Planit has become the exclusive distribution channel for Tractivity software for the U.S. woodworking market

Planit has become the exclusive distribution channel for Tractivity software for the U.S. woodworking market. This alliance between the two leading software providers in their respective areas of expertise means woodworking companies now have one source for design, rendering, manufacturing, and production planning and control software.

From entry-level design for manufacturing packages to a number of complete Screen-To-Machine™ options, Cabinet Vision or Cabnetware is often described by companies as the “mainstay” of their operation. Both products integrate room and cabinet design capabilities with manufacturing tools, enabling residential and commercial casework manufacturers to generate detailed drawings for use with building contractors and architects.

Tractivity software helps organizations streamline their operations and reduce costs while providing essential management tools to support critical decision-making. Bringing automation to the office environment, it enables staff to accurately track and report job costs while bidding and estimating with confidence thanks to its database of actual and historic job costs. It also centralizes information for improved communications, automates time and payroll policies enabling staff to spend less time performing routine office activities.

Planit Sales and Services Director Richard Chappell says it is becoming increasingly important for cabinet and casegood manufacturers to manage the operational side of their business. “We are excited about our new agreement with Tractivity which is in line with Planit’s strategic objectives to deliver first class software solutions to our woodworking markets. Now more than ever, it is critical for our industry to track and measure profitability within their business and Tractivity is a proven product to fill that need.”

Chris Madore, Tractivity President, adds: “Planit’s knowledge and experience enables Tractivity to help more woodworking businesses to streamline their day to day business processes, bridge islands of information, and to make better decisions based on actual time and cost measurements, leading to increased profits.”
