Two of the KBB industry’s technology specialists, ArtiCAD and Anthill, have announced plans to integrate their core products.
ArtiCAD’s design and pricing software, ArtiCAD-Pro, is being integrated with Anthill’s CRM, process management and automation platform in a bid to create a single system designed to “sit at the heart of the essential everyday operations of KBB retailers”.
Speaking about the integration Theresa Turner, a director of ArtiCAD, said : “The synergy between our two companies is striking. We are both dedicated towards the success of the KBB sector and have strong track records in delivering robust, flexible solutions – underpinned by our constant investment in innovative technologies to help our customers sell. This is a very exciting announcement for ArtiCAD and, I am sure, for many of our retailers, who will welcome the opportunities and benefits delivered by such a powerful, all-encompassing business system.”
John Endeacott, founder and CEO of Anthill: “In bringing Anthill and ArtiCAD together, retailers will be able to deliver the best possible customer journey in combination with a streamlined and guided user experience. With the wealth of KBB expertise both organisations possess, the improvements a retailer can now make to their operation are game-changing.”
Watford-based design specialist, ArtiCAD, was founded in 1992 and has more than 7,500 UK users. It also has subsidiaries in Ireland, North America and South Africa and distribution partners on Australia, New Zealand and Spain.
Anthill, which launched in 2010 and is based in Yorkshire, specialises in CRM software, process management. In February last year it revealed it had achieved record sales, with business up 32% year-on-year.
