Compass Software is one of the world leaders in software development for the staircase manufacturing industry. Compass Software offers complete solutions from planning a construction and three-dimensional visualization of designs to supporting nearly fully automated CNC processing.

Compass Software has also been able to offer CAM solutions for wood constructions for quite some time now. These are based on the BTL interface which is serviced by all customary construction software. All established machines can be controlled, just as it is possible with staircase manufacturing.

Furthermore, Compass Software is specialized in developing specific customized solutions to cover individual needs of the users.

For more than 30 years, the company, which currently employs a staff of 32, has been delivering innovative solutions for customers from more than 30 different countries around the world. Compass Software´s customer base includes companies of all sizes – from small businesses that produce only few staircases each month, to companies with industrial manufacturing that complete more than 15000 staircases each year.

More than 2700 customers have profited from our advanced expertise and extensive know how so far.

Comprehensive range of services:

:: Development and Marketing of Specialized Software Solutions for Staircase Manufacturing - Our integrated complete solution makes it possible to transfer everything that results from the planning process and construction on the computer directly to the machining center. Rapid data flow, which is based on a central database and an extremely powerful network solution, is guaranteed. Our software solutions, amongst others, includes:

  • Construction of staircases and 3D visualization

  • Price calculation, including detailed post calculation

  • Input of DXF data

  • Free adjustment of forms to fulfill various needs (e.g. ordering of production parts)

  • Automated loading of machines through robots

:: Installation and Configuration – Our qualified team will set up the software on-site, while  considering the individual requirements of each customer. We are experienced in connecting almost every type of CNC machine.

:: CAM Solutions for Wood Constructions – These are based on the BLT interface which is serviced by common construction software. Just as with staircase construction, all established machines can be controlled.
