ETemplate Systems: On top of virtual technology

At IWF, ETemplate had planned on emphasizing its Pro Series measuring systems, which measure spaces up to a 150-foot radius.

ETemplate Systems develops and sells laser based 3D measuring and modeling systems. In the wake of IWF being cancelled, the company is taking advantage of its technology expertise. “We have always augmented our tradeshow appearances and customer visits with virtual online services,” a spokesman said. “As primarily a software company, our products can be easily presented via web conferencing for product demonstrations, training, and technical support. Our Pro series laser hardware also provides live video streaming which easily adapts to the virtual world as well. During the pandemic we have continued to provide high quality services to our customers around the world, and will continue to do so as everyone learns how to cope in these new times.”

As soon as states began opening up in the beginning of May, ETemplate wanted to help the industry get back on its feet. “Since May 1 we have been promoting not only our remote services, but new financing options to help companies bring in new technology,” they said. “Companies have been hesitant to make large capital purchases, so we developed a subscription plan that reduces the upfront investment and lets companies pay for the technology using part of the increased profits they gain with the use of our system.”

ETemplate had planned to emphasize two key products at IWF. The first is the Pro Series measuring systems, which measures spaces up to a 150-foot radius from a single setup and can automatically stitch multiple measure locations together. The second product is Xpress, which can handle 98 percent of residential measures. It uses the same software as the Pro system but is focused on smaller spaces.

“A big part of our product growth is built around systems integration and Industry 4.0,” a spokesman said. “Both our Pro and Xpress systems provide direct data formats to Cabinet Vision, Mozaik, KCD, 2020, ProKitchen, CabMaster and MicroVellum, as well as DXF to all other design and CNC platforms.”

Using remote techniques for selling is nothing new at ETemplate, which has been offering virtual sales, support and training tools for its 20-year history. They urge businesses to visit their website at etemplatesystem.com and sign up for a live live virtual demonstration.
