How Our Cabinet Making Software Began.

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.

The advancement of cloud computing presented a huge opportunity to streamline quoting, ordering and production processes, and save hours of work for both clients and their manufacturers. goCabinets allows cabinet makers, builders and designers to order directly from a cut-to-size manufacturer in minutes, with pricing instantly available.

A layout planner, quick door & panel ordering, a benchtop designer, and an additional hardware store are just a few advancements made to the platform since its inception, including a complete reimagining of the platform's look and feel in 2021 to make it faster and easier than ever.
