Ice Edge Business Solutions’ i-Cube software helps casegoods and millwork manufacturers reduce planning and design time by allowing them to accurately design a millwork layout in front of clients quickly.

Element, a Canadian project management provider, recently began using i-Cube, and has bidded on a $4 million project in three days with only one designer.

“The i-Cube turned the bid from a two-week project into a three-day project,” said Element’s Thom Hinton. “Before the i-Cube, with traditional millwork, we wouldn’t have been able to create images or renderings in the timeframe the client wanted. Now we are able to create the renderings, so the clients were able to see exactly what we were pricing.”

The i-Cube allows clients to instantly see their design in 3D in exact sizes, finishes and hardware for each component. All the information required to make an informed decision – pricing, finishes and dimensions, is captured by the i-Cube in ICE software, a 3D design and manufacturing platform.

i-Cube offers clients the abilities to:

·        Reduce planning and design time

·        Accurately design any millwork layout quickly in front of clients

·        Instantly quote - pricing updates automatically

·        See immediate impact of changes
