Growth and change. This is the major theme noted by the Cabinets by Computer team in recent months. Not only have they seen major growth across their own business developments but have noted a significant transition among the cabinet making industry as a whole.
Across the past year Cabinets by Computer have majorly increased the reach of their free-to-use cabinet ordering website, goCabinets. A record number of new manufacturers have joined the popular service to supply cabinet makers across the country with customised cut-to-size cabinetry. Manufacturers are also utilising the advanced online ordering platform to streamline their own business operations, while being able to whitelabel the solution allows them to keep a firm grasp on their own branding.
Cabinet makers and builders from Hobart, Newcastle, Hervey Bay, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth, along with a plethora of other locations can now join existing users in receiving instant quotes as they connect to their local CNC manufacturers. “We’ve exceeded wildest expectations with the number of members that have signed up for goCabinets accounts to date and it’s great to know that we now have the capability to assist even more” mentions Justin Collins, goCabinets Project Manager.
“It’s especially important this time of year. We know a lot of cabinet makers can start feeling overworked and under-resourced, and we’re proud that we can offer an avenue to reduce their workloads and still maintain a high-quality output. Some of the most satisfying times are when we are able to link a customer whose machine has broken down, or their other flat pack supplier has let them down, with a goCabinets manufacturer who can fulfil their order in a timely manner. Being able to help out people like that really reminds us what the system is all about.”
The growth of a cabinet maker’s business is no longer reliant on the often expensive and time- consuming process of installing their own CNC machine and investing their time and money in learning how to use it. The goCabinets platform enables small businesses to offer the same output as large manufacturers. Through a few clicks of a button, a goCabinets registered user can utilise the latest machinery from the network of aligned goCabinets manufacturers, all without the overheads of machinery, staff and exorbitant factory space.
Through these growing capabilities, the whole industry itself is seeing a cycle of continual growth. With a growing number of users seeking to connect to CNC manufacturing, more manufacturers are seeing the reciprocal benefit from offering their cut-to-size services. The state of Queensland alone has seen a considerable increase in manufacturing capacity in recent months and allowed new cabinet makers from Burleigh Heads, right up the coast to Cairns to be able to order cut-to-size cabinetry through goCabinets. With a suite of new developments and features coming to goCabinets in 2019, Cabinets by Computer are excited to see the reach of the goCabinets network span out to encompass an even higher proportion of Australian cabinet makers and builders. ●
