In 1998 we had a problem to solve: Venue and Event Mangers needed an accurate, user friendly and efficient method to produce in-house ‘to scale’ venue plan layouts. They needed to have the ability to create their own customised layout styles like dinner dance, theatre and classroom layouts without the steep learning curve associated with dedicated CAD software….and they needed to be able to create these plans and layouts fast.
In August 1998 CADplanners was born with Event Layout Software being introduced to the Hospitality & Events Industry, to date our client portfolio exceeds 400 worldwide.
Managing Directors Jay Laybutt & David Perry Foster have introduced CADplanners software to Australia, The United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Asia & New Zealand.
Merging their experience in Event Management, Engineering and software development, CADplanners have been able to combine their expertise in customising the Microsoft Visio software to suit the Hospitality and Events industry.
Using their Engineering and CAD expertise, CADplanners create the venues base floor plans either from electronic CAD files and/or digitise hardcopy architectural plans. With their Event Management experience, CADplanners ensure when customising a solution for a client, important components such as waiter access (minimum space between tables etc), no-build zones, dynamic shape development (the clients furniture shapes) are considered. Using these 3 main expertise levels ensures a CADplanners floor plan solution meets the needs of their client.
During 2010, CADplanners’ Events Layout Software was launched through TAFE NSW as part of the Hospitality & Events (Graduate & Diploma) Courses. The course has now extended into Travel & Tourism.
Through the success of CADplanners’ Event Layout Software another problem solving opportunity occurred. How to help organisation’s track their assets using an accurate, user friendly and efficient program just like Event Layout Software.
Visual Asset Management software was developed by CADplanners and launched to the market in 2008. The success of the initial launch into the Australian market has seen interest grow worldwide for this innovative program that helps organisations manage their assets saving them time and money.
