TechSoft UK Ltd was founded in the mid 1980s by Mike and Sue Brown, and soon established itself as the market leading supplier of CAD and CAD/CAM systems (Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacture) to schools, colleges and universities in the UK. Due to customer demand, our Project Management Service was launched in 2007 and since then we have undertaken many successful new-build and re-furbishment projects.
Our Sales and Training Team
TechSoft’s sales and training team spends pretty much every day in schools, colleges or universities, working with teachers in every part of the country to provide training, inspiration and advice about CAD/CAM systems and how best to incorporate them into the Design and Technology curriculum. TechSoft are corporate members of DATA and, as the leading CAD/CAM supplier for UK education, we make it our business to keep up to date with the latest thinking and developments in the subject. Our regionally based personnel have many years of classroom teaching experience between them, and have led workshop re-development programmes in their former roles. They all remain passionate about Design and Technology education in its widest sense.
TechSoft’s flagship CAD software TechSoft Design V3 (formerly called 2D Design), is now the principal design software in over 7000 schools and colleges and we are main education distributors for SOLIDWORKS - the industry leading 3D design software. We offer the most comprehensive range of CAM systems available (many of which are exclusive to TechSoft) and all are selected and supported to give years of reliable service. But we don’t just know about our products, we use them too. Whenever we talk to teacher groups, deliver training, or exhibit at shows, we show-off the huge range of projects that we have created ourselves. All use TechSoft resources, all have curriculum relevance and all demonstrate the ‘art of the possible’ for students.
CAD/CAM resources are, of course, only part of the picture when designing and equipping complete classroom layouts, and projects typically involve all areas of the practical curriculum. Our product range now includes specialist furniture as well as manual machinery and equipment to meet all likely needs for Design and Technology, Electronics and Control, Textiles and Art (including Ceramics).
Launched in 2007, our Project Management Service now has an impressive portfolio of successful projects and satisfied customers. TechSoft has exactly the right blend of experience, vision and skill to create stimulating and safe working environments for students and efficient, well resourced, facilities for teachers.
Our understanding and experience means we can advise on all the elements of an efficient and inspiring work-space. TechSoft handle all aspects of the installation from preliminary meetings through to drawings, delivery schedules and staff training. Our installation team has a wealth of experience with high-level commercial and domestic installation work. This means we can advise on appropriate M&E provision at the earliest stages and complete installation work to a high standard that meets all regulatory requirements.
Whether you’re planning a one-off software or equipment purchase, or a complete re-fit, why not talk about your options with one of our highly experienced personnel? Our core belief that ‘getting it right for teachers’ means person-to-person contact and an on-going commitment to provide advice, technical support and training long after the project (or product) is delivered.
All our sales and support staff are either ex Design and Technology teachers, graduates in Design and related fields or qualified engineers. This means that not only do we have a wealth of practical understanding; we understand the subject specific issues teacher's face on a daily basis.
