When Thomas Riki of Haute Design started his search for a software package to compliment his CNC purchase, he knew they needed a solution with a strong cabinetry and joinery capability. He also wanted to streamline his process for bespoke work and customer shapes that were common in high-end kitchen & bath projects, and one-offs.
As the demand for improved efficiencies continued to grow, business owner, Thomas Riki, knew it was time to make a change to help him keep up with the complex and detailed nature of his work. With a purchase of a CNC already made, it was clear that the next step was integrating new software to drive their production.
“It really does offer the full package from design through to CNC production for everything we do and beyond.”
“I’ve been keeping tabs on Microvellum for a number of years, waiting for the right time to make the leap. The team from Microvellum was good at not pressuring me into software until I was ready…” said Thomas. “When we began our trial of the software, we found it to be easier to use than expected. It offered us the tools to not only streamline our current process but also would prove to provide us with the power to do more within one platform.”
“Microvellum delivers a strong, user-definable library of cabinets that we easily adapted to match our existing construction methods. Another strong advantage we now have is the ability to communicate with architects and clients within the industry standard design and engineering platform – AutoCAD®”
“It really does offer the full package from design through to CNC production for everything we do and beyond. We can even provide our clients with phenomenal, realistic renderings of their projects. Our renderings not only help us sell our concepts to our clients, they also help our team on the production floor – allowing them to see how the individual components fit together as well as the entire finished project.”
“In total, Microvellum has been very good in helping us grow. It has allowed us to work to the design standards of the architect and designers who fuel our business.”
“The ongoing support we receive from the Microvellum team is exceptional. They offer free, web-based educational seminars as well as locally hosted events – these are perhaps the best place to learn as you are surrounded by other users. When an issue comes up, their support team is always there to help, responding quickly to help me through my challenge.
“Since we’ve integrated Microvellum, we’ve seen our production errors reduced and shop workflows improve. In total, I’d say we’ve seen a 25% improvement in our process. Our team works better now and we can produce more work with higher efficiency.”
“In total, Microvellum has been very good in helping us grow. It has allowed us to work to the design standards of the architect and designers who fuel our business. It provides us with a competitive advantage, enabling us to work faster and deliver quality products on time and within budget. For what we do, I believe it’s simply the best product on the market.”
