Bastian Groth from Treppenbau Voß talks about Compass Software

I can only recommend Compass Software. Personally, I have been working with the program for nearly 20 years. It is continuously being developed further and improved upon. The software’s scope is extremely wide when it comes to special cases, but it still covers all standard constructions for staircase building. I would say it is the best software in this field. The program is easy to understand and easy to use.

Bastian Groth - Head of Production

Treppenbau Voß GmbH & Co. KG from northern Germany is producing several thousand staircases with 5 designers and 3 CNC processing centers annually. For more than two decades, the company has been relying on Compass Software’s staircase construction software.

Since December 2018, the staircase builder has been utilizing the new Plate Optimization Module 2.0 that the software provider offers. Plate Optimization 2.0 promises optimal utilization of materials with minimal waste. The system calculates the ideal arrangement on the plate to achieve the least amount of residual material. Plates are utilized to the max. Additionally, the program includes a clear warehouse management tool and left-over plates are automatically re-used and added back into stock.
