Choosing a Solution
F.H.Brundle wanted a software that would allow customers to configure systems to their own dimensions, creating accurate quotes and detailed drawings in minutes, saving their customers hours of work and helping to eliminate mistakes.
As they are adding products all the time, it was important for F.H.Brundle to find a solution that they could set up and manage themselves.
After much research, F.H.Brundle decided that DriveWorks was the best software for their needs.
At DriveWorks World 2018 Richard, Design Office Manager, and Liz, CAD Manager at F.H.Brundle took to the stage to show how they have used DriveWorks to create Liveconfiguratorâ„˘.
Liveconfiguratorâ„˘ is F.H.Brundleâ€™s online 3D configurator for their internal teams, distributors and customers.
Since DriveWorks World 2018, Liveconfiguratorâ„˘ has gone live and has been very well received.
