships that please
Another major component of our commitment to ‘easiness’ is our Supplier Partnership Programme. This is going from strength to strength and is certainly making the business of designing and selling kitchens and bathrooms as easy as possible for you. The days of pulling in generic objects for your designs are rapidly becoming a distant memory. With ArtiCAD, the number and breadth of our manufacturer-specific graphics – ranging from doors, cabinets, storage, lighting, tiling, accessories, floors, appliances and much more - is allowing our customers to create even more realistic and stunning rooms. Designers can quickly and easily search through the catalogues and then drag and drop their selected items into the design.
One new partnership which is proving very exciting is our relationship with the internationally-renowned fittings manufacturer, Blum, which will enable our thousands of worldwide ArtiCAD-Pro users to access Blum’s ‘Dynamic Space’ kitchen zoning concept. Designers will be able to quickly and easily specify Blum’s ORGA-LINE products for the internal organisation of drawers, pull-outs and cabinets that maximise the area and volume for greater storage capacity. ORGA-LINE products include expanding plate holders, knife and spice racks, and foil and film dispenser/cutters.
Using the new ArtiCAD/Blum partnership, designers will automatically ensure their design reflects Blum’s ‘Dynamic Space’ zones. This concept allows kitchens to be fully customised to suit individual needs and lifestyles, resulting in more comfort, functionality and enjoyment of the new room.
Partnerships with hardware manufacturers are enabling us to deliver ArtiCAD software on a wide range of different devices, such as iPADs, Smart phones and touch screens – making it easier for our customers to design whenever and wherever they may be.
