“Being in the business of bespoke joinery and cabinet making, and with my business growing fast, I wanted to understand more about how I could speed up some time-consuming processes, especially in the production of complex parts and templates for each commission. In a few short consultations, a member of the team outlined and demonstrated CNC routing machinery and potential software that was within my budget and scope of needs. I am now seeing the benefits and am planning incremental changes in my workflow and business.“
