Customised Software solutions are expansion modules that are
adapted and built onto the existing QikDraw Professional CAD
(Computer Aided Design) engine for the specific purposes of meeting the particular needs of
each client. This enables us to master a combination
of visual and calculative manipulations. With this in mind,
we believe that the most benefits of customising specific
modules using our proven CAD engine will be from
applications where there is a need for a combination of
GRAPHICAL and LOGICAL outputs.
In our experience, developing graphics
intensive applications using the QikDraw platform will take
less than half the time if compared to using other
platforms. The resultant application will also contain fewer
bugs and is much more reliable.
Current Example Usages of our Software
- Sheds - Retail and Manufacturing
- Carports - Retail and

An excellent example of customisation and a more specific offshoot of our customised
software solutions is our QikQuote package. This package,
customised to your specific quotation needs, allows you
to dynamically produce quotes, 2D layouts, council plans,
orders, 3D models and whatever else you need in no more than a few minutes.
This package is perfect for anything that is produced to
customer specifications, such as pergolas, sheds and verandahs.

your businesses efficiency. Find out more
Our Customised Solutions can be developed
from scratch or adapted from our existing library of
modules. An example of some of our existing modules include:
Product Quotations (QikQuote)
Timber Takeoffs / Measurements
Automatic Production of Sets of Drawings
Automatic Roofing and Guttering Generation

Top 5 Benefits of a Customised Solution
GREATER EFFICIENCY - REDUCE YOUR WORKLOAD
o By using a customised program to streamline production, you
will be able to manage a larger workload with the same
resources or the same workload with fewer resources.
Doing things long hand will always introduce the possibility
of errors. And errors translate into unbudgeted expenses.
With an automated and visually interactive system, the
chances of errors are greatly reduced.
COMPATIBILITY WITH EXISTING SYSTEMS
Our customisation allows up to output data into common
formats, such as “.TAB” “.CSV” or “.TXT”. This allows us to
output data to fit in with existing systems, such as
accounting or manufacturing systems.
EASE OF USE
We design the software to be as easy to use as possible.
to get a demo CD, so you can determine for yourself
how easy it is to use.
This also means that there is a
minimal need for training and there is a broader potential
user group, not just experts.
Because our software is built off our existing base, the
amount of development time can be greatly reduced and there
can be a greater assurance of software reliability
As each project is
unique, it is difficult to give a price for any particular
project. The main factors that will be considered when
determining the price of a project include complexity (the
amount of specifications and “rules” which need to be
applied to the overall software model), programming time,
time constraints (more intense production will incur greater
associated costs), and the quality of the specifications.
Following the completion of the project the
software will need to be maintained and enhancements can be
made to increase the functionality of the software.
Maintenance costs can either be done on an
hourly basis ($100$80+GST / hour, payed in blocks bought in
advance) or a set amount of hours per month for an annual
fee, to be negotiated. Normal maintenance on a not too
complex project should not exceed 5-10 hours per month.
Enhancements are extra modules that can be
adapted into existing software at a negotiable price per
project (again, depending on complexity). Generally an
enhancement will be produced at a discounted, more cost
effective rate than the creation of a new project, since we
have a base for the module to be added on to.
Beyond the costs of the project, there is an
annual licensing fee associated with the usage of our base
CAD package to operate the software. This is a flat discounted fee of $500 per license. Included in
the licence, is a fully functional version of the QikDraw
Professional CAD package.
This licensing fee also includes full
software maintenance and upgrades.
