For over 30 years, Cabnetware has been a leading software for the woodworking market, helping customers to design and manufacture their products. Since joining the Vero (Planit) group of products in 2001, it has been developed alongside Cabinet Vision, which was acquired in 1999. Both of which have been faithfully distributed and supported by Planit Canada.
More and more of our new customers are choosing Cabinet Vision when evaluating the two. In fact, that number is now over 96%. Additionally, a large percentage of Cabnetware customers are adding Cabinet Vision to their production processes. While we believe that Cabnetware, as a product, is capable of meeting the needs of a number of cabinet manufacturers today, it is also clear that the product better equipped to drive the future of technological developments in woodworking software is Cabinet Vision.
With this in mind, Vero has made the decision to discontinue the sales of Cabnetware products. The upcoming version 14 release, scheduled for this fall, will be the final release of the product. All Cabnetware customers will have the opportunity to purchase this version.
Let us be clear, this decision was not made lightly, and we understand the impact it will have on many of you. However, we are confident that this is the right decision and is necessary to ensure that you will continue to receive the best products and services possible.
Both Cabinet Vision and our award-winning S2M center are truly the best solutions available, and putting all of their resources into these products will allow Vero to make them continually better suited to meet your design and manufacturing needs. We absolutely want to keep you as a customer while providing you with the best we have to offer. Transitioning to Cabinet Vision will not be the best direction for some of you, but for a vast majority it will be. Your local software consultant will work with you to create a transition plan that meets your shop’s specific needs today and into the future. We are also creating customized training courses to make the transition as smooth and seamless as possible.
We will continue to provide support for the Cabnetware product until April 30, 2017.
We encourage you to contact your local Planit Canada consultant to begin planning for your company’s future and to address any questions you may have.
