INSIDER: How CorelCAD Continues to Grow—Unique Differentiation and Global Sales Channelarchitosh.com #CorelCAD_MobileJanuary 10, 2019
They originate from the computer systems of engineers and product designers—they emerge from the world of CAD (computer-aided design) software.
Indeed, the unique connection between CorelCAD and CorelDRAW is squarely aimed at both manufacturers but also other types of customers who need to create technical graphics from (.dwg) CAD files.
Back in 2015, Vossen explained Corel’s enterprise customers are some of the biggest industrial manufacturers in the world.
“So the AEC or the engineering sector has turned out as being a very attractive market for us,” says Vossen, “as that combination of CorelCAD and CorelDRAW benefits many of these companies also.”
Shown here is pushing (.dwg) data to CorelDRAW Designer as part of the workflow at ISBM in Germany.
“The way this company works is they first get (.dwg) files from their business partners and clients,” says Vossen, “and they then have to rework those files in a CAD and (.dwg) environment as source files.
While enterprise CAD customers are harder to penetrate and get to change out software, Vossen added that “we have seen quite a number of successes, but not as broadly demanded as we are seeing in the engineering sectors.” This is due to company size issues, he explains.
CorelCAD and CorelCAD Mobile today are compatible with the latest versions of Mac and Windows operations systems and iOS and Android.
And while the CorelDRAW connection is only beneficial to Windows users, Corel is deeply interested in its macOS version of CorelCAD.
What the company is finding out is that unlike other ARES Commander-based products, CorelCAD is being used more and more for 3D CAD work.
