How Our Cabinet Making Software Began.
Software Developers with a Cabinet Making Touch
Launched in 2013, goCabinets is the flagship offering of Australian software company Cabinets by Computer (CBC).

The Cabinet Maker Problem
goCabinets is a product of years of research and development offering solutions to common cabinet maker problems.
When Gary was working as a cabinet maker, he became continually frustrated that he couldn't find software capable of doing everything he required. What Gary discovered during his search for software is that while cabinet making celebrated a proud history, to its own detriment it had not moved with the times. Failing to prepare for the future is preparing to fail.
When Gary could not find the ideal software solution, he set about making his own. During this period he spoke to many cabinet makers. "Too often, we were listening to cabinet makers lamenting the time and effort required to manually take orders from builders, cost out the job and then enter the job into the cutting queue." says Gary. What could be a simple process, was now taking hours or even days and costing hundreds of dollars in lost time. This is where goCabinets came in to bring about revolutionary change.
