The Company is now the exclusive Chinese distributor of
imos AG, a leading technology company that develops a specialized set of
CAD/CAM tools built specifically for interior design and furniture products
manufacturers. This imos engineering product is already linked with
20-20 inSight for order entry, product configuration and shop floor
automation. 20-20 inSight is also integrated with Microsoft Dynamics AX.
“Now, manufacturers in China can design, sell, manufacture and manage
their operations on a digital data platform provided entirely by 20-20
Technologies,” said Jean-Francois Grou, President and COO of 20-20
Technologies. “Chinese exporters can extend their reach internationally, by
creating 3D electronic catalogs for 20-20 Design, our flagship application
used by thousands of dealers worldwide, which also enjoys 35 percent market
share in China. 20-20’s visualization technology makes selling their products
much easier, all integrated with our new manufacturing solutions, thus also
allowing them to produce much more efficiently,” he added.
20-20`s end-to-end solution includes software spanning from point-of-sale
to manufacturing. It begins with the customer-facing visualization tool
20-20 Virtual Planner. It allows consumers to design and plan spaces online in
2D and 3D, to zoom, pan and move items, from pre-set rooms or entirely from
scratch. Consumers can send through the web an itemized list to a local
retailer, where designers then import the data to 20-20 Design, for design
completion. Retailers can send the product order data to 20-20 inSight, linked
with imos AG and the Engineering Configurator. inSight is integrated with the
Microsoft Dynamics AX platform for ERP functionality, and also drives
production on the factory floor.
“20-20 can now provide the most powerful and comprehensive sales and
manufacturing solution in China, with all the components of that end-to-end
solution available in Chinese,” said Jean Mignault, CEO and Co-Chairman of the
Board of 20-20 Technologies. “In this context, 20-20 has partnered with
Sunrise China for integration and deployment services for the popular
Microsoft Dynamics AX platform and also with Homag China Goldenfield, the most
important woodworking machinery distributor in China, to improve
software-based automation of production equipment,” he added.
