Configura unveils new industry products and a faster CET
Configura releases new CET industry products tailored for the commercial interiors, material handling and kitchen and bath industries
LINKÖPING, SWEDEN—May 17, 2021— To provide value for professionals and companies that design spaces and sell configurable products in the commercial interiors, material handling and kitchen and bath industries, Configura announced today it now offers its signature software product, CET Designer, as three CET industry products: CET Commercial Interiors, CET Material Handling and CET Kitchen & Bath.
“Our CET industry products deliver customized solutions for professionals in the commercial interiors, material handling and kitchen and bath industries based on research and Configura’s expertise serving these industries for over three decades,” Configura CEO Stefan Persson said. “User experience is at the heart of what we do at Configura and our CET industry products open up the possibilities to drive industry standards while making the sales and design process even more efficient for our global user community.”
Since 1990, Configura’s space-planning software products have transformed the way people design spaces around the globe by making the design and sales process fast, efficient and accurate. Configura’s transition to offering CET as three industry products allows the software company to offer an industry-focused user experience, making it easier for the end user to design, specify and visualize configurable products for spaces within their industry.
Configura’s release of the new CET industry products is in conjunction with the company’s bi-annual release of CET. This spring’s release, CET 12.0, also features enhanced rendering capabilities and faster performance.
Introducing three CET industry products tailored for the user
Whether specifying office furniture, engineering pallet racking for a warehouse or designing a dream kitchen, professionals who create these spaces all have unique needs when working within CET. Offering CET as three industry products improves the user experience by offering tools, features and functionality designed for the user’s workflow and the products they sell within their industry. This change allows Configura to focus its development efforts based on industry needs and standards to provide the best possible user experience.
CET Commercial Interiors
From the office to classrooms to health care environments, CET Commercial Interiors is an all-in-one tool that makes it easy and fast to produce high-quality 2D and 3D renderings, error-free quotes and impressive presentations. The software is used by designers, salespeople and dealerships to design, specify and visualize products for commercial spaces.
CET Material Handling
Selling material handling solutions is a complex process. CET Material Handling simplifies and accelerates the sales process by bringing engineers, project managers and salespeople together into one software to design, build, implement and sustain material handling solutions. The software automates common tasks, enhances collaboration across departments and reduces drawing time from months to days, and in some cases, hours.
CET Kitchen & Bath
CET Kitchen & Bath brings kitchen specialists, salespeople and businesses into one software to design, specify and visualize products for kitchens and bathrooms using real product data and pricing. The software makes it easy to go to market quickly with new products and decreases the time needed to train new kitchen specialists.
“We transformed CET Designer into three industry-focused products that now have a unique user interface, features and tools that meet the needs of professionals in the commercial interiors, material handling and kitchen and bath industries,” Configura’s CET Product Owner Maylee Lai said. “Offering these industry products allow us to prioritize functionality and development for each product, ensuring we offer the features that are most important for each industry.”
A faster CET and enhanced rendering capabilities
With CET 12.0, Configura made significant improvements to CET’s rendering capabilities by offering enhanced lighting tools that make spaces come to life within renderings.
CET 12.0 also includes several time-saving updates and faster performance, including faster file import and text improvements, which optimizes CET for an even more efficient design experience for the user. Additionally, dimensions between objects are now automatically updated when an object is moved, stretched, scaled or rotated – saving time for the user when adjusting a drawing.
