Our Customers and Their Continued Success

Thriving with Digital Processes & Intelligent Innovation

COVID-19 has brought about many challenges for businesses across the world, and many are struggling to cope with the extra challenges of the rapidly changing world.

Companies who are smart, agile, and open to change have not only survived this pandemic, they have thrived.

You may have seen our CEO, Glen Smith, talking about this in recent issues of DEVELOP3D magazine. As a team, we’ve used this time to create, innovate and improve. We’ve released a major version of our software, hosted a digital training event, worked with local education partners to inspire students, welcomed new team members, and just generally made better use of our travel time.

What’s made all of this possible, and our transition to home working smooth, is our investments in technology and our commitment to digital transformation.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve also been hearing from our customers who have been embracing change and thriving as a result.

Whether they’re changing their manufacturing to provide much-needed supplies, working on new product ideas, or using this time to improve and work on projects they don’t usually have time for, many of our customers are focusing on moving forward and working smarter.

PMF Solutions

PMF solutions are a manufacturer of customized industrial solutions such as workstations, trollies, material-handling, furniture, and more, based in Switzerland.

Ever since they first purchased DriveWorks, we’ve enjoyed seeing PMF’s success. They have taken a scalable approach to building their DriveWorks projects, starting small and building up over time. This approach has seen them move quickly with their DriveWorks projects and reap the benefits immediately.

Right at the beginning of lockdown, PMF proved their agility and quick thinking by designing Plexi separations. As they call it, their ‘spirit of survival’, meant they acted quickly to avoid any decrease in sales.

They even set up a DriveWorks configurator for the screens in a matter of days, so customers could easily configure and order screens that met their exact needs.

Most recently – PMF Systems proudly announced their partnership with Bauhaus, one of the largest players in the Swiss DIY market. Now customers can go to a Bauhaus center and configure a table.

They’ve made the whole process simple and efficient. The point of sale is right next to the woodcut. Using PMF’s DriveWorks configurator, customers can configure their custom design and buy the supplies in one shopping trip.

Throughout this pandemic, the PMF Systems team have really pulled together and are surviving as a result.

We look forward to seeing what they work on next!

Handling Systems International

Handling Systems International, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of Jib and Gantry Cranes, Workstation and Bridge Cranes in the US.

They have been working on Quotinator™, an online quote tool for dealers. Quotinator™ uses DriveWorks and SOLIDWORKS® to provide scaled drawings and quotes for their recently released NikoRail enclosed track cranes, as well as standard jib and gantry cranes.

Dealers can access Quotinator™ from anywhere, through the distributor login on H.S.I’s website.

Speaking about the project, Mike Rehor, Vice President of Sales and Marketing said:

“We’ve developed a very simple quote tool allowing dealers to access quotes and drawings any time of the day


“We’ve seen tremendous demand for our NikoRail enclosed track cranes and this tool will allow us to turn quotes and drawings around quickly as well as a bill of material to the shop floor once the order is entered, expediting the manufacturing process.”


“Dealers spoke and we listened. This tool will move us to the next level for our vision for H.S.I and elevate our national standing for our core products. These are exciting times for our company

H.S.I have invested in digital transformation and remained committed to their project throughout this pandemic, and it has certainly paid off.

They are another great example of an agile, tech-driven company responding to changing markets and thriving, and empowering their dealers to thrive too.

We also think it has a great name – Quotinator™!
